  1. 5 out of 5

    A Moi Paris 5 is the fourth book I’ve used in this series, though I also have purchased and enjoyed Une Semaine a Paris and Une Semaine a Paimpol.

    I find Camille’s presentation excellent, easy to understand and with sufficient vocal variation amongst the characters to differentiate them without needing to check the accompanying texts.

    Through the A Moi Paris series, the steady development of the story line about the three girls is an excellent way to enhance understanding, as the inclusion of more complex ideas, vocabulary and grammar is set in a familiar environment, so the listener’s (and reader’s) own visualisation helps comprehension immensely.

    Book 5 seems, to me at least, to be starting a transition towards a more normal speed in the conversations, and has thus helped my understanding of things such as movies or the TV news from Paris.

    I often listen to Camille’s recordings as I drive to and from work (about 30 minutes each way) and frequently find myself having wonderful little moments when hearing a phrase or expression suddenly makes more sense! I find that I can then incorporate them into my own spoken french, giving me more nuanced or different ways to express ideas.

    I should note that I have deliberately only ever listened to the “Street” versions of the audio books as my objective is to be able to (without needing to translate) hear, understand (and use myself) the french that is actually used by the French, instead of the far more formal written french that is typically taught in classes.

    For those starting to transition to more advanced understanding of real spoken french, I am happy to recommend this book (and indeed the entire series) without reservation.

    After a few years of studying French these simple stories are great to keep everything I’ve learned fresh in my memory. Thanks Camille Oliver and team.
