Top 7 YouTube Channels to Learn French

As an avid lover of la langue française, we are huge fans of finding all things French related. Brainscape’s top rated web and mobile French app has helped hundreds of thousands of learners improve French in the most scientifically proven way possible, but it’s always great to look into supplementary study materials.

That was why we jumped on the opportunity to review the massive body of popular French language learning YouTube channels. YouTube is a huge resource for learning about many different things, languages included.

Here are the Top 7  YouTube channels to learn French we found (you can find the top Spanish YouTube channels here):

Our Top 7 YouTube Channels for French


With 14,988 subscribers, this channel has a lot of videos, 49,685 to be exact. They’re all on different things, quizzes, vocabulary, grammar, but some of them are ridiculous. This channel has a video of 20,000 vocabulary words, running over 13 hours in length. .

2. Learn French:

Frenchpod101 has short videos of vocabulary words and random phrases followed by a short quiz on the lesson. It’s in a radio talk show format structured around everyday dialogues presented by a native French speaker and a native English speaker. They also have an entire website that has more resources; however, though they advertise it as free, there are fees that pop up here and there. I would just stick to their videos.


This channel is much less structured with no themes and follows no logical order as it jumps from pronouns to conjugating random “-er” verbs. It is presented in a very simple format so that there are no distracting pictures or colors anywhere.

4. lsfrnch

The channel is for people who like reading PowerPoints. In most of the lessons, there are pages with all the words written up as the speaker, in a thick French accent, reads the words while highlighting them irritatingly with his mouse.

5. thefrenchguy3000

This is a hilarious channel led by a guy who is NOT in fact French. The combination of him trying to be cool, his French with a weird twang, plus his random anecdotes makes it a very Top 10 YouTube Channels to Learn Spanish amusing experience from which you can still learn something. If anything, check this guy out because as he says in the video “Anyone Can speak French (2) “la plage”‘: “I truly believe in my heart of hearts that anyone can speak French.” His enthusiasm is breathtaking.

6. French by Phone teaches with this sweet French woman named Jacqueline who instructs almost completely in French with English subtitles here and there. One thing that must be noted is that while this is a popular channel, she does not go over basic grammar and vocabulary. So if you are lost, it might be better to go to another channel so you can learn those rules before coming here.

7. The Radio Lingua Network

On this channel, CoffeeBreak French!, the user learns with Anna, the student, who is instructed by Mark, the teacher. This duo is so enthusiastic and helpful as they situate each lesson in different parts of Paris, that you can’t help but feel that you are undertaking a foreign journey with them.

These are just YouTube channels that we’ve gathered, so if you know of any other channels, feel free to comment and let us know about them!

I've discovered a very very good Youtube channel.

Dan Rock is also an entertaining American YouTube personality who makes videos in French about the differences between U.S. and French culture and his life in France.

He is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!!!

Feel free to have a look :)

The best way to put your french skills into practice is to take an immersion course in France, to avoid making the wrong choice by choosing a school I recommend you only go for recognized ones i used this site to find my schools :
