France 24 is an international, Paris-based news and current affairs television channel launched in 2006 whose mission statement is to “cover international current events from a French perspective and to convey French values throughout the world”.
Almost a decade later, the channel has certainly found a niche for itself and this impressively slick mobile app provides a great mix of the latest Francocentric news and magazine-style reportage features plus sports, business and weather.
Most importantly, everything is presented in a choice of English, French or Arabic. This is key – we believe that a great way to learn the language is to switch to French mode and follow the story with the accompanying pictures. You can also add favourite stories and set up notifications for headlines.
