Alright, let's do this! I have always been interested in the French language. It just sounds awesome, sexy and amazingly professional, especially as it is widely spoken in my Organization (one of the six official languages). In 2009, I took the first step to be close to speaking French by taking advantage of free lessons my employer offered. It definitely was helpful as it demystified some of the language rules. Like, not every alphabet in a word has to be pronounced and was in time to help out my son with his beginner French course assignments!!! Then, I started buying audiobooks, dictionaries etc. But I must admit I wasn't very thorough due to my demanding work schedule. But now I am completing my Frantastique online French lessons offered by Gymglish and I am loving it. What I love most is the interactive and humorous clips, dialogues, stories and robotic tutor that really cracks me up. But in earnest, my reading and understanding are getting better by the day. Now, I just need to find some to speak French with. I can't wait to complete the first batch of my lessons. Keep it going Gymglish/Frantastique :)— Tigist M. (Addis Ababa, UNITED STATES)
