Why is French important to you? Why did you choose to learn it?
I just love the sound of the language and French music such as pop, jazz and rap :)
Well ... I love the sound of French, I guess you could put it like stripedkitty did ; ) but also because in Canada, it's a good language to know.
Just fell in love with the idea of it -- and then kept stumbling across authors I wanted to be able to read in the original. Camus, Colette, de Beauvoir...heck, I just want to be able to understand the French snippets in "Jane Eyre"!
I am french so hearing all of these good and wonderful opinions as to why French is a good language to know is amazing! There are so many aspects and experiences that tie into learning the French language. You get to connect with the culture, people, environment, and most importantly surprise yourself when you get a taste of a civilization you didn't know was interesting. So, therefore, this once again brings up the saying that "You will never know unless you try"! Keep on commenting! I like to hear from all of you and your opinions!
Like the fragrance of roses gently kiss your nose and senses in the summer garden- thats what French does to my ears. I have long loved the people and their cities and their towns and their ways. :)
I chose to learn french because I'm a dancer, and I thought it would help me understand more. The sound of the language is beautiful also.
I'm inspired to learn French from Keny Arkana, Medine, Soprano from his early years (Psychanalyse mixtape) and other rappers.
Exactly! Music is definitely a good way to further understand the meaning of the French languages along with other languages. It maes us familiar with the words so they are "chiseled" (so to say), into our mind set!
Because I have family in France and I want to be able to converse with them.
Low-hanging fruit? I already know Spanish and Portuguese and it seemed the next-most-useful romance language. I'm sort of doing it idly, and at this rate it'll probably take me 2-3 years to get to a conversational level, but I'm not putting in much effort, and it's super fun. Between the languages I already know, I'm recognizing like 90%+ of the vocabulary and grammar, tying it into stuff I already know...
...it's mainly the pronunciation and (bizarre) spelling that is making me think, but...that's kinda fun, it's like a puzzle game!
French is the language of my ancestors and has been forgotten in my family. I think it is high time I connect with my roots.
Because if you learn French, you will be able to understand people better and also get a high government job in both France and Canada. Also, if you live in Quebec, it's mandatory to learn.
I was going to Paris, and I thought it might be good to study a little. I had studied French some fifty years ago and haven't ever used it. I was taking the Rosetta Stone course, and I needed something to back it up. I do speak Spanish, and that has made it easier.
Yeah. I tried Rosseta Stone too, but duolingo just gives you extra practice absolutely for free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
