French through Music
- A laptop or phone to watch the videos on. A notebook to jot new vocabulary into.
I studied French for 12 years at school.
I lived in Ivory Coast, France, AND Belgium.
Yet when I graduated from school I still felt like my French was terrible. I was nowhere near fluent.
As soon as I got my hands on some music in French that I liked, that all changed!
I am sure music will be just as helpful, motivating and inspiring for you.
Give it a shot!
Go through 10 songs, learning the most important vocabulary. Build your knowledge, skills, fluency and enjoy!
Who this course is for:
- Anybody who likes music and wants to start learning French!
