    Ma Ville – French Listening Practice & Transcript

    French Listening Practice – ‘Ma Ville’ – with Audio, Transcript and Activities French listening practice was on my mind this week!

Speaking exams are looming and all we have done lately is focus on getting through the material and speaking!

    Les réseaux sociaux – French Listening Lesson with Transcript

    French Listening Lesson on Social Media and Social Networks Social media and ‘les réseaux sociaux’ are a staple part of most young peoples’ lives in the 21st century.
