Many French learners complain about their poor French-speaking skills. Unless you attend a professional French school that uses the communicative language teaching (have you read our post “Tips for finding the perfect French language school”?) you will probably feel that you are not speaking enough in French. Truth is, this is a common issue among language learners everywhere. Never-ending lessons monologue-type in which the students are mere spectators and are not properly encouraged to communicate. Constant repetition, textbook reading, homework and listening to the teacher are the main motto of this approach to teaching.
If that is your case, the first thing you need to do is to find a French language school student-oriented and with the right approach to language teaching. And still, your progress will be much more satisfactory and faster if you practice French also after class. To maximize your learning opportunities in French and making the most out of your time, try practicing these exercises at home or wherever you can. Include French in your daily routines and improve your French speaking skills!
