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.

la langue de la langue franÃ§aise In English we do not say "the language of French." We say the "language of France," or the "French language." L a langue franÃ§aise, in either case.
It is impossible to say exactly what is the first known language.. The first well-documented languages were: 1. ASIA- Sumerian cuneiform, South Mesopotamia (Iraq) in the 5th millennium B.C. , and Chinese ideograms, 4th millennium B.C. 2. AFRICA- Aegyptian hieroglyphs ,4th-3th millennium B.C. 3. EUROPE- Indo-Aryan or Indo-European language, i.e. an unrecorded prehistoric language from which nearly all European languages are descended , c.2500 B.C.
The first formal system of writing was possibly cuneiform developed by the Sumerians in the 4th millennium BC. The Sumerians probably further developed a still earlier, but less formal system of writing.
La langue franÃ§aise (because the word "language" is feminine). FranÃ§aise is the feminine form, and if you're describing a masculine noun, the adjective would be franÃ§ais , without the "e". If you simply want to say "I speak French", you would say "Je parle franÃ§ais". If you are a male, "I am French" would be "Je suis franÃ§ais". For a female, "Je suis franÃ§ais e ". (Notice that in French, adjectives referring to nationality are NOT capitalized as they are in English).
There are 3 different ways of saying 'your' in French:. . If the object (not person) you're talking about is masculine, you say 'ton'. For example, "J'aime ton livre" (I like your book). It doesn't matter whether the person you're talking to it male or female, it only depends on the object.. . If the object (not person) you're talking about is feminine, you say 'ta'. For example, "J'aime ta maison" (I like your house). 'maison' is feminine and therefore you say 'ta'. . If the object you are talking about is plural (there is more than one of it/them), you say 'tes'. For example, "J'aime tes cheveux" (I like your hair).

Togo was one of the African countries that some time in the past were invaded and then dominated (in this case, as a part of "Golden Coast", in Western Africa) by French (first by Germans), until it could get independence (in 1960 only!!!); so folks there were obliged to learn how to speak French, otherwise they would be completely excluded (as some perhaps still are), so that that European way of speaking became its official language up to now, besides several African others, some mixed or having distinct dialects - none of these being official, only French!

Before the Roman Empire, the Gauls lives in the area where we find France right now. The Gauls spoke Gallic. Then, the Romans conquered the Gauls, and forced them to speak Latin. This became a local accent, the so-called Gallo-Roman. After the Roman Empire, the Franks conquered the area, and these Franks had had a big influence on the language of the French people, but still their language was Old French (ancien franÃ§ais). From the Roman Empire until around 1800, there were a lot of changes of accent (nowadays, the accent is on the last syllabe), and very much changes of voyelles. Since around 1800, the language hasn't changed that much, and since then, we call it Modern French.

Cuniform is the oldest existing example of a written langage we have; it was invented by the Sumarians. Proto-Indo-European is the oldest known language, and this is not the name of it, just a label applied to it so it can be discussed; however, there are no examples of this language still in existence. A partial lexicon of the language has been extrapolated and reconstructed by linguists and anthropologist by the examination of other very old languages that share this common root.
The development of the English language comes from many sources. There are many English words that are French. An example of this is the word "beef". After 1066 when William ( who was French) conquered England all of the kings and nobility only spoke French ( the queens menus today are still only in French) while the common man spoke a form of old English. The Vikings also added words to English ( many names of things/places are Norse even today) and there is a German influence, but the French remains the most dominate in English.
That is binary code! Binary code is what your computer basically runs off of. Those 1's and 0's are executed by the CPU, which then turns into a program such as an internet browser. Another cool fact about binary code, is that you can hide messages in it!

Yes, the British language is know as English. In UK(United Kingdom), Scotland, Norway, England, Great Britain and Ireland, people were speaking English in those countries in Europe. Their English is a British action but they speak English like people in the United States.
French and English are very different languages, but they are both categorized as "romance languages" or "latin-based languages so there are quite a few words in both langauges that are based on the same roots. Many french words are spelled the same as english words, but pronounced differently. Typically if you speak one of these languages the other should be fairly easy to learn, as compared to a language with a different base, such as Chinese. But people who speak only English won't be able to understand a French speaker, or vice versa, with some learning of the other language (in other words, they are not just dialects of the same language). English is not a Latin based (romance) language. It is Germanic, replacing the existing Celtic (Welsh) language following the Anglo-Saxon invasions. That Celtic was also a consequence of even earlier Celtic settlement. It does use quite a lot of French-origin words as a result of the Norman Conquest. French and English are both "Indo-European" because they both follow many common attributes of many Languages of India and Europe.
English has become an internationally spoken language largely because of the size of the British Empire. The British explored the globe, settled in numerous regions such as Africa , Asia, Australia and North America. Although the empire is no more, a legacy of English language was left with the countries. At the same time, England was one of the most active trading countries in world. Traders in other countries found it beneficial to learn English to develop trade links and do business with the British.

French language is based on Latin, but was also noticeably influenced by Germanic dialects (The Franks who gave their name to France were a northern Germanic tribe). Occasionnally, some words were adopted from local dialects and languages (Breton, Flemish, Occitan, ...) or foreign languages (Arabic, English, Italian, Spanish, German, etc..).
Lot of words are the same in french and spanish language. These two languages have the same root : the latin language. But a french and a spanish can't understand each other because words are modified, conjugation is not the same... Exemple : Yo vivo en una casa de mÃ¡s de treinta aÃ±os. Je vis dans une maison depuis plus de trente ans. (I live in a house since thirty years)
