How (and Why) Lingvist’s French Course Works

More than Just Memorization

Rather than memorization methods that “trick” your brain into cataloguing a dictionary-like list of French words and their translations, Lingvist uses in-context vocabulary building coupled with perfectly timed spaced repetition to help you memorize words more naturally.

Listen Up

Reading French is the easy part! French pronunciation is notoriously divergent from the written form, which means listening comprehension practice is critical to being able to actually use the language. Hook up your headphones to develop your listening skills with native speakers on your schedule.

Speak Up

Did you know that French has 10 sounds not present in English? From nasal vowels, to the guttural “R,” to special liaisons between letters, speaking French requires the development of new muscle memory for your mouth and tongue. It takes a lot of practice to associate new pronunciation rules with all those letters you know and love. Get instant feedback on your pronunciation using voice input technology.

Keep Track of Your Stats

Maintain motivation by tracking your improvement! Lingvist provides information on how well you’re recalling words during each study period or over time. Feel proud of your progress by seeing how many words you’ve learned and work to retain your recall rate by reviewing words you’ve learned in the past.

How to Make the Most of Your French Course

The only secret to learning a language is maintaining motivation. This is the key factor in helping you devote the time necessary! Everyone has a unique learning style and different reasons for learning a language, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Using a mixture of the tools available to you through your Lingvist account will ensure you can stay interested and reach your goals.

Make a Daily Habit

Your time may be limited, but with Lingvist your learning potential is unlimited! Whether it’s while you have your morning coffee, during your commute, or while dinner’s cooking, find a time to practice French 20 minutes per day and you will be amazed by the results within a few months.

Immerse Yourself

Re-creating an immersive environment in your home is the next best thing to spending time in a French-speaking country. Get in the habit of turning on French radio in your home, listening to French podcasts during your commute, watching French movies, or trying to use recipes in French. Take it a step further and pick specific concepts introduced by your Lingvist decks to focus on a week at a time to enhance your passive language absorption.

L’amour of Learning

Everyone experiences dips in motivation, but identifying what you love about learning a language, like being able to discover new movies or music from a different culture, will go a long way toward keeping you on track. Take time to fall in love with French by taking a break from grammar drills and reading some fun blog posts, like this one on local sayings from French-speaking countries.
