Watching French news online

There are various sites that allow you to watch the news in French online and I try and watch a bit whenever I can. If you are trying to learn a language, you definitely want to get as much exposure to it as possible and I think the news is a great way of doing that, even if you don't understand everything.

I'd particularly recommend http://www.euronews.net/fr/ as it has lots of short segments so you can easily watch a particular story a few times over and it has transcriptions, so I often just listen at first, then listen again and follow the transcript. Watch out though, because the transcripts are usually not 100% correct and that can catch you out. It's normally good enough though and I find it very useful.
