A great way to study French and get an international perspective on the news. I am self-taught and first listen to the NHK Broadcast in English, then in French, and find it easy to understand. Thank you, NHK, for this service!
As an intermediate speaker of French, I have found this podcast to be the easiest to understand. The journalists speak very clearly and relatively slowly. I've tried a lot of French podcasts, but this is my favorite. Highly recommended!
