French TV shows 0n Netflix

 

On of the best ways to learn French is to watch television series on Netflix. As of mid-2018 there are a ton of options for watching French TV on Netflix with a total eight shows and lots of seasons.

The most attractive feature to watching French shows on Netflix is that you can toggle between English and French subtitles. Note that on a desk-top these features are on the lower-right portion of your screen. The advantage to this is you can watch with French-only subtitles and see how much you understand. In addition, you can look up words you don’t know and create vocabulary lists.

top 10 YouTube channels for learning French

Bonjour! My name is David! I’ve been offering French lessons via Skype since the beginning of 2014. Over the past few years I’ve been observing and monitoring the best YouTube channels for learning French.

I’ve put together a list of my favorite channels and made some comments. In order to get included on my list the channel had to have good and original videos. Other criteria were that the channels’ teachers be good at what they do and continue to post on a regular basis to YouTube.

I put myself in the role of the student and asked myself if the channel would actually be helpful in learning French. One channel on my list, French In Action, was a TV series for learning French produced in the late 1980s. I believe that it’s dateless content and remains a fantastic resource for students today. Any other channels I missed? Please let me know in the comments box!

Celebrities Speaking French

Ever wonder which famous people speak French? Here I’ve compiled a list of Hollywood actors and actresses, rock stars, sports stars and politicians who all have learned and can speak French.

I actually evaluated their French and gave them grades ranging from A-F. You’ll be really impressed by people such as Jodie Foster, Bradley Cooper, Oliver Stone and Mick Jagger.
