Introducing the High Five French podcast

Join learner Emma and native speaker Mathilde, our two young presenters, in this new series from Radio Lingua. In ten short lessons, children will be able to pick up the basics of French and learn greetings, how to introduce themselves, counting, days of the week, how to talk about their family where they live and their likes and dislikes. The podcast is aimed at learners between the ages of 7-11 who have no French, or who have just started French at school.

High Five French Membership

The free podcast is only the beginning! High Five French is a full forty-lesson video course with a range of materials allowing children to learn and understand the French language. Purchasing a membership gives access to the following elements for each of the forty lessons:

  • video episode: join Emma and Mathilde on location in France in our video episodes. The video presents the language covered in the lesson in a fun way, allowing children first to hear the French word or phrase, and then to see it on the screen as Mathilde encourages viewers to repeat the word and practise their French.
  • the High Five French Radio Show: this bonus audio recording provides further practice of the words and phrases covered in the main video lesson, and also provides some bonus vocabulary. Each episode of the radio show finishes with a musical review of the words and phrases of the lesson.
  • activity sheets: we’ve included two activity sheets for each lesson, allowing children to practise the written language in fun puzzles and activities.
  • transcripts: there are full transcripts of the video lessons with explanations of any unfamiliar French words.
  • notes for parents: if you’re not familiar with French, it can be difficult to support your child in their learning. Our notes for parents for each lesson will help you help your child learn! There are explanations of the difficult words and phrases and background information on the language and culture of the French-speaking world.
