One of the hardest parts about learning French is that not everything you need to know can be found in your very expensive doorstop of a textbook. Language changes quickly, and if you want to keep up, you’ll need to find alternate ways of bulking up on your French vocab.
One of the best ways to do this is to follow French YouTube vloggers who focus on vocabulary tutorials, because their bite-size lessons are easy to glance over if you have a free five minutes, and they tend to be pretty up-to-date. Another common trick is to get on French social media, like by switching your Facebook account to French so that you can seamlessly incorporate French into your daily life. So why not combine these two with this Learn French With Alexa video? You’ll learn how to talk about YouTube accounts, blogs, Twitter, and more things your parents still don’t get.
