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
Pioneers. Great podcast
I started listening to them ten years ago when I began learning French. I’m so glad they’re still around and doing podcasts! You’re the best in the industry, keep it up!
Great for intermediate learners!
This is a great podcast. The topics are very interesting. The pace is great and the method is very clear. One is supposed to listen to the conversation, including the explanations at the end, then listen again. The first time I listen each conversation, I understand about 60%, on the second time around, I understand more than 90%. I am more concern about getting my ear to decipher the sounds than to understand word for word.
I love that it is French/English because I sometimes forget what language I am listening too. My native language is Spanish. I was an advanced French student about 30 years ago, but stopped practicing when I moved to the US, now all the vocabulary is coming back to my mind! I love this podcast!
