French from scratch!

Have you decided to learn French? French is spoken in over 43 countries around the world. It is considered by many to be the most beautiful language. Lingust gives you the opportunity to find out if this is true.

Specially for beginners, popular self-study lessons are prepared for English speakers in the form of online lessons. The first 12 lessons are focused on the rules of reading and pronunciation. It is important to master these lessons well, otherwise you will not be able to read properly, and perceiving the text by ear will be even more difficult, given the speed of the French speakers. After mastering these lessons, it will be one less problem to worry about, because, for example, in English, it is very difficult to correctly read the text without looking in the dictionary. Here you can learn how to read much faster, although it will be more difficult than, for example, in German, where you do not need to look in the dictionary for pronunciation at all, while in Chinese, it is necessary to consult the dictionary all the time... Sorry, we got a little distracted... :)

The next part will be 20 lessons on grammar and vocabulary, accompanied by quizzes to consolidate the material. All the lessons are suitable for both children and adults. Once you have mastered them, you will be able to communicate in French on everyday topics, read medium-level French texts, and get rid of the awkward feeling of being an outsider when you go on vacation to Paris or any French-speaking country without knowing the rules of linguistic behavior.

The exercises are accompanied by special input forms, and the answers to the exercises are located below the inputs, in the form of the key. In order to peep at an answer, hover over the key or press it with your finger (on mobiles): Ключ. Peeping at the answer is only allowed after you have completed the exercise. If there are any questions, you can ask them below the lesson in the form of a comment.
