Our website has made available in the Free lessons section, vocabulary lessons, ideal for beginners to intermediate learners. Lessons generally come with pictures or infographics as well as a practice quiz to help you exercise what you have learned.

These lessons will give you the foundation of the French language vocabulary. If you want to take your  learning to the next level, we strongly recommend that you find yourself a native French teacher or take live online classes that will help you gain more confidence.

If you are looking for affordable and cost effective online lessons, our first recommendation will be Lingoda. It's an online school where you can really get immersed without travelling to France.

Another way to develop your vocabulary is through TV and if you like binge-watching great movies, try for free Lingopie. This language learning tool is awesome for learning new words while having fun. Movies and series come with subtitles in English and French that you can activate. And the great thing is that you can just click on words you don't understand to get them translated on the go. After watching a movie, you can review the new words learned through their flashcards and that's one of their great features they have.


If you don't have any of these, you can still watch some TV shows, movies or songs on Youtube or netflix which are  also great tools.

However, I won't say enough, that it's great to always have someone to interact with when learning a language. So don't neglect learning with a live tutor or finding yourself a language partner. You can find a language partner on Italki, on a subreddit for language learning  or websites like Hello Talk, or Tandem.
