In order to finish my eternal love-hate relationship with the French language, I thought that my readers, family and friends could make the decision for me. Now the decision has been made - it was a tough one indeed, a draw until yesterday when the girls decided, after quite a few bottles of wine (none of which was French by the way), that the answer would be yes.
My plan does not involve moving to France or even speaking with a Frenchman, all I want to do is read some French writers without the need of a dictionary. In order to get this thing going, I have decided to set myself a goal: read three books in French over the summer.
