Speak more French than just French fries
There is something about hearing French that is both comforting and exciting. It is quite hard to put a finger on it. It feels like the words and the manner of their pronunciation emerges with the careful balance of the mystery associated with a foreign language and a certain softness, creating the subtle mellowness of what makes this language so pleasing to the ears. This could be the reason why world-famous fantasy fiction writer and King of Horror Stephen King once uttered a quote about this tender vocabulary. “French is the language that turns dirt into romance,” as the well-known author put it. Facts.
Widely thought of as the language of love, French is exceptionally considered as a Romance/romance language in both technical and figurative aspects. A descendant of Vulgar Latin, French belongs to the Latin and Neo-Latin languages which are more commonly called Romance or modern languages. In a sense, this came to have a metaphorical meaning as French, invariably spoken in the city of love, has since been universally known as an unparalleled language of romance and affection.
Due to its exotic nature as a language coupled with such distinct sound, French is oftentimes misconstrued as hard to get by and learn. If truth be told, and by all surprising means possible, the French language is in fact an easy language to learn, sometimes even easier than English. Let that sink in.
The reality is that because it is such a different language from your native one, the impression is oftentimes blurred by that fact, hindering you from actually finding out if it’s feasible to learn, in this case, French.
