You know that thing that say about not taking yourself too seriously when learning a language, I think I fully comprehend it today. I just downloaded memrize and I'm learning the basic words in French for a start. This is what I've learned so far;

Hi- Salut(Pronounced 'saluu')


What's up- quoi de neuf(literal translation is 'what of new') still learning how to pronounce this.


Allons-y!- Let's go(pronounced Alunsiii)(literal translation is 'we-go-there)


Santé!- Bottoms up!(pronounced 'sontay') (literal translation is 'Health')


Oui- Yes (pronounced as 'we')


Non- No (still practicing pronunciation)

S'il vous plaît- Please ( I'm here wondering why such a short word deserves such long translation in French)


Merci- Thank you (I noticed there's a guttural sound to it when pronouncing this)


Bonjour- Good morning or good day.


Bonne nuit- goodnight (pronounced bon nuwit)


I think that's enough for today. I'll just go ahead and keep repeating these words.

Oh french. I always liked this language, but for some reason it was given to me with great difficulty. Several attempts failed. Although maybe I'm just not ready for it yet. Could you share your life hacks? How do you manage to learn it and where did you start? What methods did you most often use in your study?
