As promised, the 4 secrets to speaking French successfully at lower levels in 6 weeks are:
Secret #1: Focus on vocabulary rather than grammar!
Every French class I have ever been to concentrated on conjugations of different tenses. And after 2 years of learning French full-time without real results, I can tell you it’s the wrong approach. Learn lots of words and you’ll be fine even if you use the infinitive at all times.
Secret #2: Correct pronunciation is going to be key to your success!
The most important way you help the other person understand you is to pronounce words correctly. Native speakers can only make an effort with you if you sound like someone who speaks their language. Otherwise you’ll confuse them big time.
Secret #3: Predict conversations by learning conversation templates by heart.
People don’t just say anything, they are unconsciously following typical examples of that type of communication. Learn conversation templates and you will be powerful beyond your language level.
Secret #4: Listen, listen, listen to what native speakers do.
Every language pre-interprets our world. Some languages are optimistic (like English), others are fussy (like French). But the more you listen to anything you possibly can in that language, the more you learn typical ways of answering things.
I will discuss these more in detail in the webinar. Do join. If you didn’t get the webinar link within 15 minutes, then do email email@example.com and notify us about the same. Thanks. See you soon.
I have been following Anna’s classes for two and a half years with success. I needed to improve my speaking skills, which I have managed to do.
I really appreciate her classes thanks to Anna’s dynamism and her application of language to everyday subjects (which I missed). There is a very good atmosphere in her class and this is a very important point for me.”
