    I like this expresison. I didn’t know that Peut-être could be translated as a “maybe”. It makes some sense, but I just hadn’t… known.

    It’s interesting to hear some of the words in this snippet pronounced. Many are English, and then others, like search engine are in French. I struggle with words that are in English or look like the English. When I pronounce them, I want to say them in English. That drives the French up a wall.

    Maybe you know how to get your brain to speak in French and only French. Then you wouldn’t run into the same problem I have. How are you getting on with that?
