One Thing In A French Day

& Cultivate Your French (slow French)

A bientôt,



One Thing In A French Day,
French listening comprehension


In this podcast, I tell you about my everyday life here in Paris, but I also share with you nice encounters with friends or professionals (pâtissiers, booksellers, bakers, etc).

The podcast is different than a podcast focused on learning the language, it’s an audio blog that can be located between your French textbook and France!

It’s also a very useful tool to work on your French listening comprehension and to understand spoken French.


♦︎ This is an "all-in-French" podcast! It's released 3 times a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays). A typical podcast's length is 3 to 5 minutes. It’s a very good French listening practice.

♦︎ Use your ear
Use your ear to improve your language skills by listening to authentic French. Hear the rhythm of the spoken French in real context. My listeners tell me that it works so well for them!

♦︎ Short episodes
Short episodes will fit easily into even the busiest day.
An episode a day will help you maintain and build on your French language skills.

♦︎ Learn
Learn common everyday expressions and typical sentence structures. Expand your vocabulary.

♦︎ Stay connected to French when you cannot travel to France. 😊

A1 / B1 / C1 : What's the French level of One Thing In A French Day?
My answer to this question is : everyday French!

It’s the French that I use everyday. It’s always correct French, sometimes « familier ». I might use the passé simple or the subjonctif because they are natural to me.


In the podcast, some sentences are simple, other ones are more complex. Thanks to the interviews, you can listen to French as we use it in conversations, with all those little words of the everyday French phrases (alors, donc, du coup, mine de rien, voilà).

One Thing In A French is useful to prepare your hear for your next trip to France, or to move forward to different French styles as in litterature or in the medias.


Cultivate Your French (Slow French audio)

Things go smoothly with Cultivate Your French, slow French podcast.

A new episode is released every Wednesday. 
This weekly episode is based on the one released that same day on One Thing In A French Day. It might be a little bit shorter though.


There is a small introduction in English that gives you the context of the episode. First, I read the text slowly with clear articulation. Then, I read the text at normal speed.
