Updated on December 25, 2011

Some Fast and Easy Tips to Learn French

Learning is not easy without actual effort. Learning a language like French is not easy if you don't exert effort and a little time to learn it. But what if you don't have the money to hire a French tutor or to go to a French class? Thank goodness for the Internet. With online courses you don't need to spend thousands of dollars just to learn French.

There are a lot of reasons to learn French. It can be academic or it could be that you just want to impress some people.

Learning French can be an uphill battle for a lot of people. That is why you should have the best handy online resources available to you always. Do you want to learn French so you can speak it fluently? Or do you just want to read and write in French?

First, you need to get a complete online course. Complete means the course should be composed of textual components and audio visual components.

For the textual component of the course, you should have a English-French dictionary. Not only that, you should also have an idiom and French phrases book so you can learn about slang and other French phrases.

For the video component, you should realize that having a video tutorial is better than just texts.

The last thing is to have an audio book handy. With an audio book, you can turn your boring commute into a learning French trip. Aside from that an audio book can teach you proper pronunciation of French words.

So, whatever reason you may have for learning French, you can easily find online resources to help you. However, that said online resources should be complete.
