Editor’s App Choice: French Radio

Aside from attending lessons (such as a residential course in France including daily visits to the market and shops with your tutor), one of the best ways for intermediate learners of the language to improve is to turn on the French TV or radio and pick up words and phrases here and there in context in order to add to an existing vocabulary.

The advent of Internet radio is a good solution for the latter but when it comes to listening on the move (with a good Wi-Fi signal to keep costs down), there’s only one thing for it – a radio app that allows you to choose from a vast array of spoken word channels (including France Culture and France Info), as well as musical channels ranging from the pop of NRJ to chanson and oldies on Nostalgie.

There is also a sprinkling of regional stations from Lorraine to Lyon, Mayotte to Martinique – all at the swipe of a screen. What’s the best thing about it? It’s free.

    Another good one is Tunein Radio. I listen to RFI all the time with it.
