Worried about my level of French!

After being here for two months, we have managed quite well with the language issues, but I am now feeling like my French is not good enough. Everyone tells me I am fine, but I am getting frustrated because I want to chat and make small talk and cannot do so.

Feeling a bit out of my depth when we get phone calls and panic a bit. Perhaps I just am trying to run before I walk, but I just want to be fluent. Find it hard trying to explain homework to my 8 yr old and even messed up writing a cheque in front of the head mistress at the school this afternoon. Feeling a bit stupid!

Is this normal to be feeling this way?

  1. I think you will find that you are forgiven an awful lot so long as you are seen to make an effort.

    Really hope everything is going well for you all.
