Improve your French listening comprehension and your writing skills with our “dictées” (dictations) with audio links!
Listen to the passage that is being read, then check to see if you’ve made any mistakes. Learn from the mistakes you’ve made in view of avoiding making the same ones the next time.
As it is not always easy to find a French person who would have the time and the availability to dictate a French text to a student, we have, in every issue of our e-publication French Accent Magazine since its start in December 2006, published in most issues two dictées. These French dictations have two different levels: débutant (beginner) and intermédiaire (intermediary). Each of them is associated with an audio link of a person reading slowly the text, exactly as a French teacher would do in a class.
In this e-book, we reproduce all of them, and we encourage our readers and students to try to do them, if they want to pursue the goal of writing, one day, like a French person.
If you click on the audio links below each dictée, you will be able to listen to the passage that will be read at a moderate rate and with each sentence repeated twice. You can, of course, listen to the recordings as many times as you like, but we recommend that you try and limit yourselves to two repetitions.
