Do you speak French?  
Okay so it has been years since I took French and I can barely remember anything I learned so I ask anyone who speaks French what would you say at the end of a countrdown?

I'm doing a countdown which is in French for the new season of Outlander but while I know my numbers I'm trying to figure out what you would say for the day of the event. I was thinking NOW or TODAY. I'm opened to suggestions here but either way I need to know how to say it.

Thanks for any and all help.

Today would be aujourd'hui.

Now would be maintenant.

C'est ici = it is here

I never knew you took french. Didn't even realize it was an option down in the USA - I thought you all learned Spanish as your second language. We have to take French here as it's our official second language. Some high schools have Spanish as an option but not very many.

Oh that is a good one.

Probably depends on the school. I went to a big high school in LA area so there were more options. I think they had Spanish, French and German. I took French my freshman year and then Spanish my Sophmore and Junior year and then two years in college. And I can't speak it 😄 I can read a lot it though.

Spanish is more practical on California because it is really the second language of our state but still I'm not good at it.

My high school had french, german and latin, all of which I took. I took french for 8 years but I still can't speak it so don't feel bad! I can read it pretty well and understand if people speak slowly, but if you don't actually LIVE it and need to use it to communicate, you lose it.

Exactly. Had I stayed in Southern California I might have used my Spanish but there isn't much call for it in Northern California.
