    AH! I have to rant. My french teacher is a [darn] and doesn't teach french worth sh!t so I will probaly fail it and make myself look like a total idiot. On top of that I will really dissapoint my mom. And now, I have a 100 mark project due sometime this week or next week and don't have a clue if I am doing it right. I just finished writing a 305 (yes I counted) work paragraph/essay thing. I just remembered that she used to be a english teach too, and I don't have a single paragraph (who would have thought the french have paragraphs too /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif) so there goes more marks. Hopefully I do well on it, because I also have to do an oral presentation with it, and I can't pronouce most of the words "properly". Grrrrrrrrrrrr /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif There goes another [darn] bunch of marks /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    At least when I am done this course (5 days /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif) I won't have to do it again. I would have cheater for the essay and went on a translation sight, but I'm not that kind of person /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I'm done with my rant. Have a good evening /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    when i did it in grade 9 (the only year you have to) i just stopped doing all the work, compleatly i would just read a book. they tested me because they thought i was dumb no i am just a smart ass, i blew the test away.
    When the resorse teacher asked me what i wanted form this course i said 51%
    she says oh just a pass?
    no: 50% a pass i want 51%
    oh your just a smart ass
    all i did was show up and did the exam no way i really passed and i got 51% /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    I'm not trying to knock you, but did you think taking French was going to be easy?
    Study some more and LISTEN to how french is pronounced. Just as my 4 year old daughter learned English by listening to me and mimicking me, you have to learn pronounciation the same way.

    After I got out of school, I had no one to speak French to. You know how instructions for items you buy come in several languages? Occasionally, I would read it in French. I have pretty much entirely lost it all in the intevening 10 years.

    What can I say, except adios. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    No I knew french was going to be hard. I went into it because I wanted to learn a new language, but instead of being a fun learning experience it's been a nightmare. That's just for me, some thing come easy for some people, some things don't. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    My son took 2 years of German and loved it until his 3rd year......the teacher was a joke and he's not taking it again. Unfortunately there are bad teachers out there, just plow through it and do the best you can to try and finish strong! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    If we didn;t have a lot of poor migrant workers we wouldn't have a McDonalds on every corner and a bit less crime, which is allllllll right with me

    About the French...Et toute le monde? Anybody know that moderately successful song?

    Don't worry Steverino, it'll be fine. Buckle down and focus, ya can't ask more of yourself than that, right?
