Studied it five years in Jr. and Sr. High, and two years in college. Have had some opportunity to practice it on trips to and through France and Belgium. Vocabulary and grammar need a lot of work, but I can more or less communicate, and have been told that I have a good accent for an American.
Native Baltimorean who spent time in Europe, notably junior year in Bologna many moons ago. I still have Francophone friends, and like to shake the rust off my limited French from time to time.
