Current students include British people and Americans who retired in the South of France, college students who want to get better grades, busy professionals who want to speak French before going to France with their family and people who have been struggling for years before they discovered the French Together method.

Avoiding these 2 mistakes is essential if you ever want to speak and understand French
You may think you just need to work harder, you may think you’re too old to learn French, you may think you’re bad at learning languages.

Truth is, the reason why so many French learners struggle to speak and understand French is that they simply make the following two mistakes.

Mistake #1 Wasting your time learning vocabulary
There is nothing more frustrating than spending months learning French only to realize that the words you know are useless in a real-life conversation.

Yet, that’s what happens to most French learners who learned French the traditional way. They know lots of words but can’t form sentences because the French they know isn’t the French they need to speak French.

The kind of sentences most French courses and apps teach you
That’s a shame because, according to L’encyclopédie Incomplčte, the same 600 French words represent 90% of words used in common French texts.

Knowing these words won’t make you fluent but it will make it considerably easier for you to understand the language.

That’s why it’s essential to focus on high-frequency vocabulary and say goodbye to old-fashioned methods that make you waste your time learning how to say ruler and peony.

Mistake #2 Giving too much importance to grammar rules
Most French learners start by learning conjugation tables by heart and obsessing over the most insignificant aspects of French grammar.

They spend days learning rules they don’t understand, conjugating verbs they don’t need and memorizing the thousand of exceptions of each grammar rule.

The truth is, you don’t need to know that much grammar to speak French with confidence.

You simply need to learn the 20% of grammar rules that will help you understand 80% of sentences.

You don’t need to know the list of all masculine and feminine words. You just need to know that the majority of words ending in -e or -ion are feminine while most other words are masculine.

You don’t need to learn how to conjugate 100 verbs in the present tense, you just need to learn a few conjugation patterns that apply to the vast majority of verbs.

If you do that, you won’t know all the details of French grammar. You will, however, be able to speak French without taking forever to construct a sentence.

The secret to quickly speaking and understanding French
The two mistakes you just discovered show that the key to quickly speaking French with confidence is to focus on what matters.

This may sound simple but most French courses try to teach you so much at once that you end up overwhelmed and frustrated by your inability to speak and understand French.

What you need to do is learn the most common French words first and focus on the grammar that you actually need to know.

You could do that on your own of course but knowing what truly matters when you don’t know the language isn’t exactly easy.

Sure, you could download a list of the most common French words but knowing words is not the same as speaking French.

You could search for the best “grammar hacks” but you’re not guaranteed to find anything. And again, how do you know you’re not wasting your time on useless grammar rules?

That’s why I created the French Together course.

Introducing: The French Together™ Course
The French Together course is the only French course teaching you the 20% of French you need to know to understand 80% of everyday conversations and quickly speak French with confidence.

After using the course, you will know exactly what to say to order a coffee like a local, book a table at a restaurant, have conversations with locals or buy a train ticket.

You will completely avoid the embarrassment of not understanding what people say and will be able to engage in meaningful exchanges with locals without feeling like a foreigner.

All of this with lessons you can easily fit into your day and will look forward to, even after a long day at work.

Simply open the course (interactive ebook) on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone/tablet, and click on the blue play button to get started.

Oh and don’t worry about recurring fees and annoying limitations. Just pay once and use the course forever on as many devices as you like.
