Our French school experience so far in three photos:

Our first day of LMF, pre-placement test.  Happy teachers back in the classroom after three days off, but this time as students!  Meaghan is in level 6 and I am in level 2 :)

Meaghan, on Day 2, getting ready to sing some French songs with everyone in our program. What you can’t see is the lead singer – he had a guitar and harmonica, awesome!

As soon as I got home I put my feet up on the wall (I biked 25kms today and on Monday = shredded quads) and had a sweaty snuggle with Franklin (his choice, definitely not mine). I’m exhausted from listening to French all day long, but also impressed that I actually know more than I thought I did!

Thoughts after our first full day of LMF?

Karley: My German brain is struggling to make space for new French vocab and grammar and I’m constantly thinking in German…so annoying!  I’m impressed with myself because I actually understand a lot more French than I thought I would…that being said, my writing and speaking is atrocious.  LOTS to learn!   Grateful for our “Atelier” today – Hip Hop (or, ‘Ip ‘Op, en Francais!) I basically told Meaghan we had to do Hip Hop because I needed to feel like I was good at something this week.  Meaghan has the French skills (she’s in Level 6!) so I figured we’d make a good French Hip Hop team 😉  We rocked it.

Meaghan: I love speaking French again; however, I’m a little nervous about being in Level 6 (high intermediate to advanced).  Very happy to have sunshine and the time to eat lunch outside and soak in that sunshine!  Hip Hop was great today; I am more than happy to get additional exercise than additional French lessons 🙂 So far all the participants and teachers in LMF have been great!

Day 3, here we come! Bedtime, 7pm tonight?
