I am working hard on my summer reading list and I one of the books that I recently finished is How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits. The book is very fun and it deserves a separate review, and now I simply want to share with you my Paris-inspired outfit. According to the authors of How to Be Parisian, stripes and messy hair are all indicators of Paris-style, while red lipstick is a classic French chic.
My obsession with French culture goes much deeper than simply street style fashion. I am deeply in love with French literature, art, food, and overall aesthetics. In fact, I always had a dream to learn French and read one of my favorite books, War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy in original. I already know Russian (it’s my native language), but there are many parts in the epic novel written in French. I also dream about visiting Paris one day… but only under the condition that speak French.
Well, I finally start learning French this semester! I am very excited about it and can’t wait to start mastering verb conjugation and practice pronouncing voiced uvular fricative. I am a bit nervous though because it’s a very big deal to learn a new language (it took so long with English!). Also, I am afraid that I might confuse French with English…and speak not even RuGlish (Russian mixed with English), but FRuGlish (French, Russian, and English). Do you think it’s possible? I will really appreciate any advice on how to learn a new language without forgetting the one you already know.
