|You Should Learn French|
You are definitely a Parisian at heart. You just need your tongue to catch up...
Or re-learn French as the case may be. In fact, I need to spend time this summer re-immersing myself in French. But first, I'm trying my hand at Latin. You see, next year I will be studying in a research Masters in Theology program that requires reading proficiency by the end of the first year in a modern research language (hence the French). But as I am planning to study Ethics as my area of concentration, I also need to have some reading proficiency in Latin as well.
So, for the past two weeks I've spent an hour in the morning three days a week online for a Latin class. Really it's like a semi-private tutor, since there are only two of us in the class. Interestingly enough, the other person taking the class is also a Catholic Sister! What are the odds of that. My Latin teacher says it's certainly a first for him.
I did study two years of Latin during my first two years of high school. But truth be told, I don't remember much. Most of my memories involve my ill-fated attempt to build a diorama of pompeii out of sugar cubes. Good in concept, but you try using superglue on sugar cubes.
July and August I'm going to dig back into French. I had four years in high school, and lived in a french speaking country for ten months where I also took French classes. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things without too much trouble. We shall see!
