Le Podcast En Francais

Introducing: the new Talk in French Podcast

I have heard your requests, your feedback, and all your frustrations in learning French especially for advanced learners. It is difficult to look for suitable learning materials for your level. That is precisely the reason why this all new Talk in French advanced level podcast is created.

The podcast is perfect for advanced learners or at least B2 (Upper Intermediate) to C1 (Advanced) and C2 (Proficient) in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). So if you plan to pass DELF B2 and above, this podcast is probably one of the best tools you can use to practice your listening comprehension and increase your vocabulary.

Compared with existing podcasts from other competitors, this new Talk in French podcast is more advanced. In each episode, I work with Katie, my British female co-host. She raises questions from the perspective of a French language learner and we talk about a variety of topics such as language, food, cultural differences, humour, literature, love, children, and a whole lot more.

Aside from the various topics, every episode also comes with a grammar section which focuses on the main issues faced by advanced learners. Some episodes also discuss several useful French expressions.

Here are the list of topics for the 26 episodes:
