Are you learning French? Over 30 years ago I moved to France with only a basic knowledge of the language and yet was fluent within 6 months!

There are a few strategies I recommend to help master learning French.

  1. Learn some basic vocabulary to provide the basis upon which to build your language skills.
  2. Watch French TV series and movies (in French with subtitles). It is amazing how much you will learn. It is also a great introduction to French culture.
  3. Practice – I learnt through complete immersion. Try a language learning programme such as Rosetta Stone or Berlitz.
  4. Move to France!

In this article, you will learn some basic vocabulary for shopping such as the names of shops and some of the items you may wish to buy when shopping in France!
