Frequently asked questions
While rumors abound that French is the most difficult Romance language to learn, it’s simply not true. Like learning any new skill, several factors will determine how quickly you will grasp French, including how many languages you currently speak, your motivation behind studying French, the quality of the lessons, and, importantly, how much time you can devote to practice. As you begin, you’ll see a few similarities and differences between French and English. For starters, close to 45% of English words have a French origin. This means many words like “date” or “art” will look very familiar, although pronounced differently. Mastering the pronunciation of French words will take practice. But if you take the time to really learn how to enunciate the vowels and the letter “r,” you’ll be a few steps ahead. In the beginning, it’s easy to be shy about pronouncing a word, but keep working through it. Remember, you’ll learn more by making mistakes than not trying.
