I have been living abroad (Ireland, Australia and back to Ireland) for the past thirteen years and my main language at this stage is English. I obviously have not forgotten my native language, French, but I find myself struggling a bit with some vocabulary and formulating sentences (believe me, it gets giggles from my family when I go visit them). I guess this is what happens when even your thought process is in English.
Since I want to keep up with my native language, I make the effort to include it a bit more in my every day life (plus, my lovely Irish husband has been taking lessons to improve his French over the past year and insists on practicing it on a daily basis; this is helpful for both of us!). Here are a few ways to put a bit of French in your life.
