I am painfully aware that my personal failing when it comes to learning languages is my inability to listen. Being quite a visual person if I can see words on a page I find it easier to comprehend. I think my main problem with listening is my poor short term memory. Sometimes I need to listen to a whole sentence in French in order to make sense of it in English, but if I have forgotten the sounds at the beginning before the person speaking has got to the end I am screwed! Therefore, in order to help me learn more French words and phrases and become more familiar with French language in general, I have decided to watch as many French television series and films as I can. If I’m going to indulge myself in such a way I might as well make myself useful. Please enjoy my personal reviews of the shows and movies as I watch them.
