Repeated listening & reading
Do you feel like learning French at school was boring? You are not alone.
Felix felt exactly this way when he had to learn English at school. He didn’t like “memorizing words, studying grammar, doing worksheets and taking tests.” Felix is a 41-year-old Taiwanese man with a high school education, who currently works in the construction industry in Taipei, Taiwan.
Ken Smith relates Felix’ story in this fascinating article.
Although Felix had lost interest in learning English at school, he then tried a different approach later on in his life: “one in which he combined something that he loved, baseball, and something he felt was important, acquiring English. He listened to the broadcasts of Major League Baseball.”
Dr. Krashen (1996) explains what Felix experienced in a paper titled “The Case For Narrow Listening”: “Repeated listening, interest in the topic, and familiar context help make the input comprehensible”.
Just showing up for yourself everyday (or regularly) and listening to interesting and comprehensible content in French will enable you to communicate freely in French as it was the case for Felix.
