3 reasons to learn a language alone

1 – Learn at your own pace and on your own schedule

In today’s fast-paced world, there is not always time for traditional classroom instruction. But when you learn alone you can study anywhere and any time that suits your schedule best. It makes it far easier to reach what you want to learn and mastering a language.

2 – Learning a language on your own reduces stress and anxiety

In traditional classroom settings there are tests, quizzes and presentation in front of classmates. For some people these classroom pressures are a big hurdle for their language learning dreams. Learning alone remove this. Learn outside of a classroom can help reduce some of the stress you may feel.

3 – Learning alone helps to improve the cognitive functions

In the classroom you will spend lots of time memorizing information and following instructions. When you did it on your own it requires you have to solve problems. You have to be strict with yourself and stick to a regular study schedule.   

Beginner, learners : how to learn French in 1 month for lessons

Set up a plnning

Do not have goals that you will not be able to reach. I suggest you to have a specific idea of what you want to learn (which topics you really want to handle), of what you want to practice, being sure that you can study it well and then having the satisfaction of achieving it.  

Be aware of the time you will need to study certain topics, some subjecs will require more time than the others to go deeper into them. Think about what are your priorities and set up your planning according to them : do you want to focus on conjugations rules ? On developing your conversations skills ? Getting more fluency in watching movies with and without subtitles ? Being able to understand easily the French native speakers ? How to improve your memory to get more words ? …

You have to take into account, as well, the time you have every day, you need to work from 9 am to 7 pm , and you go to bed at 11 pm, before 7 pm and 11 pm you have to cook, to eat and take a few time to rest. Some days you will be tired and some days you will feellike you do not  want to study. So the key is the to study a few amount of time every day and be discipline to reach your goals, to keep up the motivation, to get fluency in speaking French, to feel good in immersion in France or in a French speaking country, in a variety of situations.

Once you know all the element of the language you want to learn, seperate them into small parts to make it clearer. You need to do this to be free in your mind when you will study. While studying, you do not have to think of the courses you want to do, or what are the best resources to help you out. Everything has to be clear all along the plan, as you go back to studying after a pause, you are able to learn easily what you are supposed to learn to learn and improve your French : conjuagtions, conversations, memory, oral understanding (watch movies with and without subtitles), te be able to have fluent talks with French native people.

When you choose a subject do not be too general and do not be too specific : « how to conjugate a verb ? » is too general, « how to conjugate the verb être (to be) in the past tense ? » is too specific. The right subject is « how to conjugate the verb être ? ». The good thing with this approach is you have your daily target, but at the same time you can study what you want to study in a given subject. For example, with the subject « how to conjugate the verb être ? », you can choose to work on the present tense and the past tense (le passé composé) or to work on the future tense and the past tense (l’imparfait).

You have an idea of what you want to learn, you know when you want to finish it (in 3 months, in 6 months, in 1 year), what is your time slot (I recommend you to take 20 minutes a day, especially if you are busy). Set up some times for the revision, it is very important to review what you have learnt to be able to memorize it and to use it in the real life (to understand a film, the radio, a talk with someone, readong a book easily,…). Write it down, make a table.
