What are some Netflix TV shows to help learn French?
I found some recommendations for some French Netflix series. Has anyone tried these. How do you get the most out of watching without getting exhausted? http://vivalanga.com/best-tv-series-to-learn-french-for-all-levels/
Merci beaucoup, channy1987! Les Revenants et Engrenages sont très bonnes! Marseille est intéressant sur NetFlix. Voici une liste de bons films français. https://www.timeout.com/paris/en/film/best-french-movies
Merci! I watch Ladybug et Chat Noir, an amazing animated series! and also Mofy (a really sweet animated series that is perfect for beginners). Mofy is also really great because the episodes are only about 6 minutes, so if you find your attention wanders and you get exhausted trying to follow full length shows (I do) these short charming episodes are perfect! Extra en francais is also a fun sitcom (like a reallly low budget freinds) made for learners. Not sure about netflix, but all the above can be found on youtube. My personal experience is, if I really want to learn and get the most learning out of watching t.v. I cannot use English subtitles, I either need to have no subtitles, or occasionally French subtitles.... otherwise I just tune out the dialogue and read. However, I have talked to people who learn quite well using English subtitles, so it might work for you. Tutorial videos (like watching people cook or paint or do their hair) are also really great as they are easy to follow along.
Not a tv show but I recently watched this lovely movie called My Life as a Courgette (My life as a Zucchini) which is actually originally a French movie so the French dub is pretty nice I assume it also has French subtitles but I can't remember. It has a nice English dub too for those who might want to watch that before or after watching the French dub of it.
Just about anything on Netflix that is a Netflix original will have French audio and subtitles. I've watched countless movies and TV shows this way and I personally love it.
For me if I want to stay interested and not get bored I will usually watch a show I've already seen in English that I really enjoy that way I know whats going on, I'm enjoying the show, I can learn new vocabulary because I already know whats going on.
Hope this helps enjoy!!!
Here's a catalogue of movies/series on Netflix with good subtitles, sorted by language: http://languagelearningwithnetflix.com/catalogue.html
Also, here's a free extension that adds bilingual subs, pop-up dictionary, and improved playback control: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lln-language-learning-wit/hoombieeljmmljlkjmnheibnpciblicm
I also watch Peppa Pig! A personal (and nostalgic) favorite of mine is Lucky Luke
My hs French teacher would let us watch this if we were good/ did our homework. This teacher made a huge impact on my life so I love rewatching the show and reminiscing!
Try La Mante if you can stand murder mysteries. The vocabulary was simple enough and they spoke slow enough for me to keep up. I do tend to have the subtitles on in English, but I noticed with La Mante that I wasn't reading them and during a few episodes I was actually doing a jigsaw. That show is what got me onto watching French shows actually.
hello! i'm particularly picky about the french shows i watch - mostly because I hate to watch things that are not synced. so, i usually prefer cartoons when it comes to french netflix! i recently watched Hilda, which was adorable in french and i adored the voice actors and animation!
