Visitors: 187

I don't know if there is a single “best" way to learn French. There are certainly several options you can take in learning to speak French. Each of them have their own pros and cons. But here is my suggestion. At the beginning learn use French phrases you may need if you're visiting France.
Here are useful French phrase at the post office:

How much is it to send a letter to the United States? C'est combien pour envoyer une lettre aux Etats-Unis?

I would like to send this letter to England: Je voudrais envoyer cette lettre en Angleterre.

I would like to send this letter recorded delivery: Je voudrais envoyer cette lettre en recommandé.

How long will my mail take to reach its addressee/destination? Combien de temps mettra mon courrier pour parvenir à son destinataire?

Could you post this letter? Pourriez-vous mettre cette lettre à la boîte/poste?

I missed the post: J'ai manqué la levée

We've received a parcel through the post: Nous avons reçu un colis postal.

We can send it to you by parcel post: On peut vous l'envoyer par colis postal.

This parcel will have to be sent surface mail: Il faut expédier ce colis par bateau.

The letter has a Toulouse postmark: La lettre porte le cachet de Toulouse.

To be postmarked 28th February at the latest: A envoyer le 28 février au plus tard, le cachet de la poste faisant foi.

You must prepare (package, wrap) what you are sending very well (carefully): Il faut bien préparer son envoi.
