The suggestions in this review is really interesting. If I would have known about this method to write in French I would of take some French classes in high school. This method are really helpful, I like the way that they give you the different tips to get started, the advice while writing, and some words to be careful with. They even give you a example paper. Websites like this are the one that really help students to get organize.

Who knew that flash cards could help you and others learn another language? After I read this article I realize that flash cards and color coding are two of the most helpful ways to study foreign language. How amazing!!!

As a French student I found many useful tips that I can utilize when I study and write assignments. When I started writing in French, I would often get frustrated by trying to directly translate English to French. They explain this is difficult because French uses different syntax and different grammatical structures than in English. They suggest that you keep your sentences simple and to not only use a French-English dictionary, but to also use a French dictionary to make sure you are using the appropriate term.
Another tip that I will surely use and advice other students to use is to constantly read French. They say that your writing in French can only be as advanced as your reading level.
Effective tips to learn French

For me, 'Writing in French' provides numerous fundamental techniques to develop and improve any language skills such us peer-editing, brainstorming and grammatical conventions; although those activities are infallible tools to acquire proficiency on the subject, as a student learning languages, I found two in particular that have proven to be very effective to me: 1. to think in French and 2. read in French.
To switch to the hemisphere of the other language is not an easy task to achieve, but to at least try short or full sentences learned in the classroom when asking for French wine or cheese in the market, may get your neurons to start making connections to previous stored information in the brain.
Also, to read newspapers, books and magazines significantly helps to become aware of the grammatical patterns and sentence structure of any language.
