Why You Are Not Making Progress in French?
3 Potential Reasons and How to Overcome Them
Struggling to make progress in French?
In this article, we will explore three potential reasons why you may be facing this challenge and provide you with some practical tips to overcome them.
The learning content doesn’t suit your needs and goals.
If you’re not making progress in French, it could be because the content you’re using isn’t tailored to your specific needs. Traditional courses may not cover the vocabulary and conversations you want or need because the content is standardized.
This can make you feel like you’re stagnating because what you’re learning is not useful to you in your French communications.
You have little contact with French.
Whether in your family, personal or professional environment, you have little opportunity to be in contact with French. Limited exposure to the language can also be a hindrance to progress.
If you don’t adapt your learning strategy to this context, it will inevitably have an impact on the effectiveness of your learning.
To overcome this challenge, you need to set up a strategy to increase your contact with the language.
As a suggestion, you can read articles about how to practice French alone , use French songs in your learning routine or also about how to integrate implicite learning into your French strategy.
The teaching style doesn’t suit your way of learning.
A third potential reason why you may not be making progress in French is that the teaching style you have been using does not suit you. What you learn in the classroom or in books may not be adapted to your personal way of organizing knowledge. This can make you feel out of step and disconnected.
To overcome this challenge, you can try different learning methods and strategies that suit your personal learning style. For instance, the Neurolanguage coaching® method respects the specificity and unique needs of each learner.
This method is particularly adapter for learners with attention deficit disorders.
But also for people who have a high need for autonomy, safe learning environment or meaningful topics.
Making progress in French can be challenging, but it’s important to stay motivated and not give up. By addressing the common reasons outlined in this article and taking proactive steps you can make progress more effectively.
