    MY daughter is a dual citizen so the American in her would like benefit from speaking Spanish especially if she winds up in school down there. Lots of time to decide and learn that stuff we gotta get the basics of English, getting dressed and using the potty down first, she's only 20 months old!

      Why oh why do I remember that?
      The Thibaults were a thing in the 70s when I took my french. Oddly enough Jacques habite place d'italie au paris is one of the only things I remember as well - probably because it was one of the only things I could pronounce properly back then.

      I love languages but when I think back to grades 7 through 10 French I realize what a total waste it was especially with the method of teaching french they used.....those dumb *** slides with the Thibaults and the crappy quality audio on an old school tape recorder that the French teacher could never quite master - most of my "French" memories are of a tape recorder screeching as it fast forwarded or reversed with the head dragging on the tape.

                  I remember these videos, the narrator is what’s so familiar for me. I just can’t remeber what year(s).

                    I remember writing and saying “The pen is under the table” over and over again in French. Along with other generic school phrases. That’s about as far as I progressed.

                          The struggle was real. French CBC or a distorted glimpse of a boob through the scrambled porn station.

                              I was about 13 when I was asked by my parents to babysit the neighbors kid so they could go to a bonspiel piss up.

                              to convince me they said you know they have a dish and even a descrambler. They didn't know what that meant but I sure as heck did. Needless to say I agreed to sit.

                              My French teacher was Austrian and I'm sure spoke more languages than the Pope. Didn't learn anything though not his fault. If i could pick one language to learn it would be Spanish.

                                I like the good guttural, growling languages like Gaelic and German. Lots of phlegm and spitting.
