Episode 45 – How to get the most out of your language partner




Welcome to the forty-fifth episode of the French Blabla podcast where we will cover tips to increase your fluency while boosting your way of learning. These last episodes have been a little bit special as they didn’t teach you French per se but they are here to improve your learning environment. Today, I’d like to continue on the topic of finding a language partner to talk to since it’s a big struggle for many of you. In episode 42, I shared my tips to be able to find a conversation partner. If you haven’t listened to it yet, go check it out and grab yourself a French friend. However, finding somebody is only the first step in an efficient language practice. There are some other important things to consider. In this episode, I’d like to share with you a few strategies that you will need to get the most out of your language practice.

Episode 43 – Set your French learning goals for success – With special guest, Ines




Welcome to the forty-third episode of the French Blabla podcast where we will cover tips to increase your fluency while boosting your way of learning. It’s been almost two months that 2021 has started and I haven’t even asked you if you had any good French goals for this year. Every new year is always an opportunity to start fresh and I thought it would be a nice change on the podcast to have a guest. Her name is Ines and she used to be a French teacher, a regular one, just like me, years ago. Now she’s a French coach and she specializes in neurolanguage. She has kindly accepted my invitation to share with us her expertise. If you need a kick in the butt and/or some guidance because you’re a bit lost with all the things you need to learn, then stay tuned and listen to the episode.
