I won't be posting often anymore, due to major shortening of my computer time. I can only be on 2 hours each weekday from now on, longer on weekends.
Now, how do I translate THAT into French?

it was almost perfect!!!

Without beeing picky the true way of saying it would have been

Je connais un peu de mots en Français.
<I know few words in french>

Et je vais poster ici en français le plus possible.
<And I will post in french, as much as possible, in here.

Leçon 4 pour le 17 novembre.

I have to think of new more complex lessons but for now here is what I thought of in the time I was thinking.

Les présentations
To present your friends informally you would use this expression:
je te présente

Example:
Name 1 (if there is a girl and a guy the girl's name always goes first), je te présente mon copain Name 2 (guy's name would go here).
Name 1 would then say Enchanté(e).
Name 2 would then say Enchanté(e).

Enchanté(e) - Glad to meet you.

To present your friends or family formally you would use this expression:
je voudrais vous présenter

Example:
Name 1 (same thing as example before), je voudrais vous présenter mon copain Name 2 (same thing as example before).
Name 1 would say Enchanté(e).
Name 2 would say Enchanté(e).

Au téléphone
I am going to telephone my friend named Christophé.
(Je vais téléphoner à Christophé.)

Robert = Me | Christophé = Chris (my friend)

Christophé: Allô!
Robert: Allô! Bonjour, Christophé. Ici Robert.
Christophé: Bonjour, Robert!

See how I used "Allô" instead of Bonjour or Salut? You use "Allô" for phone conversations.

The perfect form would have been:
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir.

Well you don't always have to say yes, an affirmation could do so.. here's few example to say "Yes" in French.

Oui
Absolument (absolutly)
Yes
Bien sure (of course)
S'il vous plait (please)

Ok. I thought so. I was looking around but, I never use "Holland" in any sentence ever... I mean I have never said the word Holland when I am speaking french. I just thought of something I think it would be "Hollande" but I haven't been updated on the latest french terms. Snowy_Beast can you confirm this for me.

Leçon 5 pour le 18 novembre.

Some lessons will have a Converstion between two or more people before the actual lesson begins. This is so you can see how some french people talk.

Dans le premier épisode, nous allons recontrer Armelle et Corinne. Elles sont deux copines. Elles ont quinze ans. Elles vont au lycée Berthollet à Annecy.

(Cet aprés-midi, Corinne est à la bibli municipale. Sa copine Armelle arrive.)
Armelle: Salut, Corinne!
Corinne: TIens, salut, Armelle. Ça va?
Armelle: Oui, ça va.
Armelle: Qu'est-ce que tu fais?
Corinne: Eh bien, tu vois, je suis en train de préparer mon cours d'histoire ... Et toi?
Armelle: J'ai un rendez-vous.
Corinne: Avec qui?
Armelle: Eh bien, avec mon nouveau copain.
Corinne: Tiens, tu as un nouveau copain? Dis moi, comment est-il ton copain? Je parie qu'il est blond et grand!
Armelle: Eh bien, non. Il n'est pas blond. Il est brun et il n'est pas trés grand.
Corinne: Est-ce qu'il est mignon?
Armelle: Qui, assez.
Corinne: Sympa?
Armelle: Oui, trés sympa.
Corinne: Qui c'est?
Armelle: Je te l'ai dit: C'est un garçon brun, pas trés grand, assez mignon et trés sympa.
Corinne: Je sais.. Je sais.. Mais, comment est-ce qu'il s'appelle?
Armelle: Non, mais dis donc, Corinne, tu es vraiment curieuse aujourd'hui.
Corinne: Écoute, ne sois pas si mystérieuse!
Armelle: Excuse-moi, mais je dois partir.. Je ne veux pas être en retard à mon rendez vous. Salut!
Corinne: Salut!

After writing this.. i forgot what the lesson was let me think.

You don't know the basic phrases like "I am, You are, He/She is, We are, You (all of you) are, They are" ?

Well, let me teach you some then:

Je suis = I am.

Tu es = You are.

Il/Elle/On es = He/She/One is.

Nous sommes = We are.

Vous etes = Y'all are.

Ils/Elles sont = They are.

Also, for end letters, only 4 consonats are pronounced (usually) when they are at the very end of a word in French.
C
R
F
L
I remember them by remembering to be CaReFuL when speaking in French.

The numbers from 1-10.

un=1 (pronounced like "ah")
deux=2 (pronounced "deuh")
trois=3 (pronounced "twoi")
quatre=4 (pronounced "catre")
cinq=5 (pronounced "sank")
six=6 (pronounced "cease")
sept=7 (pronounced "set")
huit=8 (pronounced "wheat")
neuf=9 (pronounced "neuf")
dix=10 (pronounced "diise)
