I have never been to France but I love many things about ‘French’!
It’s been a heartfelt desire to learn French- the most beautiful and subtle language in the world. I have tried earlier but it’s funny that I couldn’t go far…ever.
I wished ‘Bonjour’ to this romantic language for the first time some 10 years ago when I applied for a certificate course in the University, and also made it to the merit list but had to say ‘Au-revoir’ before it actually began (Reason: an outing with friends on the day of counselling 😉 ).
Next year ‘encore une fois’ (once again), I planned to learn French with a fellow researcher. Initialemen (Initially), we were determined but ‘au bout du compte’ (ultimately), I ended up alone. (Last year I couldn’t do it due to the ‘company’ and this year I had to leave it due to the ‘lack’ of company :().
After all these years, now I again thought of achieving my unfinished goal, and very enthusiastically applied for the course. Guess what! The list is already late by almost 15 days due to some sort of strike in the department.
Can you believe that?
Seems like all forces are conspiring against my ‘French Dream’!
But whatever it is…I’m not giving up this time! By the end of this year, I ‘m determined to go beyond, ‘aloo madam! Comment ca va?’
And be like “Ca va bien, Merci!” 🙂
