My name is Laetitia and I have been running this podcast since November 2006.
I’m French, I live in Bois-Colombes and I have always lived close to
Paris. I’m married to Pietro, from Lyon and of Italian origins, and we
have three daughters, known as « Les trois chipies » : Micaela born in
2005, Felicia born in 2007 and Lisa born in 2009.
Besides the podcast, I work as a self-employed entrepreneur in the
publishing industry. I write phrase books for professionnals that I
publish at Editions Café Anglais, my own publishing entity.

One Thing in a French Day is unfailingly informative, educational, and entertaining—and also warm and personal. You generously share your observations and experiences, including pertinent (and often amusing) stories about your friends and family. Each episode has taught me something new. I have learned about daily life in France, French geography, food, the education system, what’s happening in Paris, and so much more. I’ve learned new vocabulary, phrases, and usages, & I know how how to pronounce them correctly from listening to you. There is warmth and humor in your podcasts, and I am sure that many of your listeners enjoy, as I do, “watching” your daughters grow up. Your newsletter is a great learning tool that adds tremendous value to your podcast. Further, the reliable continuation of your podcast is remarkable. Some podcasts fizzle out after a season or two, but not yours. You have continued year after year, with enthusiasm.
Dear Laetitia, I wanted to write and thank you for helping improve my spoken French. Three girlfriends and I are on the ferry back to the UK having spent 3 days cycling on the Cherbourg Peninsula. We've had an amazing time and couldn’t believe how tranquil and beautiful the countryside is. It was my first trip to France since listening to your podcasts and I was delighted (and quite surprised myself) how more confident I was at speaking French. I’ve never been one to keep quiet in France, having lived there in my early 20's and loving all things French, but it was quite a revelation! Thank you so much, they are enormous fun to listen to and help to keep the french side of my brain in good working order! Best wishes
The French Day podcast is super cool. It's like getting a slice of daily life in France delivered to your door. The episodes are short and manageable and Laetitia's anecdotes are always colorful and amusing. I find that I end up learning French the way a small child does, by hearing it spoken and intuitively putting together the puzzle of verbs and vocabulary. I highly recommend it!
J’adore ce podcast, c’est un rayon de soleil dans ma journée qui me fait du bien. Quand j’ai commencé à l’écouter je ne pouvais pas comprendre même l’introduction mais maintenant je comprends presque tout. Merci beaucoup Laetitia!
I derive great pleasure from listening to your slices of daily life. It is an enjoyable way of improving French language skills, in particular being able to “hear” and understand the spoken word of everyday communication. The available accompanying text certainly enhances the learning experience as well. The very varied subject matter maintains my interest and teaches much about aspects of French family life, culture & heritage, city and country. Un grand merci à vous!
One thing in a French day is a great podcast. It has really helped my FRENCH. It’s a fun and interesting way to learn new words and familiar phrases.
I listen to the podcasts " One thing in a French Day" in order to keep up to date with spoken French. It is far more enjoyable than studying from a textbook and I find the 'Trois tournures de phrases utiles' super useful!
