    Bonjour! ça va?

    This is where my French pretty much stops at the moment. I am off to uni this September and would like to study French on the side!
    Has anyone here ever done the Open University French courses? Or can anyone recommend any other courses?

    Am I better off doing a distance learning course or a course at college?

    I would say at a college vs. distance learning. The danger with distance learning on a language - I would imagine - is that you might think you're saying something right (it sounds right to you) but a native French person doesn't understand what you mean. As such, you could end up reinforcing these errors in your head, making it hard to "unlearn" them. The trouble with college based courses I suppose is that if you're doing, for example, 2 hours a week, it isn't really enough. Depends on how urgent you want to learn the language, the other alternative would be a 6 week intensive college course during your summer vacation?

    are these correct?

    Je suis venu a ma maison
    Il est mort le dimanche
    Je suis arriver dans la matin.

    and how do you say yesterday? and the staircase? and at the trash can?

    are you a girl, if so the je should have an extra e, and arriver hasn't been put into the past tense, il est mort is right. hier yesterday, escalier staircase, poubelle bin

    Je veux bien faire partie de la société française.
    En fait, il y a un but dans cette société, ou bien on est juste la pour montrer à tout le monde que nous sommes bilingues?

    I think you might mean "marrant" = funny. Or "marron" = brown / or roast chestnuts.

    no it's to do with religion, i have just read the epilogue to un sac de billes jo joffo, he was asked a question about denying his religion, and he was therefore a marrane, i assume it's traitor? but i think that's wrong

    OK. It's a Spanish Jew or Portegeuse Jew converted by force to Catholicism who continues to practise Judaism clandestinely.
