How to learn French the fastest way?

January 8, 2009 by admin 

Im planning to go to Switzerland and study there; however, I have to know french to study there, I cant wait to go, and I just want to learn French the fastest i could… another problem, I cant afford to pay a french course or something like that, is there like a website that could help me?

Well, if you have ever studied another Latin-based language, it won’t be so bad. Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, etc.

If you don’t, I strongly suggest you buy some discs of some sort to listen to. At Costco, I picked up GlobalAccess: Italian discs, (very nice), for $40. It’s kind of random the supply though so look for it! Maybe you will get lucky. It also comes with .pdf files so that you can actually read the words online.

If you don’t mind studying by book…
The books I love:
Barron’s Books!
Get the Barron’s French verbs, Barron’s French grammar, and Barron’s French Vocabulary…
It’s awesome! And each little book only costs $7!
I strongly recommend getting the vocab book over a dictionary.
A dictionary is no fun to read…Unless you are very advanced and just want to research one word. The little Barron’s books are nice bc you can read them on the go. They fit in your pocket :D
Also, you can learn section by section – for example, learn all the different names of animals one day and plants the next :)
I’m sure you can find these books at Borders or any other book store…but in case you need it, the site for the books is
www.BarronsEduc.com

After learning Italian almost perfectly (after having known French), I’d say I’m very pleased with Barron’s books!
Good luck! (Bonne chance!)

    Rosetta Stone software is great! And try using Skype to instant message people in France – you could work on your conversation that was (though it may be too colloquial to be worth anything if you're not very experienced with French).
