"Sava", Como tulle vu! MY question is how do I actually get started with french? I just love the language, to even here it, or just know how to speak it.

Taking this course is an excellent way to begin learning the language. Remember also that it is a step by step process and our lessons move at a good steady pace. Also, listening to as much French as possible, whether you understand it or not can be as helpful as anything.

J'attends à voir vos progrès!

Just start with the lessons, little by little. One lesson every day.
Good luck! Bon courage !

salut tous le monde. I am so mad at myself for not studying this course . I stopped at least 6 months ago or more when I became discouraged. I was doing ok, but I don't have the confidence i need to speak. I have an american friend fluent in French but I am shy to speak french around him. I have to get over this if I ever want to learn French. merci.

Salut Gary,

That is one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to learning a foreign language, actually getting rid of those inhibitions that stop you just giving it a go. Don't be shy to speak because most people are more than willing to help you learn.

Keep it up!
