Language learners have many options for learning French online, including Babbel and the BBC's Languages section. In addition to in-browser options, many free apps, such as Duolingo, can help users learn French.
Online French courses take different approaches to teaching, so language learners should try several to figure out what works best for their learning style. The BBC, for example, uses online video learning, while both Duolingo and Babbel provide more practice-based learning for learners of varying levels, with vocabulary matching, translation to and from French, and speaking the language out loud. These two programs have both browser interfaces and mobile apps and require creating an account.
