Meet the Author in Montclair: William Alexander, Flirting with French

Flirting with French: How a Language Charmed Me, Seduced Me, and Nearly Broke My Heart

William Alexander, best-selling author of Flirting with French: How a Language Charmed Me, Seduced Me, and Nearly Broke My Heart, will visit FIAF Montclair on November 7 to take a playful look at learning a language.

The author of three critically-acclaimed books, a frequent NPR guest, and occasional NY Times op-ed contributor, in Flirting With French, Alexander shares his latest challenge of fulfilling a life-long dream — learning French as an adult.

From Rosetta Stone software, to French pen pals, to local meet-ups, to getting an MRI of my brain on French, I leave no stone unturned in my quest. Do I succeed in becoming fluent? Readers will be as surprised as I was to discover that, in a bizarre twist, studying French may have had a far greater impact on my life than actually learning to speak it ever would.
