Ste-Anne, part 5 (May 15 continued - first day of classes)

Heh. Going to the language lab today was a humbling experience. It’s there I discovered that the way I’d been taught to pronounce many French sounds was all wrong! The woman in charge of the lab is a phonetics professor.

Hmm… sitting down just to type this kind of took the wind out of my sails. I’ll publish what I have so far, and see how it goes from there. I’m going to pick up a conjugation book today; if I hurry, I might be able to get it before my conversation workshop.

I must mention the information session. It was the funniest thing ever. They keep it at a level where we can get the jokes, and it makes the experience go a lot more smoothly. In general, they do an excellent job here of making French fun.

Time to go get my photo ID. That’ll be a nice souvenir!
