What is the hardest part about learning French?
Learning a foreign language is always challenging and French learners have to confront a fair few grammatical challenges. Often it's just a case of committing grammar points to memory - word gender and verb conjugations, for example - and this takes time and discipline. Your French tutor will provide you with the structure necessary to tackle these areas and make your learning sufficiently rigorous to slay any grammar issues you may come up against.
How long does it take to learn French?
It varies from student to student. People often approach language learning with unrealistic expectations of how long the journey to fluency will take. It's not impossible to learn a language from scratch in less than a year but, for most learners, it doesn't happen this way. Be ready to approach the learning journey humbly, keeping the mantra 'little and often' in your mind and devoting a bit of time per day to the language. With this method you will find yourself progressing smoothly and painlessly, avoiding the frustrations of wondering why it's all taking so long. You'll get there in the end!
Want to become fluent in French?
Learning a language is on many people’s bucket list. The reasons you’d want to become fluent in a language other than your own are infinite: enhanced travel experiences, work opportunities and a window onto a whole new culture. But a lot of us find that reaching those upper levels in a language is significantly more difficult than we expect and it’s easy to become discouraged and demotivated. But Tutor House's French tutors are here to change all that.
French is among the more challenging of the Latin languages. It does not have the predictable word ending patterns of, say, Spanish or Italian, and the amount of irregular verbs are enough to make anyone feel disheartened. These issues, and various others, can be tough to tackle if you’re approaching the language solo. So why not enlist the help of a tutor? They will break down these early stages of learning into manageable chunks and answer any questions you may have on confusing grammatical areas.
Your French tutor will also give you a chance to increase your exposure to the language in a way that a traditional classroom environment does not. 1:1 tuition is the best way to improve your speaking skills, as you have the space to ask questions, make mistakes and increase your overall confidence. If you’re studying for upcoming assessments, your tutor will help you practice and go over areas that may come up in the exam.
