Having Trouble in French? Here are some tips to help you study. 1. Check the page for the unit you are struggling with to see if there are notes you can review. 2. Play review games on Quizlet or Quia. 3. Check the links page for some activities and sites that can help you review. 4. Make flashcards with English on one side and French on the other. Quiz yourself on the words. Start by looking at the French word and saying the English word. Then switch and look at the English word and try to say the French word. You can do this on the bus, in the car, or anytime you have a couple minutes of downtime. 5. Fold your vocab list in half and use it to quiz yourself, similar to what you would do with flashcards. 6. Look up the word in a dictionary and write it down. The more times you write it, the more likely you are to remember it. This is also a great way to practice spelling. 7. Write it 3 times, 5 times, 10 times... Write the word down and draw a picture to illustrate it. 8. Use the word in a sentence. 9. Create movements to help you remember the words. 10. Make a game out of studying or quizzing yourself. To make it even more interesting, play with a friend! Of course, always come see me if you're having trouble. I might have an extra trick to help you study, or maybe you need some one-on-one time to review something.
