Reading C1, Politics, History & Economics, Sports & Leisure, Listening or Seeing C1
Yes, I totally empathize with you. Believe it or not, after some time you won't even notice how fast they speak anymore. Just stick with it. Also, I notice you tried a C1 exercise. Try an easier level.
I dont understand
You can adjust the playback speed. I listened at 75%. It helped some. In my experience. documentary films usually have a slower pace to begin with; but not this one. C1 is a stretch for me, but why not stretch, once in a while.
I know . . . It's so frustrating. The French are behind the times with respect to the concept that slower speech really helps the non-native speaker. I've expressed this to many French friends and French instructors over the years and they just refuse to concede this truth (French stubbornness I guess). I also love how "easy French" videos and lessons are often very difficult for the beginner. Usually, the response is "well, we want to make it authentic."
