Learning a new language is a great challenge to set yourself. Did you know there are 220 million french speakers in the world? That is no reason to think of your new skill as a wasted and unoriginal one, think of it instead as a huge opportunity to connect with millions more people than you can right now! Even though other people might also speak French, it's best to be on par with them when looking for courses or jobs rather than see it as a waste of time. You might be a better communicator than others or you might yet another language or skill under your belt that makes you and your French-speaking skills all the more of a better package!
Regardless of your reasons for learning French, we can help you find classes and tutors specialising in the French language.
Not only does it broaden your work and travel prospects (there are so many countries that speak french, which is why there are so many French speakers globally), but it can also help you to better absorb new information. Experts suggest that individuals who speak more than one language are far better at focusing and often have great attention to detail.
Since most of us cannot simply pick up and immerse ourselves in French culture, however, hiring a French tutor might have to be the first step in learning the language. At least with the basics covered, you can be off to a good start when you do finally travel across the Channel. That said, immersion is one of the best ways to learn so if you can manage some time in the country then go ahead and say Au Revoir to Sheffield!
Learning a new foreign language is for life. Even years down the line, you will still be able to pick back up on your language skills so it's time well spent!
French is one of the most popular languages to learn in the UK, and most schools across England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland offer French to most secondary school students.
If you want to learn French and speak it fluently like a native speaker, improve your grades at school, or chat with some French speakers, you’ll have to attend French classes. Having a native speaker as your french tutor is great in the sense that you can learn from a true Frenchman or woman, however, a non-native tutor can still teach you French skills but using a more scholarly approach. We can't say which method is best - it all depends on what you are after and why you want to learn the language!
In Sheffield, there is a chance to learn French at universities and many colleges, but there's also a French society and a Language school offering services for novices.
The French language is spoken in France, Andorra, Seychelles, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and a number of African countries, however, there are different dialects in certain regions and the accents do vary quite greatly (just like in English speaking countries and regions, we suppose). There are 37 French-speaking countries in the world and 274 million speakers of the language. French culture is also one of the most famous in the world.
There are a lot of advantages to speaking any second language fluently, but French is a particularly good language to acquire for the workplace.
The second advantage is that knowing the French language can improve your career prospects, and opportunities to travel professionally too. In an increasingly globalised world, more and more businesses are looking for employees with language skills. What better way to get a job than to speak the language of our closest neighbours? Ideally, most businesses look for a B2 or C1 Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level.
Last, but certainly not least, speaking French enables you to communicate and male friends with people who you may not have had the chance to get to know otherwise. Your best friend or soul mate could be French and yet you may never discover your relationship without this shared knowledge!
There are a lot of jobs you can do with French: French teacher, French-English translator, working in tourism (in bars, restaurants, travel agencies, etc.), journalist, etc. We have already discovered that there are lots of French establishments in Belfast! French is much easier to learn than some other languages for English speakers.
A lot of English words are of French or Latin origin. This means that you'll recognise a lot of words once you get started with French lessons. You'll soon be able to form sentences and basic phrases. What you will need to watch out for is the gender of your nouns - but this is something that becomes more natural as you become more proficient (for example, it is hard at first to know that a table is feminine in French and that a glass tumbler is masculine as we aren't used to this in the English language!)
