Hi, Welcome all on Fast French Learning, the blog to Learn and Improve your French 🇫🇷 😀
Listening to podcasts is a very efficient way to improve your oral understanding, if they are ok for your level. Do not forget that it is very important to learn the French language at your own pace !
It is one of the important resources for French podcast.
Among the resources you can use to get better at having conversations and to get more understanding skills, I introduce you a very famous website to listen to French podcast, this is frenchpod101. To get all the informations on what they are offering you need to register, to create an account, you can do it for free.
It is easy to go through the website, the organization is made related to the different levels of the language. So, you can chose (select) your own level from the beginner level to the adavanced level. So, if you do not know exactly what level you have, it is nice and easy to beginwith it. You ca do it on their website, on their application on your cellphone, or on a software for desktop. You are going to see more than 1370 audio files and videos courses : some approaches to retain more words, flascards that uses the space repetition system, some PDF, some talks.
You can use it for free, but there is a limit of time, if you want to use it more, to have more informations on what they are offering, you have to pay. For the newbies, in the podcasts for the newbies you are going to find some lists of words in the French languages of course, and with the English version. You can as well listen to some podcasts which are for advanced level people, you are going to study French expressions, you are going to listen to discussions (which is more difficult to understand than learning some words).
Here is a part of the content for the newbies :
3-minutes french-greetings and useful phrases / around the home level 1 (words, phrases and idioms that you can use at home) / before you travel to France-survical french phrases / can introduce yourself / classic frenchpod101 – French newbie / phrases for conversations / culture class-essential french vocabulary-french superstitions and beliefs-holidays in France / essantial french for emergencies / …
Among this variety of topics, which one is the right one for you ? Choose the one you want. You can choose the order of your courses, anytime you can choose where you are going.
Every exercises is composed by three audio files : 1-the full audio, 2-the review track and 3-episodes with dialogues, with the voices of native Nrench speakers. The structure of the course is the same everytime : French discussions, these discussions with the English language version, an exchange on the story and the culture,…
The phrases (said by native French people) are written on the side of the screen, you can click on them and listen to them whenever you want, you can take your time. So you can divide the discussions into small parts to better understand them, to have a better comprehension. You can decide if you want to read the text in the French language or in the English language, so it is very nice to make the difference of the structures of the two languages, it is very efficient to make links in your mind and go deeper into the language. You are reading while you are listening, and then you are going to speak. It is nice for getting more pronunciation skills. You will find as well a list of words which are taken from the discussions, you can select the words you want, to click on them and learning to hear them properly. There are two speeds that you can choose, a slow one and a normal one. If you are not able to understand some words, you can choose one of them and put it in a flashcard. It will give you a picture of the word, so you can make an association (that is how the memory works, it makes the remembering stronger) between both the word and the picture (visual memory). It gives the word in the French language and in the English language, and one phrase for each language, to put the word in a context. I strongly suggest you to never learn some French words alone, without a context, it does not really work, everytime put the words in a context.
The content is precise (for different subjects) so it is helpful, you can easily use it in your everyday life. It is suitable if you want to visit France or a French speaking country.
