The grammar you need to learn to progress, you will learn it step by step.

If someone is focused on everything of what you say your progression will be fast.

I suggest you to take a few time everyday, you can write what you did yesteday or what you did today. It is a good way to print the new informations in your mind and so to improve your target language (the French language for you).
