    Proper balance of content and explanation
  • Sergio Martz
    Your show helps me tremendously to make sense of lots of french phrases and expressions I often hear while listening to other, ‘full immersion’ french podcasts. I love your casual style, your tone of voice and how patient and methodical you are. I hear your shows often nd find them genuinely useful. Vous ette tres gentile. Je te remerci
  • Ashleyyyyy34563
    These episodes are SO HELPFUL!
    I’m a beginner/intermediate and need to be listening to French more than I usually do. These are a nice and easy way to listen to French. The quality of the audio is perfect. Thank you soooo much!
  • choye33
    Love these little talks. The latest episodes with the repeating passages and increasing speed of speaking are especially good. The speed of native French sounds so fast to me that I basically miss everything. Listening to a few sentences at a slower speed, then listening to them at a faster clip is fun. I can almost imagine a world where I could understand native speakers! Thanks for making this podcast, super grateful.
  • ashes_h
    Listen daily
    I just discovered this podcast and have listened daily for at least a month, often to the same episodes more than once. Thank you for offering a show that’s interesting, informative, and with language learning weaved in!

    Amazing French Learning Podcast
    After trying a few different methods, i came upon this podcast. My French was decent 35 years ago but haven’t used it recently so wanted to review before an upcoming trip. I am just in awe not only of her skill with language and method, but how broad her knowledge of diverse interesting subjects is! Worth the Patreon subscription for that alone. Merci mille fois!
  • Fabulous slow french no
    This podcast is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It is written extremely well, and the pace is perfect. I like the way the narrator inserts English, this is very helpful. I am so happy to find this!
  • NixJade
    A gem!
    She does a great job of making the input comprehensible. Even as a beginner, I can understand just enough to follow along! Love the challenge of her fast repetitions. Some episodes are more interesting to me than others, but she always does a great job presenting.
  • wanttofind
    I've just discovered and love love love
    I've just discovered little talk in the last few weeks and I'm really delighting in it. It's improving my vocabulary, I really appreciate the cultural context as well as the definitions, and I think my French is improving!
  • Nanran3
    Love it!
    Great podcast. SO very helpful for practicing my French. Your voice and accent are beautiful. Highly recommend!

    Excellent lessons in speaking French! Your explanations and precise pronunciation are a dream. To an American ear these talks are marvelous!

    Great learning curve with Nagisa - អរគុណ ច្រើន ពី កម្ពុជា
    I am a Cambodian . I used to study french but I lost track for over 10 years because I worked in English speaking organization and yes once a while only that I had chance to use french . Until one day I want to recall le français back . Indeed truly appreciated and enjoyed to this podcast because her slow and soft voice chere Nagisa with her great explanation in English on key words . Will continue to listen to finish all episodes . Tres grand Merci et je vous remercie pour votre aides sur this podcast.
  • eidicudiffyy
    Merci pour ce podcast
    Merci pour ce podcast. C’est exactement ce que je cherchais - quelqu’un qui parle lentement et clairement. Tres bien pour apprendre.
  • Mamajammamama
    Interesting and perfect for advanced beginners
    I love this podcasts. I appreciate the fact that she adds context and explanation in English without overdoing it. I am learning French without getting bored or feeling like the subject matter is too simple for me. These are subjects that I am inherently interested in hearing discussed rather than another podcast about ordering food at a restaurant. Keep it up! The mix of French and English is perfect!
  • SherryTeach
    Keep it all in French, please
    I am using Comprehensible Input to acquire languages. This would be an excellent podcast except for the constant breaks to explain in English. With a brief glossed vocabulary list and a transcript even early intermediate learners would be much better off without the English.
  • The Markó
    I am really enjoying these both the little nuances and secrets of actual French AND the ASMR feeling of the voice. I love your voice.
  • anhchir
    Content is great, the sound quality is not
    I absolutely love the content and thoroughness of this podcast! The explanations of phrases that aren’t necessarily intuitive are so helpful. I just wish there was less bass or something in the sound. She sounds just a bit dampened or muffled or something when you compare with other podcasts. I far prefer the sound quality when she’s interviewing people on the street even though there’s background noise, as compared to when she’s just recording herself.
  • Liciapru
    Thank you!
    These are are so helpful!
  • la la la23
    Helpful podcast!
    This is great listening practice and almost exactly what I was looking for. My only complaint is that the host pauses to translate into English too frequently. I prefer to listen and try to understand new words through context, then look at a vocab list or review, rather than having them translated for me right away. Otherwise a great learning tool!
  • Oolong Jude
    The best French language podcast as far as I’m concerned.
    Just wish there were more.
  • CM989
    Best French learning podcast
    I have listened to what feels like dozens of French language learning podcasts and I always come back to this one because it’s the best. I love the topics, speed, tone - all of it! The hostess’ voice is super soothing as well. This podcast is a gift!
  • K_Willa
    This is SUCH a great podcast for those of us learning French! I love how the host consistently adds context in English, so that those of us listening never feel completely out of the loop, and have an easier time following along. Plus, the topics covered are really great! Have recommended to many friends, and will continue to do so! Side note for the host: some of the earlier episodes I listened to and enjoyed, like the one on the Eiffel Tower, are now missing? Hopefully they will return soon! I enjoy re-listening to them, as I understand more and more each time! Thank you!!
  • shadiecon
    My favorite podcast!
    Fantastic podcast for intermediate French learners. The transcripts are super helpful, the subjects are very interesting and informative, and you will learn a lot of French sayings/culture as well. Thank you so much for your hard work!!
  • quaxmonster
    My favorite learning podcast
    I took a a few years of French in high school about 15 years ago, and want to improve my conversational French but have difficulty with listening. This is my favorite learning podcast! I like that the host clarifies words and concepts in English so I can make sure I got it, instead of just paraphrasing at the end. I find the subjects interesting, and her energy is delightful. She speaks slowly and clearly, which is excellent for building my confidence. The only challenge I have is that the audio is a little quiet.
  • Quiet Black Bells
    Lovely voice, helpful delivery
    My favorite French language learning podcast! She's easy to follow, speaks slow enough to understand and to repeat out loud, and has a pleasant tone of voice. A+!
  • Baerchen123
    Simply poorly done :/
    It is to say that the concept of the show is good but falters when it comes to its actual objective. The host constantly speaks English, translating words that need no translation, with that completely taking out the listener of the immersive experience. If she would manage to keep her English out of the show and instead add a brief sheet of vocabulary, shownotes in other words, the show already would be a lot better. Additionally she covers subjects that simply are dead boring, subjects that have been covered 1 million times by other podcast or gramnar books. More RL content, about herself, guests, personalities etc would be much more engaging.
    Review of Little Talk
    An extremely helpful language tool
  • DR MB
    Really fun and interesting. Plus she teaches you curse words!! Awesome
  • Todivetoday
    Great podcast
    Just stumbled onto great way to learn another language. My favorite part is that the speaker gives translation right away, without waiting reaching the end of the sentence or the whole conversation. That way you remember better what was said and don’t forget the whole speech.
  • hahsydoejbdgyaoappaooppp
    My favorite language-learning podcast
    This is my favorite language learning podcast by far!
  • gibrxe3?7$
    Very useful and interesting
    Excellent mix of fast and slow, with just the right amount of English explanation. As a young man,(about 45 years ago!), I spent a couple years in Paris, but I was focused on the study of music. I’ve always regretted not spending more time on the language. Still, it’s gratifying to see how much vocabulary I still remember. I also love that these podcasts often involve more specialized topics with words that are therefore new to me.
  • gowassel
    Trying to learn a new language is hard!
    When you’re in your 40’s, a new language doesn’t come as easily as when you were young. I’m a native English speaker, hablo espanol como una chica de cinco anos, and French is my third language to learn. This podcast helps put things into perspective and talks in a way that feels natural and unlike a classroom setting. Thanks for keeping it slow! (Mas despacio por favor!)
  • Presto_mania
    Thank you!
    This is a fantastic podcast, I appreciate your hard work so much!
  • 19atx98
    perfect in every way!
    I love Everything about this podcast: the relevant and interesting content, the vocabulary and useful expressions, explanations, the varied speed, the Voice, even the cat in the background! Thank you so much for your talent and hardwork ! I’m learning by leaps and bounds!
  • Maryanne Poo
    A Total Treat!!
    Such a wonderful way to keep up with my French! I love discovering new things about French history & culture while keeping up with politics and learning some FUN expressions!! Thank you for this BEAUTIFUL voice and super edifying podcast. C’est un cadeau merveilleux !

    私は本当にこれが好きです ~\(≧▽≦)/~
    私はまだフランス語を学んでいますが、本当に難しいですが、これは大いに役に立ちました。 O(∩_∩)O
  • Julie Doe
    Not for beginners
    Unfortunately these conversations are not slow.
  • PA ATL
    Exactly what I was looking for
    This is just what I needed, thank you, please keep making new episodes
  • Dylan Murtaugh
    This is the one.
    Simply put: This is that podcast you’ve been looking for. You learned French in high school, and you were pretty good at it. Maybe you visited France once and it well fairly well, even if you stuck mostly with the present tense. NOW, you just want to fill your head with French, and This Is It. Clear, fun, with just enough pausing to translate a word here and there to help you get through. Please make more and maybe some longer bonus episodes! Thank you for what you are doing.
  • therebexa
    An Incredible Learning Tool!
    This podcast is so helpful! I love to listen to it while I’m at work. Most “language learning” podcasts are just phrase repetition and I can’t stick with them. The host just talks about any subject she feels like that week and it holds my attention as well as helps me practice my listening skills. This is perfect for intermediate French speakers.
  • BigD0830
    Excellent for real, conversational French
    I’ve been living in France for 3 years and still need to improve my conversational French - this podcast is perfect! She tackles real subjects and discusses them in the way that locals actually talk. She takes the time to break down the vocabulary so it really sticks. I’m a huge fan, it’s helped me a lot already!
  • Agnis lover!! Olivia L.
    Little Talk in Slow French
    Excellent diction, tone & speed in French from the moderator of “little talk in slow French” I love how she translates only important & obscure terms without breaking the rhythm of the conversation. She is my favorite podcast speaker in French. Topics are fascinating as well! Highly recommend this podcast!
  • Carol Healine
    Very enlightening and helpful pobcast!
    Thank you so much for enlightening us about French cultures and customs and making French so much easier to digest at the same time!!!

    My Fave French Podcast
    I’ve listened to my share of French-learning podcasts and there are a lot of good ones out there but this one takes the cake. Clear and simple delivery, perfect length of episodes, no long tangents, and the host explains in English phrases/words that might not easily translate and it is always just the phrase I was struggling with. Brava for such a pleasant podcast experience! Bonne courage!
  • Lindsay623867
    Great Podcast
    I just discovered this podcast and already love it. It’s perfect for anyone who knows beginner/intermediate French and wants to improve their listening comprehension (and learn some new vocabulary). Highly recommend!
  • emily minerva
    transcripts are really helpful!
    the transcripts are very helpful but even without, the show is already 5 stars!
  • Vicky1648
    Perfect for French learners
    I took French for 10 years in school but since graduating I am less fluent. This podcast is a great way to regain the familiarity with listening to spoken French that I had lost. I also love this podcast because the host discusses the topic of the day slowly, initially, while defining words that the listeners may not understand and then recaps the topic at the end in a typical French rate of speech. The topics are also interesting and wide ranging.
  • Freedom Russell
    Learn while I drive
    I’ve been learning French in preparation to travel to France next year. I can read and speak French adequately However listening to French is poor. This podcast is perfect on my way to work and back everyday to become familiar with cadence, tone and overall conversation. Thank you for putting f this out.
  • KPH1975
    Perfect for advanced beginners
    I took a few years of French in school thirty years ago and have been brushing up with Duolingo lately. I’ve always been much better at reading and writing than listening and speaking. This podcast is just the right level for me to feel challenged (and learn something new every episode) without getting confused or overwhelmed. Every time I come close, she breaks in with a quick English explanation of what she just said. I love it.
