I am trying to learn French. Can anyone suggest videos where you can learn French for free? A brief search throws up videos from Americans who have studied French for only a couple years. I am trying to learn from someone who has a genuine French accent. Any ideas?
If you are really serious (meaning you can stick with it), I suggest French In Action (FIA), which can be found on YouTube and other places, including here at learner.org. It consists of a total of 52 half-hour episodes, for 26 hours of language immersion. It is well worth going through them all.
If you know absolutely no French, you should look into Rosetta Stone to get acquainted with the language. Unfortunately, it is not free. Even with Rosetta Stone, I recommend FIA.
