    I have a couple of the products from French today. It’s really good quality and I hope there will also be a video product, like Italianissimo (BBC) which became a school standard, and something with both audio, video and excercises for iOS.

    I wanted to learn french beyond what I experienced in Elementary school, and just so you know, I wasn’t so fond of school, actually I couldn’t wait for it to be done. Now, here I am, many years later, taking french once again, except this time I’m focused on learning. I spent some time reading reviews and liked what I read about French Today, and so far I’m not disappointed one bit. I like how it starts off with beginners in mind, and for me I needed a starting point like this. I was impressed by the written material and how it’s easy to follow, and the corresponding audio files. What a joy to be able to replay the audio at my leisure. Well, I could babble on, but writing is not my specialty, so I’ll just say thanks for an excellent product.

    I am beginning to accumulate a good collection of programs in the audio pronunciation, stories, verbs , etc…etc… that Frenchtoday has to offer.
    They are very educational, it has wonderful unique approach to immersion in the language. Not sure why it took me so long to find them. Yes, pronunciation is difficult, but with their methods, and encouragement and constant flow of free information on specific areas of the language, with clear concise explanations of how to use it, in the everyday conversations…What else can I ask for? They are friendly, respond to inquiries quickly…constantly reinforcing the practice… practice to learn to speak it. Have made progress, Love the lessons, specially the different speeds of the content.
    I personally would recommend Frenchtoday to anyone that wants to learn the French. I am having fun learning to speak French, specially now that I have found the right program.
    Thank you, Camille and Staff. Sincerely, Jorge

    After four semesters of college French in the U.S., I was disheartened. But after just a month of frenchtoday, I’m reenergized. This is a GREAT way to learn to speak French!

    Your lessons are fantastic! I give it the highest rating.

    I’ve studied French on and off (with long stretches off) for years since I was in 7th grade. I retired a few years ago and decided to try to get more proficient, now that I have lots of free time. I came back to studying French using Rosetta Stone, which was excellent in getting me to speak French better. After finally finishing it’s five levels, I found I still had gaps in my grasp of the language, especially when it came to understanding spoken street French. It was nearly impossible to decipher the dialog in French films or overheard in the streets of New York–so fast and so much slang and idiomatic expressions.

    French Today has been very helpful with getting accustomed to the way French is actually spoken–the way words are contracted and the use of conversational phrases. I’ve not come across any other language course with this approach. Also, the study guides are the best I’ve come across in explaining some of the finer grammatical points. I’ve always wondered why some things were said one way rather than another, and your guides offers an understanding; that’s so much better than simply trying to memorize rules.

    I found Camille’s “A moi Paris” series the very best means available to actually learn to SPEAK French. I have tried the free courses that you can find online and the subscription courses that you may pay quite a lot of money for: but none come close to “A moi Paris”. If you read the rest of this review I can tell you why and save you a lot of time searching for the best course rather then learning.

    There is a BIG difference between “knowing” a language and being able to speak it. And Camille first starts with the talking and speaking and then teases the grammar from the script. In other word she has successfully put the cart before the horse: putting the emphasis on speaking first, and grammar after.

    I can best tell you why this course is so successful using an analogy.

    I play classical piano. I have spent years learning music theory, studied the scales, looking at the sheet music of score I want to play. But although this helps me to UNDERSTAND the music I want to play, it does not help me to actually play the piece. What does help me is to ultimately play the music is the time I actually spend practising the piece. The memory of the piece of music has to be transferred to my fingers through repeating and repeating the piece.

    This is basically Camille’s approach. You learn a language by speaking. Yes, understanding grammar is very important. But let us not forget that all children learn to speak their native language long before they know any grammar; and there are adults who speak their language very well without knowing any grammar at all.

    Do not waste time searching for the best course. I have found it for you.

    I have been a beginning French learner for years. I always work on my basic skills for a few months before a trip, and I have used many different books, tapes (yes, that far back), CDs, etc..
    This is by far the best program I have used. It is especially good for pronunciation.
    I’m not sure that it is truly for the total beginner, tho.
    I also find that the integration of grammar with the lessons is excellent.
    I may even finish this program before my next trip in June.
    Thanks to French Today.

      Thank you for your glowing review Barry. You mention “I’m not sure that it is truly for the total beginner, tho.” but if you read other reviews on this page, you will see that many true beginners have really enjoyed this audiobook. “Level 1” was absolutely created for the true beginner in mind.

    It’s simple–this method works. I keep listening to the chapters over and over again going from slow to street French until I am no longer translating in my head.

    And the grammar workbook is as friendly as a grammar workbook is going to be

    Hi, We plan on living in France and had been looking for a course in French, we tried your free sample and were very impressed so we bought level 1. We have both found the structure excelent, John, my husband had a smattering of french knowledge, I had none. John who is much better at languages than me, has used many different books, CD’s and Internet courses and say that this is the best he has used. John is has now started on level 2. I on the other hand am still on level 1 but I find your explanations very clear and helpful and using the audio along with the written French is helping my pronunciation very much.

    This course goes beyond anything I’ve looked at. Camille and Olivier have crafted an amazing product which is presented so that the student hears French spoken at three tempos, from slow through to what is actually heard on the streets. It is clear,informative,and fun. In addition, the student is sent weekly interesting tips with videos of different facets of life in France. The customer service is exemplary also.

    This program is amazing. After studying in class and privately for 20 or so years [including university, Alliance classes and Rosetta Stone], and failing to progress with a natural flow, the French Today product is turning around my language development. Now, I can’t wait to spend time studying because I see, feel, and speak the results immediately. French Today addresses language learning the way a child would learn language….by listening first, and listening a lot before the printed word is presented.

    I purchased Level One because I had a lot of holes in my knowledge and to my delight, it was a good decision. I spend a lot of time in France and know more about the country and customs than my French born friends, yet I’m learning new things which I’m sharing with these French folks. The Study Guide is exceptional in its presentation. The audio is technically masterful in presenting the well organized material. In short, this is pure genius.

    Merci! Merci! Merci! – Finally a program that is perfect for my way of learning. I love your program and the method of teaching. Your insights and the points you make about language structure, as well as all the bits of information about culture and language usage are wonderful. I have the second series as well and verb drills 1,2,3. This is a lot of material to cover, but I find it fascinating. Please keep up the great work you are doing. – Marion Taijala
