How long it would take to learn how to read French?
I'm not interested in the spoken language, I just want to be able to read French texts, mainly newspapers, Wikipedia articles and so on. I'm not interested in reading French literature, philosophy, nor writing academic papers in French. Just reading everyday texts.
What are the best methods?
I've heard about "French for Reading" by Karl Sandberg, but it's not available here and it's a little bit expensive to buy it from Amazon.
The same apply to "French for Reading Knowledge", "Reading French in Arts and Science", and "Skills and Techniques for Reading French".
Can you suggest me a good way to learn reading French as quickly as possible?
