Benefits of learning French

French is the 6th most spoken language in the world with over 274 million speakers globally. It’s the official language of 29 different countries including France, Belgium, Canada, Switzerland, Congo, and Senegal. In fact, the majority of French speakers live in Africa, so if you were interested in exploring the second largest continent in the world, then French would be a handy tool to take with you!

France itself is a beautiful country - especially for cheese lovers - and is home to the most romantic city in the world, Paris, so you’re guaranteed to make new connections there, but be warned; rumour has it that Parisians aren’t fond of speaking English and much prefer to be greeted in French!

Becoming fluent in a second language, especially a popular one like French, instantly opens up a new world of opportunities in your career, with exciting job prospects such as being a translator, interpreter - and even being able to work in any field or with any number of clients who happen to speak the languages you speak!

I learned more Spanish in one short cartoon than I did with months of Duolingo, and I just started! I can't wait to learn more.

How to learn French with TV in 8 easy steps

These 8 simple steps will elevate your French learning experience and give you better, faster results:

Try to find a show that you find engaging and entertaining. Learning French through TV is much more effective if you are engaged and immersed in the content.

Watch a little bit of French TV every day, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes. It’s only possible to become fluent if you establish new learning habits on a daily basis.

Get a good understanding of Lingopie’s amazing language learning tools. It will be very helpful for your French learning if you know how to repeat, pause and listen to words again and save them to your personal flashcards.

Repeat the dialogue you’ve just heard out loud. If it was too fast, you can use our tool which reads it back to you slowly. Don’t be passive in your learning; make sure you comprehend the content. This is a must when wanting to learn French as effectively as possible.

Make notes and write down any French vocabulary that you find important or useful. Writing down words and phrases will significantly increase your ability to remember them. Lingopie saves the words you click on, but hand-writing them will make you remember it even better!

Retell the plot of the show or the movie out loud - to yourself or to someone who understands the French language. Even speaking in front of the mirror will help you! Speaking out loud is an important exercise to establish the contents you’ve downloaded into your brain.

Once you are a little more advanced and feeling confident, you can turn off the supporting English subtitles and just leave up the French ones. This ensures that you count solely on your own understanding without a helping hand. But don’t worry if you’re struggling because you can still click the words on the French subs and see the translation displayed!

Don’t stop practising. Learning a language is like playing an instrument; you can never be too good at it and you can never be ‘finished’. So don’t stop revising, learning and listening!
