Are you trying to learn French? Every person has tried to learn French words at least once in their lifetime. Especially after watching some old French movie or visiting Paris. But it is all in the basics. To learn any language, one should start learning the basic words first and then move to more complicated terms.

Why learn French?

Many people fancy French as a beautiful language; some claim it is the language of love. Even if it is either of those, knowing more language can always be a flex. Knowing French adds extra points. Also, most people do not have time to watch elaborate French films to pick up the language on the way, or French people surrounding them to always converse. The most one needs them is to make small talk or understand the basics. This helps to express oneself better in certain situations. Also, if you live or work in France, it is always a good idea to learn French. It shows respect and love towards one’s language. Also, learning french not only means knowing the grammar right, but it also means broadening one’s vocabulary and understanding the culture from a completely different perspective.
