How long does it take to learn French when you're a beginner?

Obviously there's a lot of parameters like:
- are you used to learning different languages?
- do you have any exposure to French? (for example, if you live in a French speaking country)
- do you understand grammar in your own language?
- how easily do you learn new things?
- do you know another latin language like Spanish or Italian?

Our goal is to help you speak French as fast as possible, but we'll also work on other areas of the language like grammar, reading, writing, because it's important to have a broad understanding of how French works.

The European nomenclature has divided language skills into 6 levels: A1, A2 (for beginners), B1, B2 (for intermediate levels), C1, C2 (for advanced levels). From A1 to B2, each level takes between 6 months and 18 months to reach.
