speaking french

Pat and I were talking to friends this weekend about them planning a trip to France. One of them is taking a French refresher course, which I think is a great idea! I think Pat and I felt like these guys when we were there. We knew all the basic words but really unless you're walking through a grocery store when do you use half of those?

I will say that Pat did a great job while we were there, but I just went blank when trying to think of the right words. However the word baguette, no worries, I could say that easily and could use a fresh one right now with some brie and ham too please.
