How to start speaking French15-09-2016
How to start speaking French as soon as possible:
1. Immerse yourself in the language environment
Of course, the best way to get started in French is go to France! Language schools, classes with a tutor or at universities in the language environment will get you speaking for sure!
2. Watch movies with subtitles
Better yet: every day and in French of course. Get “hooked” on any French TV series or simply rewatch the cinematic masterpieces that France has in abundance.
3. Find a pen pal
These days the concept of “pen pals” is pretty outdated. Modern technology means you can get online and find yourself a "Skype pal". Which is even better!
4. Learn French cuisine
While putting in the effort to prepare a true French dish, you'll also learn the language! Julienne, gratin, blanquette, cassoulet - all these words are important not so much for your vocabulary, but for honing your pronunciation skills and "getting used" to French slang.
5. Do it with us!
Quartier Latin publishes the most useful news and rules of the French language! However, don’t forget: no matter how good your teacher or tutor was back in your high school days or even how fantastic our content is, when you arrive in France or start speaking to a native French speaker, you’ll realize that you’ve forgotten absolutely everything! So, ultimately, there is nothing better than following the first point :)
