French (le français) is a Romance language of the Indo-European family. It descended from the Vulgar Latin of the Roman Empire, as did all Romance languages. French is estimated to have about 76 million native speakers, and another 77 to 110 million secondary speakers who speak it as a second language to varying degrees of proficiency, mainly in Africa. According to a demographic projection led by the Université Laval and the Réseau Démographie de l'Agence universitaire de la francophonie, the total number of French speakers will reach approximately 500 million in 2025 and 650 million by 2050.

How Long Does It Take to Master French? 

In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple days in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken French more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.

Is It Possible to Master It Faster?

With time and motivation you can master French faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in French will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in French.

Does Your Mother-Tongue Affect Your Mastery of French?

If you speak Portuguese or Spanish or one of these languages is your mother-tongue, you will learn French easier and faster. People proficient in Romance languages will see similarities with the French grammar system and words loaned from these languages.

Some important tips in order to master French faster:

  • Learn each new word in the context it is used in.
  • Repeat what you have learned often because repetition is the mother of learning;
  • Use both real and virtual French language domain;
  • Use the media (TV, radio, music, literature, social media platforms) in French;
  • Read fiction in French, start with easy French;
  • Let yourself make mistakes, use the language, jump in the French language river for a swim! You can do it!
