Top Online Resources to Learn French for Free
Learning foreign languages is a beautiful thing. Learning French is a dream of many people as this language is like music to our ears...its romantic, mysterious, full of love and chic!

However, learning a foreign language and French especially can be very expensive and difficult! So if you want to do it you should do it well. The most efficient way of learning foreign language is by taking up the intensive course in the native country. But this is also the most expensive way. 

To help you out we've gathered together a list of useful resources to help you learn the lingo of the French!

Duolingo French

Personally this is the best free online language course available. I have just completed it! It is interesting, interactive, it covers grammar and vocabulary but especially a lot of listening which won’t make you bored. I love the option to type what you hear or their tips and forum. There is a great community which always is happy to help. There are other resources to use like quizzes, articles just to name a few. About 3 million learners trusted the site and used it so it cannot disappoint you.

He helps to discover French lifestyle and culture. The site will teach you French for free, just follow the blog posts and look up interesting resources.


This site is half free and half paid resource for learning French. I use to for free and it is enough for now. It has thousands and I mean thousands of lessons and once you sign up with them they will be delivered to your inbox. It is a good way not to forget to practise French!

This is run by a language professional, Laura Lawless. She is a linguistic specialist and the author of several books on language. She shares a lot of resources for free but also offers paid courses.
Good luck with learning French. It is a beautiful language indeed and it is so rewarding to see how you progress with your commitment to learn it. Do something for yourself...and don't spend a penny!

Aga Marchewka About Aga 

My name is Aga and I am addicted to shopping! So I have become ShopaholicFromHome who loves to shop from home. But this is not all. I have thousands of ideas per minute, per hour, per day…recently I have moved to Lyon in France! That’s why my main goal now is to explore France, experience French way of living, learn the language and eat a lot of cheese, baguettes, some snails and French frogs, drink wine and wear berets (apparently so French) but also I would love to introduce a bit of Polish culture and mentality into French lives.
