How to improve your French listening skills?
The world is such an amazing planet. Whenever we see outside our home, we see the people doing other things like going outside from their state to explore the cities while some people prefer to spend time in nature and talking with plants, trees and flowers. People have different choices as per their mood and nature. There is one thing which I personally like to do; that is Learning. Learning things like language, acquiring any technical knowledge etc increases our education.
People are learning languages like German, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Sanskrit, Hindi, Arabic etc. Let us talk about a language that’s primarily spoken in European countries and is an official language of France; French! Countries like Canada, Congo, Guinea etc are French-speaking countries. Another important thing that I want to share with you is that French follows CEFR rules. CEFR is Common European Framework of Reference. CEFR can help you officially validate your proficiency in the French language. So, while A1 is the easiest level, C2 is the toughest level.
People have different reasons to learn French. Some people claim to learn French so they can work with Multinational companies in located in Canada, Quebec, France (Paris) like Sopra, Steria, or other French-speaking countries etc while some people say that they wish to get admission in French universities, therefore, they are looking to learn French. The reasons may vary from person to person.
