The Latest Release...

Always been a great podcast. The last release of the app has cured a lot of the problems and now it’s possible to download entire episodes for later listening.

Great for military DLPT

This intermediate level of news is a great way to prepare for the dlpt. Love the tap to translate function. A ‘more info’ for explanation type would be great, but understand that’s a lot of additional work. Great job!!

Great idea but the pronunciation not that great!

I really enjoy the idea of learning a language through the news. However, talking about French version, the man has a pretty strong (probably English) accent and seems not to know French very well, and the woman speaks with much more confidence but with a German accent. And this is about learning French without someone’s accent. Please, find French native speakers!
