Listening stations! Sussex students broadcasting in French on French Radio London

First year students studying French as an elective created their own micro radio shows in French which were broadcast on French Radio London in December 2013.

Through this creative radio project students explored the production of a mini show from start to finish. Students worked in teams to decide a topic, design a concept, script, record, edit and enhance each show. French Radio London were impressed with the results and broadcast all three themes (click for podcasts):

  • Discussion of the French film Intouchables (aired 3 December 2013)
  • School uniform (10 December 2013)
  • Interviewing ‘freshers’ at the University of Sussex (17 December 2013)

The collaborative project was made possible thanks to the generosity of staff in Sussex's School of Media, Film and Music who provided access to recording facilities and gave up their time to induct and guide Patricia Couturas, Tutorial Fellow in French at the Sussex Centre for Language Studies, and the French for Professional Purposes students through the process.
