Personally, verb tenses always trip me up. Not so much present or past tense, but once it gets to be like... future tense and things like that, I get frustrated! I'm not sure if other languages have these, but I purchased a 501 French verb book to try to help me... It helped when writing, but not so much with speaking! 


What about you guys?

Hey, guys! Learning from an instructor is a great way to learn a language. I found that some supplement things are good too. Music really helped me. You can listen to how things are pronounced and you can translate the things you know and fill in the gaps! I also like watching movies in the language I'm learning with English (or whatever native language) subtitles on. It also helps with pronunciation! 


If you're learning French, one of my favorite artists is Stromae. One of my favorite movies is Joyeux Noel (although this is also in English and German). 


What ways help you learn a new language?

Hello, all! My name is Kaila. I came to this website to try to use and sharpen my French skills. I studied French for 5 years, but once I got to college my schedule didn’t allow for it. 


Merci et bonne journée!
