I'm taking this intensive French course.
It's really hard. I come home every day exhausted. Just wrung out by it.
It's really amazing how much I've forgotten.
And how many French verbs there are. Hundreds? Thousands?
I think I use about 10.
And how many tenses there are. I think there are 16?
I use 3.
Anyone want to jump in and sympathize or tell me I'm crazy?
I did this exercise this afternoon. Remember what we used to do in spelling class when we were kids, using the word in a sentence? So my exercise was to conjugate the verbs and use them in a sentence. I think we were working on futur simple. And and I felt like every damn word I said needed correcting.
I don't know if the teacher was sorry for me or just disgusted. Maybe some of both. He sent me home early.
