French lessons and pole dancing

(viewed 1793 times)
Bookmark and Share
After school days failure in French lessons I decided to enrol in a night class in the language. While waiting in the queue the women next to me, were enrolling in a Pole Dancing class. I realise now that I should have read the prospectus more carefully. Sure I may need French from time-to-time but pole dancing skills could have really enhanced my CV.

No, you were right, French - you can use it in every circumstance, including whilst pole dancing, whilst the reverse is clearly not true. (You try enjoying la carte gastronomique whilst orbiting a lamp post, legs akimbo... doesn't bear thinking about.)
Have a notion you're in the Great Wen, in which case, you could do worse than have a look at the l'Institut Francais site; www.institut-francais.org.uk
You're already enrolled in a class but they do lots of francophone social & cultural events, & have a decent members' lending library.

Thanks for the link Hildegard. When I move beyond restaurant French this could be right for me. My main interest in learning French was just for the sheer pleasure of learning something new and the fun of doing something different. I seem to find myself in a French speaking country a couple of times a year and thought it would be fun to be able to say more that 'I'm sorry I don't understand'.

Taniwha, pas bonjour bonsoir :-) Trying to remember what pole dancing is in french, shame on me...Ou zut alors. Agreeing with Hildegard about the french institute. Great stuff. And if you want my notes on psychology in french , you are more than welcome

Minkey - psychology notes in French! Maybe in a few years. I'm struggling with French sociology translated into English at the moment.

Billion - ah, Polish dancing with spoken French in an English institution danced by a New Zealand immigrant with a Polish Dad ... I think I need to lie down.

Thanks D.
