School non, streaming oui

A poll for Berlitz France Licorne found that 72% of French people don’t think their English lessons at school helped them to speak the language with any real fluency, while 40% don’t think the English they learned at school has served them well as adults.

However, 56% say that watching shows on streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube are more useful for learning English than the lessons they’d taken. This number goes up for those aged between 18 and 24, where a whopping 77% attribute their English language learning to watching these services. This group also cites social media platforms, including TikTok, Twitter and Twitch, as effective for learning English.

It’s perhaps no surprise then, that 50% of French people over all claim that watching TV has helped them with learning English. It seems that the old goggle box is a bit of a babble box too.
