I am a gamer, programmer, and a wannabe linguist who is fluent in English and Mandarin, and proficient in French.

I am an achievement hunter. Come and visit me on trueachievements.com

I am also an administrator on Wiktionary and have been for over 3 years. I edit mostly in French, Dutch, English and Mandarin, but I also dabble in Italian, Japanese, Maori and Swedish. We are constantly looking for competent volunteers/lexicographers to contribute to this wonderful multilingual dictionary website.

comment Learning french from beginning to end
1) Read. 2) Listen. 3) Repeat 1 and 2 over and over again with consistency for at least 3-5 years, that is, if you don't have the option to move to a French speaking region. If you are a competent writer in your primary language, then you are unlikely to become a bad one in French. Writing comes naturally with reading comprehension and speaking comes naturally with listening comprehension. That's how I learnt French by myself from scratch.
