Preparations for my next escape

My next escape to Paris is only a few weeks away, so I am redoubling my efforts to bring my French up to scratch. This means attending as many of the conversation soirées as possible, run by the wonderful My French Life/Ma Vie Francaise, based here in Melbourne (and in Paris and London now, I believe), but also reading and listening.

In the latter area, as well as the fantastic radio program La Danse des Mots, specifically geared for people learning French,  on Radio France Internationale, I have recently discovered that Australia’s own SBS channel has podcasts in French which can be downloaded. These are usually to do with French people or France-related events in Australia, so have a local flavour.

I’ve just listened to this one about a French group ‘Housse de Racket’, which is coming to Sydney. You’ll note that some of these podcasts are in English, and some of the French ones are conducted by telephone, so a good challenge for those wanting to improve their fluency.
