Learning French in 6 weeks

learn french in 6 weeks

Are you wondering how much French you can learn in 6 weeks?

Usually, learning a language in 6 weeks helps you get familiar with the basics and converse with a stranger to ask simple directions.

However, you might surprise yourself by learning a lot more than you think along the journey.

What can I expect during my 6-week journey?

Despite your learning goals and dedication to the language, there are a few things to remember before you jump into this challenging lesson plan.

1. Fluency is not your friend, immersion is. At the end of six weeks, your level will depend upon how much you immerse yourself in French.

2. You are on the right track if you make a lot of mistakes. The number of mistakes you make account for the number of new things you learn in French.

3. Slow progress is still progress.  It’s fine if you take 2 days to finish a topic that you had planned to do in one day. What matters is that you learned something new and had fun along the way.

4. Don’t rely much on where you will end up. Focus on the process and not the result. Set realistic goals and stick to them throughout the journey.

How can I learn French in 6 weeks?

Now that we know what we can expect let’s dive into the learning process and turn it to our advantage.

If we look at the bright side, you are not alone in this. A lot of people have challenged themselves to learn a language in 6 weeks, one month and some go the extra mile to make it happen in 7 days. They have certainly not been fluent but they have achieved the reasonable goals they set.

We do realize that it relatively takes a long time to master French. However, with the right focus on the right areas and a slight variation in your learning methods, you could learn a lot more than just a few basic phrases.

1. Focus on what’s important

How do I know what’s important? Just ask that same question with your native language as the reference. Take your daily routine and note the most common phrases and verbs you use. It might cover topics like general habits, friends, hobbies, school, work, etc.

Focus on one topic and find its equivalent in French. Start with the verbs related to it and conjugate them in the simple present. Learn vocabulary around that topic and play with it.

Repeat them to get more familiar with the pronunciation. Make use of apps and websites to find interesting ways to learn more about the topic along with the exceptions and rules that are attached to it.

2. Don’t just learn, utilize it

We might learn 20 new vocabularies a day or more and learn the conjugations of few verbs and never be more satisfied when that day ends.

The next day arrives, we repeat the same process and at the end of the sixth week, we find our inability to frame a simple sentence. It’s never about how much we learn, it’s always about how much we put it to use.

So, the next time you learn the conjugations of a verb form 5 to 10 basic sentences with that. if “aller” (to go) is your chosen verb, form simple sentences utilizing the conjugations that you have learned to improve your spoken French much faster.

In this way, you hit the jackpot by learning 2 things at a time. On one hand, you learn the conjugations needed for you to communicate. On the other hand, you learn useful sentences and actually find ways to communicate.

3. Be consistent

Consistency is the key to learning a language in the fastest way possible. When we spend two to three hours every day for more than 30 days it becomes a part of our routine. We make it a habit to incorporate French into our schedule.

It can get a little tiresome when we include a lot of lessons in a short time. Therefore, set manageable goals, keep your lessons short and precise to be more consistent.

Consistency and motivation go hand in hand. When we are consistent we get motivated thereby reaping the benefits much sooner. If we skip two or three days we lose motivation to move forward which eventually leads us to give up on our learning process.

4. Find your definition of fun

All work and no play make everyone a dull person. There is something that intrigues all of us in almost every single area. In the same way, find things that you enjoy and practice them in French.

If you love to sing, listen to French songs. If you love watching movies, watch French movies. If you love photography, capture pictures and name the things in it in French. If you love journaling, write 2 to 3 lines in French at the end of your day.

Spending all our time memorizing French vocabularies, identifying the gender of the nouns, and conjugating the verbs will only make you book smart not street smart.

The best way of learning is when we are not aware of the fact that we are learning because we are too busy enjoying it.

Are you up for the challenge?

Challenge yourself to see how much French you can acquire in 6 weeks. Despite learning more or less it’s still worth giving it a try. Fluency is not achieved overnight. It depends on the little effort that we take every day.

So make sure you continue to keep in touch with French even after 6 weeks because you never know what wonders learning a language can bring in your life.
