rfi:Radio France Internationale: La langue française

Added 11/24/2009
The site uses the week's news in review to teach the French language to non-native speakers. In addition to very current news items, there are topics with longer shelf life in the Faits du jour. Great for vocabulary acquisition, listening comprehension and study of French media. Also great for intercultural comparisons, an important topic in a standards-based language classroom.
