Like Le Figaro, Buzzfeed France isn’t a French learning account but it the posts are in French so technically, yes you can learn the language by scrolling through the posts when you feel like practicing your French. The posts are super funny and easy to understand so you can stay entertained for a few minutes without feeling guilty. You will surely relate to some of the hilarious comic strips they post and you’re friends will be jealous that you understand what they say but that you have to explain it to them.
