Je parle un peu le francais

"I speak a little French"

This is the phrase I keep saying over and over so that I don't forget it when I go to France. Somehow, I keep forgetting the un peu part. It's the middle section. That's usually the hardest part of anything to learn/remember.

Je parle un peu le francias. And the other is Parle-vous anglais? It's all in a book that I bought....color coded and all, but I'm afraid I'm going to forget and won't be able to find it in the book. It's more of a phrase book and a dictionary. It's cool, HOPEFULLY, it works for me.

Cherie and I will be thrown into the French Culture as soon as we get there. We're going to do a whirlwind tour of Paris, then fly out the next day to our final destination Evian. YEP, where the water is bottled. COOOOOL. Not sure what the plan is past that...but it'll be good. And I'm taking both of my memory cards so that I can take tons of photos. I'm nervous, anxious, and excited all in one breath. Je parle un peu le francais. It's helping to type it out.

Maybe I should start writing down all the phrases I want to remember over and over. Like I did in French class. I took 5 years of French. So that will help with pronouncing things a LITTLE better than the average American. Although, I remember le bibliotechique. I think the spelling is wrong, but that's a library. I will hopefully be updating everyone about the trip while I"m out there...and post a photo or two.

The France update....not until next week unless I want to babble about how little I know. Til then! - Leigh
