The key to learning French can really be summed up with one simple word - Practice!
There are 4 key components to learning any foreign language: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
Which one of these is the "Odd-One-Out"? Which one of these is different from the other three? The answer is speaking because the other three can be done alone. It's possible to listen to the radio alone, read a book alone or write a letter; however it's impossible to take part in a conversation without the interaction of someone else. The 'speaking' element of learning a language is so crucial, which is why anyone seriously wanting to learn French should make every effort to find a qualified native French speaker to practice and learn in partnership with.
Of course not everyone has a French language teacher on their doorstep and to many the idea of driving to a French class and speaking in public is one which fills them with dread. Verbalplanet.com; the online language training and tuition website can offer a solution. Their online French language classes are a great way to get the benefits of one to one French language training and tuition without any of the hassles of travelling, large class sizes or lack of an available French language teacher.
Verbalplanet.com offers a unique and entirely web based approach to learning French using Skype internet telephony. Through the Verbalplanet.com site a language learner can select an online French teacher, schedule classes at times that fit around their lifestyle and enjoy interactive online French lessons with their own personal native speaking French tutor over the internet.
"French remains one of the most popular languages to learn however it's a relatively difficult language to pronounce correctly. Online French classes with a native speaking tutor are an ideal way to perfect your accent, improve fluency & build confidence. A student that lacks confidence in their ability will thrive under the guidance of a good tutor." says Andy Moore of Verbalplanet.com.
“One of the biggest advantages of learning online is that it removes distance as a barrier to education and can provide the learner with a truly interactive experience. For example, using Verbalplanet.com anyone wanting to learn how to speak French can take an online French class from the comfort of their own home with a French tutor who actually lives in France, regardless of where they happen to be in the world.” Adds Moore.
One to one French classes enable the tutor to devote their attention to the student for a significant period of time, focusing far more on that particular student’s needs and abilities than is possible in a crowded classroom. Learning French online also allows the student to relax in familiar surroundings allowing them to feel more confident and more willing to discuss areas of difficulty.
The number of French language tutors on Verbalplanet.com means that it's possible to select a tutor that matches specific learning requirements. Included with every tutor profile is a short bio, which allows the user to get to know a potential teacher before booking lesson time. The availability of free trial lessons by many language tutors also means that it is possible to evaluate the service before committing to buying further lesson time.
