Bonjour Paris !

Is your French as rusty as an old can? Did you live in France years ago or study it in high school—and promptly forget everything upon leaving? The fact is that language ability fades with lack of practice. If you used to know French but haven't spoken it in years or decades, the bad news is that it probably won't come rushing back all at once.
