In this article I am going to show you some ways to learn French quick, if you need to. Languages are generally regarded as being hard to learn, and with good reason. French is no exception, but if you are really determined to learn French quick, I believe you can do so, with the right mindset, and the right language tools at your disposal.
First, let's talk about mindset, because this will determine whether you finally do learn French quickly, or whether you lose your way and give up. You need to be motivated to the point where learning French becomes what motivational speaker Anthony Robbins calls your 'magnificent obsession'.
Make learning French your obsession for a few weeks and you'll have at your disposal, a powerhouse of determination you can call on when the going gets tough. And let me be open about this now – if you are going to learn French quick, the going will get tough. Get your mind right now, though, and you'll be well on your way even before you start learning.
Let's talk about actually learning French now. You are going to need a really good, solid basic French course, preferably one based upon dialogues and conversations. This course will also need to have accessible grammatical explanations that cover what you need to know, no more and no less. You will also need an audio component with the course, recorded by native speakers.
Courses you might consider that fulfill the criteria are Teach Yourself French, Linguaphone French (basic), Colloquial French, The French Experience (BBC), Rocket French (software) and Living Language Ultimate French (Basic-Intermediate). They range in price from about $ 30 to $ 300. If in doubt, go for Teach Yourself, because they have been specially designed for self-learners.
You need to use your language course for at least an hour a day, in focussed study. You should also transfer the phrases and words in each unit of the course to flash-cards, or to an easily portable notebook you can carry around and learn from whnever you get a free moment. You'd be surprised how much you can learn in a traffic queue, or while waiting in line at the bank.
Finally, you need to immerse in the French language as much as you can. If you want to see remarkanble progress in your ability to learn French quick, I recommend you also get yourself a copy of the Immersion Protocol available through the Ultralearn webiste and at worldlanguagelearning.com/immersion_protocol.html Immersion is a poorly understood concept by most, and one that is quoted so freely by language tour operators and course creators, but it is rarely done properly.
Use the information above and you will be well on your way to learning French quick!
