Currently, I am studying French. It’s hard finding (free) ways of learning this languages online, because I’m not going to pay money for it! I’m currently using three main websites to help me learn. These three ways really work for me and my style of learning. However, I don’t think that these will work for everyone are everyone learns differently. Just for reference, I normally like to be able to hear things and say things to help remember them. I also like keep testing myself until I get it right as that’s, personally, the best way for it to embed into my brain. Ok so here are the three websites (click on the image to visit the website, it will open in a new tab)
Yes, the first one is good old bitesize. This is good for the basics as well as simple explanations for grammar rules. There are also some videos that really help you with your listening.
I love duo lingo because you can get it on your phone and it’s a really nice interface. It’s also not timed (unlike memrise) and is a testing app. The one thing that I don’t like though, is that on your phone app you don’t get explanations for grammar rules. This makes them almost impossible to learn. But the grammar explanations tend to be really good! Also, it has a speaking tool which is great as it means you actually speak the language.
I love memrise quite a lot as it works well for me. There are a lot of languages on there which is awesome! It uses really nice audio which really helps me learn. I like the steps it takes you to learning words and the phrases. However, I’m not so keen on the way that it’s timed because that really stressed me. But I think that it will be good exam practice for the future to have that time limit - it’s just not good when you aren’t taking an exam!
