Last night my normally fluent French got stuck. My son’s karate partner’s dad likes to speak Fr with me- he’s Quebecois. We started out in French, and then I froze up. I think it was b/c I started to say this was my last year working and I couldn’t decide whether to use an or anne. It’s a good example of how the monitor can interfere with communication. He would have understood regardless and if he had not been an English-speaker, I would have just gone on in French.
