    I always thought it was strange that Sylvie was in our class, taking French, when it was her primary language.

    We used to have these tapes that had French conversational phrases:

    "Dis donc. Ou est la bibliotheque?"
    "Je m'appelle Paul. Je voudrai tu presenter Marie Leblanc."

    Those I never forgot!

    Something I never understood is that in English, if we are expressing hunger or thirst, we say, "I am hungry." "I am thirsty." In French, it's I have hunger and I have thirst (J'ai faim and J'ai soif). The etre and the avoir are reversed.

    Welcome to the forums friend! I took French in 7th grade, but I'm not going to embarass myself trying to remember any of it, so a firm handshake and "hello!" will have to do for me
