Group instruction can be an exciting way to learn a new language. French is a language in which conversational nuances and pronunciations are so important, so being able to share your new knowledge with other students while practicing your new skills with them can make for a shared learning experience that is beneficial to all. Here are four benefits that group instruction can provide for those who want to learn French.
Develop confidence to use your new skills
Whether you plan to use your French learning conversationally or for writing later on, you will need to use these skills in front of other people. By practicing with the group, you can develop the confidence you need to use your French skills in front of other people, so that the transition is easier once you have to use it with a different audience.
Interactions that help you learn better
As with any group process, there is a lot of interactivity. People in your group may make mistakes you can learn from or may ask questions that will give you important information you can use to help further develop your skills. By working together on mini projects or homework, you are learning from each other in ways that have a better impact than mere textbook instruction.
Improve cultural sensitivity
Different people are interested in learning French for different reasons. It may be for a job requirement, in preparation for a trip overseas, or just for passion. Students who learn French tend to come from different cultural backgrounds, just like you would face in the real world while using your French skills. Learning to work with people from mixed backgrounds will give you the real world exposure you need to flex deeper language skills.
Recall complex concepts better
French can be a difficult language to learn because of all the different concepts to remember. You need to be able to remember how to pronounce accents correctly and recall complex grammar rules- all without breaking a sweat as you progress through the course. While a good teacher will certainly impart you with all the knowledge you need to learn the language well, your recall ability is improved by interacting with others while you learn it, rather than by just studying alone.
Get a head start on your French learning studies by working with a group for your course. Make the most out of your learning experience as you work with your peers, and you will soon be fluent with the language in any situation.
