Learn French

Hello everyone! My name is Manjunath and I am trying to learn French. I am new learner and kindly help me in learning this language.

I would recommend listen to things in french so you can get familiar with the language(even if you don't understand it all) personally I have found this very helpful while learning french.


Hi Majunath, welcome to Duolingo!

Remember to practice a little bit every day; it is better to learn a language consistently, bit by bit, than to try to cram a lot of learning into isolated chunks.

When you have a question, ask here in the forums and be very specific. Questions like "Why did they use l' in this sentence?" will get lots of helpful answers. Posts like "French is hard!" or "I don't understand" will get down voted and ignored.

Repeat the lessons a LOT. Repetition is the key to learning.

Read the "Tips and Notes" provided in the first lessons. Read them slowly, think about them, and review them from time to time. The later lessons don't have tips and notes so take advantage of them when they are offered.

Here are a couple of links to help you learn your way around Duolingo:
