Product Description

Now you can improve or maintain your French with Bien-dire, the bi-monthly audio magazine for people who love France and the French language.

Published six times a year, Bien-dire not only helps you improve your fluency, it also helps you understand what it is to be French.

Bien-dire - The Printed Magazine

The 52-page glossy magazine is packed full of lively articles and in-depth interviews about France and French culture. There are regular features on a range of topics including travel, business, the arts, cinema, politics, sport, cuisine, popular culture, plus profiles on leading personalities and issues making the news.

Alongside each article in French key words and phrases are glossed into English. Every feature is carefully chosen and graded for difficulty so you can assess your progress. Each article will keep you up to date with idiomatic expressions as well as practical information about contemporary life in France.

Bien-dire - The Audio (CD or MP3)

The accompanying audio CD (or MP3 audio download) is the perfect tool for improving listening comprehension and building confidence in speaking French. Put together by a team of professional narrators, the 60 minutes of audio provides well-paced readings of the key articles from the magazine, together with pronunciation and intonation exercises. The audio component of the subscription will enable you to improve significantly your ability to understand French as it's really spoken.

What's more, because it’s a periodical, your study of French is always maintained and you won’t forget what you’ve worked so hard to learn; this is why Bien-dire has become an invaluable, authentic resource for thousands of teachers and students alike.

My students love Bien Dire: it provides them with continuous learning
I regularly use Bien Dire with my students. It is an excellent learning aid for my intermediate French students. The magazine is well structured and illustrated and it has a clear user-friendly layout. It is well thought out, for example, a colour-coded system indicates the level of each article or exercise. This offers students the option to work through the articles from the simplest to the more complex and in doing so gives them a sense of progress. The content of Bien Dire is both varied and up to date. The articles cover a wide range of themes ranging from tourism, history, food, contemporary life in France, to major political stories and even a little celebrity news. The articles give a really good, up to the minute, snap shot of life in France with all the key words and expressions highlighted in the glossary sections that go with each article. My students love Bien Dire: it provides them with continuous learning in between my 1-to-1 lessons with them. They enjoy the topics and find the vocabulary lists very helpful.

Bien-dire: the perfect resource for teachers
As a French primary school teacher who has been living in the U.K. for 20 years, I was asked 3 years ago by friends and acquaintances if I could do " French conversation " with them . I was struggling a little bit to find the right support to use with them as they are at different levels, when by luck, I came across an advert for your magazine. Straight away I looked it up on line and decided that it was the perfect tool for me to offer them diversity. On top of that the CD is a bonus for those who struggle with pronunciation. So far out of my 5 students, 2 of them have already decided also to subscribe to your magazine for a year and we are now looking forward to the next issue (102) to learn more interesting facts, expressions and discover new places.

Review by Sylvie Guillot / (Posted on 05/08/2015)
After several years with BD I continue to find the content generally excellent and really helpful.
I can speak French fairly well but I want to be able to pass myself of as "not easily identifiable as English (if not to appear French!) and the detailed and most importantly up to date commentaries and stories are just right for this. Modern usage of words (some of which previously would have meant something different), the use of English words which are now current in modern French conversation. I go to Le Mans each year and my French pals there are regularly very complimentary about my spoken French and especially when I can use a colloquialism that really fits the conversation.

If there is a constructive criticism it would be that some content - in the jokes section has been repeated and occasionally the editing of the CD leaves unusually long gaps in what is meant to be a spontaneous conversation. Pretty small beer against an overall quatre etoiles! Bien fait Bien Dire.
