Not only should you take along your travel cup holder to a french destination, here’s some ideas to help converse with the locals:
Are you planning to travel? Perhaps you should consider learning a bit of French before you go! French is a widely spoken language. There are about 200 million francophones, and a lot of people who speak it as a second language. If you decide to learn French, you will definitely find it useful, no matter whether you want to learn French for business or for pleasure. However, French language learning is not that simple, and you might want to consider taking some French lessons to get started. There are various areas to cover, like grammar and vocabulary, writing and reading, listening and speaking and perhaps even culture. If you try to learn the language all by yourself, it can get hard to figure out what to study and in which order. You have many different options. You can attend an old-fashioned French course or study French at home with a language learning software.
Starting your French studies with a software or an online course is a good choice. Most of the softwares offer numerous audio lessons which you can take anywhere where you can listen to your mp3 player. When do you have spare time? Some common situations are while driving the car, while doing the housework or at the gym. Audio lessons are very useful when starting to learn a new foreign language. You will get to hear spoken French right from the beginning and even form sentences of your own!
There are also lessons for vocabulary and grammar. The studies have shown that the ultimate way of learning just anything is to use various modalities when trying to learn something new, and these softwares do just that. They introduce new information in different forms (for example you can listen to the text you are reading, therefore getting both visual and auditive information), which will maximize the results. The softwares also include exercises and tests, even games and music! French language learning softwares are an excellent choice if you want to learn how to speak French. (Don’t forget to pack your drink holder or any necessary wheelchair accessories you may need.) Bon Voyage!
