What are the best french language blogs to follow that will not only help you learn French, but also love it? Read on to see the top bloggers divided by learning level. Ready to start learning and loving French?
Ever been lost, overwhelmed, or confused by the abundance of material on the internet? Yeah, so was Charlotte. She had always wanted to learn French, but was just so overwhelmed by just not knowing where to start.

That, and she didn’t want to start something that would take so long to actually achieve. I mean, years to reach her goal? She would dream about what life would be like if she could speak French, but the time was never right for her.

Then one day, Charlotte met Cosette from The LinGo Experience. They talked together and Charlotte shared how she had always wanted to learn, but there was always something in the way – either the lack of understanding how to begin, not wanting to get sucked into something that would take so long to complete, or the unknown financial obligation.

What is a girl to do?

Cosette’s simple response was, “something. Just do something.”

Charlotte hasn’t become fluent yet, but she is on the right track to become so. Now Charlotte no longer hides behind the unknown, but bravely ventures into the realm of French-language learning on a regular basis.

Simply because she has learned to love and enjoy the journey.

So whether you’re just looking for information, or have gotten stuck somewhere along the road, here are some blogs and websites (aside from this blog ) designed for learning the beautiful language. Find the one that can help you ignite your French language learning and help you connect with the French world. Feel free to scroll until you find the appropriate guide for your level.

Something. Just do something.

Blogs for Beginners

As a beginner to the French language, you really want to make sure you get a handle on the language before you start jumping into blogs completely in French. Here are my TOP 3 BEST SITES for beginning learners.

 

1. French Truly

Hands down the #1 Best Blog for beginning learners.

You may have seen her YouTube channel, but did you know that Virginie with French Truly also has a website? Find more fun and loveable messages from Virginie that you won’t find while perusing YouTube

3 Words: AH-MAZE-ING!

Virginie is a HUGE proponent for making language learning FUN and something that is totally accessible on a daily basis.

She gives everything from Video guides on pronunciation, culture, and verbs to written articles about easy exercises to improve your listening comprehension, fun markets in France, and even small tidbits of fascinating French celebrities and history.

Like listening to music? She gives you a guide for just how to use music to improve your own French.

Better yet, she can teach you how to have wonderfully fulfilling French conversations using ONLY 600 WORDS!

Even the busiest person can manage to master 600 words in French. That’s all you need to start having amazing conversations!

Hop to it, my friend! You’ll love what you find on her blog

 

2. The LinGo Experience

You’re here already! This website continues to grow with tips and tricks for helping you find the best resource for succeeding in French.

Our goal is to help you get started learning French and to learn in a way that is meaningful and enjoyable to you. Follow along for weekly tips to keep you going.

 

3. The French Experiment

This blog is a strong runner-up for best blog for beginning learners. The French Experiment is a fantastic resource for beginning learners because it has two of the most important things for learners:

a) Small, bite-sized lessons to help you learn (with audio for every lesson)

b) Free audio stories you can listen to

It’s clean, neat, and simple. It’ll help you get going.

 

4. Love Learning Languages

An honorable mention to be sure for this category. Jennifer with Love Learning Languages has divided out her content based on your learning level and gives a lot of roundup content to up your game with adjectives, adverbs, and activity worksheets.

Dive into material for the DELF/DALF exams and get your prep work done here.

(NOTE: This website is intended for study in preparation for the French proficiency exam. If your primary goal is to speak and understand French, this website is not for you.)

Blogs for Intermediate Learners

Once you get to the point of being able to have a basic conversation with people and understanding a decent portion of what they say, it’s time to start ramping up your game in the blogs and content you read and study online.

This level can be a bit difficult for some because it seems like you are neither here nor there, just stuck somewhere in the confusing middle range of “intermediate”. You want your study time to be the most efficient and effective. These blogs will expand your learning exponentially.

1. French Today

This blog is the perfect site for intermediate learners. Seriously, you can find the answer to any topic here and Camille does an amazing job of explaining confusing concepts in a more understandable way.

Camille thinks a bit out-of-the-box when compared to regular tutors and that’s probably why so many people love her content so much (including yours truly). She really does an amazing job of making the complex so much more understandable!

For all you busy folks out there, she has also put all this marvelous information into a story-format Audio Course to take you through not only French vocabulary, slang, and grammar, but also helps you learn how to ask and answer questions like a real French person. 

As an added bonus, you’ll also learn modern pronunciation with the “street French” speed of her Audio Courses.

It’s like a 3-in-1 course that’s perfect for listening to while you go about your busy day.

Whatever you need, French Today’s got the answer for you.

2. Comme Une Francaise

The runner-up for the intermediate category is Comme Une Francaise.

She has excellent content for learning French culture and slang, but it is sometimes hard to tell if she’s targeting low-intermediate learners or high-intermediate.

For example, her videos are very much geared toward low-intermediate learners because she always repeats the vocabulary twice and has it written on the screen.

Her explanations of the vocabulary are also in English.

Excellent for low-intermediate learners.

However, if you sign up for her newsletter, her text is all in French (without translations as of 10/17) – which really shows more of a target toward high-intermediate or advanced learners.

Your choice of course! Her video content is pretty fun and you can learn from her written newsletters as well.

 

3. Love Learning Languages

Again, an honorable mention for this category as well. Jennifer with Love Learning Languages has divided out her content based on your learning level and gives a lot of roundup content to up your game with adjectives, adverbs, and activity worksheets.

Dive into material for the DELF/DALF exams and get your prep work done here.

(NOTE: This website is intended for study in preparation for the French proficiency exam. If your primary goal is to speak and understand French, this website is not for you.)

Blogs for Advanced Learners

If you haven’t already, it’s really time to start exploring blogs that are written entirely in French. Plus, you’ve probably already noticed that there aren’t many blogs out there focused on French for Advanced Learners. Here are my favorites to get you started.

1. 20 Minutes

This is one of those major blogging hubs that writes about every topic known to man. You’re sure to find a multiplicity of information to learn from with 20 Minutes.

Conveniently divided by categories, you can learn and practice everything from sports to geography, to business, to politics.

They even have a podcast you can listen to all in French.

If that doesn’t spark your interest, I’m not sure what will.

 

2. Le Huffington Post

Known for being the major blog post hub in English, did you know there is also a French version?

Le Huffington Post writes about . . . well, a little of everything.

 People, news, politics, hot off the press. You name it, they’ve got it.

This should get you started finding the most success with learning French! Of course, don’t forget to keep up-to-date with us here at The Lingo Experience so you can continue finding the best resources for your learning style and schedule!
