Stuck in traffic? Losing time in your car? Have you ever felt that in all this wasted time, you could have watched the 750 episodes of One Piece, finished the last Super Mario ten times, or even better…you could have learned French? Between family, friends and work, in addition to this time-consuming commute, it can become difficult to find time to properly learn French.

Fortunately, every problem has a solution, and what could be a better solution than turning that commute time into learning time? Stop passing the time mindlessly listening to the radio and try some of our best tips for mastering French in your car!

You can learn French in your car, hands free
While driving, it’s important that you keep your focus on the road, so this is why our top tips won’t require you to use your hands!

Listening to French audio content in the car is a good way to learn
This is because it is a fun and efficient way to learn. With FrenchPod101.com podcasts, you will be able to discover French culture through topics about everyday life. Instead of the radio, listen to a French podcast adapted to your level, from Absolute Beginner to Advanced, and you will make progress sooner that you would expect!

https://media.giphy.com/media/pXsF2CgWoiel2/giphy.gif

You can listen to French music in the car
Did you know that you can learn French by singing while driving? Listen to songs from cartoon or drama and try to identify some words you learned.

Challenge yourself! Use the French you’ve studied up to this point and see how much you understand! Making the jump to real-life French is a scary one, but friendly children’s songs are a great place to start!

You can learn alone in your car
When you’re driving alone, you can be as loud as you want – there is nothing better for remembering your French lessons than repeating loudly, again and again. Next time you see a driver who seems to be talking alone, you will know he or she is just learning French!

https://media.giphy.com/media/uSXTDFYDWpelW/giphy.gif

You can learn through repetition with your passengers
If there are passengers in the car, it can be more stimulating to learn together. You can set a role play with French dialogues. With FrenchPod101.com, you can download all the lessons transcript including the dialogues, as a PDF. Print it out and have some fun speaking in French!

One of the passengers can answer the quiz available on each of our lessons, while another can correct that person. Listening to someone at a more advanced level of French or a better accent is positive and helps you improve.

You can learn French offline
Do you have a poor connection or are unable to use the Internet? It’s not a problem for learning French! Before you start your commute, use our App to download the lessons you want to study and the podcast you want to listen to in your car, and you will be able to enjoy your lessons offline. Entering a tunnel won’t be a problem anymore. What a pleasure to listen to audio content without having the host freezing every 5 seconds!

You can learn every day at your own pace
One of the best approaches for learning a language is little by little and often. It’s not efficient to take in a huge amount of information at one time. What you need is to study on a regular basis – a little bit of French every day. You commute several days a week, and that is all time you can take advantage of!

You have the freedom to choose the lessons and podcasts you want to focus on, at your own rhythm. You may want to do a little revision or discover how to talk about a new topic. And if you’re wondering what to learn next, you can use the new Learning Paths, which is our customized pathway feature that gives you a step-by-step way to learn French without getting lost!

If you don’t have a car and commute by another method, these tips are still valid! Learning French is no longer limited to the classroom or your house; there are so many benefits to learning in your car or elsewhere. Reaching a conversational level will take you less time than you could ever have imagined! Don’t forget to sign up for your Free Lifetime Account and enjoy our content!

    To Do or not to Do on the Beach in France

    Learn some French basic phrases to fully enjoy your holidays in France!

    Voilà l’été! Ok, not yet…We are only in June but the months of July and August are highly awaited by many, because it is vacation time!

    http://33.media.tumblr.com/2c71e2da2eb29a726c4e0cb25695c7d5/tumblr_inline_o5m4tojcQ31tygh8e_500.gif

    Do French people like to go to the beach?

    Many people take their summer vacations so they can go to the beach. French people usually spend a weekend or even as long as three weeks at the beach.

    So if I wanted to go to the beach in France, where should I go?

    The most fashionable beaches are on the:

  • English Channel: Cherbourg, Honfleur…
  • Atlantic ocean: Biarritz, Saint Jean du luz…
  • Mediterranean sea: Cannes, Nice, Marseilles…
  • These are the main sea resorts in France, and the destination usually depends on what people want to do.

    The Atlantic side, especially Biarritz, where the waves are big, and it is a surfing spot. There is a famous surfing competition there every summer. All of the Atlantic coast is great for jetskiing.

    http://38.media.tumblr.com/a747f5cb2e608831d9cea4d4cb647a66/tumblr_inline_o5m4n0LHnp1tygh8e_500.gif

    For partying, the French Riviera along the Mediterranean sea is the best. Oui, you can enjoy private beach parties with famous international DJs and if you are lucky, you can make VIP friends who will invite you to night parties on luxury yachts.

    For a family vacation, the north is the place to go if you don’t mind stone beaches and cooler water. The Atlantic is also nice. But be wary of the tides when you go to the beach because in France, they are as fast as a horse running. I don’t know if your horse runs but “tides” in French is les marées.

    http://38.media.tumblr.com/42e11c9e03179b410287840b4bc948e7/tumblr_inline_o5m47jYmbg1tygh8e_540.gif

    Are French beaches free?

    Most of them are free, but you may have to pay to go to private beaches.

    What should you eat on the beach? Cheese?

    No, we don’t eat cheese! We eat chouchous. Chouchou are peanuts with caramel. There is a guy who yells: chouchou, chouchou! Many people want to sell you things on the beach. Don’t hesitate to ignore them or just say “I don’t speak French” with an American accent, and they will not bother you again!

    What about attitude ?

    Try to not to be loud and noisy. Don’t play music with a sound system as there will be probably one on the beach.

    http://33.media.tumblr.com/77823b68407b5546ae26d472ed29e6ca/tumblr_inline_o5m4q0bmko1tygh8e_500.gif

    What are some other recommendations?

    Keep an eye on your stuff on the beach. Don’t leave your bag alone. French people are nice but you never know!
