Part of An Email

May,
[Mon prof] vous recommande chaudement!  Il me dit que vous êtes une étudiante exceptionnelle.

Chaudement literally translates as hotly. Of course English has to make it weird. Ironically, reading this made me feel worlds of cool.

And, naturally, when I replied to the email, I deflected the compliments. Oh, the professor is too nice; he’s a very good teacher.

I’m taking a French grammar class this semester from the writer of that email up there. J’ai peur. Je vais mourir.

A little discussion.
