Hey UG, I'm having problem learning French right now. My reading and writing is okay (not great) and my listening and oral skills are horrible.

How do I improve fast?

Anyone want to help me over the net maybe?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

French toast.

french toast is the key, eat it as fast as you can by the truck load and you will be set in no time flat.

You don't.
Sorry to tell you.
"Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head;
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread."

Iunno about french.. but learning hindi was easier when you watch Hindi movies w/subtitles

Try watching movies you've already seen dubbed in french wi subtitles.

Watch your favourite movies and series in French.
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!

You clearly did not watch Dexters's Laboratory.

I think he meant he is a noob and he can't help.

he was owned either way


well i can speak french like a frenchman...ok a french kid! but it might be just because my teacher is kick ass and explains it well.. and she lived in france for like 5 years

go to about.com and look it up they have all kinds of stuff

and use flash cards for your verbs like etre, avoir and etc

watch movies and try to translate it.

i remember watching the Tarratata interview with RHCP and they had french subtitles so i learned some stuff from that.

Move to Montreal. Eat a lot of poutine... or just get a language learning software thing.

Do like they did on Eurotrip.

Have some dominatrix start beating the **** out of you, and threatening to violate you with a large mechanical device, and she will write down a complicated, French safety word, and when you say it, she will stop, and then, of course, tell you the meaning os said word and give you some worksheets to do at home.

You just have to get into it. Talk french with people more often, and watch french tv (its pretty bad though) and stuff like that. Just get involved with it more.

Take lessons and get a tutor? Short of going to France, nothing else will do much good quickly.

Here's an amazing site that you can use. We use the German equivalent all the time. If anything, it'll get you on the right track. It's free too!

http://www.learner.org/resources/series83.html

It's not going to be easy though; the whole basis of this site is full immersion. Be ready.
