I always use this one: http://larousse.fr/correcteur
I switched from bonpatron because Larousse kind of feels more reliable :P

Many thanks for the suggestion; I had not thought of that.

I don't see Europe1 on the list for podcasts/radio: http://www.europe1.fr/

Also Podclub, http://podclub.ch/, has ~10 minute podcasts with active transcripts in French, German, Spanish, Italian and English. Their app is good as well.

My favourite self-study friendly coursebook for classrooms has been Édito so far (the best across languages). I used the very first one in class ages ago, it was a B2 book, very systematic yet modern and nice. I suppose the later editions are likely to be just as good (I've looked into some of the books). This from their website sounds good: "Un cahier d'activités méthodologiques, pilier de perfectionnement lexical et linguistique : des productions écrites, des exposés oraux, des fiches méthodologiques, une épreuve DALF, les corrigés commentés indispensable pour prolonger le travail en autonomie."

But why am I saying it: Didier is publishing a C1 level Édito this month! So, this will be the second course of this kind for the C levels.

So, if you have been considering following a CEFR labeled course series and the lack of the advanced level book has been keeping you away from Édito (as noone likes to switch series, I believe), you can now have another look at it and perhaps become another happy user. No need to settle for Alter Ego anymore :-)

some of the writing ideas there are excellent!
