202: Ça pousse, ton jardin?!
One of our listeners asked that we would prepare a lesson with some gardening vocabulary and that’s what we did, over WhatsApp! We have lots of interesting vocabulary to learn – let’s start with a conversation.
201: La covid-19 - une crise inédite
Our conversation this time is about something which has been central to our lives around the world since the beginning of the year. We are speaking, of course, about the coronavirus pandemic. Let's get started with a conversation.
200: La crise des opioïdes
The subject of this - our 200th lesson! - is the opioids crisis in the U.S. which has reached quite shocking proportions. But how did it come to this? Let’s start with a conversation.
199: ‘Les décroissants’, c’est qui?
Our conversation this time focuses on people who are referred to as ‘les décroissants’. But who exactly are ‘les décroissants’? To find out, let’s start with a conversation.
198: Je viens chercher mon fils!
One of our listeners was taking up a position as a teacher in a pre-school in France and asked if we would put together some expressions and vocabulary that might be used in a dialogue between the teacher and a parent. Let’s consider one such conversation.
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.

They do a good job for intermediate and more advanced learners, but the leftist political subject matter is nauseating
Very good platform… But
This is a very good platform for learning French, but it is use also as a loudspeaker for leftist politics. The dialogs are written in a way that makes that abundantly clear. I did not come here for politics… I have my own opinions and I prefer to think for myself, but otherwise the choice and selection of vocabulary and especially expressions is excellent. I would prefer personally if the author would drop the politics and instead focus on French culture in history.
