RealFrench | French Grammar Games and Vocabulary Exercises 7 Awesome Songs to Help You Learn French with Music It was my first French class, and I broke out into a cold sweat. Everyone in the class knew some French, except for me—I didn’t speak a single word. It was hard to stay interested in a class where I could barely understand anything! It was a bleak situation, but luckily there was a turning point. I finally started paying attention and actually taking an interest in the language—when we started learning French through music in class. Back then, we were learning about emotions. While I don’t remember all the words now (it started out with these two unforgettable phrases, Je suis content, je suis surpris. – I am happy, I am surprised.), I do remember the melody, and after that exercise, words like “content,” “triste” (sad), “surpris” (surprised) and “fâché” (angry) stuck with me after that. From then on, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that I became a lifelong fan of the language, and I grew to love all aspects of French, from the linguistic to the cultural aspect of it. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3.

Det mörka Paris var en gigantisk fabrik | SvD Bilden av Paris som lyxens, flärdens, nöjenas, gourméernas, konstens och kulturens huvudstad är långt ifrån ny. Redan under Napoleontiden och under Restaurationen (1814–30) sågs Paris som ett glittrande paradis, som navet i handeln med lyxartiklar. Med sina glastäckta passager – skådeplatsen för den första gasbelysningen – sina breda boulevarder kantade av flotta restauranger, eleganta varuhus och butiker, uteserveringar, teatrar och nöjespalats, var Paris, med Walter Benjamins ord, ”1800-talets huvudstad”. Det har dock hela tiden funnits ett annat Paris. I bokens första del, ”Utkristalliseringen av en myt”, redogör Gribaudi för hur den gamla, delvis medeltida, stadskärnan och dess befolkning betraktades av de kulturella och intellektuella eliterna, av författare, konstnärer, politiker och myndigheter under 1800-talets första hälft. En av de ytterst få författare som enligt Gribaudi inte späder på mytbildningen om arbetarstaden Paris är Balzac.

Perhaps you'll find something on here you hadn't seen before. I've tried to sort these out by level (Novice-Intermediate, and Intermediate-Advanced). Authentic resources can be most difficult to find for novice learners, as the content is often too advanced for their level.
