There are many things you need to know about French subject pronouns, and the glided pronunciation of verbs. Because we are not robots, explanation itself is not enough: you need to practice, practice with audio so that the rules and pronunciation become a reflex. This is exactly what this 3 hours and 24 minutes audio masterclass provides.
If you are a beginner student, this French audio lesson is a must for you. But I am positive even advanced students can benefit from it – specially the glided pronunciation and reflexive verbs chapters.
I have several books and audio courses on French Verbs, but Camille’s are the bestJohn M. Hine, MD - Idaho, USA

When should you use 'est-ce que'? When should you use inversion?
Asking questions is the base of all conversations. But students of French often have trouble asking questions fast enough, or fail to understand questions they are being asked. The 'street' way of asking questions is never studied in French classes, but it is the most common way native speakers of French ask questions nowadays.
An excellent presentation of the different ways to frame questions...- John Chamberlain, Arlington, MA, USA

Did you know it’s often appropriate to kiss on the cheeks to greet a person you meet for the first time ? When can you use “comment ça va ?” or “comment vas-tu ?”. Are you sure you understand all the subtleties between tu and vous?
French politeness is SO much more complicated than it seems. The words are not too difficult, but they are very precise, and there are many glidings. And if you hesitate on something that seems so basic, French people are going to doubt you speak any French at all or worst, get offended! You need to quickly identify the situation and the appropriate greetings because you can’t make a first impression twice!
