TV is a great way to practice and improve your language skills. Learning French through TV is very easy – all you have to do is sit back and watch.
Unfortunately we don’t always have time to watch hours of French TV all day to hone our French language skills.
The Zapping is a daily summary by Canal + in France of what happened in French television that day. Its a quick revision to improve your French skills but also to keep up to date with French politics and culture. Keep up with the Zapping and you won’t have to worry about a French friend making a joke about a French current-event that you’re not aware of.
If you keep watching the Zapping (there are also weekly-review Zappings if daily is too much for you) you will notice recurring themes, and get to know French current events well enough to form an opinion and participate in discussions on the topic.
