You can teach an old dog a new trick or, in this case, a new language.
Drum roll please.
Now, let me introduce my new favorite I-phone App; Coffee Break French from the Radio Lingua Network.
Thanks to Teacher Mark and Student Anna, I’m learning French again.
Every morning I drag my Golden into his golden years by chiming in with French lessons taught by my new Scottish friends. Ironically, the lessons are timed perfectly to end as soon as Rocco does.
I don’t mind struggling to repeat words and phrases but I draw the line when Mark and Anna sing numbers and holiday verses.
It’s been 8 weeks and, as expected, my progress is slow. I average two 15 minute lessons a day then I repeat them for the next two.
Still, the downloads are free and, unlike my Freshman high school teacher, my dog doesn’t bark when I make a mistake.
