I don't speak French like Charles deGaulle, but I have a bit of facility and can carry on a telephone conversation.
To say I am a student would be an error. I am enrolled in a French class with the Learning in Retirement group. I have not spoken French very much during the past 5/6 years.
French cinema, Tour deFrance, motorsports, social gatherings where rench is only language spoken.
My name is Bill Noel, and I live in Northampton. I learned French at the Alliance Francaise in NYC and speak it fairly well. In a group/crowd I may miss the nuance but will gather the essence of what is being said.
Worthwhile and worthy of future participation.
