Working on improving my French C, I am always happy to find interesting podcasts, websites, newspapers etc. as well as recordings of conferences and speeches I could use for training purposes.
Would you recommend some resources that you particularly enjoy or find very useful for conference interpreters with French C or those wanting to add it? I think I am not the only one who could use some good ideas. Maybe it would make sense to turn the question into a community wiki?
Personally, I am looking especially for media about the EU matters but I will appreciate any recommendations and inspirations, including those going beyond news/politics/economics.
My current choices (fairly usual but maybe someone will find that helpful): Le Figaro, Le Monde, Courrier international, Alternatives économiques, TV5 Monde, RFI, RTBF, France24, France Info, France Inter, Europe1 (recommendations for specific podcasts are more than welcome, chances are I miss some of the best ones).
I agree Joanna, listening to interesting stuff and practice material are 2 different things. Please dear moderators reinstate this question!
To be going on with... try the following in French
College de France (very high level univ lectures) http://www.college-de-france.fr/site/podcasts/#|p=../podcasts/index.htm|
Litteratureaudio.com (excerpts of literature read to you - podcasts at the bottom of the page) http://www.litteratureaudio.com/
L'invite de RTL (current affairs interviews) http://www.rtl.fr/emission/l-invite-de-rtl
RFI Afrique (for news about things that don't make the news in Europe and in a slightly different French accent) feed://www.rfi.fr/radiofr/podcast/journalAfrique.asp
