This video ticks all the right boxes in my book: who doesn’t want to learn French while eating macaroons as you walk down the cobbled streets of Paris? If only it were that easy! Directed by Gustav Johansson and featuring gorgeous typography by Albin Holmqvist, the De Vivre le Langue clip for EF Language Schools takes the iconography of the city and distills it into the basic words that you will need to navigate the French language. The charming atmosphere created by the cinematography of Niklas Johansson is so delightfully Parisian that it will undoubtedly inspire people to rush to French classes toute de suite.

Given my Francophile tendencies, I am biased towards the Paris video, but there are also fantastic videos for Barcelona, Beijing and London that are definitely worth checking out.
