Hello everyone, I am 24, with no military background or training
Considering to enlist this year (either on summer or autumn)
Im doing some pre-entry training and learning French and how to swim
mostly concerned about the French, any idea where i can learn the essentials online?

I will also have to cold turkey smoking, but im not too worried about that
any tips on how to get ready for what awaits?

I'm also a hard gainer, 67kg currently and im about 180cm

Hi Ernold and welcome to the forum.
What exactly do you mean by being a hard gainer?
Most go for DuoLingo to learn French. I personally use https://www.learnwitholiver.com/
They are both for free, Learn with Oliver, is OK because it sends me a phrase a day which when you open it up it breaks down the sentences and there are games etc, I don't really know anything about DuoLingo, but most of the people on here use it.

Concentrate on getting in as there will be enough time to choose your regiment later. You may be asked which regiment you would like while you are in Aubagne, however no-one takes any notice of that.
When you are in castel, you will be taught all about the different regiments.

My video which I'll be bringing out later on today will be called REP fever. The video is a hommage to people like Mark W. who jumped into Kolwezi in 1978, Today, 18th of May starts operation Bonite or otherwise known as Leopard.
