I find the ‘modern’ speed a little slow relative to the speed at which most French people speak. But at this speed I can understand most of it without needing to check the English, and the few words I don’t catch, I can get it well enough from the context. It’s good stuff, well done.

J’adore ce magazine. Les articles sont très intéressants et j’aime beaucoup d’avoir cet outil pour pratiquer ma compréhension.
Albert McDade, Mennstrie, Scotland Verified Owner –
Very helpful indeed for me in improving my listening skills in French. Keep up the good work.

Each month there is a variety of interesting topics which gives a greater understanding of France, French people and their culture. These topics can be read in French and there is also an English translation if required. Every topic is recorded at an enunciated and a modern speed so can be altered as your listening skills improve. Once downloaded, they stay on your device so there is no hurry to rush through them and you can return to earlier topics/months at any time. As always, everything is well thought out and Camille’s voice is clear and pleasant. The download is straightforward too. I’m enjoying these a lot and happy to recommend. Thank you.

As always, Camille does a superb job with the monthly magazine. Two choices for speed with great diction and clarity. A wide range of subject matters pertaining to France.
Merci mille fois.

I really love this French audio magazine! I’m learning a lot of new vocabulary through it, and my listening comprehension is definitely improving!
This is how I use it:
I listen first to the article in modern French at full speed. I listen to the whole thing, and then go back and listen to it paragraph by paragraph. If there is any word at all that I’m not sure of, I double check the transcript in French. Sometimes I also need to check the English translations. Then I go back and listen to that paragraph again in French.
When I’m finished, I listen to the whole thing again in French to make sure that I can still follow every word. And usually, I can! I’ve found that I am picking up a really diverse vocabulary, and it’s sticking!
I usually listen at the gym, and just keep it on repeat. I also like to revisit the articles later after I’ve learned them to review. I’m always amazed at how much I am understanding and remembering !
And best of all, I discovered that I’m understanding better now if I play a French YouTube video! The other day, I played a video without really giving it my full attention. I was shocked to realize I understood EVERYTHING they said! Whooo hoooo!!!

If you love French Culture or French History then you will love this Magazine. I love history so I am so glad that I have this subscription. It is great to have French material spoken at two speeds from a real French person with excellent communication skills.

I am enjoying the magazines and the topics you’ve chosen so far. The story on Nantes brought back happy memories of our few days there. With this particular article, though, I didn’t think there was much difference between the enunciated and modern French speeds in the audio.

Bonjour Catherine. Thank you for your review. There was a glitch when we launched the Nantes article, which had some issues with the audio. If you try it now, you’ll hear a big difference between the 2 versions. Cheers. Olivier – French Today
Steven Jupiter, FL, USA Verified Owner –
I have been very impressed with, not only the magazine subscription, but the site overall! I have tried other language sites and this one is my preference. The nature of the articles and short stories make learning French easy and more natural. I am a fan and extremely satisfied with this decision!
Also, the owners are super responsive and helpful – so rare in this world today:)

Bien fait Camille – très intéressante et je l’aime beaucoup!
Mary Cellucci Broomall, Penna, USA Verified Owner –
The audio magazine is a great way to visit different areas of France, virtually.
Camille narrates beautifully. I love Listening to her.
The story guides ” sont agreeables et instructifs”.
David Taylor, Tucson, Arizona, USA Verified Owner –
I’m really enjoying my subscription to the monthly audiomagazine. The articles are short enough that it doesn’t feel like a big time commitment to listen to one or even all of them (I tend to procrastinate if I feel that way); they are interesting and cover things about France that are not so well known; and of course they are read by Camille herself with her impeccable diction. The more rapid modern French version suits my comprehension level but is challenging enough that I need a little help on occasion from the accompanying text in French, and there is always the English translation for unfamiliar vocabulary. All of this is well designed to enhance learning. Very well conceived and executed. Félicitations!
