I decided to listen to the podcast because I felt like I couldn’t skip to listening exercises in the app that was at my level of understanding (I had to go through the beginner exercises to get to intermediate). I like the podcast. Good pace of speaking. I appreciate the filler English context. I...Read full review »

I have enjoyed listening to the stories from French speakers. The format, delivery, and helpful English context supplied all goes to making this a podcast I keep listening to and learning from. Thank you for the wonderful content!

I greatly enjoy the Duolingo podcast. As well as a way of keeping the French speaking part of my brain active, I find the human interest stories genuinely fascinating!

I wait each week for these, particularly the latest series 6. Really interesting and just the right level for me. Keep them coming!

I am not an intermediate learner but listening to the podcasts help me to understand different dialects. I am also very chuffed with myself when I am able to recognise phrases, words and in context. Wish you did a similar conversation podcast for novice learners. Thank you anyway

I haven’t been able to listen to the stories because they are all running very fast in such way that it is almost imposible to understand what they are saying. The voices sound like cartoons I hope you can look into it. The first stories sounded perfect but recently the all sound awful. The...Read full review »

I love these podcasts. The French speakers tell such important personal stories with great definition and expression. Not only are my comprehension skills improving significantly while I listen, I also feel beautiful connections with each guest. Thank you Duolingo for your awesome, free and...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to the Duolingo French podcast for about a year. The episode “Le nom caché” nearly brought me to tears. The story and the story telling are great! Thanks for making this podcast.

I absolutely love this podcast!! The stories are amazing and truly showcase the diversity across La Francophonie. Bravo!!

The Duolingo French podcast is excellent and I am so glad I discovered it. The real-life stories are generally very interesting (which helps a lot as it holds your attention) and the level and speed of speech is just about right for me. Top marks Duolingo 👏🏻🇫🇷

Really enjoying the aspect of storytelling which is at the heart of this podcast. Hope that you can put together some advanced French level podcasts too.
ChitaAdelaide via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/04/21
I would like to know, on the app, there is a bear. Now, this bear doesn’t appear in the stories. Why?
pippy solo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/03/21
This is professional french and education recommend for kids and parents I have Duolingo lessons and good for french.

This season of podcasts are particularly good. They are provocative and cover stories that interest me.

I am loving this podcast. Wonderful stories, using language that conjures up vivid images and emotions. My eyes have filled with tears several times already..... Thank you to the team that works on this podcast. Keep up the excellent work.

Will I learn French properly Please tell me
zarah hasan via Apple Podcasts · India · 04/19/21
I just went through the whole catalog. There are very few episodes that pertain to certain areas of France, certain professions in France, or cultural food or music or art. Etc. So many of the topics are stressful or politicized. The focus is definitely taken away from the language. :( In a...Read full review »

Too much narration in English spoils this podcast unfortunately, every time you start to focus on the French you are thrown straight back into English. Most of the stories are pretty good though.
Bumbledee84 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/15/21
A real W O W to those comments that telling the stories of non-white people is somehow the same as “the woke agenda” or “making everything about racism.” If you can’t handle any perspective that isn’t your own, for whatever dumb reason that may be, this podcast isn’t for you. But if you enjoy...Read full review »

מעבר ללימוד הצרפתית, התוכן עצמו פשוט טוב. ההסתייגות היחידה שלי היא שקטעי האנגלית ארוכים יחסית ולא זהים לאלה בצרפתית, הייתי מעדיפה שכל הסיפור היה בצרפתית עם תרגום לאנגלית אחרי כל קטע צרפתי. אבל גם כך זה טוב והתוכן שווה את זה

I’m enjoying the podcasts very much. I listen to them while I am doing repetitive studio work (visual art), and find the time passes very enjoyably. Plus, my comprehension skills are improving! Is there any way of including listening to these podcasts in one’s Duolingo ‘streak’? MMECRG

Great! Really useful and diverse!
Danasongblogger via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/25/21
I had no idea of how much work, detail, time and effort that goes into the making of Duolingo podcasting. Thank you so much for all that you do!
kaarisa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/21
Love that you can learn French while learning also stories of the different aspects of the culture

This podcast is truly amazing. I remember the first time I listened to it I was in awe about its topics. I’ve learned so much about French history with this podcast, and I reckon it’s the best one I’ve ever listened to. It it very interesting and engaging to hear both the French and English parts...Read full review »

Super helpful and interesting, as an extension to my A-level French course!! Would 100% recommend!
Moooooooo1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/21
The French Duolingo helps me I prove my French listening and also keeps my very entertained by telling interesting stories. I also love how they say some in French, then they switch to English, e.t.c. I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants to improve their French in a fun and...Read full review »

Thank you very much for your work. The stories are just amazing. Keep it up!
aigul m via Apple Podcasts · Kazakhstan · 03/02/21
This is the best podcast if you are past basic learning in French but not confident to go out into the world. Listen and read the transcripts and your learning will improve out of sight
Hey Tina says via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/27/21
The true stories are interesting and educative, and have helped me expand my cultural knowledge surrounding Francophone topics. They are easy to understand and always keep me wanting to hear another :)
bertie126 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/24/21
J’adore ce podcast! Les histoires sont géniales et inspirantes et intéressantes, ce qui est super. C’est bien comme ils parlent lentement (j’ai essayé d’écouter la radio française une fois, mais ils ont parlé trop vite) donc je peux le comprendre, car je suis encore un débutant intermédiaire....Read full review »

Truly interesting broadcasts. Huge value added if you can follow along using the transcript found on the Duolingo website. I look up unfamiliar words and find it especially helpful to note the prepositions used with verbs. I can imagine a French teacher assigning these for an evening’s homework....Read full review »

Hello all, the Duolingo podcast is great. The pace to listen to the audio is great. I’m not quiet at the intermediate level but it is easy to follow. It is helpful when there is a follow up in English to support your listening.I do like the fact that the stories being presented are real and taken...Read full review »

I can’t understand every word that is spoken; yet! But listening to the spoken word is so useful and will help me learn quicker, I hope.

I have just found these and they all seem really interesting as well as good French practice and learning.
