Try these newsletters to keep you on track with your French learning

Having one regularly drop into your inbox should help improve your French reading skills

Subscribing to newsletters is a great way to improve your language skills with minimum effort - the newsletters will simply drop into your email inbox each day, week or month. 

There are endless options to choose from but the good thing is there is undoubtedly something out there for everyone. 

Of course, finding them is often half the battle, so we have rounded up some recommendations to help you improve your language skills through newsletter reading. 

1. Coffee Break Languages

Coffee Break Languages is a great learning resource - they offer courses, podcasts and even books that help to make language learning interesting and manageable. 

The company covers lots of different languages, but when you sign up for the newsletter, which you will receive every Friday, you can choose which language you want to focus on. 

The newsletter is like a mini language lesson, with tips and tricks for improving your French.

2. French Teacher Carlito 

French Teacher Carlito is a big name on TikTok and his language-learning videos have racked up more than 6.2 million likes.

His weekly newsletter is written in French with English translations, meaning you can compare the two passages. 

Previous newsletters have covered everything from common errors and debunking common language-learning myths to the most common verbs and expressions of the week.

3. Brief.me

Praised for providing a neutral approach to the news, the Brief.me newsletter provides a daily summary of the headlines that day.

It aims to combat fake news and with a free, 30-day trial you can test the waters before subscribing.

The newsletter is part of the ‘slow media’ movement, which means the focus is on bringing quality content rather than producing quick online hits.

4. Curaterz 

This newsletter is aimed at those who are ‘curious’. 

Sent out three times a week, each new issue offers a recommendation, whether it be an album, a book, a documentary or a good place to eat or drink. 

They also have a ‘best of’ section and a city-guide section which has top tips for cities both in and outside France.

5. Musiktips

This newsletter tells short anecdotes of famous singers and the stories behind their songs. 

They mix up the style, genre and decade of musicians, meaning there is likely to be something to please everyone. 

 

This is part of the general Artips platform, so if you like the Musiktips, you can also subscribe to their sport, arts, science and environment editions.

6. France Culture 

Radio France offers a selection of newsletters about French culture - these range from daily to monthly options.

Unlike the language learning newsletters, these are aimed at native French speakers so are a good idea if you want to test your French. 

You can also pair the newsletters with listening to the France Culture radio shows and podcasts.

7. Museum newsletters 

It seems unfair to pick just one, so instead, I will point you in the general direction of museum newsletters. 

Whatever your favourite French museum, they are likely to have a newsletter that you can subscribe to. 

As well as practising your French, you can also learn about upcoming events and exhibitions that you may have otherwise missed out on. 

Simply search the name of your favourite museum alongside ‘newsletter’ to find out which ones you can subscribe to.

8. French Alliance newsletters

If you are involved with your local French Alliance, make sure you are receiving their newsletters to stay up to date with what is going on while improving your French. 

This is a good way to stay in touch with life in France even if you no longer live there, and Alliances often provide a sense of community for Francophones and France lovers, wherever you are in the world.
