Youtube channel to help learn French
Hi all, I've just started a youtube channel to help people who learn French here. I know it is difficult for most of you, especially at the beginning, so I'm trying to help. My videos are in French and in English, and I make both French and English subtitles for all of them. Here is the channel, which still has only videos for the first lessons, but feel free to subscribe as I'll add more videos later: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuEQ46asZFw48r3KtjGkROg Enjoy!
Thanks! Feel free to leave some comments and suggestions, it might help me to make even better quality videos for the future. ;)
I think your videos are great and you do them really well. Out of interest, how would you describe your French accent? BTW your English pronunciation is excellent too (I'm assuming you must have lived in England), do you teach English?
Thanks a lot for the compliments. You have very good questions here, I may add the answers in further videos:
-although I am originally from Lyon, I keep my French accent as "standard" as possible, the standard being the French spoken around Tours, a city in the Loire castles' region. The people from Lyon don't have much of an accent these days, although there are some little things that are still specific to the city (one of them being the pronunciation of the « eu »).
-I was lucky enough to be in a bilingual school with British teachers at a very early age (I actually learned how to count in English up to 10 before learning it in French, that school still exists and is quite unique in France :) ), and I've always cultivated my English, as well as my interest for other languages. I have traveled to the UK and other English speaking countries a number of times, but I've never really lived outside France.
-I have taught a number of things, but I've never taught languages, except now with my youtube channel. :)
You deserve the appreciation for all the hard work! The best part is that we get a view of the lessons through a native French who can get us more close to the culture if France and the nuances of French. Great work :)
Thank you for taking time out of your life to do this! I'm going to start watching the videos and will subscribe. :-)
