Here you can find some useful resources to help with your languages and to get you properly immersed in them!

Websites

The French History Podcast -- This is great for finding out a bit more about French history!
CultureThèque -- Basically a MASSIVE library of French stuff (books, shows etc.) all free for download once you've signed up. Woah.

Youtube

Linguisticae -- French linguistics dude! Yay! He talks a bit fast at times though, so prepare yourself!
Easy French -- Great way to listen to some converstaional French, with subtitles in both French and English!

Singers

Barbara Pravi -- Absolutely snubbed at ESC 2021. I'm livid. Anyways, Pravi is a GODDESS - really nice chanson réaliste-esque music, wonderful voice, great lyrics. Squee. My top picks: Voilà, CHAIR, Le jour se lève.
Gjon's Tears -- If it weren't for the fact that Pravi was snubbed, I'd say this dude was. His two songs are full-on bops, but like, smooth yet cruncy PBJ-like bops. Wonderful.
Angèle -- SLAYYY. Angèle has some amazing pop songs which aren't all about love (score!) I love her voice and her vibes - #onfleek. My top picks: Ta Reine, Flou, Perdus.
Madame Monsieur -- Watched them at ESC 2018, and quite frankly, YES. They have some bopping pop songs to nod your head to. My top picks: Mercy, Ne me laisse pas, Comme un voleur.

Books

Les Misérables -- So, I haven't finished reading this (it's kinda long... like, 1,500 pages), BUT from what I've read, it's amazing. Hugo is such a liquidy (??) writer, very smooth. That sounded weird. ANYway, it's worth reading!
Un si long silence -- Book by Sarah Abitbol, a former French ice skater. Simply but well written, and had a huge impact on the ice skating world in terms of problems with coaches. Really would recommend.

Movies

Portrait de la jeune fille en feu -- Yes. YES. Genuine masterpiece - the way Sciamma uses colours and painting metaphors makes the artist in me very very happy. The two main actresses also have wonderful chemistry and are absolute cinammon rolls.
Les Intouchables -- A classic. The right blend of humour and The Big Sad which sheds light on social differences, but also the beauty of a good human connection (I feel like that was too sappy?? Ehhh hey ho)

Websites

Goethe -- Legit the Holy Grail of German Learning. Some really good stuff about German culture, along with exercises and opportunities. Yeet.

Youtube

Simplicissimus -- Loads of stuff on different areas of German culture and controversies surrounding them. German is said at a pretty nice pace, plus there are pictures to help you figure out what's goin' on!
Easy German -- Great way to listen to some converstaional German, with subtitles in both German and English!
Mr Wissen2Go -- A bunch of videos on various different topics, and he has another channel solely for history (Mr W2G Geschichte) - very useful!
Sommers Weltliteratur to go -- Absolutely hilarious. Very quick recaps of German classics, as well as classics from around the world, all while using Playmobil figures. He speaks a tad fast though, so beware!

Singers

Amy Wald -- Amy is, in all honesty, a bop. A smooth bop. Her vibes are on point and the lyrics pop and lock like there's no tomorrow. My top picks: Unfertig, Sag mir was du denkst.
Wilhelmine -- Some really cool pop songs that just vibe, y'know? Great for dad dancing! My top picks: Solange du dich bewegst, Du.
Sarah Connor -- YEET. This woman has some amazing schlager-esque songs which just put you in a good mood. My top picks: Vincent, Wie schön du bist.
Adel Tawil -- I feel like I'm saying this a lot, but he bops, like, mega-bops. He has a nice variety of fast and slower songs, and his voice is pretty cool. My top picks: Tu m'appelles (French German crossover? French German crossover.), Ist da jemand.

Books

Der Tod in Venedig -- Okay, so like, the story's a tad weird. A 50ish year old German dude stalks a 14ish year old Polish dude in Venice. Cool. BUT, it genuinely is cool and well written - very relevant to Covid times as well!
Die Brücke vom goldenen Horn -- Ahhh this is really cool - the words are so... vibrant? Yeah, vibrant. Plus it gives an interesting insight into the "Gastarbeiter" of the 60s!
Der Steppenwolf -- YES. YES. YES. This is a BEAUTIFUL book - it really struck a lil' chord of mine. Very well written, and a great message to take away from it. YES.

Movies

Das Leben der Anderen -- A classic. This is genuinely so good?? Many suspense, very GDR. It really gives a nice perspective of the Stasi as well.
Sophie Scholl -- Oooh psych. This bops so much, the use of colours is great, the tension is on fleek. A great story about a German resistance group during WWII. Woah.

Websites

Easy Spanish -- Great way to listen to some converstaional Spanish, with subtitles in both Spanish and English!

Singers

Alvaro Soler -- What an absolute bopper. His songs are like your typical Spanish pop, but in a good way - like a feel-good kind of vibe. My top picks: Sofia, Si te vas, Magia.
Rosalía -- KILL IT YOUR HIGHNESS. Rosalía is just great, her voice is SO POWERFUL and she effortly mixes Spanish sounds with some sick rap/pop tunes. My top picks: Malamente, Bagdad, Di mi nombre.

Books

La diversión de Martina -- So this isn't, like, the most uhhhm complex read? The storyline's pretty basic ngl, very cliché. HOWEVER, it's a good simple read to widen your vocab and grammar knowledge, pluuus the illustrator is my favourite artist (Laia Lopez - look her up, she is AMAZING)
Short Stories in Spanish -- Again, not very complex, but it comes complete with a running vocab list and exercises, and really gets you thinking about how to, um, Spanish??

Websites

Vocabulous -- My sibling website! You can test yourself on Latin A-Level vocab and grammar, and there's other stuff as well. Click here to go directly to useful resources for Latin.

Websites

Lingthusiasm -- YESSSSSS. This podcast is brilliant! It's chillaxed but informative and just great. Pluuus one of the hosts is Gretchen McCulloch (look at Books to see why that's actually important...)
IPA Chart -- Yay, sounds! Brush up on your knowledge of IPA characters with what is quite frankly my best friend.

Youtube

Linguisticae -- French linguistics dude! Yay! He talks a bit fast at times though, so prepare yourself!

Books

Because Internet -- By Gretchen McCulloch uwu! This book is wonderful, very chill, but boiiiii does it have some cool ideas. And MEMES! IT ANALYSES MEMES! Great for literally anyone, even if you're not that into linguistics.
Language Instinct -- Squeee. This basically builds on some of the Glorious Noam Chomsky's ideas, exploring the idea that language is as innate to us as chirping is to birds. Really cool!
Language: The Cultural Tool -- If you read Language Insinct, you HAVE to read this too. It essentially gives the contra-argument to Chomsky and Pinker's ideas, and is very insightful!
The Etymologicon -- Etymologies! Yay! Love it. It's really funny, and it gives you a bunch of etymologies that you can weird out your friends (if you have any) with! Did you know butterflies basically comes from a word meaning butter-pooper??
Empires of the World: A Language History of the World -- A really interesting book on how languages have interwined with each other and how the social environment has an effect on the durability of a language. Quite dense at times, especially if you're unfamiliar with a certain culture, but still really cool!
