Fun Practice

This is a nice way to practice listening. Will there be a saison 2?

Great for intermediate French language student

Interesting and diverse short stories. These sound and feel more authentic than the usual language-course material. In addition to practice with listening skills, you pick up some interesting varied expressions and current vocabulary. I like that you have the option to listen with or without the English commentary (which can be quite be helpful depending on your level) and to follow along with the text on the provided links. Highly recommended. Please make more episodes and advertise so more people find this!
