    By far the best investment you will make. I have worked with multiple courses including Rosetta Stone, the complete Pimsleur courses, and many others – none are as packed full and complete. You get listening, speaking, grammar, vocabulary and you can use it for developing writing and translating skills. Camille’s voice is a delight: clear and authentic. And the app that delivers the material was developed by her husband, Olivier. It’s awesome and works so well, keeping your place as you return to the material again and again. For your listening, it has a toggle: “enunciated” or “modern french”. It stores all of your purchases in the one French Today app. I consider myself at intermediate level, and it took me 2 months to thoroughly complete L1 + L2; it contains that much material. I will eventually complete L1 – L8, and this year I just added the Verb drills and stories.

    I am incredibly happy with this audiobook series. For 3.5 years, I’ve been trying to resurrect all the French I knew as a kid (I took it for 13 years and then forgot much of what I learned). I’ve tried working with language partners, taking French yoga classes via Zoom, and reading French books for learners. All of that has helped a little, but this series is a thousand times more effective. My favorite aspects:

    • The free audiobook was quite a generous gift to people trying to decide if the series was right for them. I started learning right away!
    • The stories are interesting, fun, and well written. I love how they build on each other—and how the characters tease each other.
    • I love that I have been able to start from scratch, relearning the basics and quickly advancing to more sophisticated material. It has been a relief to have someone break down a massive amount of information into small, digestible bits.
    • It’s terrific that each story has a new thematic focus in terms of vocabulary, as well as new grammar points.
    • I love the way Camille encourages us to speak out loud in French and to push past the fear of that. I do so while walking my dogs, and I’m sure I seem “folle,” but I don’t care!
    • I love how Camille has expert insight into what learners get wrong and how she warns us not to make the same mistakes. Nevertheless, she’s always respectful of learners. I don’t feel talked down to at all.
    • Despite all the French I was exposed to when I was young, I never heard “Je suis” pronounced the way Camille does. The emphasis on modern French pronunciation is invaluable.
    • No matter how basic or advanced the lessons are, there’s something for me to learn. And there’s a lot I already know. Realizing that makes me more confident.
    • The explanations are incredibly clear/logical. Maybe they’ll stick this time!
    • For me it’s essential to rely mainly on my ears, only glancing at the written material when I have a question. I am not terribly auditory, and I’ve spent far more time reading French than hearing it, so listening to an audiobook exercises my weakest muscles. And I’m so much stronger already!

    I have spent many happy hours with these audiobooks, and I know I have many more to come. I can’t praise them highly enough, and I’ve already spread the word to friends. One sighed and said, “But where do you start? There’s just so much to relearn.” I told her that that’s what’s great about this series—someone has figured out how to organize the mess for us!

    The only word of caution I would offer a prospective customer is that although this series is perfect for someone who has studied French in the past, it would not be suitable for someone who knows no French at all. That person would need to go much more slowly.

    We are a U.S. homeschooling family. I took French in high school but couldn’t speak very much French after many years of study. I just purchased A Moi Paris (beginner) as well as several other audiobooks for beginners to use with my two children. I am so excited to use these products because they are audio based; I am confident my kids will learn so much more than I did and be able to speak and understand lots of French. Thank you so much for such amazing products!!!

    This is without a doubt the greatest, most entertaining and efficient language learning tool I’ve ever stumbled upon!! I mean especially the product “à moi Paris” is a must-have if you’re looking for something that includes spot on easy access translations, vocab and audio all in one place, preparing you for the the way French is actually spoken (not the way its used in the schools text books)

    I last studied French as an 11 year old, many, many years ago, the beginner’s audio book is very well structured and engaging and I’ve absorbed a lot in three months. Camille’s voice has a tone and pitch that keeps you focused, and I find it very easy to complete a 45 minute to 1 hour learning session without it feeling like a chore.
    I’ve never been the best academic student but I’m enjoying the learning along with periodic weekends in Brittany.

    I have been studying French with other audio methods for a while. However, I felt my improvement was very slow for the effort that I was putting into it. I decided to give French Today a try and I am glad I did.

    Although I could have considered my French level as beginners/intermediate, I started with the beginners course and I am learning quite a bit from it. The lessons are short, but comprehensive and entertaining overall.

    What I like the most about the course is that Camille uses common everyday language and pronunciation. So I am learning how nowadays French people speak

    I have been learning French on and off for 10 years. I can read very well. I could write better with more practice. When I listen to French radio online, or visit Paris, I cannot follow what is being said. It’s too fast!

    I have been using the French Today book for more than 2 months now. I take my time with the modules. I have definitely found an improvement with my listening. I imagine that my speaking will be better too. I haven’t had an opportunity to test it out on anyone French yet.

    The books are enjoyable to follow and give you practice in all four learning skills: reading, listening, writing & speaking.

    I find that the flexibility of an audio book that I can access on my computer or my phone very useful. I am a mature student and a shift worker.

    I have waited a couple of months before writing this review because I wanted to give an honest opinion.

    I hope you enjoy the books and the course as much as I do.

    I enjoy your audiobooks – they present contemporary, spoken French, usefule in daily situations. I am very fond of Camille’s emails and short lessons – short enough to remember the useful hints and brief conversations. I apprecaite the amount of work that you two do – the lessons are simple yet full of useful phrases, it’s also nice to see Camille’s happy face and get to know you two and Leyla. Interacting with you often feels very intimate even though naturally you would have a great numbers of followers. It feels nice to be a part of your cyrcle even if it is only virtual and pretend! Thank you very much for your great effort and honest work to provide quality outcome!
