How to learn colloquial phrases in Frencrapidly?
How to say what I really mean in French? I cannot just look up the word in a dictionary; I need to know as many ways as possible on how to use a French word.
One translation, one variant use, is just meager, I need more.
I am here studying French words in Kara, Togo West Africa, which is annoying, because there are many ways to use just one word. It truly takes a life time to know all the nuance of a language. No, it would take 10 lifetimes to understand a foreign language.
Here is an Example:I want to say, I am going for a stroll, or I am going to wander around the city of Kara, Togo.
I believe the word is “balade.”http://dictionary.reverso.net/french-english/balade
I am never quite sure, nobody here corrects my French, they let all mistakes fly on by.
Why do I want to know, the girls at the reception are driving me crazy. Hmm, that is a colloquial phrase in English.“They are not in a car driving me to be crazy are they?”
When I leave the Hotel, they ask,“Tus sort?”Or,“Tus sortir?”
I thought sortier meant, walking around for the longest time, but it means more about the idea I am leaving the Hotel, and why they want to know that I am leaving is a mystery to me. I am walking out the door, I am leaving, that is obvious!
I say, “Yes, I am leaving.”
But, what I wanted to say is,“I am going to wander around the city.”

http://dictionary.reverso.net/french-english/baladeI want them to be satisfied with my answer,“Je me balade?”
The truth is this, people in West Africa do not just go walk around, so what I am doing is a foreign culture to them...
Conjugation of verbs, another never-ending path to take.
Fun, and games in Togo, a Francophone country, in my opinion, the center of West Africa.
