Learn French for Beginners

Learn French for beginners

Do you want to learn French fast? Check out these phrases all themed around language for travel- the perfect context to start learning a language.

When you learn a new language for travel, you learn all the vocabulary and grammar you need in context. Learn enough words and phrases, and they will start overlapping. You can then start creating your own sentences. This is how you transition from a beginner of French to intermediate.

Pick a new theme each week, for five weeks. Try using vocabulary columns and mastering the theme for the week. After studying the list, take a piece of paper and write the words and phrases on a column in Italian. Try to recall the English, writing the equivalents. Do again, giving the Italian.

I also love the Goldlist method. Copy the words and phrases as you see them in a notebook. Look them over, and see which ones you can easily recall. Make a new page with the Italian phrases you still need to learn and their equivalents. Keep going with this and watch your skills grow.
