I will check these out. I've been trying to supplement what I learn here with listening resources.

For listening to French on the go, I have been using a free iOS app called FrenchRadio.There's a station on there called French Culture where they talk about various things. They usually speak very clear French so even though I'm not at the point where I can follow the conversations (I've only been studying the language for three weeks now), I do recognize a lot of words and the occasional phrase. Some alternative stations I've found with people talking a lot are France Info, RFI Monde and RFI Afrique.

Thank you! The Discovery Channel videos are great. I can understand almost everything in Episode 1 with French subtitles but not much without them. I have to train my ear to comprehend spoken French better.

There is a podcast on iTunes called "News in Slow French" it is pretty slow helps with picking up the spoken language.

http://french.about.com is where I get my reference info for verb conjugations, etc. and it has served me well so far. I use it often and the information is excellent and v. understandable.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005FXCWL2/ref=oh_do04_details_o04i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - is the book I use for reference and extra learning. It's good, but only as an extra source in addition to something like duo lingo. It doesn't do as an exclusive source.

I would like to add the Michel Thomas method to the list (Wikipedia article). I have found it extremely effective in much the same way that Duolingo is extremely effective (high motivation, little effort). At the same time it is so different that it complements Duolingo perfectly. It has all the important explanations that Duolingo is lacking.

The Extra epis are fantastique but kind of hard to hear due to quality. Great suggestions though. I've already bookmarked this page :)
