I'm just loving French

I remember the first time I learnt the first word in French 'Bonjour', I thought it's going to be difficult but I had an insatiable desire to learn so I kept going. Now I try to read articles in french(Though it seems difficult, it is helping me in building vocabulary). Recently, I started listening to songs and ted talks in french and watching french movies. This helped me in improving my listening and speaking skills(Although I can't properly say words that contain 'R' ). Whenever I feel like giving up, I recall this quote 'If you're going through hell, Keep going'.

Hi! How are you? I am Brazilian and I am learning French too. I am loving it too! For us (Portuguese speakers) it's pretty easy to pronouce the French "R". A tip for you about it is tha the sound of "R" in French words is almost the same of the English "H" when it is the first letter of the words. For example, When you say the word "français" it is like saying "fhorse" (F+HORSE). The same sound.

C'est vrai, it does sound like the hor- in horse. I had never thought of it that way.

Have you recently started learning French? I can relate. 3 years ago when I started in my freshman year of high school, I wasn't really into French. It wasn't till I learnt more about French that I loved learning it. I watched YouTube videos in French, French YouTubers, read articles of French grammar or just entirely in French, I decided to study more harder things in French. The teacher assigned certain pages to read, but I decided to also study more than he requested. Honestly, I'm happy to know you are enjoying it, seeing how there isn't really anyone in my AP French class that into French as I am. Voici ma citation préférée : C'est en forgeant qu'on devient forgeron!

"R" is one of the difficulties when you study French. These other sounds are difficult too : en, an, in, ien,... It is a way to study these sounds. for th "R" : https://www.ila-france.fr/blog/apprendre-prononciation-r-francais

I too am learning French and really enjoy working on it every day. My pronunciation is horrible so I appreciate the tips that other DuoLingo learners offer. Seeing that you are reading articles in French gives me hope that I will be able to do so soon!

Very inspirational words. Similar quote "when the going gets tough, the tough gets going" Good luck. I also started French years before but not followed through. Now I find duolingo, I am encouraged to jump start this developing my French in a better way.

Petites corrections pour s'améliorer... tu continueRAS (futur) A APPRENDRE et que TU arriveRAS (futur) bientôt (place de l'adverbe, possible aussi de le mettre après "et que") à parler français.

J'espère que vos fautes étaient des fautes d'inattention. Pour des verbes du 3ème groupe il m'arrive de vérifier la bonne conjugaison surtout quand je corrige les écrits d'une amie américaine. j'ai toujours le "Bescherelle" conjugaison avec moi sauf en vacances.C'est une référence.

Bonjour, juste une petite question..à votre avis, dans ce cas-là, pourrait-on utiliser le subjonctif? comme :“j’espére, que tu apprennes ..et que tu arrives à parler..” est-ce correct o non?

September 7, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tayanadeux

Bonjour. Non, le subjonctif n'est pas possible. La bonne phrase est bien expliquée par Deodso. Et pour queenkyja, je pense qu'on peut s'améliorer même dans sa langue maternelle. Par exemple, en apprenant à conjuguer le verbe vivre au présent de l'indicatif : je vis, tu vis, il vit, nous vivons, vous vivez, il vivent. Ce que je ne manquerai pas de faire si vous trouvez une petite erreur dans mes propos. C'est la vie ! :)

I loved French when I was a child, the first word I know is "caca" - in a fun story for teen :)). Ah and I always said bonjour to my dog but I didn't know how to write it... For a long long time I did not touch French, so now it makes me love again :D
