Lived in France and francophone Belgium for two years. Fully fluent (oral and written). Fine arts student.

Methodology

Anything you learn needs to be exciting and applicable. Using the French language to describe things that matter to you right now is paramount. I believe in physical learning, for example, if you are learning about different directions, (gauche, droite, etc) actually standing up and turning or walking as the words indicate helps ingrain the language into the body and mind.

A balanced approach using 5 main methods.
1. Grammar study
2. Speaking
3. Listening (comprehension)
4. Reading
5. Writing
All are needed to master a language, I believe.

Background

I am a musical theatre student who put his studies on hold to give two years of voluntary service in France and francophone Belgium. I was fully immersed in the language and culture, I had thousands of hours of direct contact with native speakers from several different regions (those different accents can be tricky). I love the language, the culture, the people. I still have many friends and contacts in France and Belgium.
