As a recent languages graduate, I’m always on the lookout for great French TV shows or films to enjoy.
I love knowing that there are fun, enjoyable ways to keep up my language skills, and foreign-language shows or films can be a very interesting insight into another culture, language, or country.
There are so many shows I love to watch to keep up my French and even a few in other languages that I really enjoy.
I think watching a show in a different language (with subtitles, of course!) can really help to immerse you in a language, culture, or place you’ve never been- and I’ve learned so much about France and French lifestyle simply by watching a few interesting shows.
Below, I’ve put together 4 foreign-language shows I love, and I’d love to hear all your suggestions in the comments
‘Call My Agent’
My favourite French show at the moment has to be ‘Call My Agent’. It’s all about a French acting agency, where agents help French stars with anything they require- from baby-sitting to sorting out contracts.
It’s got a fantastic mixture of Paris glamour and realistic characters that make it a fun and exciting watch.
I really recommend giving this one a try if you’re interested in French film culture, and if you want to find characters that are funny and relatable.
‘The Hook-Up Plan’
I love all the funny and crazy situations the characters get themselves into, and it’s a fantastic show to pick up some Parisian slang words.
Originally in Spanish, this is another show full of fun storylines and close female friendships.
I’ve not watched all of this series yet, but I love the variety of situations and characters, and it’s a very sex-positive, open show.
‘A Very Secret Service’
I love this show on Netflix, and it’s the perfect mixture of comedy, history, and action!
All about the French secret service after the Second World War, this show is full of glamorous female characters, political intrigue, and thrilling action.
It’s funny, and silly, and I really recommend watching it for strange jokes and crazy plotlines.
