Listen, what’s the problem? Jealous doesn’t change anything. Find the best way to learn french on your own and start learning. Personally, I find it best to learn a language through TV shows and movies on lingopie. I listen to live speech of native speakers and quickly learn to understand the language by ear, which gives me a huge advantage over those who learn the language only from textbooks.
I envy people who know many languages. It’s very cool, but I can’t do it.
