Listen on

Episode notes

As usual this week we will be talking about the main news in France and also digging into some interesting subjects that really help explain the country and its culture to you, our listeners.

Up first we'll bring you the main talking points from the week including a look at the new president of the French far right. He's only 27 years old. Also will there be Christmas lights in French cities and towns this year and why is Miss France in hot water?

We'll also bring you up to date on France's new immigration bill including a plan to introduce French language tests for certain residency permits. Should foreign residents in France be nervous about this?

We'll also explore what a planned new passport checking system, due to be rolled out in France and across the EU next year, will mean for anyone travelling to the country.
