So, what is the one thing you always wanted to do?

Let me guess – to speak French fluently. : )

Chances are it’s pretty hard to accomplish, no?

The hardest part to beginning anything new is… beginning!

There’s good news though, there’s some real fool-proof ways to get around that tough starting point.

So, have you ever done something without thinking?

What a question, no?

We all have, life sometimes catches us off guard.

If only there was a way for us to catch ourselves before we react to think!

You may be surprised, but thinking too much actually stays in the way of good conversational skills. Especially in another language.

Be sure to check out the article below for some insight into how thoughts undermine your French conversation, and watch the video for some French worth thinking about!

So, did you always want to speak French, but somehow work and family got in the way, and you didn’t follow your heart?

I was about to tell you some of my stories when I wasn’t ready to take a leap of faith. From my son who came into my life without asking for permission, to my immigration adventure that was an out-of-body experience – I wasn’t ready.

But you and I both know that with some of the BEST things in life, you can’t control the timing.

In fact, amazing opportunities often show up way before we think we’re ready.

Read the article below, to find out from Aaron how you too can follow your heart, and watch the video for some French worth following!

How long have you been learning French for?

When you answer this question for yourself, you have to be very clear on the level and proficiency you are aiming for.

Is writing and watching movies enough for you? Need to take a test? Want to converse with the natives?

Let me start with a story…

So, are you stuck in a rut, and can’t seem to find your way to get excited again about practicing your French?

I know how it feels, I learn Italian, Spanish and German right now, and sometimes I’d like to take a looong break.

There is a way, however, to get back the excitement. A 15 minute break, but a high quality break.

It is a great way to balance yourself out, but you know that taking some time to reflect and reevaluate things can have some of the same benefits?

The perspective you can gain from looking back with 20/20 vision can really strengthen you in more ways than you can imagine!

Check out the article below for some more insights for when you find yourself stuck in a rut, and watch the video for some French worth reflecting upon!

So, have you tried to learn French from zero, and were tempted to give up halfway through?

Not very easy to start from the bottom again, is it?

That’s why most of us are resistant to the change that comes from learning – French included – even when we desire that change a lot. It’s like somehow we don’t recognize ourself anymore, and we go back to who we were before the attempt.

It’s scary to feel empty again, trying to fill yourself up – but everyone needs a clean slate sometimes.

So, are the French genders hard for you?

Do you always guess, and most of the times you don’t get it right?

Genders seem to be a very popular topic among francophiles.

In English, nouns don’t have genders, so it may be difficult to adjust to the French way.

However, if you think that German and Latin have 3 genders, you may feel a little better.

Here is my video answer to the number one concern of one of the members of my conversation Facebook group: “My number one frustration while learning French is how every noun has a gender. How can one remember the gender of every noun. It is something very difficult for me.”

So, do you love sitting?

It really is just great to lay around and be lazy, while practicing your French, no?

Well as relaxing as it can be to… relax, too much sitting can be disastrous for your health!

From heart problems to muscle loss, the side effects to too much sitting around aren’t very pretty.

It can also get boring to sit for too long, which could become the reason why you don’t practice your French enough.

Check out the article below for some tips on how to stay on your feet some more, and still practice your French, and be sure to watch the video for some French you can sit down for!

So, are you planning to use French in your business?

Do you need to know how much time and resources you need to budget to make it happen?

You’re in luck, Sylphie asked me this on Quora today:

“What’s the best way to get to a business-fluent level of French from an intermediate-advanced level, and about how long might it take?”
And I thought that you’d be curious to know my answer.

Of course, results vary based on the actual knowledge and conversation level of the intermediate francophone, as well as on the time commitment during the process.

But, taking all the variables into account, and trying in the same time to be general enough so that most people can relate and be helped by my answer, here is my opinion.
