I have been listening to this podcast for four years. When I began listening, I didn't understand very much though I enjoyed hearing the french. I had to read the podcast in order to understand it. Four years later, I find that I understand most of the podcasts the first time I hear it. I still listen to each a second time, however, while following along with the text. Although the podcast is not a french lesson, it's a great way to keep or develop one's ear for listening to french spoken by native speakers. It's also short--somedays I am challenged to listen to even this 3 minute podcast, I would not have the time to follow any "lesson" that were longer. Lastly, it's interesting to hear what Laetitia is up to--after four years of listening, I feel as though she's a friend. Being short and interesting is what keeps me listening--and is helping my french.
