What should I focus on when learning French ?

I'm going to start learning french on my own soon, but I admit that I'm afraid of failing or facing difficulties. I don't know from where I should start or how to memorize things . If you have any tips/ or advice please share.

Thanks in advance .

Remember this when you start learning: it doesn't matter if you aren't fluent within a day! You are allowed to make mistakes. Just choose small goals for each day, and actually start spending at least a few minutes a day learning the language. Keep it fun!


Another idea: stick notes on everything in your house with the French names on them.


And this: make a list of useful words and sentences (the basics) and learn a few of them each day. Try speaking out loud (when you're alone) and describe what you are doing.


Try watching movies/tv shows you know very well in French to get used to the sounds. Try repeating some of the words.


The best advice I can give you is on this website: fluentin3months.com. That guy is awesome! On the website he gives a lot of useful tips that have really helped me out.


I hope this helps!

I'd just like repeat again this tip, it's very helpful. I'm using this one it makes me learning with ease vocabulary because that are things that i use all days. So i memorise this automatically. It's a good idea :)

I don't know if you enjoy it but you can try Disney movies in french language with english dubs. 
 If there is something i understand to learn a language it's listen and listen and listen. 

Hoping it helps you.

i think it's not very difficult, it depends your level in french, if you can undersand some words you should listen and listen lot of podcast wich they speak a correct french

otherwise, you need to learn basic language and after practice it.........

for me,  english is my third language, and my level is not bad but i must speak speak more and everyday i learn new words, sentences..........
