Extra French TV Series
Hi fellow French learners,
I've just discovered this on YouTube and thought I would share it with you.
It's a Channel 4 (UK) TV series aimed at people learning French. (Apparently they made them for other languages as well). It's very cheesy and quite old now (early 2000s) but I'm finding it really fun to watch for listening practice. It's a flatmate sitcom in the style of Friends. It uses really easy French and they make it easy to pick up words you don't know through context.
I love French in Action! It was one of my first experiences of actually understanding spoken French. The professor who teaches is such a joy to listen to.
I think a lot of the episodes are on YouTube now as well.
Cool! I bookmarked it for future reference! Thanks! :3
I've seen it. As the episodes progress, so does the complexity of conversation and vocabulary. I thought it was very good.
I really love finding something that feels like it's just the right level or a bit above for where I'm at in learning French. This series is great isn't it - it really hits the spot!
"Extra" help in the form of "Extra French" is really great so thanks. Any additional help we can get like this is awesome.
I watched this series one year ago, when I began to study French. I really liked it, because it helped me with listening comprehension. It is quite funny and enjoyable.
On your recommendation, I watched the first episode of Extra. Thank you for posting. This is just what I need for listening comprehension. Have some lingots.
I'm so glad you found it useful! I'm up to episode seven now and really enjoying it. I like how they recap the story every so often to reinforce the vocabulary. It's really well put together for language learners!
I have watched three episodes now and the show is "laugh-out-loud" funny. "Je l'adore."
I found them very funny. You can search for others that the same group made, though I didn't enjoy them as much.
Wow so cool! Thank you so much because of you I got 100% on my french test!!
Cool! Thanks! :3
Wow I LOVE friends! Thanks a lot for the information. I'm definately going to enjoy learning French this way.
thanks so much! I've been looking for French tv shows or movies that'll help me (since I'm at a beginner level) and this will help me very much! when I'm more advanced in French I'll watch these and see how much I know!
Thanks. I'm addicted to this show now. It's cheesy and cute at the same time. It's really good for learning because they don't talk too fast.
When I first started learning French over a year ago I tried to watch the show with french subtitles. And I hardly got anything. Now I'm watching it without subtitles and can follow it completely and I feel very accomplished.
