A foreign language has to be learnt, no matter how close it is to your native one...
Wel I'm in first year Spanish at University (not advanced, just intermediate), so it's not like I don't know what I'm talking about and I can tell you with 100% accuracy, us who speak french have a MUCH easier time than those who don't. Not only are the words often very similar, as they both root from latin, but the verbs and modes are often exactly the same.
