I can make my way through Spanish and minored in German in college. I recently fell in love with a wonderful quebecois, meaning I felt obligated to learn French since he and the rest of his family are francophones. I have never done anything more difficult in my life. Yes. It is so so so so hard. However, I find it a great deal easier when I'm learning with my boyfriend. He helps and hearing it is far more helpful than reading it from a book because French has a way of pronouncing thing in NO WAY related to how it's spelled. There are a few French websites with games though that I like. My favorite at the moment is Hello-World http://www.hello-world.com/French/index.php Also, for the other languages that I've learned having a discussion partner hasn't really been a big deal. Yet, if you are learning French, it is an absolute necessity. Find someone that you can converse with and will converse back so that you can hear the language frequently.

First, stop comparing it to English. That will confuse you more. Especially when the placement of adjectives changes the whole meaning of the sentence. When I was taking French in college, I really exposed myself to french. I listened to it a lot, while awake and in my sleep. I bought tapes, dictionaries and grammar books. Watched programs in French. You can go to websites as well. You have to really immerse yourself into it (like I did because I wanted an A, lol). Practice it often. Make it a part of you. Yes, I thought it was easy, got an A each semester.
