    I have tried to master French, off and on, since High School. Lockdowns encouraged me to re-engage. I am so delighted to have found FrenchToday. Even with a reasonable understanding of grammar, it has been soooo valuable to revisit the basics from the ground up. My pronunciation and understanding of Modern French are improving rapidly. Thank you

    I have been studying French for a while now on my own. I have been using the French Today blogs to look up some specific topics and subtleties about the language. Because the blogs have become my go-to resource when I don’t understand something, I decided to try out the courses. I started with the beginner course because I didn’t want to miss anything. I’m so glad I did. Even though I have use products that I have been very happy with, the À Moi Paris beginner course has been a very pleasant surprise. There were some significant holes in my learning that the course covered in very helpful ways. I wish I had started with the French Today courses. There were so many things that I didn’t understand in other beginning courses. For instance, I didn’t understand why I was seeing a noun paired with the definite article (le/la/les) in some cases but not in others (“le français” vs “français”). The explanation was included with the introduction of definite articles.

    Á Moi Paris is like a Lego kit but instead of Legos, it is built with French words, grammar, and such. This “French Lego world” has been so carefully crafted that the student that ventures into it will find a beautifully clear map with enough redundancy to make it feel familiar instead of confusing and scary.

    I’m am really enjoying this series so far! The various types of audio for each audiobook is very helpful for beginners such as myself. I’m actually only listening to the stories themselves and not the lesson portion as I’m trying to learn more by immersion. So far, this is going pretty well. I’m very pleased with the audiobooks!

    This is the entry level French course that I was looking for, slow paced and easy to understand. Camille has put a lot of effort into introducing French to the novice and I really enjoy listening to her voice.

    First of all, I want to congratulate you on a truly outstanding language learning audiobook app. It is so convenient and works so well. Nice and clean and easy to use. The availability of multiple speaking speeds/styles is brilliant. Sometimes I just listen (and repeat) – this is really nice to be able to do while performing some chores. Sometimes I read and take notes or do the exercises in written form.

    I have collected many of your courses over the years, some before the app was available. So much great material! I’m still working through the Á Moi Paris series.

    P.S. If you came out with a flash cards enhancement for drilling with each chapter vocabulary, I would love that too.

    I am really enjoying the à Moi Paris Audiobook series that you have sent to me. I like the format and the options for slow comprehension and then normal speed.
    I am trying ,as you suggested, to read and listen to the French and to read the English as little as possible.
    Your emphasis on the modern spoken French is particularly helpful as I often miss words that are ‘run’ together and become unrecognisable.

    I also like the easy use of the program as I can come back to the lesson where I left it.
    Time as always is my enemy as I am still working !!

    PS perhaps in the future I could organise a direct conversation with you on line as I am still very shy about conversing in French as I have little opportunity ?

    French Today is such an enjoyable way to (re)learn French!
    I spent years studying French in school, and acquired a love of the language, but no fluency. After decades of disuse, I decided to try again to learn to actually SPEAK French. Taking Camille’s advice, I started with Level 1. I’ve been following her excellent suggestions on how to best use the audiobooks. The clarity of the presentation has allowed me to very quickly remember what I had previously known. And best of all, within a very short time, my aural comprehension has vastly improved, and my spoken French is improving daily.
    The additional features, such as emailed tips. blogs and stories, add variety and interest to the experience.
    Thank you again to Camille and her family for such an excellent product!

    The audio books that I have purchased at French Today are superb. They are so well organized and the audio is incredibly helpful for improving your pronunciation and listening comprehension. I am so grateful for finding these materials. And, they fun. I knew they would be good because the French Today website free material has been incredibly helpful to me. Most impressive, is how well the technology of the audiobook and app are. I use them on all my devices: my ipad, my iphone and my desktop.

    Camille and Olivier, you have the best approach to teaching how to speak spoken French and not how to pronounce each and every word, it is not the same. Your causal approach is very structured and a top-down presentation with lots of exercises and being a 30+ year retired business college instructor – I appreciate you concern for each student.

    If you try to converse in any language using word phonetic pronunciation people would have a difficult time understanding what you are saying. It’s like talking with first grader and not like with an adult.

    My approach was to be totally immersed in everything not only the entire French language, but also about France and that is how I started learning French which is exactly everything you cover in your L1 & L2. I have saved every email since 12/12/2020.

    I have over 300+ hours of French related saved topics that have been researched which focuses not only on the spoken language but includes lessons, newspapers, magazines, movies on youtube (learning how to speak French), songs, poems, and it is growing.

    I have many additional French resources which includes 8 different teaching sources, the country, life style, food, housing, tracking the rebuilding of Notre-Dame de Paris, moving, becoming an expat, buying a house, French wineries, and everything else about France and it is growing.

    As I said before, Camille your approach is superb and very worthy of 5 stars!!!!!

    Camille and Olivier thank you so much for all of your work and effort!!!!

    Thanks to French Today, I think I can actually navigate my way around in French-speaking countries. I’m 73 years old and absorbing another language isn’t easy, but with the audiobooks and drills it’s absolutely fun. I highly recommend Camille’s teaching method.
