Podcast Francais Facile – 4.5
The goal of Podcast Français Facile is to support learners in passing from level A1 to A2 of the DELF. Beginners who use this resource can probably develop a solid foundation of basic French and confidently move on to A2 without worrying about gaps in their knowledge. At the same time, the website and beginner podcasts may be difficult to navigate for an absolute beginner, as everything is 100% in French. It can also be confusing seeing the introductory videos introduce the most basic vocabulary words, but use more complicated words to describe the concept. Nevertheless, with the help of a dictionary (maybe Readlang for the text) you can have access to tons of free content.
Although some of the pages are just lists of verb conjugations, most of them are interactive. There are multiple explanations and exercises in the lessons to help solidify your understanding. The Intermediate section has transcripts with links to specific grammar or vocabulary exercises, and you can organize the dialogue section by grammar topic. Some of the exercises support translations into other languages, such as English, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, and Arabic.
Besides the basic lessons and dialogues, there are also reading comprehension activities, videos on phonetics, dictations, and a free A1 and A2 DELF test.
Overall, Podcast Français Facile is an excellent resource for beginners, and it’s 100% free!
