I am off back to school a week on Thursday. This will be my new hobby, evening classes to learn French. I am looking forward to it but a bit nervous as well. I left school at 16 and went straight out to work. When I was 18 I did an evening class to study Marketing but that is all really in terms of further eductation much prefering real life (i'm 33 now). I did Spanish at school and was ok at that and when we go away I try and ask for things in French as much as I can just what I have picked up from hubby and the phrase book. He is dead jealous but he has to be at home to sort the kids....shame, so I am going with a girlfriend . It's a 38 week course so hopefully I will be able to keep up what with my mummy brain and all!
