Maybe you can read children books in French. I also do that, because at the moment i learn Dutch. Or you can Pen-Pal with French people. So, you can practise your writing and read with the person who French is their first language. I do small research for you, do you this site?? http://www.dailyfrenchpod.com/ http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/ http://www.frenchassistant.com/ http://www.lingolex.com/french.htm http://www.easyfrench.net/ Good luck!! Happy Posting...

Do you have account like friendster/hi5/etc. You can find friends who live in France, so...you can start doing PenPal with French, maybe it's help.

hey i'm french and i guess it must be difficult to learn (especially grammar). here are some advice to improve your french my opinion is that you must have fun when you're learning a language or you will never get better. so, watch movies. a lot of movies. you can start by watching them in french but with english subtitles so that you will learn some expressions and it'll help you for the accent. then watch then in french subtitled in french, and finally without subtitles. I don't have a list of films you must see but you can see amelie poulain if you want, it's a great movie. But, do never watch english movies in french because the voices aren't good. In the same time, try to read books in french. they have to be easy to understand but funny too because you don't want to get bored while you're reading. Finally, try to speak with french people. If you need help you can message me I'll do my best to help you. And I hope you'll excuse my bad english, it's difficult to learn too :) Bonne chance ;)

Learning a language? You have to acquire am audio lessons for that. I did. I download from various sites from the Internet! I had a book in French with its correct pronunciations... Every audio lesson that I would listen to, I make sure to imitate what the speaks is saying exactly how he says it! You do not have to first concentrate on how you write down words in French. PLEASE: Concentrate on how to pronounce words and mend together these words to form statements or sentences in French structure... I recommend you purchase a PIMLEUR method for French. You'll be able to learn in no time. Trust me. I did.

I bought some cds, in high school because i was having trouble in my class that taught me the language and correct pronunciations. I would look into that.
