My Polyglot Life en français
Find all the episodes here with the full transcription and download the outlines and vocabulary sheets.
In this podcast, I’ll talk about what’s going on in the world and about French culture, in French. The format will be structured around a question with an introduction, an argumentation in 2 or 3 parts and a conclusion. I’ll speak standard French in a clear voice at medium-high speed using vocabulary adapted to intermediate learners.
It might be a bit hard at first for lower-intermediate levels but the episodes come with a full transcript and vocabulary sheet.
The goal is that you’ll get used to hearing exposés in a format similar to the one that’s expected for DELF and DALF (TEF and TCF oral production are much shorter although they have to be structured with linking words as well).
As practice, I invite you to react to what I’m saying and to come up with your own argumentation. Add your opinion to the comments or find me on social media!
My Polyglot Life & Guests – All About French Fluency & Living in a francophone region
Coming in 2020
In these episodes I’ll talk to other polyglots and French teachers to ask them how they overcame their fear of speaking and tips for you to succeed as well. There are currently no episodes in this series as I’m working on the guests line-up.
