french class at the mission home

On Wednesday's we have French class with all the old Senior missionaries. It is a combination of the teacher Elder Asey who has taught French in jr, sr, and college levels and a Rm from France, and other s who have used French on their mission, others who are spouses who may have taken French in school (that would be me) and others who can hardly speak English and that would include many others. Our poor teacher has to keep it interesting and uplifting and stimulating for 2 hours. Well, that is very hard for those who can not sit for longer that 1 hour (that would be me). Anyways today , he held all of our attention when he acted out, in French of course.. Goldie locks and the 3 bears ( Jim thought it was Little Read Ridinghood and wanted to know what was going on) Anyways, a good way to learn a language is with childrens literature. Jim bought a children.s dictionary with pictures and I bought a high school French histoire book because I love history and want to know more about the people and I am trying to read the Histoire de France adult 3 part book but am only comprehending about one or two parts per page, that is why I had to buy the high school version. So, to learn something new, simple simple, and today Jim said the opening prayer and the teacher said I tip my chapeau (hat) off to you, you are learning!!! It is working > we are getting more language, Au revoir for now
