22 Trendy Australian Slang Words
This article will be a tough one. Not because French is hard to learn (it is), but because it is difficult to give French-specific tips for language acquisition. I should perhaps try and find some cultural directions, as French comes in with a spectacularly rich world of literature, food, movies… Let us see how this goes.
1. Date a French girl/guy! Yep, the cavalry is here. I have the feeling that everyone knows about this one, but for some reason, no one is talking about it. So many people learn a language just so that they can find love with a foreign girl/guy. And there is nothing wrong with that! They don’t call French the “language of love” for no reason. There are gorgeous French girls/guys out there, and if you fall in love – he/she will come with a whole language for you.
2. Join Skyrock.com. There isn’t just Facebook in France. Skyrock is a French blog/social media website, which will allow you to keep up with the trends in the French language and learn many new things.
3. (for advanced learners) Dive into French literature! It is regarded as one of if not THE richest literature in the world. Everyone knows about Jean-Paul Sartre, Victor Hugo, Baudelaire, Voltaire and so many, many more. If you have already mastered a high level of French, do not hesitate to enrich your mind with the magnificent works of these authors.
4. My personal favorite: find a native speaker and have a few drinks with them! (be careful though, it can turn too much fun). The drinks will brighten your mood, remove your shyness and those French sounds you were struggling with will seem like the easiest thing on Earth. After all, conversation is the best way to learn.
I hope these 4 tips truly help you on your exciting journey. Keep in mind that you can use them for any language out there!
