Struggling? You're growing?
This video is worth watching....
I'm not saying that you should enjoy struggling, but there is a bigger picture to remember. To help you not struggle as much, I recommend those starting out with French, use this 500 audio/visual Anki Deck.
Remember, you have to have Anki open before you double-click your download, so that Anki can import the cards. What's great about this deck is that the creator used a female voice for feminine words, and male voice for masculine. Clever.
