Hi All
My name is Andy and I've been working  in Kambove DRC for the last 7 months as camp manager. Every day I learn more. I really battle with French but it's been a real experience so far. Hey if anyone knows of a simple way to lean the language please let me know it will be a big help.

All you have to do, is to read dictionnary book for comparing what you know in your first language with their meanings in french and srart speak it with all your mistakes!! Ask where you think is hard to you, make friends french speakers so that they help you
