3 Hacks to Learn Canadian French Online
Learning Canadian French is a fun exercise. It's a wonderful mix of French and English. These three tricks allow you to start learning Canadian French (or any other language) completely free. Enjoy!
When you learn Canadian French online, you will discover that there are tons of free resources available. Some of these are worth looking into and others arenít all that effective. There are also paid programs. Some are worth the money and others are mostly marketing hype.
Whichever program or system you decide to use, here are three free tricks to help you learn French online.1.††† Free Grammar Correction
Go to translate.google.fr and type a sentence in French. How does the translation look? Is it correct? Then itís safe to assume that the French version was correct.
Iíve discovered that Google translate can be very useful for understanding grammar. Sure, it often gives totally idiotic and useless translations, but not when the source sentence was correct!
Play with the original sentence. Tweak it and replace words, and youíll see how the translation changes. This is a great way to start understanding the grammar of Canadian French.2.††† Pretty Amazing Spoken Word
Google translate also gives you an option to listen to a word or a sentence. Just click the icon and you hear it spoken. The drawback is that itís at normal spoken speed, which is often too fast to learn pronunciation.
In the programs of Language101.com there is a feature that plays the audio at normal speed and at slow speed. That means you can really learn the right pronunciation, as easily as if you had a real life teacher. Except the program has infinite patience, so you win twice.
†3.††† Learn Without Doing Anything
Iím not joking, you can actually learn on autopilot. Of course you will always have to do something to get results. But if you watch a foreign movie with original audio and English subtitles, your brain will be making connections and form understanding on itís own. And you wonít have to sit down and study for it, so itís pretty automatic, Iíd say. Great way to learn, because you also learn about the culture, and not just the language.
So with these three tips, I hope youíll improve your fun and progress in your endeavors to learn French online.† Why not give our Free Demo a try? Start learning Canadian French right now! Itís free :)
