Je Veux Apprendre le Français



So, I've had a lot of free time lately. And I've been wanting to learn French forever, why not just start. Yesterday, I started with learning the French alphabet, (I'm still a bit confused about the U sound). I think I want to get A French Alphabet Book of 1814, which was published by Rizzoli. It is a charming collection of watercolor illustrations of French country life, along with lovely examples of hand lettering. Everyday I plan to learn a new French word and make flash cards. I also figured I could watch movies in French with English subtitles (and vice versa). I know I have a long way to go, but baby steps first. Tonight, I'm watching Bee movie in French.
