How it works
Smart learning tools. Real-life French.
Watch entertaining French videos including TV shows, music clips, news or comedy - just like you do in your own language! Use our interactive tools to learn new vocabulary and train your ear to real-world spoken French. Ilini helps you acquire French faster while feeling the pulse of francophone life!
Most videos last less than 2 minutes. That is usually just enough vocabulary to digest in one learning session, without feeling overwhelmed.
Depending on your level, turn on French subtitles, English subtitles or both at the same time. We do literal translations and display full sentences so you can compare.
Real-life French often goes fast. Don't worry, just slow it down! The video's characters will sound a little funny, but that will help you make sense of what you hear.
Don't know a word? Click on it to see its dictionary translations and hear its pronunciation. Ilini is pretty clever: it recognizes slang and expressions.
We take notes for you! Every word you click gets added to your vocabulary list. Go back to your list later to rehearse, and remember the videos and phrases they appeared in.
Test your understanding of the videos with multiple-choice questions. Ideal to switch your brain into active mode and make sure you're making progress.
Download video transcripts and translations for some reading, highlighting or note taking. Digital is great, but you can still make use of paper and pen.
Download fill-the-gap exercises, phrase scrambles and other listening and vocabulary activities (with answers). Great for individual learners and for classrooms.
Our platform for teachers: give fun assignments to your class! Ask students to watch a video, take a quiz or complete other tasks, and review their work online.
