I have taken 5 years of French before entering UVA and I have not always had the best instructors. I’m looking forward to and hoping that I can strengthen my grammar. I want to gain a strong foundation in order to excel in higher levels of French. Grammar is definitely my weakest point. Listening and speaking is a bit easier, but my pronunciation could use some work. I have visited France a few years ago, but I plan on returning or even studying abroad in some French-speaking country. I’m really excited because I have not always felt confident in my French skills, but I’m ready to work hard and hopefully see a lot of change by the end of the semester.
