    I've written a card for my old French teacher from high school, in French of course. I would like for someone to read what I've written before I send it off to her so she can be proud of it.

    I'm always reluctant to say fluent, but others tell me I am.

    Send me a PM if you like.

    Just a thought, but if you want her to be proud of the level you've achieved, isn't having somebody else make it perfect slightly out of alignment with that? As a language teacher myself, my guess is that she would be proud of you and what you've written yourself even if it's not 100% perfect.

    PS I like your cock. :)

    Je pense que Buzzrider a raison. Votre français est, en partie, le travail de votre professeur. Elle mérite de votre mielleure écriture. :)

    To truly make her proud you must translate an entire story...perhaps from your files here. http://www.lpsg.org/263439-the-men-of-gilligans-island.html
    :smile:
    um maybe not that.......it might be a little too much. I do remember entire story translation tasks though from my old Spanish class.

    I like the idea you have of having it written in French as that shows her she taught you well and that you respect her still.

    I'm French, but I guess you have already found someone to help you.
    Don't hesitate to PM me if needed though

    Actually, if you have written the card, and only ask for proofreading, it's ok I think.

    Haha. We did story translations with her, too. Les Hommes de l'ile de Gilligan isn't that far of a cry from Le Petit Prince, right?
