Best French Language Courses
Here are some French courses and dictionaries that I have chosen for you
If you don't want to sign up for French classes with pressure to do your homework and fixed lesson times, the most convenient way for you to study the French language is to buy a language course and follow it at your own speed, in the comfort of your own home, at whatever time fits in with your own time schedule.
Here is a selection of language courses and language software to help you to learn French. Two of the language courses are in depth, and the other one will just help you to learn the French basics, but, with the help of a French dictionary, this would probably be sufficient for you to get by on holiday, talking to the local people, finding your way around, and buying food and necessities.
If you seriously want to learn French, you do need to devote a regular amount of time to it, and I would recommend at least an hour a day, or several hours a week, in order to give you time to build up your knowledge and linguistic skill. There are language courses which help you to learn the language fast, and even some which say you can learn it in ten days.
My own feeling is that, if you were to completely immerse yourself in the French language for a short but concentrated period, you would learn enough to get by at a superficial level, but really it takes longer than a few days to learn the language thoroughly.
