Learning French easily: the difficulties and how to overcome them

Where to learn French? At l'Ecole des 3 Ponts

There are so many reasons to learn French. The first one is very simple: the beauty of the language, the way it sounds. The French simply need to say a few words to turn any simple and casual phrase into poetry to any foreign hear. French literature is also another excellent reason why anyone would like to learn the French language.

Being able to read Victor Hugo, Emile Zola or Marcel Proust in their original version would be a total thrill. Another art in which the French have excelled is cinema. So many fantastic French movies that would be even better without the need to read the subtitles in English.

Just one of those reasons would be good enough to push anyone into a French immersion school.

The French language, hard to learn, rewarding to speak

But how hard and difficult this language is. How frustrating it can be to make for the thousandth time the same mistake. Once again, hesitating between “le” or “la”, “un” or “une”, and never remembering what the “subjonctif” is used for.

That time when you saw that little French child speaking French so easily. You know it is his mother tongue, but still, how does he remember when a word is masculine or feminine ? Do the French possess an extra gene in there DNA that allows them to guess it naturally ?
