Bonjour, and welcome to what I hope is an eclectic mix of French content that reflects my day to day encounters with news, commentary and learning materials, mainly from a variety of francophone sources that I follow on social media.
Podcasts are great listening practice and this site offers a large number of dialogues at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. It is also possible to select content based on the DELF levels A1 through to C1.
Yet another app to help you with your French. This time it’s dedicated to vocabulary. As is increasingly the case these days, it’s subscription based with limited free content to entice you in. However, with five minutes of free content a day it provides you with a useful regular vocabulary refresher. There are prompts inviting you to upgrade to a subscription and occasional advertisements.
The short video on the home page of this site offers you a way of moving on from a plateau, that's to say you've reached a certain level but want to improve. The idea is to achieve a degree of immersion by listening to the daily news.
Mon coach Bescherelle is a learning app that is aimed at improving French grammar and spelling. It seeks to address a problem whereby native speakers are known to make many mistakes in the written language, which should give those of us learning French as a second language some comfort.
Here Nathalie Porte on her site Nathalie FLE offers very sound advice for improving your French. After years of trying different things I can honestly say that the advice offered here is what I ultimately distilled out after experimenting with many different approaches.
I have been following Johan at Français Authentique for many years, during which time his material has consistently been of high quality. Here he gives some very good advice concerning pronunciation, something that can be critical in determining whether you are understood or not when in conversation with a native French speaker. Presented in French at an intermediate level.
