French Listening Resources: Listen & Read to Improve your French Comprehension - Download mp3s & Transcripts Listening to French while reading along with the transcript is a great way to improve your comprehension as well as your pronunciation. The following authentic French listening resources in video and mp3 formats were created by native speakers of French and they are free for teachers and students to download and/or use in class. All of them are spontaneous speech - nothing was scripted or rehearsed, and some were even recorded without the speaker's prior knowledge for an eavesdropping effect. Many resources also have fill-in-the-blank (cloze) exercises so you can test your comprehension skills. French commercials are also available with transcripts, as well as video slideshows of informal French. (If you're interested in learning French slang, there is another tutorial for that!)
