The all-in-one list of Tim Ferriss resources
I like what Tim Ferriss does. The ideas behind accelerated…
During my French language learning – “Je etudy le langue des Francais”, I get caught up in certain words that don’t sink in. That word today is Presque. Which means almost.
The first thing I did was crazy images. So presque – sounds like press queue for me. So I imagined someone pressing against a queue trying to get to the front. I also remembered queuing for an Arctic Monkeys gig and tried to install that image of pressing up the front of the queue to get a ticket.
Unfortunately that failed. Probably because whilst the imagery is vivid it doesn’t link in with the meaning of the word.. “almost”.
Next I tried thinking of sentences it could tie into. I almost met Prescott. I almost pressed the question.
That doesn’t seem to be working either. I can’t really relate it to other French words either. So I continue on trying to learn the word presque. Je presque finaliser mon blog post.
