Grinding French

I really enjoyed speaking French with the partner and customer in Tunis last week. Although I'm always frustrated by how much worse my French is compared to when I left university, I do feel that my fluency has improved over recent months, thanks to regular trips to North Africa.


I've also exchanged a few emails in French with the customer - nothing very complicated, but a good chance to force me to polish off my written skills as well.


My French speaking colleagues are always very polite to me, but I can't help feel that I'm murdering their mother tongue somewhat with my grinding sentences. Still, I seem to be getting my message across, which is what it's all about, n'est-ce pas?
