Online French lessons or offline French classes?

Let’s face it: learning French is mostly about perseverance, about committing to improve your language skills one day at a time. It all comes down to the amount of work you put in to study French and your willingness to stick to it even when it seems too much to handle.

Being human makes us easily distracted and it can sometimes feel hard to stick to something for a long period of time. But there are solutions out there that can help us out. One solution is to enroll in a language school and go to French classes. However, taking an offline French class can be quite expensive and time consuming.

A second solution is cultural immersion: going to a French speaking country to live the real French dream. No doubt about it, this is the ideal way to learn any language because you get to speak with natives, learn their correct pronunciation and live the way they do. Unfortunately, moving to a different country is something most of us cannot afford.

Don’t let this demoralize you! The good news is you can now immerse yourself in a different culture from the comfort of your own home. How? By enrolling in some of the best online French courses in the world.

Did you know?

Alongside English, French is the only language being taught in every country on Earth by over 2 million teachers, 200000 of which teach outside of the francophone countries. Speaking of francophone countries, La Francophonie, the international organization representing the regions or countries where French is spoken in a significant amount has now 56 members, 4 more than the more widely known Commonwealth that has formerly represented the British Empire.

It’s worthwhile noting that around 30% of the French language has English origins. This is a strange fact because French and English don’t have the same language roots. However, history has seen a lot of interactions between France and England so the two countries have borrowed different words from one another over the decades. Some words borrowed by the English are “pedigree”, “challenge” and “surf”. Also, most English words ending in “-tion” or “-sion” have the same meaning and are spelled almost exactly the same as their French versions: “action”, “intuition”, “passion” or “décision”. In conclusion, if you are lucky enough to know English you will feel it’s significantly easier to learn French. So, why not start today?
