On the other hand, we have found that learning French in France is generally easier for people who are beginners in this language, and it usually recommended taking a course in northern France.

The French language

French Dialects

The European French can be divided into two linguistic groups: The southern French the langues d'oc, and in the northern French version spoken also in and in Belgium the langues d'oil. Both are considered by many linguists as a different language because each one of them has developed different dialects. If you are still a beginner in the French language, we recommend you taking a French course in northern France. In Switzerland, learning French is also relatively easy because the local variant is very similar to the standard French. However, you will notice differences in vocabulary, which are partly due to Germanisms. For example, in Switzerland it is said instead of père and mère, vattre and mouttre.

But French is not only spoken in Europe, but also in the rest of the continents of the world. Especially in Canada in the province of Québec, where it is the mother tongue. In this French variant, you will find significant differences with European French, especially in vocabulary and syntax of the sentences.

The formation of numbers up to 100 in French

In language learning, numbers play an important role and are one of the first things that are taught during your language courses. Making easier for you to say your age, give your phone number or understand the opening hours of companies or stores. When you start learning French, number formation could be considered a bit confusing, down below you will find a table where you could learn and practice them:

The numbers from 1 to 16 have to be memorized, but the numbers 17 to 19 follow a pattern. 10-07, 10-08, 10-09

seventysoixantehundredcent

For the numbers after 70, you must follow another rule to its proper formation. Combinations of known numbers are used, to form them. For example, to form the number 70 it is necessary to combine "sixty (plus) ten", for 80, "four (times) twenty" and for 90, "four (times) twenty (plus) ten".

As you can see, you need a little time and practice to get used to the numbers. In our French courses, your teacher will help you understand and learn the formation of numbers with ease and practical exercises. During your free time, you would be able to practice during your daily routines, considering that the numbers are going to be necessary for all kinds of situations.

French Subjunctive: le Subjonctif

If you belong to the group of more advanced students of the French language, you will surely have heard of the Subjonctif . It is a tense that usually presents difficulties for new students, in terms of its application, and finding the right situation for its proper use. That is why we have created a list of examples where the subjunctive should be used.

Expressions of personal qualification:


FrenchEnglish
admirer queto admire
détester queto hate
être content(e)que  to be happy
être triste queto be sad
trouver bête queconsider something silly
trouver drôle queconsider something funny
il est rare quesomething is weird

Expressions of will:

FrenchEnglish
vouloir queto admire
attendre que  to hate
interdire que  to be happy
il fautto be sad

Conjunctions:

FrenchEnglish
pour queso that
avant que  before de
bien quealthough, though
sans quewithout

Some rules can be applied for the use of the Subjonctif . In the practice, however, it is often not so easy to remember which rule applies to each verb. That's why we recommend using the Subjonctif whenever you can, during your French course with your classmates and outside the school. Remember, the best way to improve your French is to use it during your spare time with native speakers after your language course.
