3. Have fun with a comic book

When you want to immerse yourself in a culture, there are certainly novels but also comic books. Reading a comic is fun! And besides, it’s a very nice gift idea for Christmas or a Birthday! It’s always nice and you don’t necessarily think of buying it yourself. I have selected for you 10 of the best comics in French.

4. Test your pronunciation

Why not take the opportunity to review the basics of French pronunciation? The earlier you study pronunciation, the better your results will be. Several videos are available on YouTube to help you improve your pronunciation. So do some gymnastics with your lips, and your tongue and start practicing now.

5. Practice listening

Understanding a sound is being able to hear the difference between different sounds. That’s why I regularly post short videos to help you hear the difference between two words that may sound the same. You have examples on Instagram but also in the blog.

6. Have a good time watching a movie

Do you have a favorite movie or series? Why not watch this film or series in French? Or you could discover a classic French film. Take a look at the selection made by a French filmmaker friend.

7. Listen to French songs

I just spoke about the great cinematographic classics but you can also opt for the great classics of French songs. I’m sure you already know some of the artists listed here. The advantage is threefold, you will listen to beautiful music, discover the culture and practice your pronunciation if you dare to take the plunge and sing.

8. Discover French tales

Many fairy tales take place at night and when the temperatures are low, a real atmosphere. It is therefore ideal to read a Grimm or Perrault tale in the evening. I read a few tales emphasizing the pronunciation of French. Go listen to Bluebeard. Check out this terrifying story and practice saying it.

9. Start writing in French

Actively practice your French by writing a few lines in the comments below this article. You can even use a grammar checker if you’re not sure. Writing is more difficult to master than reading and speaking. So take advantage of this opportunity to practice and write. I’d love to hear from you.

Improve Your French

Learning the pronunciation on your own is very complicated. You need someone to point you out and explain where your mistakes lie. To go beyond these English and French differences, I propose a personalized learning program. Book a study session to receive personalized advice.
