Hi Gary, so sorry to hear about your girlfriend. Keeping up the studies is the hardest past of learning here, it is also the thing i struggle with the most.
Perhaps you need to find a new incentive for your studies, a trip to france or something like that to give you something to work towards. For me, i have found someone in my town to do a language exchange with, so we meet each week and i help her with english and she helps me with french. I find this motivates me to do more studies online because i don't want to let her down by not making progress!
i hope you find your way back to studying, it often feels like a slow and hard journey but i'm sure it will be worth it!
Où habitez vouz? Peut-être il y a une échange linguistique dans votre ville aussi.
