What are the Benefits of reading in French ?
Here at French Lessons Brisbane, we’re big believers in reading! Whether it be reading an article, reading a story in your textbook, or even reading a French menu, anything and everything helps! In order to make some progress, our top tip would be to read some French for just 15 minutes per day.
So why should I read in French?
1. Reading is fun!
Reading is something most of you already enjoy doing, but what about transforming this hobby into a learning tool. There are tons of resources online from magazines to newspapers and blogs, so no matter what your passions are we are sure you can find some useful reading materials in French!
2. Improve your writing skills
Immersing yourself in French writing will enable you to imitate their styles and implement them into your own writing. The more you read, the more you will see the same vocabulary over and over again, which is guaranteed to help you memorise those tricky words, and get that sentence structure down pat!
3. Builds vocabulary in a context
French, like English has a lot of vocab, with different meanings dependent on their context or phrase. Reading an article will add the context you sometimes need to fully grasp an idea! As well as this, your brain will start to become accustomed the nuances of the French language and you won’t even notice when you begin to slip these into your language!
