Resources for practicing French: the best way to learn French

Updated: Oct 25, 2023

Taking French courses is important, but practicing French on a daily basis is PRIMORITY! Don't expect a few hours with your teacher to work miracles: you won't master French just by taking lessons. It would be like working out once a week with a coach and hoping to run a marathon a few months later... It's physically impossible! It's the same with languages. It takes several years to learn your mother tongue, so why should a few months be enough to become fluent in a foreign language? The best way to learn French and progress is to practice every day: watching films or TV series, listening to music, reading, speaking with a language partner... So here are a few resources to help you have fun practicing French every day!
