10 Essential French YouTubers to Help You Learn French. Looking for some French YouTubers to make the most of the time you will inevitably spend on YouTube? Here's 10 fantastique channels to get you started. Lindsay Does Languages Blog


Norman is without a doubt my favourite French YouTuber. He takes his time to make great quality content that’s entertaining, and guaranteed to give you some new slang vocab along the way. If he’s speaking too fast for you, try Les Apple Addict, which I think was one of the first I saw of his a few years ago now, and has English subtitles if you click ‘CC’.



Shortly after discovering Norman, I discovered Cyprien. Probably in the sidebar straight after watching Les Apple Addict for the first time. I then realised that while the trend in the UK tends to be for females talking to themselves in a room, in France it was all about les mecs. My favourite one doesn’t involve a wide-angle lens and a ranty topic though. Even those new to French can understand the idea behind Les Pub vs La Vie.



Andy is a lady! There doesn’t seem to be as many big French females on YouTube but there are a handful, and Andy is one of them. Her videos often follow a ‘vs’ idea, so if you’re not feeling too confident with your French, you’ll at least get the idea. Try this one to start.



Andy is not the only lady making comedy YouTube videos. Natoo is also up there as one of the most popular French YouTubers. Natoo’s channel is a little more varied with travel vlogs, sketches, and translations of Blurred Lines. The video is a great start as it’s quite visual so you won’t need to understand every word to know what’s going on.




Seb la Frite speaks a little slower than some others in the list I find, which is good for beginners with listening to longer audio. He also discusses music a lot, which makes him a great choice if you’re after some new French music artists to listen to. An all round good choice to get started with watching YouTube in French.



Like many other YouTubers, Jeremy asks those questions we’re either too afraid to ask and addresses those pressing issues we had no idea bugged us until we watched a video about it on YouTube. And he’s pretty good at it.



Ok, so there are more girls than just Andy and Natoo. With lookbooks and makeup tutorials, it’s not something I would watch personally but Sananas seems a good option if you’re a fan of that kind of video.



Mais oui! Tu est jolie! Despite the sad name, Jenesuispasjolie looks to be another good girly option. Now if you’ll excuse me I must go and powder my nose. If you’re a teacher looking for videos for your teenage students, then her Draw My Life is a good place to start. Léa speaks clearly and describes her family and friends throughout the video with the visual aid of the whiteboard. Come to think of it, wouldn’t this make a great homework task for students?!



Horia covers all the things you’d expect from a self-proclaimed ‘youtubeuse beauté’ – beauty, style, advice. But she’s also not afraid to have fun and poke a little fun at the bizarre world of YouTube, such as in this video.



This list wouldn’t be complete without a cooking channel. I think I’ve found the French equivalent to Barry Lewis in FastGoodCuisine. And he makes Oreos. And other things, but let’s just rewind a minute. He has a video telling you how to make Oreos. I think that’s a good place to end this list because I’m pretty sure you’re off to the kitchen now.
