One of the steps I took when I started this new french session was changing my phone to french. At first the effect was not great; my use of my phone decreased, lol. Being a social lover (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others), I finally forced myself to use my phone and make sense of all I was seeing and soon it became a better experience. And while it doesn't really help me with grammar and making sentences (which is what I struggle with the most), it sure increases my vocab.
So here are the new words my phone has enabled me to learn, obviously these are the very common words you see when using a mobile phone with example in parentheses;
Supprimer: To Delete (to delete the a not so pretty selfie)
Annuler: To Cancel (to cancel the unwanted app downloading)
Ouvrir: To Open (to open a new photo)
Telecharger: To Download (to download a photo from the web)
Chargement: Loading...(when you turn on your twitter app and it says "loading")
Rechercher: To Search (to search/scanning for wi-fi networks in your area)
Enregistrer: To Save (to save the new file you received in your email)
*sigh* Oh Lord I am patiently waiting till I am fluent in speaking and can rack up a whole blog post in french! Till then I'd manage English and a few pidgin here and there :)
Question of the Day: Are you learning a new language or have you learned one? Apart from the famous and obvious "Go to a place where the language is spoken" technique of learning, do you have any other techniques that works for you? If so, do share!
