Like most Americans, I never learned a second language. It’s a source of regret and shame for me, so I’ve occasionally made attempts to learn new languages over the years. I’ve made linguistic stabs at Spanish, French, and Japanese, all with marginal results. Of those, the language that most intrigues, delights, and frustrates me is French, so I’ve returned to it most often.
My most recent attempt combines my love of French with my love of singing. I’ve decided to learn some French songs by heart. I’m sure it will be a fun project, and I believe it will improve my French language skills. At least I’ll be more dangerous at karaoke.
