From California to Lyon, France: living & studying abroad…and coming back!
«Un mauvais mot, une expression bizarre m’en a quelquefois plus appris que dix belles phrases.»
– Denis Diderot
“A bad word, a bizarre expression has sometimes taught me more than ten beautiful sentences.”
From the simple slip-up of saying “bonjour” when it’s evening to the more embarrassing mispronunciation of “queue” (“line”…which becomes quite a different word pronounced differently!), mistakes are inevitable and natural. And while they may be quite embarrassing, sometimes it’s the best way to learn!
After all, if I’m embarrassed enough after a mistake I’ll never, ever make it again! But with or without the embarrassment, it teaches you what you don’t quite have down yet.
