So what is this course all about? It consists of “Why French Is Easy” eBook + 2 bonuses that I’ll describe further. But now I will explain what the content of the eBook is and how it will help you to learn French quickly.
This is what Benny says about his course:
Part One – Getting the Right Mindset
In part one Benny explains you the right mindset of learning French. I have found out that a language learning depends on 80% psychology and only 20% good techniques. That’s why this part is so important. Benny tells his story and how he first struggled with French.
French was Benny’s third foreign language that he learned after Spanish and Italian. He mentions that surprisingly Spanish and French were much harder for him than Chinese or Hungarian, for example. Benny didn’t have a right mindset at the beginning which kept holding him back. But then he learned realized how to learn French easily and quickly which allowed him to become a fluent speaker and a professional French translator.
Part Two – Speaking Hacks
In the second part, Benny focuses on French speaking. In my experience, this is the part where people have the most excuses, “The pronunciation is so hard. They speak so fast… Etc.” This section will give you great tools how you can become a fluent speaker in French. It will also give some language hacks and tips how to master French pronunciation.
Even though I started studying French for the first time almost two years ago, I still learned many new ideas from this part. One interesting thing is that French pronunciation is much easier and more straightforward than English pronunciation. Think about, for example, the pronunciation of “ough” in the following words: though, through, plough and cough. It’s always pronounced in a little bit different way.
There is no that kind of exceptions in French pronunciation because it’s more logical than English. I was very surprised to realize how easy and straightforward French pronunciation is. Even though I have studied French, nobody has ever told me those helpful language hacks that Benny wrote in his book. He is the most famous language guru and not without reason.
He has used lots of time to gather all this information so we can save lots of time when learning French.
Part Three – French Grammar Hacks
In this part, Benny goes through how to understand French grammar more quickly. When should you choose masculine or feminine? How adjectives and the past tense work? There are also little tricks for remembering subjunctive and how to use helper verbs like aller, voulouir and devoir.
If you have struggled with structuring sentences, this part can help you a bit. Structuring a sentence in French isn’t so hard than one may think. Many times you just flip two words around and it becomes a question. For example, ”You can help me” (Vous pouvez m’aider) becomes a question “Can you help me?” (Pouvez-vous m’aider?) Did you notice that Vous pouvez only became Pouvez-vouz. Nothing complicated there. Lewis also goes through another type of questions and how to structure them.
Part Four – Words
This is the most fun part. Did you know that English and French have about 70% of their vocabulary in common? So without ever studying a day of French, you may already be able to read some French texts. Think about these sentences for example:
L’hôtel est moderne
L’animal descende du train
You don’t need translation for those sentences if can already read English. In this chapter, Benny will also give two important tips to learn new vocabulary which is not similar to English (or to another language that you have already mastered).
The Purpose of His Book
“Rather than approaching French learning in a course format, this book examines the hardest parts of the language that many learners struggle with and presents each in a fresh, new, and easy to swallow manner.”
Benny’s goal is that you will be able to speak French fluently and with confident after a few months of reading his book. If you have been afraid of French pronunciation, grammar or vocabulary, you should get Benny’s book.
After going through Benny’s language hacks and tips, I am sure that you will not be so afraid anymore. You will realize that French is quite easy. If you still think that French is hard, I challenge you to read this book. I am sure that your opinion will change.
