Basic French Language

By: Dennis Cordy

When you're looking to get a good grip on the basic French language the last thing you want is to be bored. What you want is to get to learn a few things quickly. Initial success will encourage you and make you look forward to the next bit of French learning, and the next, and the next. Before you know it you've got a good grasp of the French language and the confidence to use it.

So what you're probably asking now is just how fast can you learn. Of course that depends on you, and the time you can give it, but basic French language can be acquired very quickly if you've got the right material. There are interactive courses that boast that they can provide you with a reasonable degree of fluency in as little as eight weeks, and I have to say they're quite right!

Modern PC based French learning systems are a long way from the dusty old text books of my youth! Systems provided on CD or by direct download give access to huge resources. A good basic French language course will also have the benefit of a native French speaker, not that dull old teacher we used to have who would probably have rather been doing something else!

You should be able to find entertaining games for learning French words or verbs, exactly the sort of thing that makes language learning fun and if it's fun, it's almost always fast too. It's pretty unlikely you're going to get bored when you're tested by something that reacts to you, prompts you and stretches you just a little and modern French learning can be just like that.

In addition to PC based French lessons you should also find that the best software allows you to download French audio to MP3 or CD so you've got lessons you can carry around with you wherever you go. With all these attributes is it any wonder you can get a grip on the basic French language so quickly?

Of course you might expect there's a price to pay for this sort of excellent in-depth teaching. In truth there are packages to suit every pocket from just a few dollars for the very basic to the eight week course offering a money-back guarantee for under $100. That's a truly remarkable price considering the content available.

I know some people might be put off by the thought of learning basic French language via a computer. Well don't be. If you're reading this article you've got all the skills necessary. I'm "pushing fifty" (as my dear wife reminds me) and in no way a computer expert, so if I can manage, so can you!
