Blogging from A to Z - April (2016) Challenge : My Theme for the Challenge


When I came across the A to Z blogging challenge for the month of April-2016, I felt both excited and overwhelmed at the same time. I am still not sure if I would be able to maintain my consistency; however, I am going to take the advice of experts and follow the tips given in Corinne Rodrigues' post

After going back and forth to several theme ideas, I have decided to select the theme of "Learn a Little French Every Day." While this theme may not draw a huge audience to my blog, it would definitely help me maintain my French learner spirit high. After all, there is nothing wrong in doing something for your own good ;)

So, what I am going to do is, select a verb each day, explain its meaning, usage by a few sample sentences in various tenses, and one or two proverbs (if possible) using this verb. I think it's going to be an amazing learning curve for me, and I'm very excited about it.

Hoping to get constructive criticism from natives, too.

À bientôt, mes amis!

  3. that sounds REALLY interesting - could you include a link to one of those "how to pronounce it properly" sites each time so we can sound French we say it :)

    3. I'll do my best to make this learning experience fun and accurate for all of us. I get what you are saying, Leanne :) There is nothing worse than killing the rhythmic pronunciation of this language. Let's see how it goes!

  7. Years ago, I tried to self-teach myself French (through reading a book, not through speaking it). My husband speaks it, although not well. I have a feeling you may get more of a readership than you think. Good luck!

    1. Thanks a lot, dear! I signed up for weekend classes and studied till intermediate level. Recently, I quit this course due to time management problem; however, I love the language and cannot wrap my head around the idea of quitting it. This theme selection is my attempt to hold on to this beautiful language. Hoping to make the best of this opportunity and learn something from the readers, as well.

  20. Such a great theme!
    I've always wanted to learn French. When I was a teenager, I bought a pocket French-English dictionary...so that tells you.

    My theme will showcase one or two (sometimes three) bloggers/authors every day. I'll post their book covers and also a link to my reviews.
    See you around on the A to Z circuit.
