PORTRAIT DU MOIS
His background, experience, and wise advice
I initially fell in love with the French language during a bicycle trip from Germany to Le-Grau-du-Roi, where he encountered French people who spoke differently from what they had learned in school. They were drawn to the less rigid lifestyle and culture in France compared to their home country.
I would like to offer some pragmatic advice for learning French, including learning vocabulary from context, understanding the gist of conversations, and immersing oneself in spoken French. Also I emphasize the importance of thinking in French rather than translating from one's native language.
I often reminisce about my experiences in various regions of France, including the Atlantic coast and mountainous areas.
