How to learn French?
The best, fastest, most effective, easiest, and most fun way to learn any language is to immerse yourself. Go to an immersion camp, study abroad, or live in a country that speaks the language. You'd be surprised at how quickly you learn if you focus on your goal and soak up the culture and language as much as possible. I studied abroad for a semester and learned more French than I learned in years of school instruction.

According to the US Department of State, it takes 600 classroom hours to learn French and 2200 classroom hours to learn Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. (For English speakers wh…o have 25 hours of class per week and study 3-4 hours outside the classroom) The ease with which you can acquire a particular language depends on what your native language is, how old you are, what are the languages of your environment: family, neighbors, school, TV, Radio, etc. Also, your incentive (your desire to learn another language) has to be very strong; for a better paying job, survival in a foreign country, to relate to a loved one who speaks another language, or possibly to do missionary work with a foreign-language group. It is well known that children can learn several languages, if they are exposed to these languages as they are learning to speak. If you have a background of speaking, writing and reading English or Spanish, French would be easier to learn, because you would probably be learning French from books, tapes, etc., that communicate with you (using 'A,B,C; 1,2,3), to teach French to you. However, if you have a background of speaking, writing and reading most of the Eastern Asian languages, chances are that you will be able to learn Chinese by means of one of these languages. Also, there are several versions of Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin, Hmong, etc). As you know, they use a completely different type of writing, using symbols and combinations of symbols to express a thought.

French may be difficult to learn because of certain challengingsounds, such as the 'r' and the 'u'. It may be difficult to learn because of the grammar. It's a precise languag…e that has definite rules to be respected, and broken conversationally. It may be difficult because of the structure of the syllable. The English language tends to end syllables in a consonant. French tends to do so with vowels. Following English syllable rules can change the sound and meaning of words in French. It may be difficult to learn because of vocabulary. A word such as 'librairie' is a 'false friend', because it means 'book store' not 'library'. Frech is not that hard it's pretty simple ive takin french for 2weeks and learned a buck load it's very easy and the vowels are not that hard to pronouce but i will say french will become hard once it's time to learn about past tense and verbs, stuff like that is complicated, that happens in french IV im in french I Add : Being a french-speaking person myself, I understand that the fact that objects have a genra, meaning that they're either masculine or feminine, is pretty hard to assimilate.
There are a number of fast courses you can take. In addition to those, on order to learn the language faster, it's a good idea to: * read books (that you already know in …English) * watch French films -- in the original language, and, after a while, without subs as well * listen to the radio in French * work daily without fail; half an hour minimum; * practice writing short sentences; * find someone to talk to to improve your grasp of the language A big no-no: chat rooms -- they're full of teenagers who haven't the slightest clue as to how to spell correctly. You can learn some slang from them, but not the French language. Learning a language isn't the same for everyone. Some need to put a lot of effort into it, and to others it's a lot easier. There is no magic recipe. Except the three P's: practice, practice, practice.
Because it is Canada's second language!!! Answer:Canadians do no have to learn French. As a bilingual country both French and English are the official languages (there… is no first and second language). All Canadians must be educated in one or the other and all government services are offered in both. Typically Canadians are offered the option of learning the alternate language in school. This allows you to visit all parts of the country and be understood and increases your chances of finding a common language in most parts of the world that you may visit. More Accurate Answer: In many parts of Canada learning French is not optional. In some you may not send your children to anything but a French School, in others the courses are not optional until later in their education. This is first hand information so I know it to be so. The reason why dates back to the mid 1700's when Britain finally took control of all of North America (well not quite all but all of today's Canada). Their new possessions included Quebec with a large number of French people. Traditionally when France would take new lands they would demand everyone convert to the use of French or leave. The British would also take such action and did elsewhere in Canada but in the case of Quebec, they promised that the French could stay and their language and culture would be defended. So the French continued to be French and received similar protections when Canada Confederated. When Canada expanded and colonised much of what is today Canada they brought with them special status for the French, even in places were there were few and often no French people. For most of Canada, at least in area, French is the language of the country that colonised them. This is made obvious when the Canadian government reserves many jobs for french speakers often over more qualified local people. Many Canadians have to learn French due to historical reasons and because the French in Canada are not willing to extend the same rights of culture to other groups that they themselves have received.

french and spanish ;) French was the traditional first 'second' language for British people to learn, partly because France is just across the English Channel, also becau…se French was the international language of diplomacy. Logically it might be better to learn Spanish, because there are more Spanish speakers in thec world. There is not an absolute answer to a question like that, it depends on the use you might get from either language.
