Frequently asked questions
When you start learning with Lingoda, you’ll start covering the important topics from the very beginning. We’ll cover adjectives, prepositions, pronouns, articles and tenses with interactive methods and engaging activities. Your native-level teacher will guide you through these tasks, and the interaction will keep you engaged, letting the knowledge sink in as you deepen your understanding.
Obviously, the level and depth of the grammar covered depend heavily on the course you select. Our syllabus is aligned with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) starting at A1 for beginners moving through to C2 which is considered native-level, or fluent. If you’re not sure which category you fall under, you can take our short test once registered. In a few short questions, we’ll analyze your current ability and suggest which course is right for you.
At an A1 level you can expect to cover the masculine and feminine – in French these then change the definitive article and how an adjective must match the gender of the noun. As you advance through the course you’ll pick about French grammar, tackling complex sentence structure and more.
Your teacher will be there at every stage to help, correcting your grammar in conversation, written exercises and throughout the class. You’ll be encouraged to speak, read and engage with the class at all times so you can start practicing from the very first lesson.
When you learn with Lingoda, your lessons will incorporate grammar at all times. In that way, you won’t be sitting through a specific hour-long lesson on French grammar, instead, you will cover it a little at a time. You can also use the course material to recap any new bits of grammar that you’ve learned.
Understanding French grammar is vital to speaking the language fluently. French grammar is notoriously difficult so it’s important to get a handle on it. With Lingoda lessons, we’ll give you settings and scenarios where you can start applying your new knowledge.
You’ll cover grammar in every class in some form, but the depth depends on the level of your course. You’ll learn French grammar at a pace that suits you, with our native-level teachers.
Lingoda will help you learn French grammar with fun, interactive activities, but also with real-life situations so you can start practicing straight away. We want to help you make sense of French grammar and how you can use it in daily life.
It’s no good memorizing a load of rules (and there are quite a lot in French grammar)! You should start interacting and practicing your work straight away. Our native-level French teachers are there to guide you through the exercises, but also to encourage you to speak and interact with other students.
To see improvement, make sure you’re using your French skills between classes. Find somebody to speak French with, read a French book, or stick to French subtitles as you watch a film. You’ll be amazed how much you can learn, and fast!
We know how important grammar is, so it will be covered at every stage of your learning with Lingoda, but we don’t devote set hours to it. Instead, your classes will be full of speaking, listening, grammar, conversation skills and writing. We have knit the skills together in one cohesive syllabus because there’s no use learning one without the other.
To make the grammar make sense, we create real-life situations that you can engage with, so you can work the grammar out in real-time. By teaching grammar within the context of everyday interactions, you’ll get a better grasp of the rules.
With each lesson, your native-level teacher will encourage you to practice these rules aloud. You can always ask your teacher questions too, as well as receive personalized feedback through the class. If there’s something that you struggle with, make a note and remember to ask your teacher. They will be more than happy to help you understand.
Like any language, understanding grammar is vital. If you want to speak fluently, you don’t want to be searching for words or using the incorrect tense. Of course, vocabulary is also important, but without understanding the grammar you won’t know how to use your impressive words!
Once you’ve got a strong grasp of French grammar, you’ll be able to enjoy the fun bits that come with learning a language – whether that’s watching a French film, traveling the country freely, or speaking fluently with a friend or colleague. Imagine that learning the grammar is part of your training, and speaking the language is playing the game!
Lots of people suggest shortcuts to learning French – like listening to French podcasts or reading French books. These are all useful, but the best way to improve your French quickly is to start putting your skills to good use. Speak French little and often, and start using the grammar you’ve learned with Lingoda every day to see great results.
One of the reasons we keep the class sizes small is to ensure that our native-level teachers can correct your mistakes in real-time. You’ll receive personalized feedback to ensure you aren’t forming bad habits.
Our teachers will always correct you in a gentle and friendly manner. You also get to hear the mistakes and corrections of other students – another positive for group learning.
