Learning French when you are a latin language speaker

I think that learning French when you know a latin language can be better then using the English language. I'm a Portuguese native speaker. So, many of the grammar topics and female and male words work quite similar to these two languages as well as Italian and Spanish. I believe it could be much better if there was the option to learn French using one of those languages above.

Agree and I supose that it is in future plans to do it. I'm trying to learn French and I advance very slowly because I make silly mistakes like translate to Spanish or writing mixing French and English words in one sentence.
