THERE is no doubt that improving your French language skills will help when living in France.
However, pouring over books and dictionaries can be a little tiresome, but the opportunity to listen to conversations and work on your understanding can prove useful.
That is what you can do on the Learn French by Podcast website, which has short audio clips to help with things such as getting your mobile phone repaired, booking travel tickets and even asking someone if you can take their photo.
The man behind the site is former teacher Hugh Nagle, who drew inspiration for his podcast idea after seeing a priest on the television explain how he has used the technology to boost attendance at church.
So in true podcast style I had a chat with Hugh and you can listen to the ten minute interview, just hit play.
