Duo French Podcast is 🔥🔥🔥

Just wanted to say thank you for doing the podcasts. I've earned my Duo trophy in two languages now (Spanish, then French) and I just finished listening to the first few podcasts in French.

I really like the style of the podcasts and how there's a little bit of English mixed in. It definitely helps me to not get frustrated as well as keep enjoying the story without having to pause and translate the words that I don't know.

The content of the stories in the podcasts is also really interesting. I never knew about the process to serve baguettes to the president of France for a year and admittedly, I did get a little teary eyed at the end of that podcast when the mother of the main character finally approved of her son and his crazy passion to run a boulangerie.

I've traveled enough to know that it's really important to be able to at least say basic phrases in the language of the country you're visiting. I've also traveled enough to experience other Americans and their complete disregard for learning languages - it's really sad that some people don't even try and they just expect everyone to speak English. It makes me upset.

Anyways, I'll check out the Spanish podcast as well. Thank you for creating these beautiful narratives and I'm definitely already looking forward to future seasons of these podcasts!

Merci beaucoup!

Fills a language niche

I disagree with those who say it is not appropriate for intermediate learners. The stories are interesting and I like the format (I, too, however, would like it weighted slightly more to French) The narration often gives context that helps to have a more thorough understanding of events described. I was fluent in French in the 70’s but have only been back a few times. These stories impart a very pleasant nostalgia for me.
