Updated: Nov 18, 2020

Music has magic powers: It awakens various emotions and makes us feel more alive. Have you ever listened to French music? If not, read this article and find out what you're missing.

Why should you listen to French music?

  1. The French language has a reputation as a romantic language. Add melody to the romance and discover how French music can really touch your soul.

  2. Learn about the culture of French-speaking countries. Have you heard of Serge Gainsbourg? Edith Piaf? Joe Dassin? They are just some of the singers who shaped the French culture. Learning a language is not only about studying grammar. Learning French culture will help you understand the language on a higher level.

  3. Another good reason to listen to French music - you will improve your French-speaking skills. When you like a specific song, you will likely try to sing it. To do that, you have to know the lyrics. By learning lyrics, you're killing two birds with one stone (my apologies to all the vegans):

a) you can sing a song and

b) you're improving your French language skills.
