I personally find this way of learning to be rather interesting as it uses a very old, and kind of humorous now, TV show to teach you French. The show is called “French in Action” or “Francês em Ação”. Each episode starts off pretty slow and uses basic vocabulary and phrases. The idea is that by using simple plots and dialogue, you’ll be able to pick up more of the language naturally rather than by intense studying. It’s probably not for everyone but just watching the old videos can cause a big of nostalgia. If you want something more modern you can try some dialogue examples and practice video.
