Merci beaucoup pour l'actualite en francais. Slow News In French is a fantastic site. I use this sight to help my French students to expand their listening skills. I even learn new vocabulary!!! I love this; keep up the great work. I brag about Slow News In French to whomever I can. If you ever expand into visual news cast that would be the ultimate.
Hi all, just a bit of feedback. I really enjoy the style and presentation of the program and “tout simplement” you just keep getting better and better each week and I look forward to the next edition each weekend.
I love your program! Nowhere else on the internet can I get so much listening and pronunciation practice, not to mention all of the other wonderful features. I love the expressions catalog. Your program will help me speak French like a native (I am already at level C1/C2).
