LEARN FRENCH FAST: How to Become Fluent in French – Follow My Action Plan!


Salut Youtube today you are going to
come with me and we’re gonna learn French fast! I’m actually here with my French professor Aurélie and we’ve come up
together with an amazing plan which is how to learn French super quickly
because in the next three months I need to up my level of French a lot because
I’m going to be passing my DELF B2 exam if you’re actually looking for a French
professor in Paris or anywhere in the world I definitely recommend orally
because she actually specializes in French courses online as well. You can
find me on my website which is called Parisoclock.com you can find all the info
there. Sharing my love for French and the French culture is a passion. I myself
love languages I’ve been living in Mexico Germany and the u.s. so I really
love learning a new language and helping people who are also passionate about
languages so I’ll be happy to help. It has just been so useful to have things fall
into place and it’s made a huge difference so I can definitely 10 out
of 10 would recommend so without further ado let’s get into the video which has
our hacks or our tricks to learn French as quickly as possible from 0 up to
conversational and strong intermediate within six months if you’re living
outside of France and as quickly as three months if you’re living already in
a french-speaking country So we’ve been working on a concept of
how to place a little bit of French in your everyday life we truly believe that
we have 15 hours a week you will be able to improve your French so 15 hours a
week my sounds like a lot of time it sounds like a lot but we have some
really good tricks that will definitely help you the first thing that you could
definitely do is to put some French in your daily habits by listening to
podcasts it’s about taking those rituals that already exist. We assume that 30
minutes per day in the morning you’re either doing some sport or you’re
listening to music or something while you’re getting ready in the morning or
you’re on your way to work or school whatever it is but we assume you have 30
minutes in the morning there are some very good podcasts in French so it’s on
your phone you put your headphones and you’re ready to go. So we have some
recommendations, so actual podcasts to learn French
the first one is coffee break French and this is a podcast where they actually
take someone who speaks no French at all and the first season is about
teaching her all of the basics and so you’ll learn along with her and then
you’ve got season 2 3 & 4 which become more and more advanced then we also
recommend listening to podcasts for enjoyment on topics that you’re actually
passionate about and I’m gonna put a link down in the description box below
with a list of 30 podcast ideas to get you started The second thing that you can do is try to
think about what you like to do in your free time in the evening things that you
would normally do maybe you like to watch the series maybe you like to watch
a movie maybe you like to watch some YouTube videos things that you would
normally do and try to do this in French for instance I am really interested in
in health and food in in veganism so right now I’m watching videos about this
topic doing it in another language of course it is a way to practice this
language so find a particular theme that you’re really interested in that
you’re passionate about that you want to learn more about and try to find videos
in French. Exactly a lot of the youtubers out there subtitle their videos for
example even me I do all of my videos subtitled in English and in French we’ll
put some ideas for youtubers to check out Netflix it’s pretty easy you just
have to switch the language to French you can put the subtitles either in
English or in French depending on your level think about your other rituals, do
you watch the news every evening? Why not watching the global news in French? And
you know do you like to listen to music while you’re cooking in the evening
maybe? You could change it to French music and again we’ll link down in the
description box below some nice French music that you can start listening to.
All of these things add up. We say that you can find easily one hour per week
night you know Monday to Friday to be able to integrate French into your daily
routine so that’s another five hours on the counter Another idea to make things really stick
is to play with these kind of applications that we have available to
us so what I would recommend is to take something like Duolingo or Babbel and to
do it 15 minutes a day seven days a week so where do you find those magical 15
minutes because we’re all very time poor well what I would do is in the morning
if I had a coffee break I would take my coffee by myself and I’ll do a little
bit of work on my app before going back to the my desk also something yet you
can do on your commute home this kind of thing I think 15 minutes we can find
relatively easily seven days a week so now let’s move on to what you can do at
the weekend when you have more time so something that you could do if you like
to watch movies is watch moving French of course and maybe if you’re a beginner
you can start with something easy like for instance a Disney movie if you like
Disney movies or anime movies and then once you’ve reached a higher level you
could switch to a regular movie something that just came out and that
you be wanting to watch anyway. exactly and this is perfect because I
remember what it felt like to be a beginner I chose films like The Lion
King because I knew the storyline off By heart it’s almost like watching a film
with no sound and then you just see what’s happening and you know what’s
gonna happen it’s the storyline but you don’t realize but you’re actually
absorbing a lot of French and a lot of little words here and there like a
puzzle you know bit by bit you’ll start to understand more and more and more it was gonna come and I’m so sorry you
knew it was coming the French grammar yes its toughest it’s
complicated but all we’re asking for to add to the counter is two hours per week
it depends on how you like to learn but this – do you want to explain what this is? –
yeah this is like a Bible, even for French people when we were little at
school and we need to learn French grammar as well that’s what we use it’s
very very well done it’s very precise you find all the rules that you really
need to know if you are someone who enjoys rules and you’re someone who
likes to write things down and learn things off by heart and this kind of
thing this really is you know as Aurélie said it’s the Bible so you can’t do much
better than this it’s very detailed. If you’re someone like me and you need
something very practical I need to do the exercises I can read you know the
rules and it doesn’t make sense to me and then I start doing the exercises and
things start to click and so I use this book which is Grammaire progressive de
français and actually you have the beginner intermediate and advanced
levels and it’s just there’s like one page of explanation and then it jumps
into exercise after exercise after exercise and you’ve got the answers
there are lots of let’s say more fun books out there like there’s this
book the frequency dictionary of French is the most 5000 most frequently used
for each words for example if you’re someone who just wants to jump into
conversation doesn’t really care about the academic side and just wants to get
going something like this might suit you a little bit more. There are loads of options out there I’ll put all of the links to these down below in the description so you can
buy them if you’d like but there is something I think important
would you say as a French professor about learning the basic yes you cannot
go around you need to know the foundation it’s the foundation of your
knowledge of French and then you move on to other fun stuff but the fun stuff
needs to be connected to the to the foundation to the grammar. At the end of the
day it all comes back to speaking to practicing to just speaking speaking
speaking so conversation is really key here for you to improve your French so
this will take just one hour per week there are tons of things you can do
hardly anywhere in the world you will find a French club you’ll be meeting
people will be really happy to practice and speak with you maybe they were gonna exchange let’s say Rosie was to join she will speak English and then the people
speak French to her. It’s called “Franglish” I think in Paris, the language
exchanges, and it’s like speed dating but language speed dating. And if
you don’t have access to such a club you will find tons of websites online some
will be free to be an exchange also that works both for speaking and for writing
because there also you know web sites where you can find French pen pals for
example and this kind of thing that’s why we said at the start that this plan
will get you up to a conversational level easily in six months if you’re outside
of France but if you’re in France it’s only three months because you have so
many opportunities to speak that it should all come together a lot quicker.
Just one note on the speaking and I know it’s so easy to say and harder to do in
reality and I was a huge victim of this I’m speaking of experience like don’t
worry about the mistakes honestly it’s like the more mistakes you make the
bitter because they learned that much faster As you guys can see we’ve tried to focus
really on free things that you can do to self teach yourself French but I have to
say the final thing that will just make everything fall into place is to have a
French professor and what we’re talking about here is 45 minutes to 1 hour per
week for maybe 2 to 3 months and you’ll see a world of difference
this person will follow your progress there will identify the points that you
need to work on they will adapt their class to your specific needs with a
one-to-one relationship it’s really it’s really helpful and it’s really I think
it goes faster for you to improve because it’s really focused on on what
you personally need if you’re super serious about investing and learning
French and becoming fluent to the point where you can converse with native
speakers I think it’s definitely money that you won’t regret spending you know
you’ve got French professors like Aurélie who actually don’t need to
even live in your town you can do it by Skype and we have no problem paying you
know X dollars monthly for our gym membership, think about it
this way you’re training your brain to be able to have a brand new skill and a
new language it’s like it’s like buying a gym membership for a few months to get
nice and fit in French! Cool so I hope you guys enjoyed this plan I’m going to
be doing this plan myself I’ve got big goals I’m passing this exam in July this
year so I’m gonna do a check-in video in three months time and we can see how
much progress I’ve made compared to the video that I filmed in French which I
will link up below you can check that out here and we can do a compare and
contrast I’ll speak in French during the video and you tell me if you see the
progress that I’ve made I hope that helps you guys I hope it inspires you to
get really serious about learning your French and that dream that you want to
make your reality if you guys have any questions if you have any suggestions
for the other learners and you know who are watching this video please put a
comment down below we can carry on the conversation
down there and help each other out but until the next video I’ll see you guys
next time happy French learning and à bientôt, bye!

  13. Another way to augment your second language is to go to Amazon fr and make wish lists of items you would like to purchase. If you make a purchase it can be very enlightening when a package is late. This forces you to apply your knowledge and use the dictionary. By the way there are free resources as well using the Kindle app.

  14. Really, it must be difficult for English to learn French, it's not the easiest language in the world, even some French people have trouble with French conjugation and all that so good luck to you <3

  15. Here's my French music playlist, which I've found useful in learning French:-

    For most of the songs you can go to the lyricstranslate website to find the songs in the original French and the English translation side-by-side:-

  22. I'm starting to learn french by watching the animated film miraculous ladybug. Makes easier for me to remember since I'm learning while having fun.

  23. Salut ! Je suis français et j'étudie l'anglais à l'école mais je ne maitrise pas totalement la langue , j'ai 13 ans je l'a maîtrise un peu mieux qu'un ado de 13 ans grâce à YouTube, les jeux…. Mais j'ai encore du mal à m'exprimer en anglais… Bonne vidéo en tout cas 😉

  24. I’m 14 and people say if your younger you can learn languages more fast. I speak Fluently in Spanish and English. French is like Spanish so I understand a bit. 😓

  25. I'm really committed on learning French, I just don't know if I should take French classes in college and get a minor/associate or something, Instead of paying a private professor 🤔🤨 ( I'm a freshman in college)

  26. This is legit the most useful video I have ever seen on YouTube. I'm moving to France on July 1 and I'm so excited to have a concrete plan to learn French! Does anyone know how to change the Language on Netflix for only one profile and not the entire account? I have a shared account and I only see changing the language for everyone on our account…?

  27. Est-ce que vous pouvez faire un video de l'entretein d'ambauche? Can you do a video on FR job interviews in France? I am beyond terrified!!!

  28. Thank you SO MUCH for this. I majored in French in college and since graduating I've lost a lot of my French and I'm looking to keep it up for future travels! Have been using Duolingo and it's been wonderful for vocab:)

  29. I don't want to learn French but I have to if I'm gonna be able to get into college. So this really helped me. Thank you!

  30. I have a very weird R and in my language I can’t roll my tongue so I’ve been always kinda insecure about it till because people can definitely hear it till I went to Spain where everyone spoke me in french thinking I was french and since that day I’ve learned french and everyone tells me I have a very good pronunciation because of my R 🙂

  31. i have a question. how do you start picking it up? i’m english so french just sounds like gibberish to me but i think it’s such a beautiful and romantic language and i want to learn it. i am so down to put time into this but i just don’t know how i am suppose to pick something up whenever i am listening or watching a video if i do not understand?

  32. I am not sure if I can follow along with podcasts. Because I don’t know a word of French. Do you think it will work for someone who is an absolute beginner?

  33. I love french and I think learn french can be easy for me because I was born in Brazil, therefore I speak portuguese and I speak spanish and italian as well (how you can see I speak english too lol). This three languages are so similar than french. I'll learn french in two years!

  34. I do duolingo! I love it so much! I study for 10 minutes daily sadly due to the fact i work a lot but i still want to stay consistent but sadly i feel like its a language ill never learn properly 😂😭

  35. I studied Spanish and Czech for several years and I keep accidentally speaking those when trying to learn French due to the cognates!!! 😅

  36. Is there an English version of the Bescherelle book set? Beginners would need to be able to read the explanations.
