Pick up French news from the kids
By Craig McGinty on Oct 31, 2008 in Learn French.
I HAVE always thought that one of the best ways to learn French is to follow news stories as you can gain a quick understanding either from the images or by reading full sentences.
The correct use of grammar is also usually high up on the agenda, and so you would expect the same from
les Clés de l'Actualité Junior, which provides news stories for children.
The site offers quick and simple updates from France and overseas on what's happening, written in easy to understand French that will also help you pick up some new vocabulary.
