    197: Quand l’Afrique a gagné la Coupe du Monde

    Our lesson this time goes back to a joke made by chat-show host Trevor Noah last summer, following the World cup. The only thing is, some people didn’t find his joke funny at all, not least the French ambassador in Washington. So what was it all about, again? Let’s start, as usual, with a conversation to put things in context.

    196: Le Président Macron réinstaurera le Service national

    Our conversation this time focuses on President Macron's plan to reintroduce national service in France. Some people are wondering if he is the right man to decide on such matters, given that he himself is the first French president not to have done military service.

Good

This podcast is great for intermediates. Beginners should go and learn basic verbs/conjugations first, etc. (I recommend Duolingo as a place to start).

I’m not sure here but I assume there are no transcripts for these lessons? I play the episodes in half-speed as I’m still learning how to detect subtle phonetic differences between words but then I hear words that I don’t recognise.

As someone who is still only intermediate, I find it difficult to estimate how some words are spelt based on how they’re pronounced, so at times, I’m left not knowing the word and how to research it. I feel like a transcript or a glossary would really help!

En tout cas, good podcasts!

Excellent

Decided to write a review as some other reviewers are confused about where to find the lessons’ transcripts - they are all on the LFBP website, very nicely done, clear layout, covering the dialogs, extra examples, all new words used in a lesson, and exercises. The answers to the exercises are all on the website too.

I first started learning French with LFBP back in 2010, but didn’t continue. Now came back to the podcasts and transcripts during the isolation time, and am really enjoying it. A lesson a day, everyday something new. Thank you, LFBP team :-)
