    The audiobook series are great for spoken French. I listen to the dialog at different speeds and repeat as much as I can remember out loud. I often play them while I drive on errands or walk. I tried watching French TV shows or movies but the dialog is too fast and too diverse for a beginner. The À Moi Paris beginner stories are interesting and perfect for a beginner. I’m just starting the intermediate series and look forward to those stories.

    I am a seasoned business man, and I very much look for professionalism in service providers. French Today have an approach and methodology that puts them well above competitive language learning offerings, and appear to be at the top of a very competitive field in terms of professionalism and expertise.
    I am making rapid progress in learning French the Camille/Olivier way! I would give them 6 stars if I could!

    Great series, and I loved the pace of the story with Camille. Not too fast and not too slow, a great speed for listening as a beginner. I would have liked a longer pause between the exercise sentences so I could verbally speak the answers but that was a minor flaw in my eyes. I can’t wait to delve into part 2 now!

    I purchased the book after spending sometime viewing their sample work online. I am very impressed with the support I got from the French Today team. I had quite a few questions before organising my payment, every time my queries were answered promptly and patiently. So I would say their customer service is really first class!

    Although I haven’t really started using the book yet, I like and enjoy all the language and culture materials through their regular emails and I look forward to starting my learning journey with the book soon!

    This is the best course that exists. It is so thorough and well planned. I am supposed to be at level B1 but I realised that the exam that I had taken was far too easy : there is so much that I don’t know.
    I have bought all the À Moi Paris audio books and I wish that I had discovered them earlier.
    I have also purchased all the Verb Drills which are truly excellent.

    The fact that Camille has recorded herself speaking in three different speeds is incredibly helpful. As she notes, spoken French sounds very different than the French I learned in high school 35 years ago! I finally feel hopeful that I’ll become proficient one day in the near future. Great product!

    I am preparing to interact with French speakers on a professional level at my workplace. My B.A. is in French, but I haven’t used the language in over 20 years. I found that I could still read French, and that I could stil remember a lot of grammar points, but understanding spoken language and speaking the language was much more of a challenge.

    I worked with a language learning app for a while, but it did not explain the more advanced points of grammar, or the subtle nuances of vocabulary, very thoroughly, and in some cases, not at all.

    While Googling when to use “l’on”, versus “on”, I came across Camille’s very thorough explanation of the pronoun “on” and when and why the “l'” is inserted. I was very impressed and downloaded the sample audiobook that covers a chapter from each of the À Moi Paris series.

    I started listening from the beginning, and I was hooked! There were thorough explanations of grammar and vocabulary usage for both written and spoken French, and even idiomatic phrases were indicated in the story!

    I bought the whole À Moi Paris series right away, and ended up purchasing several other French Today audiobooks as well!

    If you are like me and have a background in French, but you want to work on your speaking and listening skills, as well as your precision in French grammar and vocabulary, start from the beginning. I have found it much less intimidating to get used to street French starting with concepts and vocabulary I already understand. But on top of that, I found lots of valuable insights into French grammar and vocabulary, even at the beginner level.

    I only wish I had found French Today earlier! Camille and Olivier offer a fantastic product, and they are extremely helpful if you run into any difficulty.

    Thank you, Camille and Olivier, for all you do!

    Best learning aids I have found. Much of it is free! As an older learner its good to know Camille’s french is up to date, mine is from the mid 1990s.

    After trying to learn to French the typical way (learning spoken and written at the same time), the thought came to me that two-year old children can speak the language and don’t have to learn how to spell anything or what imparfait, plus-que-parfait or any other tense means until they’re in school.

    I currently have to read what is being communicated because if it is spoken, I am lost.

    Learning was harder than it needed to be, so I searched for another way and found French Today. Camille’s words spoke exactly to what I knew — separating conversation from written was the best approach to learning.

    I’m currently working my way through A Moi Paris beginner levels 1 & 2 and also purchased the intermediate levels and verb conjugation. I enjoy the learning process, am retaining more, and love following along with a story. I play the chapters at all three speeds and speak along with Camille’s exercises.

    Learning to communicate verbally is my priority and Camille has provided exceptional tools and training to make it possible.

    Really worthwhile and well crafted series!
    I am enjoying the story and appreciating the different speeds of audio as well as the accompanying exercises.
    Well done on your fantastic creation, Camille.
