Did you study French in high school or college?

I did study in high school. But then in college I kind of veered of fin another direction and didn't take a language. I regret that now because I could have taken advantage of so many classes where I went to college.

Now it's a little bit like starting over in some ways. I do remember a lot, but not as much as I'd hoped!

I would have liked learning it, my high school education was focused in English (no surprise there), although some careers in the humanities do see French, and even notions of Latin. I was a science student in high school so for me English was the only foreign language in sight, but I would have liked very much to have had the opportunity to learn French in my high school years. Very much indeed.

I am currently learning French in high school, but due to scheduling issues I have a gap year between French last year (my second to last French class) and the last French class offered at my school. In college, I might start to learn another language rather than continue in French.

I've been studying it since I was 11 years in school. So I started at the middle school. (But in Germany middle- and high school are often the same.)

I wish I did. I grew up being trained in Chinese and as much as I appreciate it, I just prefer french a lot more even though technically it is a little less practical and useful for me since I have lots more people to talk to around me in Chinese than in french. Overall though I just like the language the most out of every other one including my own native one. Not that I dislike the Chinese language or my local one but I just have such an affinity for the french language that I sometimes wish I had spent the initial few decades of my life learning that instead.

The few  things I know from french language is mostly self-taught with flashcards, I use Anki decks to review vocabulary, but I suck big time with grammar.

Hi 

Yeah you need to work on your conversational French again. You'd be surprised how fast you can speak french if you already started learning it.
It takes a lot of time but the more you practice the better you get !

An american friend of mine started learning French on his own 7 years ago while meeting a lot of French speakers
Now he's fluent, lives in Paris and is a French tutor. ^^

Here's a couple lessons and tips on his youtube channel
