Fantastic and totally listen-able!

I am hooked on these lovely podcasts. Each episode is based on real people and real world experiences and is produced in such a lovely and professional way. These podcasts make listening to authentic French speakers very accessible. Awesome edutainment.

My one suggestion would be to increase the French content ever so slightly and minimize the English narration a bit.

Actually a really good podcast

I started listening to brush up on my French but the production quality and content is so good it’s like listening to an NPR podcast. I hope they release more!

So helpful

This is a superb idea from Duolingo, as it makes one believe that they’re truly coming to grips with a new language.
The podcast is super clever as it gives one the context and then it’s easier to figure out the French that follows when one doesn’t quite have the vocabulary.
The content of the podcast is also really interesting and so it makes one want to listen more than once.
Well done!
