comment A more compact way of saying “please” in French?
Basically, I'd say there's no direct equivalent to the English, though this answer is the closest. I will probably just resort to saying "Pleeeeeeeease" and loaning the word from English. ;-)

comment Why are there three groups of verbs in French?
"the hardest part about speaking French is just learning a huge vocabulary and getting used to the "sound" of it, which is the hardest part about every language." - I'd say the hardest part is trying to understand French people. :-) I've been learning French for 15 years and I still can barely understand a word they say. They speak so fast and their words are so blurred together, I don't think I ever will.
