Are you a Francophile who can’t get enough of all things French? Or maybe, like us, you are looking for a fun way to improve your French language skills? We’ve previously shared our love of French films and TV in general, and how we used subtitled French movies to help us on the our language learning journey. Because of this, we were excited to discover France Channel – a French streaming service combining some of our favorite past times.
To share in our excitement we have a freebie for HIP readers to help you experience the best of French culture even while in the States.
