so have you read any French yet??? I just ask since your last 2 posts don't match the name of the thread. I recommend who is she on lingq. It has translation, notes, and the transcription. https://www.lingq.com/fr/learn/fr/web/course/20000

I eased into French by watching my american shows with French subs (I have no desire to watch french dubs of american shows and I don't read the French subs intensely. I just use it to learn/notice whatever I can easily learn/notice.), doing some anki reviews of cards that were generated from french subs of american shows
via subs2srs (no audio, just french and english text from subtitles so the cards are definitely not perfect. Sometimes I used deepl to generate a translation so I can have another reference besides the original English dialogue) and morphman (it orders the cards in i+1 order which is really helpful have you have 30,000 + cards !), going through who is she lingq, and currently I'm watching season 1 of Gossip Girl with French subs so I can learn from the dub since the transcript of the French dub is available. My anki settings are extremely lax and I cap the number of reviews since I still get the benefits without spending a lot of time on anki.
They also have mini-stories for French but I never got interested in going through them since I'd rather read something else. I think I might have felt inclined to go through them if I had no foundation in Spanish which gives me foundation in French to some extent.https://www.lingq.com/en/learn/en/web/c ... es-courses
By the way lingq also has The Stranger by Albert Camus with the translation and audio. I plan on reading/listening to that once I understand daily conversation French on Gossip Girl.
