I also wanted to start learning french in high school but can't. My first language is english and second I had to choose between deutsch and russian
(in my school is french but not in my class!
). and because i learnt deutsch for 6 years and can nothing (and I don't like this language, sorry) so I've chosen russian. I think it's maybe useless but I've started to like this language and my teacher said that I had good russian accent
. But I'll learn french for sure, maybe when I'll be in university... So, Kiri_84 good luck in learning it!
