I've been playing around with this character in something that is probably still too early to call a novel. I want my character to know French as a second language to English. I don't know why yet, but that's okay. I am making it up as I go and I really like how it's coming together. So, I'm not seeking ideas there, though, it's always fun to brainstorm and hear what others have to say. I just don't feel stuck right now. However, this is my question: Should I learn French? It only seems appropriate that is I'm going to put something like this in a novel, I know a little about it. I don't really want to do it, but I rather start now than have to cram halfway through the book or something. Or maybe it's not important. What would you do?
