7. Daily French @DailyFrench_
🇲🇫🔥Theme : on the road/sur la route
— Daily French (@DailyFrench_) February 12, 2021
If you are looking for a French twitter account where you can learn in bits, but very regularly, Daily French is your best bet.
The French-teaching account promises to tweet a new French word every hour, and it does live up to that promise.
As you see above, it publishes a new (anchor) word, then it adds three other related words that are likely to be used in the same scenario. It also adds the right pronoun for each.
“Nous avons traversé la cour du château à vélo et sommes arrivées sur un beau promontoire dominant la vieille ville, le lac et les Alpes.”
— French Today 🇫🇷 (@frenchToday) September 30, 2020
This is the Twitter of what is a very robust website. It has free audiobooks, French placement tests, one-on-one French Skype lessons, and an app.

13. Learn Quick French @quickfrench
Ouvrir- To open https://t.co/LEmAMjLlgM
— Learn Quick French (@quickfrench) February 9, 2021
This Twitter French account is a very interesting one. This is because of its approach to teaching, which involves quote-retweeting many other Twitter French-Learning accounts.
As you see above, it teaches French words and phrases by building on existing posts from other pages. Therefore, every post is like a two-in-one learning – it’s own tweet and the retweeted one.
It’s major advantage is that, once you discover this account, you will easily find many other Twitter accounts to learn French.
14. Master Your French @myourfrench
— Master Your French 🇫🇷 (@myourfrench) February 12, 2021
French is notoriously difficult to pronounce and hear, as lots of alphabets are silent; therefore, words are also pronounced together. As a result, it’s possible for you to be able to read French well, and speak it to some extent, while still struggling to hear and pronounce certain words correctly – at least, that’s been my own experience.
If you can relate with that and want to improve your listening and pronunciation, Master Your French promises to help you do just that.
15. Master Your French @frenchwthmarion
— FrenchWithMarion (@FrenchWthMarion) January 14, 2021
One of the most common posts you’d find on their Twitter account is like the one above – they’ll post a sentence with some errors and ask you to find and correct the error.
French with Marion has a very good Instagram version, too.
16. Marie – Just French It @JustFrenchIt
