Where Should You Begin When Learning Basic French?

When learning basic French, it is good to start with greetings and descriptions. Then learn practical French phrases, which will be useful in travel. Then move on to particular areas of interest. For children, school vocabulary is very useful. Learn the French alphabet along the way and the colors in French, and French numbers. And then add French verb conjugation and French irregular verbs, and more French vocabulary to your basic French. As you progress, add new French words but continue to review so that you do not forget what you have learned. Review and add on and then… review and add on. Before long, you will learn to speak French.

It is memorable to have a theme.

In order to learn to speak French, it is memorable to have a theme and converse about it. Dramatic play works well with children – recreating real life situations. Classroom French for Kids provides many opportunities for conversation and dramatic play.

It is not so hard to learn how to speak French; it just takes time and persistence. Whenever possible, try to travel.
