132 Million people are learning French as you read these lines
This is the Official Number from the O.I.F (Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie)
This is roughly the cumulated population of Spain & Germany…or twice the population of France.
A Huge Number, indeed 🤯
Yet, the story does not tell how many of these motivated learners will reach the Final stage : Fluency.
In reality…a small fraction.
Because, there are many hurdles on the journey.
Time, the kids, the job, life, “French is difficult”, « I’m too old »…
just like in any other activity, reaching the Top requires a high level of dedication.
Dedication is Not Enough
..and here’s a True Story..
I remember, as a student, having to re-pass a computer programming test….
What’s the connection with learning French? Keep on reading please.
I’m talking about a very popular programming language : C-Language.
Excuse my French, but I simply sucked at C-language.
I sucked so bad that even after one month reading books, (re-)doing exercises and trying to understand, I ended up with an even lower grade at the second examination !!!
Respectively (7/20 the first time and 5/20 the second time). And yes…you read that right. Grades are really « out of twenty« …
Did I ever come back to C-Language after this experience and prove to myself and to the World that I could code ?
I ran as fast as I could from this Language...
You see, sometimes there are some specific things you just can’t seem to comprehend.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Some topics are extremely easy to catch and use and… for other topics…there’s a Bug in the Machine.
The Moral of The Story
This episode story means a lot.
With insight, I understood that to be become quickly proficient in new skills, there’s a fundamental ingredient that can’t be overlooked.
Without this key component, trying to master new skills can turn out to be as desastrous as a transplant rejection.
Your System will fight as hard as possible to Reject the Information, resulting in very low sucess chances in spite of strenuous efforts.
And The Key Factor Is
Let’s Fast rewind a little.
In the C-Language example, contrary to 98% of the other students
- I Didn’t See Myself as a comptuer coder
- and in the back of my Mind was this persistant question: « Will I Ever Need That ?!«
Enough of me and Fast Forward to You now.
I guess you did have previous exposure to French. You might even have been doing very well, right ?
