How to overcome difficulties in learning French online?

Use your time wisely - make a plan

Have you ever spent a week learning intensively every day and then stopped and skipped your lessons for months on end? We recommend you study for just 10 minutes regularly every day to achieve the best results. That way you don’t have to make time for language learning in your schedule - you can fit it in anytime you have a few spare minutes - and you don't overload your brain with too much information. With just 10 minutes per day you can learn a new language without losing your motivation.

Don’t spend too much money

One month of online education costs less than a cinema ticket. Studying at traditional schools or with private tutors on the other hand can cost the same as a trip to a foreign country. Instead of going to a language school, why not learn online and save money towards your dream holiday? Paris, Brussels or Monaco - where do you want to go?

Personalise your lessons

Whether you’re learning a new language for business, travel or just to immerse yourself into a new culture, our French course is designed to help you learn based on your preferences and interests. We strive to make sure everything you learn is interesting and engaging.

Learn anytime, anywhere. Even offline

Take busuu with you and make use of any spare moments to keep learning. Queueing for a coffee? Waiting for a friend? Even on the journey to work - just download your lessons and learn with Offline Mode!
