3 TIPS ON MOTIVATION: HOW NOT TO GIVE UP FRENCH !

French Lesson Transcript:

SALUT TOUT LE MONDE!

I was wondering what to teach you today and then I remembered how the students I had in L.A. often complained about how boring their French lessons were (not with me ! At school) and how difficult it was to stay motivated and not give up French.

ALORS COMMENT RESTER MOTIVÉ QUAND ON APPREND LE FRANÇAIS ? C’EST VRAI, PARFOIS C’EST ENNUYEUX, ON DOIT MÉMORISER LES CONJUGAISONS DE PLEIN DE VERBES IRRÉGULIERS…

DES RÈGLES DE GRAMMAIRE BIEN COMPLIQUÉES…

INSERT:

  • ILS SE SONT TÉLÉPHONÉ, no « S » at the end of the past participle TÉLÉPHONÉ
  • But why ? I thought all past participles of reflexive verbs needed to agree with the subject ?
  • OUI MAIS QUAND IL S’AGIT DE VERBES QUI SONT NORMALEMENT SUIVIS D’UN COMPLÉMENT D’OBJECT INDIRECT, L’ACCORD NE SE FAIT PLUS. (fast forward)
  • Pffff.

ET LES EXPRESSIONS BIZARRES, C’EST PAS DU GÂTEAU, NON PLUS.

INSERT :

  • JE SERAI PARFAITEMENT TRILINGUE QUAND LES POULES AURONT DES DENTS.

BREF, IL EST PARFOIS DIFFICILE DE RÉSISTER À LA TENTATION TERRIBLE D’ABANDONNER LE FRANÇAIS.

NON ! N’ABANDONNEZ PAS !!!

I’ve put a few tips together to help you stay motivated to learn French. Because it’s worth it, trust me ! I’ve learned English so, your turn to speak my native language !

CONSEIL No.1 : FIXEZ-VOUS UN OBJECTIF

Maybe you’re planning a trip to France.

Maybe you’ve got a French partner in your life : UN COPAIN, UNE COPINE, UNE ÉPOUSE, UN MARI. If not, go find one ! Just kidding. Even though, that really helps !

Maybe you need to speak French at work so that you can have meetings with French business people who speak terrible English. « Senk you very much ».

CES OBJECTIFS SPÉCIFIQUES JOUENT UN RÔLE CLÉ DANS VOTRE MOTIVATION

So if you’re just learning French for fun, if you don’t have a specific objective, get one ! I’m not even kidding here. It can be a simple one. Maybe you can register to take a French exam of some sort or you can find online tests that you can do regularly to see your progression. Or maybe your goal is to find a French lover. That’s a good enough objective.

DANS TOUS LES CAS, JE ME RÉPÈTE PARCE QUE C’EST IMPORTANT, FIXEZ-VOUS UN OBJECTIF POUR RESTER MOTIVÉ

INSERT:

  • OUAIS BEN MOI J’APPRENDS L’ANGLAIS POUR PÉCHO QUOI.

CONSEIL No.2 : BLOQUER UN PEU DE TEMPS CHAQUE SEMAINE – OU ENCORE MIEUX, CHAQUE JOUR, POUR BOSSER VOTRE FRANÇAIS

It can be 5 minutes every day, reading new vocabulary before going to bed, watching a video on your favorite youtube channel, Oh la la, writing for 5 minutes in French ! These are all great ways to work on your French skills every single day.

Or you can also book a tutor to have a French conversation once a week for example.

Or you can find a French conversation group online or in your neighborhood.

TROUVEZ DES AMIS FRANÇAIS SUR INTERNET. Feel free to go to the Ohlala Facebook page to get that done.

See, you have options. But don’t stay alone in your corner with your French books and films. You’ll get bored.

  • OH LÀ LÀ, QU’EST-CE QUE JE M’EMMERDE !

CONSEIL No.3 : ALLEZ DANS UN PAYS FRANCOPHONE

BARREZ-VOUS, FICHEZ LE CAMP !

Go to whichever French speaking country you want or can go to. The very best way to learn the language is and will always be to spend time surrounded by French speakers. And be talkative guys, that’s so important, be daring, jump in, get dirty. Well… Don’t be shy, I mean. Know what you want and speak away. The more you speak the better your French will become and then you’ll see that you’re making progress and then you’ll see your motivation go up.

And thus goes the virtual circle of learning French… UN JOLI CERCLE VERTUEUX. And it might be good for you to know that, despite their sometimes challenged reputation, the French don’t bite, I promise ! Except this one, but sometimes only.
