    I don't know about speaking it, but writing it should be fairly easy. Just remember to throw in a smattering of letters you don't pronounce in any word and you should be good to go.

      This just reminded me... I know we’ve all spent the past couple of years ragging on American politics, and I think we’ve lost track of America’s biggest problem; the way you guys pronounce “foyer”.  It’s an abomination.

        We pronounce the way it's spelled. Next thing you'll be whining about how we pronounce zebra. Then you'll focus on where we hold our fork.

        We will stand firm. We won't be swayed. That r is there and we'll pronounce it, by god.

          But do you pronounce the ‘k’ in knife? Do you say “let’s go to the movies to-nig-hit”? I refuse to accept pronouncing things as they are spelled as a reasonable excuse. I will die on this hill.

          Also where do you hold your fork?

            Ok. It was mostly a joke.  It's just the way we pronounce it. I'll be honest, changing the er to an a sound sounds weird. I don't like the way it sounds. Like the way the English pronounce valet. Or people from Boston don't know what an r sounds like. All inexplicable.

            As for the fork. We juggle it left to right depending on whether or not our meat is over cooked. I read once it was a deliberate change, to thumb our noses at Europe, after the revolution. I have never been able to verify that so it must have been a joke.

    I learned French in conjunction with English when I was first starting to speak/read/write so I’m not sure how difficult it would be to learn as an adult in comparison to other languages, but I took Spanish classes in university and I found trying to pick up a new language to be super frustrating as an adult!

    I think it’s generally said that languages are easier to learn if they’re a part of a language family you’re already familiar with... so I guess if you know any of the Romance languages already French might be a bit easier to pick up.

      True.

      Also, it is way easier if you have someone that speak the language, or if you watch movies, etc.

      I'm learning French, on my own, no classes. I guess the hardest is the pronunciation. Italian was easier for me.

    I think the same, maybe Italian is easier than French. And I like to know is it successful to learn French on our own and write without grammar mistakes ?

    French like Spanish is a beautiful language. If I could give one piece of advise for kids coming up through the school system is to please do not ignore your opportunity to learn another language. Macho is not intelligence and as you grow up you will also grow wiser and its at that point when regrets set in. So don't miss the chance..

    Thank you for your comment and I'm happy to listen that because I'm learning French as a subject in my school. So I'm sure that I have chosen the best.
