What is it with French and Paris in particular? I love hearing the Romantic (in historical and current meaning) language of French and I always thought it would be so improbable for me to learn to speak it. Not because I have no desire to but because I thought: “But where would I use it?” I’m still not an expert but I can now understand beaucoup, beaucoup thanks to podcasts and my Québécois of a husband. And if push comes to shove, which is what will happen with our upcoming trip to Paris, I will be able to talk the talk. In the meantime, I’m Paris dreaming.
