    À Moi Paris Level 5 is a fantastic novel. I would definitely rate it at 5 stars. Each chapter uses your slogan, “repetition is the key” – since the story follows nicely from the previous À Moi Paris series. The novel very succinctly explains grammar which is used in the various chapters; and allows one to practice such grammar with given exercises. The story is written with everyday useful French; and unlike some old-fashioned texbooks it is very helpful at using tenses and rules with great examples, explanations and attention to detail. It is a real bonus to have Camille’s very clear voice, in the accompanying audio, which offers a speed level also. I am looking forward to À Moi Paris Level 6 – with the “Twist” which has been mentioned in Level 5!? This is a great way to learn to speak and write French; and also a novel one can read at different stages too if, like most people, one is busy with lots of other things in life.

    I have found your products to be the best for upper level French. Other courses I’ve tried are beginner or intermediate beginner., and it was frustrating to not be able to go beyond that level. Keep them coming!

    I have just begun level 5 and so far it has clarified many points which have until now been a little confusing. A case in point being the use of depuis pendant il y a etc. An excellent summary. Why do so many teachers make it so difficult?
    My only very small adverse comment would be; Why does the spoken dialogue and the written dialogue not keep in step? It is a little annoying when you listen, eyes shut of course, but then quickly want to verify something and it is not possible to give a glance down to do that because sound and vision are out of sync. Small point which may or may not be possible to change but the app. is great. Many thanks Ken

    I absolutely love this course!…At age 70, I’ve been learning to speak, write and understand French for about 4 years now. I have employed many ways and techniques in learning, including, Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur, Duolingo,, and taking some semi-private beginning and intermediate classes with my friend who is French, lives most of the year in France, but who vacations in Florida for several months in the winter, (which explains how we met). This course is comparable to the best.
    I’m a retired Reading Specialist , who has worked for many years with children, grades K-8 , with reading difficulties, and realize what a powerful tool audio-books have become in helping children to read more fluently and with comprehension. This applies also to helping those who wish to learn a foreign language. This course provides the opportunity for one to read along with text while listening to it, in short manageable chapters, to have the translation at one’s fingertips, and to review at will. (You’ll be able to pronounce the words and enunciate correctly..to sound intelligible!)
    Chapters include review of verb tenses, and grammar instruction and exercises comparable to what one would expect to receive in a class taught by a competent French teacher.
    Thank you so much for offering these excellently crafted and presented courses….My next purchases will be the review of the French verbs!

    I have been learning French for some years now and I bought “A Moi Paris – Level 5” several months ago. I am very happy with my purchase. When I was a Physics student many years ago I found that there were three things which were crucial to the learning of any new concept; one was to find a good explanation of the idea, either from a good teacher or a good book, the next was to have some typical examples to look at to take it out of the abstract and make it real, and the last thing was to have some test problems to work on (with answers) to assure myself that I really understood the concept. I was delighted to find that Camille has also taken this approach in “A Moi Paris”, there are very clear discussions of many grammatical points which I have previously found a little difficult to understand, there are interesting and useful stories in French (with English translations) which illustrate the use of these points (and provide new and useful vocabulary) and then there are examples to test your understanding (with answers). All of this is available in both audio (at two speeds) and print formats. It’s an excellent resource for improving your French and I recommend it highly. This is definitely a five star product.

    I’ve used all five audiobook levels. They are exceptional in many ways. They are well constructed and sequentially planned to help you progress, step by step, in learning the French language. I recently enrolled in French classes at the University of Illinois and found these audiobooks to very valuable to my understanding of French as it is spoken, not to mention vocabulary. I listen to one of these audiobooks on a daily basis as I work out at gym. I’ve been doing this for the past several years. As Camille says, repetition is the key to success.

    Also, I love the audiotapes on verb drills and on pronunciation. Very, very helpful and valuable… 5 Stars!

    I have used other titles in this series as well as two poetry items and two Fairy Tale items. I have always been very satisfied with products from this company, so when I saw this new title advertised I purchased it and am delighted. I love the detail and grammar behind the stories. These products have helped me improve my abilities in French.

    I have the entire À Moi Paris series so far. The stories are realistic, enjoyable, and hold one’s interest.
    The option of different listening speeds insure that listeners of different levels are neither overwhelmed nor unchallenged.
    It’s a very well thought out; wonderful tool for learning and/or review.

    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.
