You can study first with textbooks, workbooks to get the basics of the language : the essential conjugation and grammar, and the words, sentences and expressions you need to know to have the vital oral exchanges. Find a support material which is relevant to your goal, for example if you want to go to Paris for the holidays visiting museum, do not choose a book whith a big list of words related to something you do not want to do, for example words about cooking, but learn the following sentences : Bonjour, combien coûte un billet pour visiter le musée ? → Hello, how much does a ticket cost to visit the museum ?

Set up a learning structure
It woud be different for everyone maybe, but be aware of these two points :
– You need to study a specific rule at a time : studying two or more element at the same time make the learning harder, it is not efficient, so it will be harder to build up confidence. It is better to study for example specifically how to make a negative phrase instead of learning the structure of the sentence in general.
– Each rule, each thing you study has to be related to your goal. If your goal is to go in a French speaking country to visit, for example going to Paris to visit the Eiffel tower and the Musée du Louvre, you have to study
+the basics sentences ( Quel est sont les bus qui vont au musée de Louvre ? → What are the buses that go to the Musée du Louvre ? / Combien coûte le ticket pour visiter le musée, s’il-vous-plait ? → How much does cost the ticket to visit the museum, please ? )
+the oral comprehension : being able to understand pretty easily what the native people are saying.
+having a good pronunciation to be easily understood by the French people, having a good one is hard but at least paying attention to this part of your study.
The progression has to be logical, begin to learn the present tense before a complicated tense. And do not study what you will not need for your journey in Paris, you do not need to know the subjunctive tense to manage your trip. If you want to go deeper into the language you can learn it when you will be back from your travel, for the pleasure, and to have better conversations, and getting more fluency for your next trip in a French speaking country.
