French is the second most widely taught foreign language in the world. Weirdly, however, and despite the staggering amount of material available on the topic, there is a distinct lack of resources that approach the subject in a fun and lively a manner.
Complete beginners are often overloaded with complex grammar lessons that add more confusion than clarity.
This is the glaring omission I attempt to cover in my website, the subsequent emails, newsletters, and of course, this grammar course. Since the creation of my website www.talkinfrench.com, my team and I have endeavored to approach learning French in an unconventional way by making it engaging, friendly, and injected with a little bit of humor here and there.
I am not going to sugarcoat my words and say that learning French is just a walk in the park. Unless you are a linguistic genius, it’s definitely not easy.
Learning French takes time and effort. You will experience a lot of hurdles along the way, and in a lot of cases, slow progress can break even the most motivated learner’s spirit.
This is where developing a learning habit comes in. This course provides you with short and practical grammar lessons, which you can accomplish at less than 15 minutes per day or 30 to 45 minutes including the exercises.
By building on this daily 15-minute routine, you’ll be able to slowly work your way into creating a healthy learning habit.
This course is also available in e-book format in the form of two French grammar e-books which you may download and save to any of your devices. If you wish to continue learning offline to make use of your time while on your commute or doing other tasks, you may also use the e-book version of this course.
Simply download the PDF or epub version and the free MP3 files which you can get in the first lesson labeled Offline Materials. It is already available in the email receipt upon purchase of this course.
Reading about the different grammar points being rattled off in succession is hardly a fun way to learn. To help you grasp faster the grammar topics introduced in the lessons, you will also find short stories to illustrate the grammar point in every lesson.
Each story is only around 300 words and includes the English translation plus audio for your listening practice.
By seeing and listening to examples of how each grammar point is used, you will be able to construct sentences and grasp the concept easily and more naturally. Truly a fun and interesting way to solidify the lesson!
With that said, I hope you’ll join me on a 60-day journey to learn the ropes of French grammar. So come on! Hop on board with me for two short months and let’s make learning French a habit!
