PS: How I came to be a (faux) native French speaker: I SPENT MY FIRST 10 YEARS OF SCHOOLING AT THE LYCEE INTERNATIONAL FRANCO-AMERICAIN IN SF (OU J'AI APPRIS LE FRANÇAIS). SINCE THAT WASN'T NEARLY ENOUGH FRENCH FOR ONE LIFETIME, I THEN STUDIED AT PARIS VII DURING COLLEGE. SINCE THAT ALSO WASN'T ENOUGH, I FLATOUT MOVED TO PARIS IN 2013. AND I'VE BEEN A UNHAPPY PUESDO-PARISIAN EVERY SINCE.
