I’m currently trying to become fluent in french. I have a GCSE in french and a pretty secure basic knowledge but I’m aiming to become fluent next year whilst living in England. I’ve begun doing about 30mins- 1 hour a day of grammar and vocab which I’m actually finding enjoyable! The bit I’m struggling with is how to ‘immerse’ myself whilst living at home because I don’t enjoy any french entertainment.
Well I think my first problem is that I can’t find much,I have Netflix and Amazon prime (and I don’t have a VPN or whatever it’s called) but I really can’t find any movie/series that’s both french and half decent?
(Although I did enjoy SKAM France on YouTube ,that french people will probably know, however it’s only available for non-french viewers on YouTube up to season 6)
Tbf maybe I’m just fussey as I don’t even watch many series in English, for reference I’m a 17 year old girl who is not a fan of anything horror but any other recommendations- nature, crime, romance, teen drama, tragedy would be appreciated.
However I do watch a lot of YouTube - my favourite youtubers are travel youtubers such as backpacking bananas (I specifically like backpackers or van life or anything off grid) and studytubers like Unjaded jade, I also don’t mind the odd clothing haul... I just like a good authentic youtuber who vlogs their life!
So any films/series/ youtubers or even podcasts recommendations along with places to find them please

‘The hookup plan’ or in French ‘plan cœur’ is a rom com TV show on Netflix. I enjoyed the first season but wasn’t too sure about the second one lol but it’s good for learning still I guess

‘The bureau’ or ‘les bureau des légendes’ is a TV show about the French intelligence service - I loved this one it’s on Amazon prime.

The other one I have watched moves into horror territory a bit so maybe you won’t enjoy it but it is essentially I crime show. Watch the trailer before you start maybe? It’s on Netflix and called ‘The forest’/‘la forêt’.

‘Les Intouchables’ is a French comedy film as well on Amazon prime.

I have definitely watched more but I can’t think of any more off the top of my head lol so I’ll definitely put some more down if I remember.

Apart from that, I would really recommend finding some French music you like and listen to that!

Edit: listening to French radio is also really good for improving your listening skills but perhaps not as enjoyable as watching films and listening to music lol. I use the franceinfo app for that though if you’re interested

I liked The Bureau on Amazon prime, kinda like a detective one

I find french songs quite hard to decipher but here’s a link to a decent french radio station with different channels you can pick (only 40% of songs on french radio have to be in french, so you could pick the 100% french option if you don’t want English music mixed in )http://www.rfm.fr/player
