rfi:Radio France Internationale: La langue française

I recommend this site to my students who ask for more materials on listening comprehension. These broadcasts are delivered at a pace that is adequate for the foreign language learner. The transcripts also aid in comprehension when all else fails. Students are also motivated by the authenticity of what they are hearing- the current weekly news.

Technical Remarks:

The site employs cutting-edge technology with the user in mind.
