An email to his folks…

Salut (insert names),
Merci pour ton email et desolée for not replying earlier. J’ai eu beacoup de travaille dans deux ou trois semaine dernier après mes vacances. C’est tres fou à mon bureau! (There was restructuring and I changed places – my workstation/table – again – this is the fourth time in eight months!)
Samedi dernier, j’ai aidé mon frère à déménager; sa nouvelle maison est plus près chez moi. La maison est grande mais un peu sale parce qué il y avait beaucoup de rénovation. (He installed solar panels for hot water, awnings for a porch and airconditioning – all in one day!) J’étais chez lui toute la journée. Dimanche, je suis restée à la maison et j’ai regardé la télé. Il ne s’est rien pas.
Lundi, parce qué c’est jour férié (il y avais le jour de travaille), je n’ai pas travaillé. YAY! Je suis toujours contente quand je n’ai pas travaillé! ^.^
C’était un weekend calme!
Apart from that, my French classes have been good. It is getting harder – am now learning imparfait together with passe composé and a few other things. But enjoying it a lot! There is also knitting and watching some French films – Trois Couleurs: Rouge/Bleu/Blanc.
Life is good and quiet, and I’m hardly complaining!
How are things?

  1. je ne comprends pas half of what you’re saying though i get the gist of it, wish i could learn more french than what i know now, but classes are really expensive. 🙁 do you know any french swear words? i bet it wasn’t from those alliance classes if you do :d

  2. Try online dictionaries (tip: google “French dictionary” + “online” – you’ll come across some pretty good guides). Actually compared to some places, what I’m paying is cheap for 30 hours per level. 🙂
