The Ultimate List of French Resources

Oh lala, let me guess, you’re learning French or you want to start learning the language and you’re looking for websites, apps, and other French resources.

I honestly don’t use many resources for French. I keep it simple. I use Duolingo and talk to my friends from France.

However, I kept receiving questions from learners. Therefore, I asked native speakers, French learners, and teachers for advice and I gathered everything in this post.

This is the Ultimate list of French resources and I tried to make it as complete as possible. You can find free resources as well as resources of high quality that require some investment.

See this list as a place where we can return when we’re out of inspiration and look for new ways to learn this beautiful language.

You can bookmark this page so that you can return whenever you want.

This is quite a long list so I kept the descriptions short. I may write other blog posts in the future to give more information about these resources.
