I'm looking forward to sites to read on-line news in French language.

I use the following sites:

http://www.lemonde.fr/

http://www.france24.com/fr/

http://www.francesoir.fr/

http://www.lindependant.fr/

What do you use for reading in French language?

Oh, now I don't read French news, but I do like www.rfi.fr - where you can click on Journaux and listen to the most recent news bulletin. Journal Monde is usually only 10 mins, or the Journal France is a full half hour.

Also for the beginner you can listen to their simpler Journal en Fran├žais Facile.

I can't get that link to load Sitesurf. I tried the main site www.acpm.fr but the same thing happened. Perhaps it is down at the moment.

I follow Le Monde and France24; the other two I will have to check out, thanks!

I like http://apprendre.tv5monde.com/fr. This site features news stories divided by level A1-B2. There are transcripts and exercises accompanying each story. For myself, I like to use this more as a listening exercise to see how much I understand without reading along, but the transcripts provided are great for looking up new vocabulary or expressions.

As others have mentioned, News in Slow French is also excellent.

News in slow French seems pretty good sadly you need to suscribe to unlock all the content.
