Say “Bonjour” to the Duolingo French Podcast!

You asked, we listened. And now you can listen, too –– to the brand-new Duolingo French Podcast, which is out today!

With over 20 million people actively learning French on Duolingo, we thought it was a logical pick for our next podcast language. Similar in format to the Duolingo Spanish Podcast, the #1 language-learning podcast, our French Podcast features fascinating, true stories told in easy-to-follow French with narration by an English-speaking host throughout each episode. The idea is to use compelling storytelling to help learners improve their listening comprehension while hearing and learning from people who represent the diversity of French speakers globally. Our first episode shares the story of Mahmoud M’Seddi, the son of Tunisian immigrants who was the youngest-ever winner of France’s Grand Prize for Best Parisian Baguette in 2018. In future episodes this season, you’ll hear stories from Cameroon, Réunion Island, Martinique and more.

The French Podcast is hosted by Ngofeen Mputubwele (ngo-FEN mpù-tù-BWEH-leh), a journalist, lawyer, and podcast producer based in New York City. The podcast is a production of Duolingo and Adonde Media, who also partner with us on the Duolingo Spanish Podcast.

Episodes of the Duolingo French Podcast will be released weekly for the first season, and the language level is best suited for intermediate French learners. We hope you will enjoy this new resource, and can’t wait to hear what you think!

Please more French, less or even zero English in the podcast. Thanks

June 18, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/W-Ruggles-Wolfe

I was going to say the same thing. I don't see the value-add of having 50% of the content being in English.

If anything - it makes things more difficult.

As a regular Duolingo en español podcast listener, I can say that it's still great. Do I wish it were ALL in Spanish? Sure. But I'm not complaining. It's free and it's awesome. No room to complain here. In fact, it's so good, I'd been waiting for them to add French and follow the exact format.

There are other great podcasts out there for intermediate speakers with only French and no English. I really like innerFrench. It's worth a Google.

https://www.duolingo.com/AndrewMell439137

Thanks so much for "Inner French". So exciting. I strongly recommended everyone try this. If its not for you I apologise. But I am so convinced by this that I cannot recommend it enough.

    I definitely second what Andrew said. The innerFrench podcasts are fantastic. It's a great intermediate learning tool for those that can't quite keep up with normal speed French and is also educational on various subjects which helps expand vocabulary. For me, I have to be in 'the French zone' and interspersed English shatters the flow, so the 100% French InnerFrench podcast is awesome. Thank you for the recommendation!

    I also want to give a shout out to Yabla! which are French videos for learners... it's not free, but it has been well worth the subscription for me.

    June 24, 2019

      I found on the InnerFrench website that he is also producing videos now, one per week, starting this year (2019). They are also really good, a bit harder than the podcasts, but same concept of discussing subjects completely in French and explaining new words concepts in French. Great tool!

      There are other great podcasts out there for intermediate speakers with only French and no English.

      I've compiled a list of 8 other podcasts with links in a comment further down in this thread. (And another 3 which are for french children/teenagers but fairly easy to understand).

      June 27, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/Born_Canadian

      I have been listening to InnerFrench for a while now and agree - excellent. Hugo is personable and speaks perfectly for intermediate learners. And love that there is no English - the best way to learn since there is subtitles and transcripts for words or phrases that you don't quite catch.

      June 27, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/raulmf9325

      Agree. InnerFrench is really good, both the youtube videos and the podcast

      I was on the beta test for the French podcast and that was my number one complaint: Enough with the English! It just become so annoying that I couldn't bother with it anymore. There are many other podcasts out there that are far more engrossing.

      June 19, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/zudeet

      I agree. I've been waiting for the French podcast but am disappointed that it isn't largely or entirely in French.

      June 19, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/grungefairy74

      There are plenty of podcasts in French only. Not a lot for people who are easing into it and appreciate the training wheels.

      June 21, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/TENCHIJIN.

      Yeah, I like that they make podcasts for more languages but I don’t see much worth in using them because a lot of it is English.

      June 18, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/thekatmorgan

      Same problem with the Spanish podcast. I gave up on it because there was waaaaay too much English. It would have been perfect if it was all in Spanish!

      June 19, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/NormalPineapple

      I would say this would be best as an option. More English for lower level speakers and less English for higher level speakers.

      June 23, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/JAFrenchie

      It'd be nice for there to be less English, but the English is there to help you understand the French better, and for those with a lower French ability, the podcast would be nearly impossible to understand. Also, it's amazing that Duolingo is even doing this, because there are many other podcast/news learning resources out there, but those aren't free like what Duolingo is doing :)

      June 28, 2019

      I “second” that thought!

      June 20, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/Sami_Dogan

      I disagree. I recently started learning French and I really want to incorporate some French listening practice into my learning. When I listen to the Duolingo French podcast, it is of great help to me that sometimes the story switches to English. In this way, I understand more of it, and if I didn't understand the French completely, it gives me more context, so I can follow through with it.

      July 2, 2019

      Agreed!

      Woo hoo! I'm glad other languages than Spanish (not to say Spanish isn't awesome) are getting some love. I hope this means that Italian and German stories will be introduced soon, and eventually maybe they can follow in the footsteps of Spanish and French :)

      Keep up the great work, team!

      @natalia.sabillon, that's wonderful!

      I congratulate the whole Duolingo Team for their commitment in bringing us the best in language learning. I have no doubt that I am using the best platform to learn languages.

      PS. I'm already listening to this podcast on my Spotify account.

      I hope you are developing a project to offer Podcasts in German as well. That would be awesome!

      https://www.duolingo.com/Leafhuntress

      I had already noticed & reported on this in two different languages.

      There's one glitch, i think. If i'm learning Spanish i can find the podcasts under the 'more' button, but if i'm in French(from English) 'learning mode' i cannot.

      June 18, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/ChillyenChili

      I keep seeing that same complaint of "there's too much english in it." If that's your complaint the podcast isn't for you. There's already podcasts like News in slow French. On the Spanish side there's already Radio Ambulante, Así como suena, and Españolistos. Let the duolingo podcast fill its niche for new-intermediate learners.

      June 22, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/drockalgzemoser

      I agree with and second your request, but Deutsch - Warum Nicht by the Goethe institute is a tripartite example of a good free podcast—you should check it out!

      June 20, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/SusanWatki3

      This was great, I'm looking forward to more episodes. I like the combination of English and French. As a novice French speaker, the English gave me an idea of what French words I might hear and helped me to better understand the French overall. Don't change a thing!

      June 19, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/soren9127

      I listened to the podcast and I think that it is wonderful. The English parts are there to expand on the story, not to translate the French parts. This is a great addition to Duolingo.

      June 19, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/LoriLynn22

      This sounds great! I really love the Spanish podcasts and I especially like that the more complex portions are told in English and the easier portions are in Spanish. I think it really helps me learn and the stories are fabulous.

      June 18, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/Avery_Eubanks

      Formidable! :D

      June 20, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/apablito777

      They should let us watch podcasts on DUO instead of on another WEBSITE.

      June 20, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/b961125

      Well, I don't think so: 1) People who don't listen to podcasts shouldn't need to have any podcast player in the mobile app. 2) People can choose which service they like more, and it's good. 3) Those services are designed to host podcasts naturally, and what Duolingo can actually do with this — probably, allow authors of podcasts to embed their episodes or even whole playlists.

      June 20, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/corsig

      I'm a huge fan of the first episode. I know some have said that there was too much English but i disagree. If you are a beginner or immediate this helps greatly putting things into context to help verify what you are hearing.

      June 21, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/Chloe137518

      The podcast is awesome and I think the English aid is fine. Once I searched the Play Store for a language App and particularly I was after French. I downloaded a few and Duolingo surpasses all. I understand French better now than I was in college.

      June 23, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/Brooke886174

      Everyone is complaining about the English, but honestly I enjoy it because it helps me self-check and actively engage in the podcast, whereas if it was completely French I might get lost since I take longer to comprehend things.

      This is a solid podcast, not gonna lie, and after the Spanish podcast I think we all have some pretty high expectations for this one. I do think there should be a greater emphasis on the French, however, with less English mixed in.

      I’m wondering if I can take up two or three languages at a time ? I’m currently doing portuguese.

      June 26, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/marathon332

      Some people can handle it but I recommend against it. Personally, I immerse myself in one language at a time until I'm able to understand and use it without having to translate it in my head. At that point, I begin learning a new language. That way, I become proficient before I ask my brain to juggle learning one more language. I don't believe in over-taxing the brain by dividing my time among too many languages. For me, it becomes more difficult, confusing and frustrating to tax my resources. After all, there are only 24 hours in a day and I don't live to learn languages. Plus, I can really track my progress with ease too.... put simply, I master one language before adding another one to my plate. That's how I approach it anyway. Hope this helps...

      June 26, 2019

      https://www.duolingo.com/PaulDeNice1

      You can but becareful how you go a out learning multiple languages. Keep you study at different times. Get a good grounding in one foreign language before taking on more.

Why is that? Thanks

      Ah, I think I was thinking way too literally... Baguette is used for many "stick like things" in French, apparently, and the baker found it funny that she was doubting the word being French
