I need a good resource to train my listening comprehension of French language. I decide to find some podcasts of 2-3 minutes which is appropriate for transcribing. Now I am a beginner and newsinslowfrench is quite appropriate for me. But since I need to listen to normal speed French eventually, I need to gradually add some materials to transcribe, something similar to Scientific American 60 Seconds in English.

I googled but something called 1 minute French isn't appropriate. I need something completely in French, including but not necessarily restricted to news.

Any suggestion? Thanks!

There are dozens of exercises here. They include a transcript, so you can listen and try transcribing yourself, then compare what you've done to the official version.

Bon courage !


Hundreds of videos here, mostly on physics-related topics and most of them just a few minutes long.
