Why is French so Hard to Learn?
Maybe you tried to learn French in the past. You learned the basic words, maybe some grammar, and it felt like you were making progress.
They say that French is one of the easiest languages for English speakers to learn, but if it’s so easy, then why is it that most learners never become fluent?
The issue is that most language learners focus on stuff that doesn't really matter at the beginning. They’ll go way too deep into pronunciation or really focus on lists of numbers, colors, the alphabet, and that kind of stuff.
It’s true! I never start learning languages from the alphabet. You don’t need to either – I give you permission!
But this is the way most language courses work. And obviously, it's important to know all those things at some point.
It’s like building a fancy house without a foundation. Eventually, it’s going to collapse and you need to start all over again.
When that happens, students get demotivated and give up!
That’s why I learn languages like I play chess.
Yes, no joke!
You can use this approach too, and the best thing is it works 100% from home.
In fact, I believe that it’s possible to learn to have a basic conversation in any language within just 24 hours.
Yes, 24 hours!
You probably think I’m kidding...
But I can guarantee it’s possible because I do this all the time on my YouTube channel
And trust me, I was definitely not the smartest kid in the class.
So what’s the secret?
Hi, I'm Arieh!
My real name is Arieh, but most people know me as Xiaoma. I run the popular YouTube channel Xiaomanyc.
Tens of millions of people watch my videos every month and see how I make connections with people from all kinds of backgrounds, by speaking to them in their language.
I’ve studied over 15 foreign languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Korean, French, Wolof, Maya, Italian, Indonesian, Navajo, Hindi, Punjabi, and Tibetan.
People always ask me how I do it. I get emails literally every day!
With my chess game approach, I managed to hold conversations in all these languages after just a few weeks of studying.
Over 5000 students from thousands of students from all over the world have joined and picked up a new language with my Street-Smart language courses.
I understand that learning a language can be really boring and difficult because that’s how I experienced it at school.
That’s why I thought it was time to make language courses more practical for the real world!
The Magic of my “Chess Game'' Approach
Chess players usually start the game with standard openings, like moving the pawn from E2 to E4. Then you know that you need to follow up with the Sicilian Defense. Then there are all kinds of standard responses, and that's because those are generally recognized as the best and most common moves.
And the more you play the game, the better you have those opening moves memorized. As the game gets more complex, your skills get tested more and more by all these variants.
Do you see the similarities between playing chess and learning languages?
That’s why I always focus on the ‘’opening moves’’ at the beginning.
Once you can ‘’open’’ a conversation and start speaking, you have a foundation that you can start building on.
Start with practical phrases like ‘’do you speak French?’’ or ‘’I’m learning French’’. The fancy stuff will follow later.
With this approach, you can speak a new language from the very beginning. This will give you the momentum you need to become fluent.

''Taking this class in retirement was one of the best things I ever did! The class was so much fun and it was made easily understandable. And it gave us the "opening chess moves" to start a conversation. I loved every minute of it and learned so much!''
Diane - USA
What is so Special about this Course?
Here’s why students are calling my Street-Smart courses the best all-around package for beginners:
✔ Focus on Real-Life Situations
When you start speaking French with somebody, they will always ask you the same questions:
- How come you speak French?
- Where are you from?
- Do you live here?
We’ll focus on the words, phrases, and sentence structures that you need for your first conversations in French in practical real-life situations.
Think about situations like:
- Ordering in a restaurant
- Going to the airport
- Interacting in a bar
- Haggling at the market
- Communicating at a bakery
We learn grammar naturally as it comes up in the dialogues, not by memorizing a list of points.
✔ Make Sentences from Day One
We don’t just teach you a bunch of phrases that you need to learn by heart. You will learn patterns of speech so that you can make your own sentences in French and say whatever you want.
You don’t need any prior experience!
✔ Elisa will Be Your Personal Virtual Guide!
Like the idea of learning French with a teacher?
We’ve added “walkthrough” videos. Elisa will walk you step by step through all the dialogues of each lesson and give an in-depth explanation of all vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar features.
You’ll almost feel like you’re in a virtual classroom with her as your private teacher, where every single line of dialogue is clearly and simply broken down and explained. This lets me guarantee you the learning experience I want you to have!
Not only that, but you’ll be able to comment on all lesson content, and because of our passion for learning languages, not only do we read every single comment but we also usually reply!
What others are saying about my Courses...
''I loved this course. It is tailored to each individual to complete as much as they want, when they want.
The modules are informative and perfect for day to day language. This interactive course is definitely better than a book or a tutor.''

''Loved this course, it was a fun and easy way to learn another language.''
Laurie - USA
How much would it be worth for you to hold conversations in French?
That’s quite a hard question isn’t it?
It’s hard to put a price on the ability to speak French and transform the way you interact with French speakers.
People from all over the world are spending thousands of dollars (or pounds, or euros!) to fly to France to enroll in a language school.
But even those who don’t want to travel or can’t travel often end up spending over a thousand dollars to take French lessons at a local language school.
There are also online courses that often charge a premium. The real question is, do they really work? Are the courses designed in a way that keeps you motivated and makes learning French fun?
My course does! 😉
And because of the huge reach I have on my social media channels, I’m able to offer you a quality course without having to charge you thousands of dollars.
I am only asking for a small investment in yourself.
If you’re ready to put in the time, the results will pay off very quickly. That’s something I can guarantee!
