Félicitations! At some point it's really hard to become fluent without living in a french speaking country, or making regular immersive trips. Or marry a french speaking woman.. that worked fine for my spanish ;p

"Fifty Million Frenchmen is a musical comedy with a book by Herbert Fields and music and lyrics by Cole Porter. It opened on Broadway in 1929 and was adapted for a film two years later. The title is a reference to the hit 1927 song "Fifty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong" by Willie Raskin, Billy Rose, and Fred Fisher, which compared free attitudes in 1920s Paris with censorship and prohibition in the United States. The musical's plot is consistent with the standard boy-meets-girl plots of musical comedies of the first half of the twentieth century."

The tiny bit of French I thought I knew: ie "50,000 frenchmen can't be wrong" Turns out I had the number wrong by a few zeros.

Nevermind. Congrats.

What french speaking country shall you visit first ?

Congrats! I found French a little difficult, so I salute you for doing what I wish I could! I hope you reach your desired level of fluency and get to travel to every French speaking nation ;)
