Basic French

Learning french language isn't easy at all and it doesn't happen for 1 night only. You must have the interest to learn the language and you must have super patience as it is quite difficult. What makes it difficult? First, the pronunciation. The way it is written and the way it is pronounced it completely different. Second, each verb has it's own conjugaison from first person singular form to the 3rd person plural form. 3rd, everything has a gender here. For example: a chair is a feminine form, Cambodia is a masculine form. Each phrase must coordinate to eachother but it isn't bad to have an incorrect grammar at all. Besides, it's part of learning right? What is interesting in travelling here in France is not just the tourist attractions here or the very famous Eiffel Tower but the language itself. I tell you, if you can interact with others even just the simple words or phrases, it feels good. It is a challenge. So right now, I am sharing you some of the basic french just incase you'll visit me here in France hehehehe....OPPPS
