Authentic French with Commercials & Films

Improve your French comprehension

Watch & read and a few cloze exercises for Francophone commercials and film trailers are available for videos hosted on Youtube. Transcripts and some cloze exercises are also available for film clips; however, most of the clips are not available online so the DVDs will be necessary. National and regional flags indicate the main accent(s) heard in each video, which may also include metropolitan French accents. Currently the various accents include those of France, Picardy, Tahiti, Canada, Quebec, New Brunswick, Louisiana, Belgium, Switzerland and Senegal. Don't forget to check out the sister site, French Listening Resources, for more authentic (and spontaneous) French and online exercises with mp3s and videos recorded in France.

For more French learning through authentic videos, I recommend Yabla French and FluentU. For audiobooks and lessons of modern French, try French Today. I've recommended some French books at Amazon, and Interlinear books are great for learning French by reading literal translations in English. Need even more French? Try the French courses at Udemy
