Radio-Canada makes French-language audio and video more accessible

More good news for learners and teachers of French.

Radio-Canada, Canada's French-language national radio and television service, has redesigned its website to make its audio and video offerings more accessible.

For French learners, Radio-Canada provides a rich source of quality live and on-demand radio and television programs, primarily concerning, news, information, culture, science and environment. Listings of Radio-Canada's podcasts ("baladodiffusion") and RSS feeds are also provided.

Of particular interest are the evening television news broadcasts (Le Téléjournal) which are kept for two months after being broadcast.

Unfortunately, the video quality is far from state-of-the-art for Internet multimedia as demonstrated by France 24. Hopefully, this will be improved in the future.
