French...do French....

Hee hee! I'm in love with France and with French. It's definatly worth doing. I've also done Latin, which is really boring until you're in the 4th year and translating literature. I spent so many long long long hours with Vergil's Aeneid.... But I really suggest French and it won't be too hard to pick up with a familiarity in Spanish. I find that I can read a fair amount of Spanish and Italian and my immersion friends can read a good amount of French.

I'm planning on taking Russian this year- I haven't completed my course schedual, but I think I'll sign up for Intermediate since I already have a good understanding of it and can read it- I just hope my level is equal in writing, I suppose I'll just have to take the placement test in the fall to find out. I never took any real classes, but my dad has been giving me occasional lessons for years, since he is from Russia.

As for French, I'm hoping to have time in a different semester for a conversational French class, or something like that- I reached level six in high school, but I was never really great at French, though I'm very into the culture and music. I have been doing some translations for fun (*gasp*), but for speech a real immersion program/semester abroad would be the best thing. I just don't want to lose the language altogether, after working at it for so many years; it took me so long to finally develop a real appreciation for French, so I'm just hoping to have a good opportunity to study it at Drew.

I did all French immersion in Brest France with IU Honors. (They bring over a group of kids for a homestay program in Brittany with the major rule of no English for two months.) My spoken and listening comprehension are fairly good, and I know I have a really good reading/writing. Latin, I decided to drop for the time being. I'll probably take a placement test, but I don't know if I want to continue.

I took four years of latin in high school, and plan to continue with it in college. It's a great language, and very challenging. I highly recommend at least taking a beginner course to see if you might like it.

I need to become fluent in german by the time i reach graduate school for my major, so i'll be taking german in the fall too. I've begun teaching myself some basic german with a computer program, so I won't be so lost in the fall, but I'll definately be in the beginner class.
