If you follow these simple steps, you'll find that your French ability improves quickly!

As anyone who has ever successfully learnt the language can tell you, the moment you realise you are having a conversation in French - when you are expressing yourself and can understand what people are saying to you - it’s an amazing feeling.

Don’t worry about making mistakes, just open your mouth and start speaking. Accept that you will get things wrong and that it doesn’t matter. The most important thing is just to start.

With your new language, you will be able to:

  • Make new friends
  • Have better travel experiences in French-speaking countries
  • Earn people’s respect for learning their language
  • Impress your monolingual English-speaking friends
  • Gain a deeper understanding of French film, literature, art and cuisine
  • Take advantage of new career opportunities

You will learn about modern France and gain a better understanding of French culture and the French way of life. And if you plan to use French for business you'll also gain a greater understanding for and respect from your French-speaking business partners.

One final word of advice: when learning any language daily practice is key. Practising for a short amount of time every day is much better than practising for 3 or 4 hours once a week.

Make French a part of your daily life and you will be amazed at how quickly you progress.
