    Default God.

    What has been your method of learning French thus far? How did you start off; how are you progressing; what websites did you use; what book(s) are you reading...? etc..
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    carnegie mellon has an open coursewear thing that has courses in elementary french I and II which i've been going through. i started with this 5 hour youtube video of french lessons i found. also the university of texas has a good web page on french grammar that i've been using.

    since i've gotten the basics down i've bee reading articles on lemonde.fr to get better at reading and picking up vocab, and i've been watching french movies.

    Right, so you did it in school, as did I and come this time next year I'll have an honour in honours level French. I was asking it from a self-taught prospective.

    you have to teach yourself in school to get familiar with it. i used lemonde, french.about.com and watched Euronews in french.

    -_- i hate learning other languages... i want a automatic translator(WHICH WILL HAPPEN REALLLLLLLLLL SOON ANYWAYS) Like google is soooooo close to having a device that you speak into and it spits out the other language to the people, and visa versa. It might already be out, but im talking about something mobile not google translate. I mean of course their are going to be small hiccups but it won't be any worse than someone with a 2~3 year education in that language.
    "As for me, all i know is that i know nothing"
