Bonjour! Je m'appell Jake!
My first French class went well last night. There are only eight students, and four of us are gay! As I walked in the building, I ran into two guys holding hands, and they ended up being in my class. And I registered with my friend Keith, so our people have 50% representation in the classroom. Woo-hoo!
The class is at a very early beginner level -- the alphabet, which letters get pronounced, how to make nasal sounds, etc. But we covered a lot of material, and I think I'll learn a lot. Liza, my officemate at work, even lent me two French books, so I can conduct my own extracurricular practice.
Now if I could just find a cute, datable guy, we could practice other aspects of French with each other.
