    I am thoroughly enjoying using A Moi Paris to learn French – speaking, hearing, reading. There is so much to learn from each chapter, the accompanying questions and answers, and the study guide. The audio lessons are excellently constructed and paced. I also so enjoy receiving the regular French Today emails with their useful tips and interesting cultural stories. It all feels very welcoming, friendly and inclusive and you sense that Camille really wants you to do well.

    I have purchased the two first audio books of A moi Paris and they are just wonderful. I did learn French in the past but this is something totally different. I learn on my way to work (45 min each direction every working day) in the car. The explanations of grammar and pronunciation are fantastic and comprehensive. I will surely buy the next two audio books once I finish these ones.
    Thank you so much!

    Watch and repeat is the key to the way that I learn. So, for me, it makes good sense to listen and repeat whilst learning a languages. The spoken word is a mile away from the written word, especially in French, and there are so many words for the same meaning. This is why the audio is so helpful here, I can listen and repeat it over and over again, that’s how I learn. Plus plenty of explanations and examples for the understanding.
    Thank you very much, I love it!
    Cheers Ed

    I’m loving this audio book. I was a little hesitant to purchase initially because I just couldn’t find a decent teacher to teach me French how I wanted. And I thought what good will this book do? It took me a whole year to find the strength to buy it. And I’m glad I did. It’s very helpful to my French learning and I wa already at an intermediate level, but thought no harm in starting from the beginning to make sure all the foundation and understanding of the basics were there. I’ve already learnt so much that I really never understood fully before and I think it’s one of the better products in language learning out there.

    I am only on lesson 3 of the beginner Level French Today, but I already feel I have learned so much. I am a 62 year old Grand-mere, and a motivated student! I have been using Duolingo and Rosetta Stone. However, I was quite frustrated that after regularly doing my lessons for almost a year now, I was still unable to communicate with French speakers. I found myself dong just what Camille says happens, freezing up and trying to translate the simplest phrases from English to French. By then then those golden opportunities were lost.
    After completing just the first two lessons of French Today, and with much practice, I had an occasion to use the simple interchanges I had prepared. Success! I was able to greet someone, respond to his 1st question (“how are you?), and ask how his wife was! Genial! It was wonderful!
    I continue to use the other two lesson plans, however, I feel I would be so much further along if I had STARTED with FRENCH TODAY a year ago instead of just a few weeks ago. It has filled in the gaps left by both Duolingo and Rosetta Stone, and I am anxious to put into use what I am learning be able to communicate with the many French speaking immigrants in our area, learning about different cultures, and forming new friendships. Camille, Merci beaucoup!

    I love the way you and these audio books teach. It has helped a lot along with vocabulary practice that I do from another app. My one thing I would love for improvement is if there was a way to order them in a way so that when I download them on iOS (iPhone/iPad) they could be listened to in order. I am constantly losing the place of what lesson I was on previously. One suggestion to fix this is to title them with a number in front:

    01. Introduction
    02. Chapter 1 Study Guide
    03. Chapter 1 Slow
    04. Chapter 1 Normal
    05. Chapter 2 Study Guide
    Etc etc

    Thanks,
    ~Matty

      Thank you for your feedback. When you receive your audiobook, all the different files are organised in 4 distinct folders and they are named in sequence so that they can be played in sequence in iTunes and/or iOS per category (Study guide, Normal speed, slow recording and Street)

      We understand what you mean but the problem with your suggestion is that different people use the audiobook in different ways: your suggestion has the study guide first, then slow recording then normal (and no street version) whereas we suggest you listen to the normal recording first, then go on to the study guide. Based on their starting level, some people might be more comfortable starting with the slow version, some others might be interested in listening to the street version before the study guide, some might listen to the street version after they have completed a section… They are so many different possibilities (and study styles) that we can not pick a specific sequence.

      We believe the current ordering is the most flexible and logical for all different types of learners.

    After several attempts at another online language course, as well as early stages with more formalised training – Alliance etc – I am greatly motivated now that I have started using the French Today audiobooks. They are really well put together and gently move you upward. I am combining French Pronunciation as well as verb fundamentals and Conversation, and all slot together very well. Highly recommended.

    I recently bought this product from French today, so far I found it to be very helpful with my french language learning process, it is very comprehensive and has a very well thought of design to teach french, the tips that you get as you progress are so practical and helpful, it is always exciting and not boring at all so you feel you are so eager to go back and learn more, French is the second language that I am trying to learn and I am making progress slowly with the help of this product from French Today, I am very sure that I will buy all the other levels once I master the material that I have, I think it is absolutely worth buying if you are keen to learn French.

    I’ve been studying French for nearly 30 years now, within which time I have lived, worked and studied in France for a year and a bit, and I can safely say that French Today’s material is of the highest quality and practicality that I have seen. Keep up the good work!

    Your products are amazing. I could have started at the Level 4 but there is much to learn even at the beginning level and I don’t want to miss anything! My textbook level is much higher than my auditory comprehension level. This is just what you both understand and I am glad to be your student.
    I purchased the verb drills and other products too which are also very good and build one’s confidence.
    I was able to download all the products but then I had a “computer expert” help me put the audio on my mp3. Well, the PDFS got lost somehow and Oliver has been very helpful to get my files back in order. Thanks so much!
