Any good shows or music in French?
Hi! I've been learning french on duolingo for a while now, and I can recognize and say a few words. But, I'd like to train my ear to recognize words when a REAL person says it, and maybe learn how new words and how to pronounce them. Where can I find good cartoons or shows in french?
You're welcome! The title of the video says it has sub-titles but it doesn't :(
It's a very popular production, though, so it's easy to find videos of individual songs that DO have sub-titles, or to search for the lyrics on lyric websites. Just search for "Belle paroles" for example. "Paroles" is what to use when you want French lyrics.
I'm fluent in French already, but I listen to TAL, pretty much anything by her is good. A popular one is Dernière Danse by Indila, Stromae is a popular artist, though I don't particularly enjoy his music. As far as TV, I used to watch a comedy titled "Les Parents". It was Québecois, pretty great if you can understand the fast-ish talking.Hope I helped a bit!
Great - when I started off with my first French music, I chanced upon Indila and heard Dernier Danser - that is my first song which I practiced with it! I saw the word by word translation, the video, the lyrics, etc. and try comprehending the words without seeing them.... Music always helps learn a language!
Geronimo Stilton is a kids' cartoon in French. There are some episodes available online, but when you search, make sure you include the term 'Français' because you may end up with the English-dubbed episodes. There's also a Disney FR youtube channel, and various playlists. Search things like 'Disney Français Playlist' Also look at any films you may have on DVD, and see if French is a language option. I listen to Radio FIP online. It has a great mix of music (some excellent, some frankly bizarre) with occasional talking in between tracks. It helps my pronunciation even if I can't follow everything they say.
