So, here are the top 3 French learning fears according to our listeners.

And we’re killing all 3 of these fears just in time for Halloween.

1. “I’m not good enough to start speaking yet.”
If not now, then when? Some day? Most learners are good at reading and writing but not speaking. Why? Because that’s all they focus on and ignore speaking. So the best way to speak better French is to start speaking from day one. And if you still think you’re not good enough, our lessons give you the exact phrases and scripts to use in conversation.

2. “I’m afraid I’ll never be fluent.”
Fluent is a very vague, distant goal and focusing on it will set you up for failure. But, if you aim for small goals like 5 minutes of French conversation this month, then aim for 10 minutes next month, you’ll soon be speaking French with confidence. Fluency is a big vague goal. Small, measurable goals are not. You’ll know when you’ve reached them. You see your improvement. And best of all, these small goals will add up.

3. “I’m afraid that I’m not making any progress.”
There are two things you can do right now. First, use the Dashboard to track your progress. Our Dashboard shows how much you’ve accomplished based on the French lessons you’ve completed. Second, try a harder lesson. You might not understand it, but you will in minutes. The lessons come with translations. The lesson hosts explain everything. THEN, you’ll be making progress because you now understand something you didn’t minutes ago.

And if you want to start mastering French with effective lessons, tools, apps and more… take advantage of the Monster-Sized Sale ‘til October 31st, 2014!
