Hey there! My name is Max Lalanne and I’m the creator of News in French. Quite simply, it’s a daily newsletter, written in French, with smart, succinct summaries of the news and other interesting info to start each morning with a little more français. It goes out at 7am from Monday to Thursdays, right before you go to class or work. And it’s completely free.

Whether you’re a student, a teacher, or just learning French, News in French can help you improve in an easy, fun, and actually useful way. I guarantee that when you read the newsletter, you’ll a) learn something about the world you didn’t know before and b) learn some French words or phrases you didn’t know before.  Or your money back. (Wait, it’s free…)

I strive to make News in French appropriate for all ages – it’s even read in classrooms! To do so, I stay away from breaking news headlines on politics, for example, in favor of more in-depth, productive content that actually provides lasting educational value.

Beyond your inbox, the newsletter is posted here on our website, complete with helpful annotations that provide definitions of key vocabulary and phrases to enhance your understanding. Ceci est un exemple — just hover or click on the red text.

News in French is growing rapidly and expansion plans are in the works. Have suggestions for the newsletter? Sponsorship questions? Shoot me an email: max@newsinfrench.org.
