The Best Way To Learn French In Calgary

There are over 260 million French speakers around the world over 5 continents. Additionally, French is recognised as at least one of the official languages in almost 70 countries around the world. French is also the foreign language that is the most commonly learnt around the world (after English). There's no doubt, French has a significant cultural and political influence around the world!

Despite being an official language of Canada, very few people speak French in Calgary. According to Calgary Census Information in 2016, 90.5% of the population speaks English, 0.1% speak only French, and only 7.3% speak both French and English. As Canadians, it's important that we become proficient in the French language, not only in Quebec but all over Canada!

Check out our most important reasons for learning French: 

French is the language of Culture 

The French language is rich in theatre, cinema, fashion, literature, visual arts, dance, architecture, cuisine just to name a few. By learning the French language, you'll have access to a world of culture in it's original text. Think of all the famous others such as Victor Hugo and Marcel Proust that you'll be able to read!

French can help you to learn other languages 

Given it's roots in Latin, French can also help you to learn other languages such as Spanish, Italian and Portuguese!

A great addition to your CV - and boosts your employability 

Many employees now seek candidates that are bilingual or are able to speak more than one language. Speaking French can be a great asset that will set you apart from other candidates. France is one of the biggest economies in the world, attracting entrepreneurs, researchers and foreign students to their universities. Speaking French can give you access to hundreds of multinational French firms in numerous sectors including luxury, aeronautics and engineering just to name a few!

Opportunities Abroad

By speaking another language such as French, this can open up a window of opportunities to work and travel to other countries around the world. Imagine being able to spend a year in Paris to perfect your French! You'll also be able to communicate with more people during your travels if you speak French.

Personal Development  

Learning a new language can really help you to grow as a person. It's a great way to improve your knowledge of culture, ideas, and history allowing you to be a more well-rounded and cultivated person in general.

Access to Education in France 

By learning French, you'll have access to some of the world's greatest education institutions including La Sorbonne, Sciences Po and Polytechnique. Often speaking a reasonable level of French is required to enter into these prestigious institutions. But at the end you'll come out with an excellent diploma renowned worldwide.

French is the language of International Relations 

French is considered as an official language of the United Nations, UNESCO, NATO, the European Union, and Red Cross International. French proficiency is absolutely essential for those seeking a career in international relations.

What is the best way to learn French?  

So now that you're convinced that you want to learn French, what's the best way to do so?

It's important to bear in mind that not everyone learns in exactly the same way. One methodology may be effective for some people, for others it may not work at all.

The first step in learning any language comes down to one thing: vocabulary. We suggest learning vocabulary, phrases  and expressions that you'll use in everyday life. You'll be able to find hundreds of resources on the internet or at your local library that will help you learn basic vocabulary. A great way to learn is by theme, so learning a different theme such as food, health, business, etc. By learning just 30 words a day,  you'll have covered 70% of the French language in the space of just 3 months! But learning is one thing and memorising is another... Don't forget to go back and revise words that you've already learned so that you don't forget them  as you go along.

Try to listen to the radio in French or tv shows in French in order to listen as much as possible and get used to the sonority of the language.

French grammar is well known to be quite complex! But have no fear, if you are consistent in your learning, do practice exercises and study regularly then there's nothing you can't do! Try to set fixed objectives and be consistent: commit to practicing or learning new vocabulary for even just 15 minutes every ay

Where Can I take French Classes in Calgary?

Learning French with a Private Tutor

One of the best ways to learn a language as quickly as possible is working one-on-one with a private tutor. In comparison to large Language classes, where you may not even get a chance to speak, with a private teacher you'll get one-on-one attention. This means that you'll be able to progress faster as you'll move through the curriculum quicker, be able to identify any difficulties or areas of weakness, and practice speaking with a fluent or native speaker!

By signing up on Superprof, you'll be able to connect with hundreds of French teachers in your local area.
