I'm from Winnipeg and I'm raising my dd and her soon to be little sister in French. Just wondering who else here is French?

I took a lot of french up until grade 13 but most of it has faded from my memory.. je ne sais pas pourquoi! My bf and I decided to learn some Spanish too that way we can teach her multiple languages... but of course we got the cd's to learn and have listened to them maybe 2 or 3 times...

I was raised speaking french but must admit I don't speak it very often anymore... Had good intentions to raise my kids in french... hasn't happened so far and I feel terrible guilt about it.

Not French here either, but just had to say hi and that I live about an hour southwest of Winnipeg! Are you going to send your girls to French Immersion? I grew up near Elie which is a more French area and I have friends who went through the French Immersion program. I took French classes until about Grade 8 and I really remember very little! The area I live now is very Mennonite, Low German-speaking, which is actually my cultural background. And I don't speak Low German either.

I'll be sending them to an all French school. Luckily we have a few of those in the city and one is walking distance from our house! lol

I'm bilingual, but learned all my French in French Immersion school. I forgot a lot of it, but re-learned much of it when I started teaching French as a second language to gr.6-8. I don't speack French at home (DH wouldn't understand me! ) but fully intend on putting my kids in French Immersion.
