Learning in Québec

My photo
I'm someone who began learning French when I was 53. I took a BA in French at 60 but wasn't happy with my level of comprehension (though I read very well). So, having really become comfortable with Spanish only by living on the Mexican border, I'm spending more time in Québec and near the border of Quebec, in Vermont, to see if I can do that here with French. I want to encourage others to do the same.

Anthony Joseph (Tony) Weisman

Tony, my friend for life and my life partner for these twenty years, died suddenly in Seguin, Texas on September 28, 2009. Tony's support and encouragement allowed me to visit Québec, indeed to begin to learn French. I will post here more pictures of him, especially those taken in Quebec City this last summer, but there is one of him sitting on a bench on the Plains of Abraham in the Images for Weisman, Anthony, at www.MeM.com.

Pensez à moi.

  1. Sylvia,

    Tony was a very dear friend of mine from the time we worked together at Madeline Slay Architecture. I just learned that he had passed away and my heart broke. Tony was a kind, gentle, warm hearted person. He was a great teacher and conversationist. I am sorry that I didn't know sooner because I would have been at his funeral/memorial. My memories about Tony will never fade, and he is someone I will dearly miss for the rest of my life. My thoughts are with you and your family. If you need any additional memories of Tony, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at egroffman@gmail.com.

    Tony's dear friend, Erin in San Antonio
