I remember those French class days in UP Diliman. Everyday was a drag for me. I lost all desire to excel in my class just because I had no reason whatsoever to learn the language. On top of that, I had my family at the back of my mind. That when I had to buy some French textbooks to keep up with the class's progress, I decided to save the money so as not to add to financial burden.
But things are so much better now. I am equipped with all the tools that I need- the books, Internet, French speaking colleagues, and time. Now I don't have to juggle with other subjects. I only have French to deal with.
I have no reason to fail this time.
And I will not fail.
I will speak French.
