Coucou les French learners,
Discipline is often the secret ingredient behind achieving your French language goals. It’s what helps you stay focused even when you’re not as excited as you were at the beginning or when the newness of learning wears off.
You may know René Lacoste. He is the man behind the famous polo shirt with a crocodile logo.
Before the crocodile, Lacoste was a legendary French tennis player. And he was also a symbol of discipline. During one particularly grueling match at the 1927 U.S. Open, where the temperatures soared to over 100°F (38°C), Lacoste battled dehydration and exhaustion.
Lacoste’s dedication to rigorous training and his ability to maintain discipline, even during challenging circumstances, helped him secure multiple tennis titles.
Acquiring French requires daily dedication, whether it’s reading a page of French text or listening to a short podcast. In this journey, discipline is your running partner, helping you stay the course and cross your linguistic finish line with confidence. #trusttheprocess
