Wonderful Learning Tool

As a student trying hard to learn how to not only pass tests but actually understand the language, it is incredibly difficult to find listening exercises geared towards the intermediate student. There are plenty of things for advanced students, but it is discouraging to listen only to those since I can't understand much of them anyway! These podcasts provide a way for me to build listening skills and confidence with something that is slightly challenging yet not wholly beyond my grasp!

Best podcast I've found!

Of all the podcasts I have listened to, this one is my favorite -- I'd probably actually pay for it. I learned French by speaking with my young cousins, who are French, and as a result I can speak quickly and understand, but my grammar and vocabulary is a mess. I'm no more an advanced student than I am a beginner; I'm no more a beginner than I am an advanced. So classes always frustrate me greatly. But these lessons are smart, interesting, and comprehensible! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

thank you so much!

I love French so much, but my pronunciation is terrible (i just can't seem to shake my midwestern American accent). This podcast is easy to listen to while studying, walking, etc because there is no english constantly grabbing your attention, yet you soak up the French accent and correct pronunciation. This podcast is truly a blessing! Thank you so much!

quelle mervielle

This is an excellent series for those who want to get into la poesie francaise, but are removed from francophones. Camille is an awesome explicator, and she introduces you to some new interpretations of poems you think you know.

Vive "Easy French Poetry"

What a pleasure to get to hear French spoken in a slow, enunciated way. These podcasts have been extremely useful to me. While acquiring a knowledge of French poetry, this is an excellent opportunity to submerge oneself in a world of spoken and written French for those of us who live so far from France and don't have it in our everyday surroundings. That is actually the key, as I have found, to really begin to gain a command of a foreign language, being surrounded by that language. I have studied many French courses (including Rosetta Stone French levels 1-3), and continue to do so. But after finishing and reviewing those courses, it feels great to actually have something that I can actually use to submerge myself in French and close my eyes and comprehend and actually think in the language. And the transcripts help to fill in the gaps in comprehension with an English translation. It really adds a finishing touch to what all the other courses are missing. Vive Easy French Poetry!

Really impressive and enjoyable

This is a really good resource for an intermediate speaker. The content is on the formal and academic side (as opposed to every day conversation) so possibly it's especially good for students. Still, I'm well past my student years and find this one of the best refresher/learning resources I've found, especially for developing listening skills. The presenter has gone to a great deal of trouble to present each poem in a sysematic way that allows the listener to build on newly gained knowledge and understanding as the podcast proceeds.

Exactly What I Was Looking For!

I didn't expect to find my perfect French lesson in a poetry podcast, but for me, it's not about the poetry. All I was looking for was a podcast that was completely in French, of which I could understand most of it, to train my ear better to the language and help me feel better about my ability to learn French. This podcast is definitely it.

The constant pleas for donations are less annoying when you realize she's doing this all on her own in her free time.
