Amazing

I think it’s great for French learners. I just have one note. I wish you guys could have a podcast for more experienced language learners. Like in all French. J’aime beaucoup cette app et les opportunités que vous nous donnent. J’ai parlé le français canadien de maternelle, alors c’est fait 9 années de français. J’ai un peu de difficultés avec les compréhensions d’écoute et cette podcast m’aide. Merci beaucoup!
