French learners usually find challenging listening to real life conversations. Native French speakers talk really fast and don’t always articulate well. If you don’t have the occasion to practice your French on a regular basis, music can help tremendously. Not only listening to lyrics can help you memorize new vocabulary and improve your comprehension, it is also a real guidance to get the right pronunciation.

In addition, listening to current francophone artists give you insights of the French culture, how artist express themselves and what subjects they address. It’s also interesting to analyze these little cultural differences like nuances, expressions that make a language learning process fascinating.

For our second edition of N’oubliez pas les paroles !, I’ve made a short list of relevant artists (some of them are French or French Canadian) and selected videos with French and English subtitles.

Have fun!
