100 Days of French~ Update 1

Day 18:

I had hoped to do daily updates, but my life has been a bit busy lately (more on that coming soon). But despite the influx I have been keeping up with my daily French engagement. I mostly am focusing on Pimsleur lessons. However, Pimsleur is quite formal according to my boyfriend. So I try to get his opinion on other ways to say things.

I’m also making periodic voice recordings of myself speaking French spontaneously–without notes. I want to see how my speaking improves as I continue this challenge. Perhaps as I get better I will post a link to the embarrassing attempts. I think I will add writing to that as well.

I also found this YouTuber. I enjoy her videos:


Comme une Francais.


100 Days of French Challenge

I started a language challenge for myself that I hope I can stick to. I’ll be trying to study French for 100 days straight. No breaks. I should’ve started a blog post on the first day of my challenge, but I wanted to give it some time to make sure I was actually going to try and stick with it.

I set this challenge myself and made up the rules. They are as follows:

Engage with the target language for AT LEAST 30 minutes per day.

This can be through learning a song, watching a movie, listening to a podcast, etc.

Memorize 10 vocabulary words.

Pretty self-explanatory.

Use at least one of the words in conversation. 

I keep daily notes in a journal but may move to making blog posts instead.

I’m closing on Day 011 of my challenge. Some resources I’m using are:

Pimsleur French I


and French videos from Damon&Jo on YouTube.
