I feel like I maybe should be studying French for the language course. Maybe. Instead I'm hanging out with my friends and my laptop! Hahah. To avoid school vibes, I tried to find alternative fun ways to learn a language.
Libraries often offer a good selection of books in different languages.
2. Listen to the radio
You can download Tune In radio for free on your smartphone. It's probably the best ever, because it has radio stations from all over the world! The pros of listening to the radio is that songs can be quite catchy with easy phrases and the presenters usually have an everyday chitchat going on - that is if they don't talk too fast.
3. Watch movies and TV series
Alternate putting on foreign subtitles with focusing listening to the spoken language.
4. Get someone to chat to
This is really effective when it comes to small, useful phrases. Sometimes when you study a language you might not even realise to learn (or you've already forgotten...) easy phrases like "Really? Tell me more!", "See you later!" or "Yeah, I agree"
5. Try creative writing
Especially if you are linguistically talented, try producing texts in other languages - it could be easier than you had expected when you get used to it! Stories, poems, blogging, keeping a diary... just to mention a few!
I am loving this book even though it's for kids! Really hope I wont be all like "pas d'argent" after some days in France...
