Does the idea of learning French make you shiver? You are not alone! In today's edition, we ask readers to give us their very best tips on learning French!
Whether you have improved your French with audio CDs, a tutor, or by participating in an intensive program--we would love to benefit from your experience. Thank you for using the comments box to share helpful ideas for language learning.
To improve your French did you use flash cards? Do you watch French films? Do you carry around a pocket-size French-English dictionary? Subscribe to the French version of Reader's Digest? Do you attend a local French meet-up? Welcome exchange students to your home? Do you fall asleep to French music in hopes your subconscious will record it all by memory? Do you secretly follow Francophones at the mall, like I used to do?
