How To Learn French Efficiently

Bonjour, fellow French learners!

If you are very serious about learning French, I have some tips for you. Hope they help! :-)

  1. Write down everything. Rewrite your mistakes, correct what you've written. I write down everything I learn on Duolingo and make it look aesthetically pleasing with markers! It keeps me motivated.

  2. Re-do Duolingo lessons. Do them 5 times if you need to and ALWAYS remember to keep those lessons gold!

  3. Watch French YouTubers and French videos in general. This could be movies, documentaries or just short clips in French. There are a TON of those on YouTube. (Don't forget to turn the subtitles on!)

  4. Use other French learning resources, type in "French" on the app store on your phone and download some French apps! Write down everything you learn on there too :-) I suggest Memrise.

  5. Listen to French audio books or French music. You can download audio books on the app store or find them on google, and listen to French music on YouTube.

  6. If you can, talk to native speakers. It'll help familiarize you with the language. Don't be shy to ask questions to them!

  7. Study French for at LEAST 30 minutes every day. If you can't do 30 minutes, don't worry- just do your best.

These are some of the ways I learn French, they also keep me motivated to continue learning. Learning French is fun if you do it right. If you have any other tips, feel free to comment!!

Hope this helps :-)

xoxo

Also- READ A LOT OF FRENCH. If you don't understand what you're reading, use a dictionary. This will help familiarize you with the French language and improve your vocabulary.

Bonjour Langbron. Merci pour tes judicieux conseils. Je les applique également pour les langues que j'apprends ici et te confirme leur utilité. Je voulais juste mettre en garde sur le fait qu'actuellement beaucoup de Français natifs écrivent très mal leur langue, avec des erreurs de vocabulaire et de grammaire ainsi que des abréviations type "sms". Cela pourrait donc te perturber dans l'apprentissage, surtout en lisant les différents commentaires (de jeunes principalement). Je t'écris volontairement en français, cela te fera déjà une leçon de traduction niveau 25 ;-). Bonne continuation et bon courage pour la suite !

All of the suggestions here are great. I would add: Learn the verbs. I got audio tapes early on through French Today and I learned a few basic irregular conjugations while driving. A French native speaks so you get a listening exercise and a verb exercise. Second, get Bescherelle's Complete Guide to Conjugations; it is handier than the Internet in my view.
