You may have heard that learning French is hard, especially as an adult. While it may be challenging, the truth is that anyone can learn to speak a new language with confidence. Including French. Research suggests that your ability to learn a language is mostly a matter of practice—building confidence through speaking, and contextualizing your learning.
And here’s another bit of good news. When you’re excited to learn a new language, even the hardest ones can seem fun. Because the sense of accomplishment that you’ll get with taking on the challenge, and overcoming it, is invaluable.
Your overall success and speed at which you’ll learn, will largely be dictated by your commitment and the quality of your language learning program. That’s what makes finding a trusted program so important.
Whether you consider French easy to learn, or more challenging, Rosetta Stone has over 25 years of experience with getting new language learners prepared to use French in everyday life.
Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology will teach you to speak the French language, not merely how to memorize the words. What makes this approach effective is that we prepare you to use your new language in everyday life, making it less about the features, and more about what you are able to do because of them. This prepares you to handle any situation with confidence.
Once beginning learners have acquired basic words and proper pronunciation, the natural transition to learn the longer phrases that make up so much of everyday conversation comes into play. Rosetta Stone's brief, 10-minute lessons are constructed with this in mind. We first teach the basics, then move onto longer phrases which helps you acquire the skills to understand and be understood with confidence.
Developing accurate pronunciation as a beginner is incredibly important, and depends on getting immediate feedback on your pronunciation efforts. Rosetta Stone helps you to achieve accurate pronunciation from the onset of your learning with our patented TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine . Your voice will be instantly compared to native speakers, and real-time feedback given to allow you to fine-tune your accent. This feature is a powerful tool for ensuring success in learning to speak and be understood in French.
