Jamel Debbouze, acteur et comique
In this episode, Gaelle talks about Jamel Debbouze, a French Moroccan artist, famous for his humor and his unmistakable posture with his disable hand. Icon of the 2000’s for his roles in “Amelie” and “Astérix and Obélix - mission Cléopâtre", you should check him out if you like French comedy and humour.
Indicateurs de temps (en, il y a, pendant, depuis, ça fait, dans)
In this episode, Gaelle goes back to basics and explains 6 different time indicators. From the common trap of “depuis” (which doesn’t only translate “since”) to the lesser known “ça fait”.
Les journées européennes du patrimoine
In this episode, Gaelle talks about a major cultural event happening all across Europe every year in September: the European Heritage Days. It started in France in 1984 and is now a major event, with millions of people going. Clear your calendar, you have some exploring and visits to do!
Série de l’été - ville de Montpellier
This episode is the last of a four-part summer series to give you the urge to travel in France. Gaelle interviews Catherine to talk about Montpellier, a beautiful medieval city in the South of France. You will learn that French is not the only official language in this part of the country and that if you want to come to France to study, Montpellier should be on the top of your list.
Série de l’été - ville de Nice
This episode is the third of a four-part summer series to give you the urge to travel in France. Gaelle interviews Isabelle to talk about Nice, a famous French city on “la Côte d’Azur”, the French Riviera on the Mediterranean sea. You will learn that Nice hasn’t always been French and that there is more to do than just sunbathe on the beach.
Série de l’été - ville de Nantes
This episode is the second of a series of four, a summer special to give you the urge to travel in France. In this episode, Gaelle interviews Sylvaine to talk about Nantes. You will hear about the rich (and not always glorious) history of the city, with its duchess, slave trade and famous LU biscuits. Warning: after hearing this episode, you might have a terrible urge to go to Nantes and see for yourselves the famous “machines de l’île”.
fantastic podcast for advanced beginners
I am so glad I found this podcast. It is so easy to follow and yet I am still being challenged and am learning a lot. I look forward to every new episode. I’d love to have a daily broadcast, but now I’m just being greedy. Thank you Gaëlle!
Great podcast for listening/understand and building vocabulary
Gaelle is lovely to listen to …. speaks slowly and vocab is usually repeated during the podcast for easier learning. I also love the interviews as this is real life with dialogue a tad faster. I especially love the podcasts on interviewing different people for different regions of France. Nice way to learn French and learn about different towns/cities/regions of France. I hope you do more!! It’s a great podcast for listening/understanding French and building your vocabulary. A+ Jordan
Fantastic way to tune your ears to spoken French
I love Gaëlle voice in the podcast especially slowing down the reading and also throwing a bit of English for better understanding. Overall, for someone wanting to ‘catch’ spoken French this is fantastic. Highly recommended.
