These words will help you in practicing the French language every day. 
  • Learn numbers. For more practice, count in French anytime you need to count. Make it a habit and this will ensure you don’t forget anything. Apart from counting in French, learn to think in French and also talk to yourself in French when you are alone. This will help boost your memory.

For example in the English language how is the plural of box- boxes, ox-oxen, goose-geese, and mouse- mice? We can’t understand how that happens thus all have to do is accept and move on. The same should happen when learning French.
  • Do not translate word for word. Avoid translating word for word from English or any other language to French. Translating can make your sentences sound awkward or even give a different meaning from what you intended to say.
  • Set small specific goals. In everything you do in life, it is important to set goals. Small goals create a path to achieving the bigger goals. You can set smaller goals like learning to introduce yourself or being able to maintain a French conversation for 5 minutes or more. These are small goals that are achievable and can be measured and you will know when you achieve the goal. By achieving the small goals, you will realize that you have achieved more than the small goals. 
  • Learn with music. When using music to learn French, please ensure to use the right songs. Get songs that words have been pronounced in the normal way as some artists tend to pronounce words differently. Select songs with lyrics and try to sing along. You will get used to the sound of French songs. Singing along helps your tongue get used to pronouncing words that are unusual in English.
