Tips for speaking French if you’re a beginner

So you’re coming to France. Statistically, you’re probably coming to Paris. And you don’t know much beyond bonjour and merci. Don’t worry, Camille from French Today is here to save you.

This bonus podcast episode is Camille explaining the mistakes you’re probably making while speaking French – and she is also teaching us how to get it right. 

Over the 40 minute episode, she goes through greetings, pleasantries, cultural tips and more. In fact, if you’re not a beginner, there’s a lot of extra stuff too. Camille explains how best to say that you don’t understand what’s going on – and gives a little look at slang and how French is developing as a language. 

Here’s the episode.

In a rush? Well here’s the whole episode condensed into 60 seconds.

As for Camille, she has been a French teacher for two decades now – and it’s through her audiobooks that I’m improving my own French. 

If you want to learn French with Camille’s method, find the audiobooks here.

If not, I recommend listening to this podcast in a quiet spot because it’s most enjoyable if you repeat, repeat, repeat all the things she says. Good luck! Merci, au revoir.
