Each monthly audiomagazine is produced entirely in France by professional broadcasters and
journalists. It consists of an hour-long programmme in French on audio cassette
or CD, containing news, features and interviews reflecting what's going on in France. Previous guests on the French programme
include the politicians Francois Mitterand and Jacques Chirac and
the actors Juliette Binoche and Brigitte Bardot. Interviews with the actress, Juliette Binoche and the round-the-world balloonist, Bertrand
Piccard, features on the power struggle within the National Front, the Monet exhibition in Paris, and what it’s like to be black in France are among the recent segments.
A booklet containing a word-for-word transcript and an extensive glossary accompanies the audio component. In addition to translations into English of difficult words and phrases, the glossaries contain extensive biographical, historical,
political and cultural notes prepared by experienced editors,
many of whom also write for some of the world's most prestigious newspapers and magazines. An optional study supplement with listening exercises and grammar drills is also available in each issue.
