I don't have the best understanding of French, but I like to test myself and try to read articles to see if I get the gist of it. By the time I'm done struggling through an article, someone has usually posted a translation, so I can see if I how right or wrong I was in understanding it. It's actually pretty entertaining sometimes.

I know this is an English language forum, but I find it sort of funny when people get up in arms about there not being a translation in the OP (by the way, I'm not really talking about this thread, I've just been inspired to muse about what I've seen in the past). I guess it's just a symptom of our instant information society. The vast majority of French articles that are posted on here get translated quickly. I've found that a little patience and a quick "thank you" to the translator that steps up makes things go a lot smoother.
