It would be fair to say that the French are fiercely proud — and justifiably so — of their history and cultural heritage. Let's Not Forget French Film!

The French have always excelled in the arts and this has continued into the modern era with important contributions to music and film. France, arguably more than any other country has elevated cooking to an art form. The key to exploring this culture and that of other French-speaking countries is the French language.

Of course, French culture can be appreciated without speaking the language, but once you understand French you'll find that you're able to explore and appreciate it all much more profoundly.

Jump back to the contents! Is French Hard To Learn? Somewhere along the line, French seems to have picked up something of a reputation for being a difficult language to learn.

But in fact, once you overcome some of the initial unfamiliarity and begin to get a feel for the language, it is actually one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn. In this section, we'll examine some of the main reasons French is not especially difficult for native English speakers to learn: 1. French And English Have A Lot Of Words In Common There is one single fact about French that makes it an easy language for speakers of English to pick up and that is that the two languages share a huge amount of vocabulary.

Since the Norman conquest of Britain in , English has been heavily influenced by French, so an estimated one-third of English words now come from French. This simplifies the task of acquiring large amounts of vocabulary as you'll quickly find that you already know many French words from English. Learners who are just starting out will find that many words in English are exactly the same as in French while others change only slightly.

Even better, many of these words are common, every-day words that you will use often. This means that many modern words are also the same in French as in English — although pronounced with a French accent. Here are some examples: Finally, there are some words which come from French and which have taken on a slightly new meaning in English. However, English-speaking kitchens and restaurants have retained the use of some French terms for positions such as sous-chef, sommelier and so on.

This closeness of French and English has created a problem, however, in that French and English share an unusually high number of faux amis, or false friends too. These are words that look the same but have a different meaning. However, this presents no great problem. As a French learner, you'll soon come to spot these hidden traps. There are a few other areas of French which have a reputation of being difficult but even these are not so difficult when you really look at them.

Take word gender, for example. While in general, there is no way of telling from a noun whether it is masculine or feminine, there are some tips that will help you remember, or at least have an educated guess at a word's gender.

Almost all nouns ending in -aison, -sion, -tion or -xion are feminine Most nouns ending in a consonant are masculine. There are exceptions, of course — but these kinds of tips can help you get started without being overwhelmed. And even if you get it wrong, don't worry! After all, this is something that doesn't really exist in English.

However, learning conjugations is not particularly difficult. Most verbs follow the same patterns so you'll quickly get used to how French verbs work. You'll also notice in the example above that even though the spelling changes, the pronunciation of 4 of the 6 forms is exactly the same!

This makes things a lot easier than they first might seem, at least when speaking.

There are also different verb tenses to learn — but, the basic French tenses, are not particularly difficult to understand even if they are different from English It's simply a case of paying close attention when listening and reading. Unless you learn your second language from a very young age, it is almost impossible to ever achieve native-level pronunciation. Even somebody who marries a person from a foreign country then moves to that country and lives there for twenty years speaking that language every day will still speak with a hint of an accent.

What does this mean for you as a learner? It means that it's ok not to have perfect pronunciation in French. Speaking with a perfect accent is not a realistic objective and however long you learn, the moment you open your mouth, people will probably know where you are from.

The point is to pronounce the words as best you can and well enough that people can easily understand what you're trying to say. Many students focus too much energy on perfecting their accent, which can actually slow your progress.

It is important to remember that perfect pronunciation is never your goal. Your goal should be clear and intelligible pronunciation, and if you can accept this, then you have taken one more step toward acquiring a new language. In French, there are really only two sounds that English-speaking learners need to master from the beginning and after that, the rest is just fine tuning.

However, the first thing to remember is that there is no need to be intimidated by this sound - most people are able to produce a passable imitation of the French 'r' from the beginning and French speakers will be able to understand you. Keep at it and you'll only improve with time. Learning new sounds is like going to the gym, it's difficult at first and you won't see immediate results on Day 1. But if you continue to practice over time to it becomes easier.

The French 'r' actually has more than one sound, depending on where it's located in a word. These sounds are nothing like an English 'r' but neither are they like the Spanish one which is almost a purring noise made by vibrating the tongue against the roof of the mouth.

The French 'R's comes from deeper in the throat and are a little similar to the sound made when clearing one's throat - except softer and less harsh. The first sound is normally used are the beginning of a word, for example in rester, meaning 'to stay'. The second sound normally appears when 'r' follows another consonant in French, for example in the word proche, meaning 'nearby'.Speaking French using English.
