Essential Podcast for All Learners

As a French second language learner who picked up French in high school, I wish I had known about this podcast earlier. It’s perfect for those who are sitting VCE exams or similar. A clear short and interesting text followed by a light yet thorough review of the passage with grammar points or the hosts reflections.

For someone who is now refreshing their grasp of the French language, I cannot recommend this enough

Amazing

This podcast is amazing, being able to understand the phrases rather than just memorising expressions really helps

Love this podcast

I started learning french last year and while I love it, I have found it very challenging. Then I discovered coffee break french! This podcast has helped me so much. I listen to the podcasts while running every day and my vocab, pronunciation and understanding of french grammar has improved so much.
