    Default Help to learn French

    Hi everyone! First of all, I need to say that I am a complete beginner in this, I don't know a single word of French.. Well, yet! I'm off to university next year, and I want to study French. I know that this might sound weird, me wanting to study French without knowing a single word, but the thing is that I will be learning English, and I have to choose another language, and I chose French over Russian.

    I already speak English, Italian, Spanish, and my language, Serbian.. Learning new languages does not seem to difficult to me, so I am asking you to give me some tips.

    I learned Spanish on my own, watching movies, listening to music, the internet helped me a lot too.. So, the question is, what tips can you give me? What do you think that I should do in order to learn at least the basics of this beautiful language?

    Do you know some good french movies, music, some sites that could help me learn??

    Thank you all in advance! Merci beaucoup!

    If you already speak italian and spanish, then it won't be very difficult as it's very similar sometimes.

    Astraea links are great to start.
    If you want to watch some good movies or french videos then look at those links :

    Un gars une fille (short comedy)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb1Dhcm4izs

    Plus belle la vie (Série)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOLdYmZyjEQ

    Asterix et Obelix mission Cléopâtre (French movie )
