How do you learn a foreign language?
I've been studying French for a few years now and I've finally worked out a system that works very well: Drink coffee while studying grammar and drink wine while practicing conversation.
By utilizing this method, I've learned how to conjugate verbs AND carry on a conversation! Just not at the same time.
You see, wine is not available at critical times. Or rather, it's frowned upon to show up at a parent teacher conference with a glass of wine. I'm going to have to figure out another way...
