Je regrette que je ne peut pas prononcer "je regrette"...

We had a phrase in phonetics today that was so difficult for me to conquer involving “je regrette”. I don’t know what it is about french words that begin with ‘r’, but they always get me. Rire is another pesky little word. 

Before our phonetics class, I was talking to another student about how difficult it’s been for me to meet french students here… as in I haven’t met any yet and it’s driving me crazy. I want so badly to meet more french people, but it seems the only method so far has been to go out at night. 1. I’m not the kind of person to hang out in bars/clubs, it’s just not my scene, 2. I’m cheap and don’t want to spend money on a drink or a cab home (10 euros for a 5 minute drive!). So what’s a gal to do? I’m still trying to figure that out. Wish me luck!
