Things are finally getting back to normal around here after the trip to the States and a short run up to Normandy. And that means the struggle to learn enough of this language to preserve my honor continues in earnest. This week's lesson was all about the subjunctive.

Just so you know, in the sentence, "In France, it is important that I be speaking French", be speaking is the subjunctive - I think.
