I am a language teacher and decided to get on Duolingo to learn French and happily discovered this podcast. Even though I’ve studied French for about 9 months, I can easily understand the French used in these podcasts. The speakers speak clearly and slowly and if I miss a message, the context...Read full review »

These podcasts are perfect! Good balance of English and French, such interesting, off-beat stories. I was fluent 25 years ago and am nervously preparing for a month in Paris. Thank you Duolingo!!

I am learning French via the Duolingo app and learned about this podcast. While my comprehension is very low, I enjoy listening and becoming familiar with French speakers.

Duolingo is an amazing app to learn different languages. The podcasts help me learn more. Including the app. I am learning French, Chinese, Finish and Hindi. Everyone should try it. By trying, I am 1st place! Thank you so much Duolingo. Aaria.

It’s a bit annoying that’s he guy talks in English every 2 seconds, it’s distracting, it supposed to teach French not English:/
PeloRizadooo via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 06/24/22
Great podcast with the English and French intercut to check you have understood and introduce/explain less commonly used words or phrases. With this format I can understand easily at normal speed and am now trying speeding up to 1.5x to make it more like real spoken French. Also great for...Read full review »

I’ve been taking French lessons with Duolingo for about 7 months. J’apprends un peu de français et m’aider un mon voyage à Paris en mars. I hope I wrote that ok? Love your stories but I do have a suggestion maybe you could create an optional short quiz at the end of the stories to see what we...Read full review »

OMG stop saying the podcast is bad!! Its excellent! It is complicated because you probably haven’t learnt this much advanced French! I don’t understand most things Oliviea says but I still listen to them. Pay attention closely what is happening and you might understand what Oliviea is saying (or...Read full review »

J’aime le podcast. J’étudie français et c’est amusant. Merci :)
Hotdawgz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/22
i think there should be an english transcript so you can actually know what they are saying at parts you dont understand but the french transcript is well put together ans accurate which is convient.
ughhhhhhhhhhh hi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/22
This is an amazing podcast that teaches you to speak fluently, while covering some great vocabulary. You also are learning a lot in general because of all their topics they talk about. They keep you engaged, always wanting to learn more.

It is ok but It is complicated all in all TERRIBLE WORST EVER

These podcasts fill the gap perfectly for an intermediate French learner. The French is perfectly paced and the English narration keeps me on track and interested.
Torgerson678 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/22/22
These podcasts are so wonderful, especially when I look back at the way I had previously been taught French. The stories were just so silly. But these stories are interesting and thoughtful and informative. I’m so grateful to Duolingo
Swage me ts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/22
I find this podcast good. It is intended for intermediate level but lower levels can benefit from this as well as it pushes one to get used to listening even if not all is understood. I would listen to the french parts couple of times to get a feel of the spoken tempo and hear the words again. A...Read full review »

I am really a beginner learning French, but I enjoy listening to the Duolingo podcast stories. The topics are fascinating and I get excited when I hear words and phrases that I actually understand! I currently rely on the English sections to follow the story.

Love the idea of this podcast and am very eager to follow and learn from it. However, the speech is too fast for beginners. A little slower speech would be enormously helpful, otherwise it can be demoralising when listening and trying to understand. Please consider beginners or those of us with...Read full review »

I’m building on my school girl French. Love the idea of following a story but finding it difficult to pick up more than the odd word from most of the podcast stories. The Stolen Paintings was better because the narrator spoke more slowly and clearly, allowing me time to get my head around the...Read full review »

Two of my favorite things are French & True Life Stories. DuoLingo French podcast has both! I love learning French in a fun way with amazing inspirational stories! Ngofeen Mputubwele is the most engaging storyteller!

The Duolingo French Podcast episode “Rescue on Mount Blanc” had me on the edge of my seat! I learned new vocabulary and was enthralled with the story! Merci!
Michelle LTE via Apple Podcasts · Switzerland · 02/18/22
It’s pretty cool how it says the story in English and French, but I don’t understand any of the French, only a phew words. Im still a beginner but Duolingo did recommend me this podcast so I thought it would be good for my level, but I’m finding it difficult to understand only a phew words....Read full review »

I look forward to hearing Duolingo’s French podcast everyday! I especially enjoyed the 6 episodes series on Alexandra Jacob.

This makes me want even more to learn French. The story is very motivating and touching.
AnaPatrascu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/22
I love learning French via this story! I’ve been listening to each episode a couple of times for understanding. This also helps me as I watch Lupin in French with French subtitles. Now I want to do more research on Alexsandre.
