In Ghana, a growing number of people including students are now learning French for a variety of reasons—some for personal purpose, for financial freedom, for traveling and some for job market.
Through my personal research, I discovered 4 important qualities that are vital for students and individuals to master the French language.
● Motivation. You need a reason to pursue your goal. Students with high motivation generally do best.
● Humility. Don’t expect too much of yourself—mistakes are inevitable, especially at first. You’re just like a child learning to walk. Often you stumble, but you just have to get up and try again.
● Patience. “For me, the first two years for learning French were difficult and at times I felt like giving up,” admits David a friend of mine. Still, he acknowledges: “It gets easier!” I felt much the same way when I was learning the English language. You don’t think you’ve made progress until you look back.
● Practice. A regular routine will help you to become fluent in the new language. Try to practice every day, even if it’s for just a few minutes.
