Every learner needs to start with the basics whenever he decides to learn a new language. It may not seem easy to others, but when one fully understands the basics, everything will just flow smoothly.

And so this would seem. Learners, particularly French learners should start learning the most common French phrases to have a quick start. Mind you, these basics are learnable even before you have a formal training on the language schools. It would be best as well if you already know some as you go abroad and study French in France, perhaps?


Oh well, here are the basics since you need the lists. You can in fact, start learning by getting familiar with these phrases first then eventually learn its translation and pronunciation. Don’t get pressured of you don’t get the pronunciation quickly. You will get the right tone when you finally have a proper training.


Anyway, here are the 29 lists. Enjoy!
