  • Very interesting to learn about the habits of the French. These podcasts are great, enjoyable and quite useful.

  • Really like the section about useful verbs that French people use a lot! Please do more of this! Also I am really enjoying your podcasts.I’ve listened to all of them so far!

  • Merci! your podcast is so helpful and full of good information. Thank you. I hope to speak french fluently some day.

  • Salut! you are GREAT! however, i suggest that you speak french rather than speak english most of the time because in that way students like me who listen to your podcasts will get accustomed to hearing french words. Merci!

    • I am planning to do it but later. But this podcast is an extension of the blog. I want to reach a certain audience (people who have an interest in French). I don’t want to do exactly what some others podcast do already. I want to be different. I will do another podcast only in French but it will be a different format I think (dedicated to listening comprehension). I cannot please with everyone 🙁
