je nes comprends pas

i've started my french lessons yesterday night. i biked to alliance francaise from my unit and parked my MTB in the basement. so far, so good. i can tell you a few things, like:

bonjour. comment ça va? je m'appele alman. et toi? j' habite à makati city et quezon city. je suis avocat. je suis philippin.

it's only the first day, so it does appear like i could've just picked these out of a french phrase book. hopefully, i can carry out short conversations in french by march. so far the class is ok. our instructor refuses to speak a word of english or filipino. i hope her strategy works.

i seem to be one of the older folks. but we have really young people (étudiants), including imports (thailandaise et coréenne). i enjoy language classes, and i regret not having pursued my spanish lessons. i'm in luck because the office is paying for the classes, so i don't mind, and i intend to keep taking french classes while i'm with the EU.

after being out of school for nearly 6 years now, i'm excited to study stuff again. i plan to take up cooking lessons in the next few weeks. my evenings are really boring most of the time, and i have got lots of free time. but i hope i still have time to devote to gym and running.

i'm buying a french-english dictionary later.
