    What’s it about?

    I will be honest, making questions in French is not my strong suit. Well, at this point my strong suits are limited. Maybe grammar… but I digress.

    Forming, asking, and hearing/answering questions are all problematic for me. I lack the confidence around the rules for making them. Even though there are so many ways to make them. It is grammar, I suppose. But it’s definitely a tough point.

    That’s not really important for you to know, it is the reason that this question stands out in this snippet. It’s fun to say, and it rolls off the tongue. Again, something you might overhear in a conversation in a bar. I love that.
