Welcome to Mothering!
I became a mother in France (two months ago) and live here in Lyon. I'm sure you'll love this website and have fun practicing your English.

Bonjour!

I love the French language but I only know a little bit of it.

Bonjour de Canada! Je suis anglophone mais bilingue... le francais ici est juste un petit peu différent que le votre heh... J'avais un professeur une fois donc j'ai bien pensé qu'elle était anglophone et avait un accent terrible... mais en réalité, elle était Parisienne... whoops...

Ich spreche ein wenig deutsch auch... nur ein wenig... aber ich verstehe besser als ich schreibe...

And since China's been mentioned, the only Mandarin I know is 'hello' 'goodbye' 'thank you' and the basic numbers lol... Same for Korean...

So welcome! Hope you sit down and make yourself right at home.

My Chinese (Mandarin) is only a little bit more advanced than yours, haha! (I can tell the driver when and where to pick me up and I'm able to order in a restaurant - sometimes.) My oldest son can count in old-Korean (Tae Kwon Do), my "middle" son has a good friend from Singapore, my youngest son has a best buddy from Sweden, and my daughter's boyfriend is a Norwegian viking.
