French Daily Practice Routine


Practice every day to improve your French

Are you looking for ideas to improve your French tous les jours de la semaine? Here is a list of ways you can work on your French every day of the week. Use these ideas to create daily plans that you can get excited about. Going to a class or learning with a program is a great start, but practicing French a few times a week isn’t enough when you really want to make progress.

I give my French students @ LLL French Academy these ideas to provide structure and diversity on a daily basis while working through my program for self-learners. It’s important to make a schedule and practice a little every day when possible.


I’ve included ten activities to choose from every day of the week. I’m not suggesting you do all of them every day! Choose activities from the daily lists that you have time for, that you will enjoy, and that will diversify your learning experience. Much of what’s on the lists is free, and all of the LLL activities are included in my French program with the exception of the daily planner (see video below).

LUNDI

MARDI

MERCREDI

JEUDI

VENDREDI

SAMEDI

DIMANCHE

You don’t have to spend hours and hours on French every day unless you have the time and you enjoy it. You’ll be surprised at the difference even 15-30 minutes a day can make! If you want to learn French or improve your level, you have to really work at it. This may seem overwhelming and it’s hard to know where to begin. This is why it’s important to set a weekly schedule and stay organized. Download your French learning schedule and decide what you want to commit to daily. It’s ok if you can only fit in one or two activities. Print a new schedule every week, and check off what you want to do. Mix up the lessons and activities to keep it interesting.

Daily French Conversation – À la Boulangerie



👇 Scroll down to watch À la Boulangerie and to sign up for free learning resources 👇


French Dialogue – À la Boulangerie

Watch and listen to see how daily conversations flow in French. The theme of this dialogue is À la Boulangerie. As you listen to the conversation you will improve your comprehension, and you will learn lots of new vocabulary words and expressions. This is really the way French people speak, though it may never have shown up in your textbook!

Click here to get all of the FREE learning resources that accompany this lesson. Once you click, you’ll see an option to purchase the full course, BUT if you scroll all the way down, you can get the resources for boulangerie by clicking on the preview.

À la boulangerie – Buying bread

  • You’re in charge of getting bread for dinner. You stop in the bakery and ask for a baguette. Be sure to say if you like your baguette very cooked or not. When it is time to pay, explain that you only have a €50 bill. They don’t have enough change. What happens next? Will you decide to buy something else or will you leave?

The speech is not too fast in this video, and all of the words are written on the screen in French with English translations. The grammar in this conversation is quite varied, and some of it is definitely upper-level. However, French learners at any level can learn a lot and benefit from this conversation through context. I think you’ll find the English translations to be most helpful, and you will see how it is nearly impossible to give direct translations from French to English.




Once you’ve signed up for the free preview @LLL, follow these steps:

Step 1: Watch the video and read along as you listen to the conversation. When you don’t understand a word, just look down at the English translation. Be sure to take notes! It’s ok if you don’t understand all of the grammar. Just try to pay close attention to how the sentences are put together and how we do it differently in English.

Step 2: Listen to the audio recording without looking at the words and translations. Do you remember what the words mean? You can use this recording to practice your listening skills no matter where you are!

Step 3: Print out the fill in the blank exercise, and write in the missing words as you listen to the recording. An answer key is provided. Once you have done this a few times, I challenge you to get out a blank sheet of paper and try writing it all! Just have that pause button ready!
