French is an intricate, yet beautiful language. The way the words are pronounced are as soft as butter and dulcet to the ears. Yet learning the whole language is just as difficult as learning your first language. The more you delve into the subject, the more facts you find that you need to imbue. Like how the vernacular comprises of idioms, genders (even to objects and places), and the organization of the sentence structure feel topsy-turvy at first. But that's what makes learning a foreign language fun, and the next thing you know, your french class makes inside jokes relating to it, and even adding it on a T-shirt. Of course, there are more benefits of learning a foreign language which i can't explain all on here.

The french language is wonderful. The language is kept clean from outside influences as well so that slang never catches on. I wish that I could speak it fluently.

"ZOOM OUT FOR A SECOND, and this entire scene can seem deeply silly: a group of adults frantically trying to hide the image of two Frenchmen in their late 30s wearing costumes that make them look like C-3PO after a well-tailored disco makeover. But once you spend any time with Daft Punk—or even just listen to their music, or watch their videos, or gawk at their live show—such protectiveness suddenly becomes understandable, even necessary. It's an instinct to keep the idea of mystery alive at a time when it seems to be in historically short supply." Read more on pitchfork.com

In French, the word for 'today' is ' aujourd'hui '. Weird, right? In actual fact, the word is a contraction of SIX different words; au le jour de l'hui. This translates literally into 'on the day of today'. In an older version of the language 'hui' mean't 'today', but verbally, this was too similar for the word meaning 'yes' - 'oui' and became confusing. Over time, the contraction used in today's French was developed. Now, ' aujourd'hui ' translates into English as 'the current day'.
