TikTok has quickly become a fantastic place to improve your language learning skills! The quick, usually daily, videos make them easily consumable and a fantastic way to consistently learn. Here are some of our account recommendations!
Linguisticdiscovery, known as Danny Hieber, is the perfect account for someone interested in overall languages and specifically linguistics. He does not focus on one language, or even one language-family specifically, and also creates many videos regarding less spoken languages like the native languages found in North America.
Famous for his fake … language series, Diego Rivas takes a much more fun approach to general language learning. He does seem to have more videos focusing on Spanish and Latino culture, but also has videos about Arabic, Creole, Portuguese, and a whole lot more. If you are looking for a light-hearted/funny creator about languages, Rivas is perfect!
Getting into more specific languages, atfrenchies is the perfect light-hearted approach to French language learning. While they will not be teaching you how to conjugate French verbs, or explaining tenses, they are perfect for learning quick fun facts about French, and countless skits regarding the language. They won’t replace your textbook, but are a great taste of French, with uploads coming daily.
Where atfrenchies is mostly a comedy channel, encorefrenchlessons is a fantastic resource for really learning French. While also containing some skits, encorefrenchlessons makes videos about masculine vs. feminine in French. This TikTok account also has a fantastic French Instagram account with really easy-to-follow vocab and grammar posts.
Breaking away from French, germandan is the perfect TikTok for learning German. Germandan takes a more fun approach to learning German and is friendly for German learners and people who are just interested in German. He has videos about numbers in German to how to pronounce German car brands.
