Accents régionaux et discrimination linguistique

Accents régionaux
Like every language, French is spoken in a variety of different ways across the country (and around the world). Learn about the discrimination speakers of "non standard" French may face in this C1-level video with interactive subtitles.

Mardi Gras

Mardi gras vocabulary
Mardi Gras is an annual celebration of extravagance and (over)indulgence before Lent. Because Mardi Gras, literally "Fat Tuesday," is tied to Easter, the date changes every year.

Tomber amoureux

Tomber amoureux
Fall in love with the French expression tomber amoureux.

Yes - oui, ouais, ouah...

Yes in French
Saying "yes" in French is pretty simple, but there are quite a few synonyms and precisions to be aware of. Check out this lesson to learn how to say yes, yeah, sure, and more.

Premier rendez-vous

Premier rendez-vous
Very fun and funny video about a young man hoping for a perfect first date.
