Learning a new language requires practice and daily exposure to it – ideally, everyday. There are many useful French-learning Instagram accounts you can follow for this regular, spontaneous, and fun exposure as you view your Instagram feed. To this end, I have curated 10 top Instagram accounts to learn French in 2020.

1. Bonjour French By Anna

A post shared by ✨Bonjour French✨by Anna (@bonjour.french.by.anna) on

The first notable thing about Bonjour French by Anna is that it posts everyday – normally.

It makes use of texts, visual illustrations, and sound to create a truly good learning experience. The best thing about this account is that it also translates every text on its post and the accompanying captions and comments to English.

With 26.8K followers at the time of writing, you can also learn from the comments of followers.

2. Langue Institut

If you like motivational quotes or random inspirational sayings, then, you should follow Langue Institut.

This account keeps things very simple and tidy – it uses texts only to post motivational quotes in French and translates it the caption section.

Another good thing is that it sometimes post several times in a day.

3. French You Up

Here are my top 5 🏆 of French series on Netflix 🎞 to improve your skills during the lockdown. Have you already seen some of them? What are your favourite French series (or films)? Write in comments 💬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ AU SERVICE DE LA FRANCE 1️⃣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1960, the young André Merlaux becomes a trainee officer in the French secret services and discovers the Kafkaesque universe of French bureaucracy. Just as “Mad Men”, the series is set against the background of historical events, like the cold war, sexual revolution or first nuclear tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2️⃣ DIX POUR CENT 2️⃣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Discover the backstage of show business through the characters working for an acting agency. Each episode stars a great French actor or actress in their own role: Monica Belucci, Isabelle Adjani, Jean Dujardin and others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3️⃣ FAMILY BUSINESS 3️⃣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After finding out that cannabis will be legalised in France (which is not true), Joseph Hazan decides to transform his father’s boucherie (butcher shop) into “beucherie” (la beuh = weed). A kind of a French version of “Breaking Bad”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4️⃣ LA MANTE 4️⃣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A famous female serial killer known as the Mantis comes out from her 25 years long solitary confinement to help the police find her imitator terrorising the streets of Paris. The series was particularly praised by Stephen King himself! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5️⃣ PLAN CŒUR 5️⃣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2 years after the break-up, Elsa still can’t forget her ex. Her friends decide to hire an escort boy to help her move on. Can you guess what happens next? That’s what we like about romantic comedies – you know it from the outset but can’t help watching till the end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @french.you.up ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #netflixseries #netflixmovies #frenchseries #frenchmovie #frenchmovies #frenchteacher #frenchcourse #learnfrench #francais #français #apprendrefrancais #fle #frenchyouup #frenchgrammar #frenchvocabulary #francés #французский #parlerfrancais #parlerfrançais #frenchlesson #frenchlessons #frenchonline #フランス #フランス語勉強中 #frenchclass #frenchclasses #stayhome #frenchwords #французскийязык #languageschool

A post shared by Helping people learn French 🇫🇷 (@french.you.up) on

French.you.up is a really good Instagram account to learn French. Not only does it make use of sounds, illustrations, texts and translations, it also focuses on French grammar.

Also, as the above post shows, the account suggests other French resources that you can use for learning and immersion – for example, Netflix French series.

4. Frenchpod

French Pod 101 promises that you will “start speaking French in a few minutes” – maybe it won’t be that fast, but this French-learning Instagram has it all – video and audio lessons, conversation and grammar charts, picture charts, and useful tips on how to improve your French in general.

5. Livin’French

If learning idioms and colloquial expressions is your thing, then, you will love LivinFrench. It also makes a lot of posts on vocabulary development.

This account also always translates in English and provides audio. You can learn even more on their website livinfrench.

6. Haamidehgram

If you get inspired by inspirational quotes such as the one above, you might as well do so while learning French – posting them on nice pictures, with English translations, is simply what Haamideh is about.

7. Chatpolyglotte

The pretty and cheerful “Certified French Prof” of Chatpolyglotte uses video-recordings of herself to teach and explain French and French grammar.

With as many as 40 comments on some of her posts, you can also learn a lot from the comment section.

8. Easyfrenchvideos

The Youtube channel of Easy French is actually more useful than the Instagram account; nonetheless, this is still a very good French-learning IG account.

As the above video shows, videos of people having conversations on the streets in French, complete with both French and English subtitles, are posted.

9. FrenchschoolTV

The first thing to notice with FrenchschoolTV is that it posts about two times a day.

It posts videos that focus on French grammar and pronunciation. Additionally, every post has some fill-in-the-blanks exercises.

10. French.toons

You love cartoons, especially The Simpsons? It’s your lucky day – this account will help you learn French with The Simpson’s cartoons.

With short clips of the popular cartoon series, first presented in French audio and English subtitles and, afterwards, presented in English with French subtitles, you will learn while getting entertained.
