Week 3: What does learning French involve?
Welcome to Week 3! Last week you found that you probably already know a few French words, and can recognise others if your own language is another European language. You learned that as a language learner you can develop strategies for understanding, such as looking out for loan words and cognates, using logic and deduction, and using context to figure out what somebody is talking about.
This week, you will continue exploring what learning French will be like. There is much more to it than just learning words. Through this week’s activities you will get an overview of the different aspects of language learning, from recognising sounds to understanding culture and developing transferable skills.
