Learn French Through Songs: Piece of French breaks down Angèle’s ‘Balance ton quoi’ – Frenchly

by learn a language journalist
Listening to contemporary French music is one of the best ways to learn French without feeling like you’re studying. The repetition in pop songs helps reinforce new vocabulary and phrases, sung French is usually slower than spoken French, and you’ll probably learn a lot of colloquial phrases and pronunciations. In this video from Piece of French, Elsa breaks down the popular song by Belgian singer Angèle, “Balance Ton Quoi.” The song is a play on the French version of the #MeToo movement, #Balancetonporc i.e. “squeal on your pig.” There’s plenty of wordplay, informal language, and good vocabulary to learn, as […]

by learn a language journalist
Watch this simple nursery rhyme which plays on the word dinosaure and the numbers from 1 to 10 in French. Learners are asked whether each image shows Hector le – un (1) nosaure, deux (2) nosaure etc. and are encouraged to shout non each time, until they get to dix(10) nosaure – where they can shout: Oui, c’est Hector le dinosaure! Please note that for six (6) and dix (10), the “x” is silent when followed by another word starting with a consonant. A different dinosaur is used for each number so you can introduce/revise various French colours as well. […]

Aisling O’Loughlin’s New Beau Is Encouraging Her To Learn French

by learn a language journalist
The French are losing their patience with me. It’s nearly three years now and my French remains at Leaving Cert level. D minus at that. I actually got a B. Honours for those asking, whatever that means anymore. False hope. It should have been a D minus. Learning off your French verbs by rote will only get you so far. The Frenchman says I understand when the mood takes. He may have a point. I got reprimanded at Christmas for carrying out a conversation in English, just one to one mind you, but enough to irritate a Grande Dame. Probationary […]

Oui, Paris! Why now is the perfect time to learn French | HerCanberra

Oui, Paris! Why now is the perfect time to learn French Posted on 28 January, 2021 We’re calling it: the allure of Paris has never been so intense. It’s partially because of the travel ban (we all want what we can’t have, right?) but also the perfectly timed arrival of a particular Netflix sensation where the city of lights practically has a starring role. While Emily in Paris’ representation of French culture and Parisians may be rife with cliches, you can’t deny that the show captured the city itself in all it’s dreamy, romantic glory. The unfortunate truth is that, […]
