30-day language challenge 

Day 1! 

Jini’s 3 French vocabs of the day: 

   
   
Démodé. Of course the French would have a single word for this! 

Cure could also be quite useful, as I wanna attempt a “low carb cure”

And cantonner.  Ouais. Je vois. C’est pas difficile. 
If you’re learning Korean, a word I can think of for you would be 목 and 쉬었다. Each meaning “throat (or neck)” and “to become hoarse”, cuz that describes my current state ! 

Now,

Presenting how to say “hoarse throat” with my actually hoarse throat. May be irritable. Excuse the ridiculousness. (This is what happens if you chit chat gossip and banter for god knows how long while not having fully recovered from a cold)
