But this only works if you have at least some experience with the language either you had studied it beforehand or while taking classes for the first time.

Ideally, it would be best if you could take classes in a French school with a french tutors and live in a French speaking country. However, if you do not want to or can’t do so due to monetary constraints, you can still do weekly or monthly programs at a French school or you can also hire a private French tutor, with that you will improve greatly too.

However if you cannot study in France, the best option would be taking French classes nearest to you. French courses are available in community colleges and adult education programs. Those courses shouldn’t be hard to find near you and should be at an affordable price.
When you learn in a group, you might not feel alone or awkward, and this helps greatly with your motivation to learn. This also gives you an opportunity to mingle with like-minded individuals.
One on one skill exchange experience with a fellow learner
Studying with another student is a good idea too. This would work especially well with a friend too, since you’re able to converse with your friend with that language. Conversing with your friend is the best and easiest way to hone your language speaking proficiency.
Keep using whatever you learn to converse in French frequently
The more you use it, the better you become at it. Do this with not only someone you already know. Try it with French native strangers, if they can understand you, it means you are doing something right and you should keep at it. If not, do not be discouraged and try to improve from where you think you might be doing wrong.
Never be complacent of what you already know
When you think you are getting good at what you are learning, do not stop just yet. You need to improve constantly as it still may not be enough to consider yourself as proficient. Be humble and try to acquire the mentality of it is never enough just by knowing a little of this or that.
However, with hiring a French tutor being one of the best options, it comes with a price too. It would be much more costly as compared to going to schools to take up the language. But also at the same time, it is also worth the money due to the fact that you will have a person to converse with you and correct you at the same time which makes learning the language extra effective.
