Plan your days to get better in French

Hi, Welcome all on Fast French Learning, the blog to Learn and Improve your French 🇫🇷 😀

At the first sight, it seems that learning a foreign language without having courses is discouraging. How can you keep the motivation up to be good at using the French language soon ? You can make your own courses to study the way you want, maybe it is more suitable for you like this, to study the French language quicker. It is a free course. For a the others ones you need to pay.

Here are a few reasons to learn the French language by yourself

Learn at your own pace and make your own plan

Today the everyday life is full of things that need to do very quickly, it is not always possible to take nomal classes. If you study by yourself you are able to learn the French language whenever you want wherever you want according to your planning.  

You are going to have less anxiety and tension if you learn a foreign language by yourself

During the normal classes you have to do some tests and quizzes in front of all the people of your class. For a lot of people it is difficult to do it, it is a pressure, and it is a fence to realize their dreams. The experience of learning alone make this feeling removed. Learning at your own pace outside of the classroom make the tension reduced.

To improve your mental functions while learning alone

When you learn the French language at school you have to memorize a lot of informations and applying the guideline. When you do it by yourself you need to find the solution to your own problems. You need to be very discipline to reach your what you want.


Choose your goals consciously, choose goals that you are sure you can reach them. I suggest you to define what you want to learn (which topics you really want to handle), be sure that you can study it in an efficient way and then having the pleasure of reaching it. 

I suggest you to pay attention to the time you are going to need to study some topics, some subjecs will require more time than the others to go deeper into them. What do you want to learn first ? What do you need to learn first ? These are important questions. Then, you build up your planning according to them :  Do you want to focus on conjugations rules ? On grammar rules ? Do you want to focus 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 ?...

It is important as well that you pay attention to the time you have everyday, 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 times you will not want to study you will prefer to rest. So, it is better to study a little bit everyday, to be regular in your learning journey. To reach what you want. 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 part of the French language you want to study, I suggest you to seperate them into small parts to make it clearer. It is better to do this to feel free in your head for your leaning journey. While you are studying, it is nice if you do not think of the courses you want to do, or what are the best content that you can read. All what you study needs to be clear in the frame of your plan. You make a pause, then when you go back to study, you should be easily to continue studying : conjuagtions, conversations, memory, oral understanding (watch movies with and without subtitles), to be able to have fluent talks with French native people.

How can you choose a subject ? For example : « how to conjugate a verb ? » is too general, « how to conjugate the verb être (to be) in the past tense ? » is too precise. The right one would be « how to conjugate the verb être ? ».  The good thing with this approach is you have your target that you do everyday, but at the same time you can study what you want to study in a specific 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.

Here is the verb être (to be)

In the present tense
Je suis → I am
Tu es → You are
Il/elle est → He/she is
Nous sommes → We are
Vous êtes → You ar  
Ils/elles sont → They are

In the past tense (le passé composé)
J'ai été → I was
Tu as été → You were
Il/elle a été → He/she was
Nous avons été → We were
Vous avez été → You were
Ils/elles ont été → They were

In the past tense (l’imparfait)
J'étais → I was
Tu étais → You were
Il/elle était → He/she was
Nous étions → We were
Vous étiez → You were
Ils/elles étaient → They were

In the future tense
Je serai → I will be
Tu seras → You will be
Il/elle sera → He/she will be
Nous serons → We will be
Vous serez → You will be
Ils/elles seront → They will be
