Content consumption is ever evolving, and TikTok's surge during the pandemic brought about significant shifts. Back then, some people hopped on it, showcasing their dance moves to trending tunes, leaving the uninitiated with the impression that TikTok was solely about that. However, diving into the platform reveals a myriad of diverse content. Today, TikTok reigns as the top platform, even outstripping Google in Gen Z’s groups' search trends.

Nevertheless, TikTok isn't just for entertainment; it's a fantastic tool for honing your French skills, delving into Francophone cultures, offering invaluable travel advice, and so much more.

With this in mind, I'm thrilled to share some of my favorite Francophone content to keep you in the loop. But before we jump in, I want to mention that we're also active on TikTok. Follow us to stay ahead of the curve and catch up on our team's latest updates and activities!

Gastronomy

DimancheCook - As a certified pastry chef from École Ducasse, he tantalizes taste buds with an array of delectable sweet and savory recipes. From mesmerizing ASMR videos to lively voiceovers in fast-paced French, his content offers an engaging culinary experience for all senses.

Mamie et Math - Having grown up close to my grandmas and great-grandmas, I find all their videos delightful. They cook together, sharing cherished family recipes, while also offering glimpses into their lives in a fun and lighthearted manner, embracing the French 'joie de vivre'.

Totocuistot - His 1-minute videos showcase quick, easy, and delicious recipes. If you're someone who prefers visual guidance while cooking and likes to follow along with written instructions, I recommend watching his videos first and jotting down his directions, as they're presented solely in video format.

Miscellaneous

Yanntoutcourt - Are you French but have forgotten some of your history lessons? Let Yann, a history teacher, jog your memory with intriguing topics. You'll not only recall forgotten facts but also uncover fascinating insights into Francophone culture. Plus, for those who aren't French, Yann's content offers a unique window into French history and culture.

Grossomodo - This adorable account depicts imaginary situations inspired by everyday scenes on the streets of Paris. It's incredibly creative and has sparked my imagination to do the same, even when I come across unusual scenes in Boston.

The more French content you consume and the more Francophone creators you follow, the better the algorithm will understand your preferences and suggest similar accounts and videos. So, yes, you might find yourself scrolling down and perhaps spending more time there than you'd like to admit. But hey, at least you're gaining insights into Francophone culture and probably picking up some new French words and slang along the way!
