Radio France – France’s public service broadcaster offers you a choice of 7 networks. They also have an app that you can use to listen to podcasts. This is handy if you’re time-poor as you can listen whilst commuting.
RFI (Radio France Internationale) – A high quality French radio channel covering news and current affairs across the world.
Radio Garden – Tune into radio stations around the world just by moving your mouse across the screen. Great for listening to French music or the local news.
Are you struggling to remember all the new words and rules that you’re learning? Flashcards are quite possibly the most effective way to memorise language. They use a concept called spaced repetition – an algorithm learns how well you know each word/flashcard, then prioritises them so that you study the things you don’t know, without wasting precious time on the things you already do. You can create flashcards using the new vocabulary you’ve come across during your lessons. Alternatively, certain tools allow you to download flashcards created by other users. Whilst creating your own does require a small time investment, it is well worth it!
Anki Web – the original flashcard system. It’s free, open-source software. The only downside is the interface is slightly complex.
Anki App – an app available on all devices.
Quizlet – like the others, Quizlet allows you to create your own flashcards online. Download the mobile app and you can learn during your commutes to work. You can easily access all the French flashcards created by other users via this link.
