Museum of Knowledge, Is it easy to Learn French blog 25082017

Museum of Knowledge guidelines: Is it easy to learn French?

Many language learners seek new ways to learn a language and often wonder if one language is easier to learn over and above another. Is it easier to learn French many students often ask us? The Museum of Knowledge response is that French is a very, very sharp and emphatic language. Many language learners may feel embarrassed speaking French because there is nowhere to hide if you get it wrong and there is so much emphasis on accentuation making it difficult to sound French if learners do not perfect this discipline.

French is very much focused on accentuation, precision and dynamism with nuances such as placement of accents making a huge difference as to how the language is pronounced. The correct pronunciation of French is an essential element that will set language learners apart and enable them to speak French like a native.

The key therefore to learning French is to practice and listen. Precision is the key to learning French and communicating with ease.

Museum Of Knowledge, Travel abroad or stay at home blog, 18082017

The Best Way to learn a language; travel abroad or learn at home?

The Museum of Knowledge team is often asked if students can really learn a language at home. How necessary is it to travel abroad? And will travelling abroad help linguists to perfect their skills? Our answer is simple. The best way to learn a language is to learn and understand language structure, grammar and syntax. The act of travelling abroad will not necessarily give students these basic and fundamental skills.

Learning a language with structured learning courses is the only way to truly learn and understand the language. The act of travelling abroad should help students to accentuate their key skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It should also enable students to put into practice the theoretical skills they have learnt in a classroom environment.

The key to learning a language is to have a good foundation and understanding of the structure of the target language and how it should be communicated. Even if students travel abroad and speak the language, this does not have the value of structured learning whereby grammar is the focal point of all language learning principles.




Museum of Knowledge blog, Is Learning French worth it 11082017

If English is so popular is it worth learning French?

English is of course one of the most important languages for commerce so students around the world will often embark on English language courses as a matter of course. There are of course many other languages the Museum of Knowledge considers beneficial.

There are many reasons why language learners choose to learn a language and in particular French. They may need to learn French for their studies or they may require good linguistic skills for commerce. Whatever the reason, the ability to converse well in various languages for various situations is important.

French is spoken in several countries around the world including the French Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe, Canada, France, and parts of Africa, Switzerland and Belgium. As a language spoken in so many diverse parts of the world, it is very useful to have these skills of French language competence as well as English. French is useful for commerce in some of the most industrialized and developed countries in the world and even if learning French is for pleasure there are plenty of popular holiday destinations that can justify the time and dedication required to learn French.
