The Perfect French with Dylane


French Listening Practice – 50 sentences

Improve your listening skills with this French Listening Practice

French Listening Practices are a great way to improve your listening skills in any language. French being a little bit more tricky (spoken and written French are like two different languages) than others, it’s great to be able to read the sentence and listen to it at the same time. 

In the French Listening Practice, I read 50 sentences at 2 different paces, slow and normal. 

To listen to the audio, simply click on the little but player button on the left of the sentence. I read slowly the first time, and at a normal pace the second time.
