    These audio books are fantastic. I have put them on to an SD card and plugged them into my car audio system. The ability to listen regularly to the same words and pronunciation is really helpful.

    The other thing that I find useful is the speed, not too fast not too slow.

    I have no hesitation in recommending these books, long may they continue producing them and hopefully many more.

    I have tried many products related to learning French and after two years of study there is one piece of advice that I feel confident in giving. And that advice is to listen to as much spoken french as you can starting as early as you can. It’s even better if you have a transcript in french to help you pick up vocabulary you may miss as you listen. A Moi Paris is a great tool because it provides an interesting story that starts out with slow easy french and in each episode the level of speech and vocabulary grows. There are transcripts in french (and english) that you can read as you listen and that you can also use to practice speaking. I am very happy with this product and believe that it can really help others to quickly develop their comprehension and speaking skills.

    Like many mid aged people my French conversation was received with raised eyebrows and disdain by french friends…”NO BODY speaks like that ! ” . Now that my own children are learning French we have all gone back to the start using Camille’s audio learning system and we are all making great progress ! Camille ‘ s method of audio based learning supported by written transcripts and extensive study guides is intensive and extremely rewarding to use. She insists training to a fast automatic response with a good accent and it works !

    The chapters of the A Moi Paris audio novels 1-4 are intense learning opportunities that manage and progress you deterrminedly through the process of learning the french language. You always feel stretched yet you never feel lost. If you know how to conjugate verbs in the plus-que-parfait yet your head doesn’t t shout [yona!] when you read ” il y en a ” then you are probably in no mans land as far as using the French language. I highly recommend that you start back at the start with Camille’s learning system. You will be amazed at the fluency that you will achieve and at how quickly you can achieve it. Bridget R

    For beginners or high-school-French survivors who want to get to first base in French, À Moi Paris Level 2 is as good of a resource as can be found, and it’s affordable, making it the best deal available by far.

    It comprises a novel of short 17 chapters recorded in clear, slow French audio, and a 200 page pdf with each chapter’s full text in both French and English. The first chapter is a dialog between people who’ve just met on a train; this provides a way to start very simply. Each subsequent chapter builds on its previous, and includes a chapter guide (in both audio and pdf) that expands and explains the new stuff in each chapter e.g. a new verb or a verb used with a different meaning. The pdf has a few pages of Q&A in both languages for each chapter. Both audio quality and the document layout and editing are impeccable.

    The Approach -– The material covers considerable grammatical territory (perhaps on par with a year of high-school French?), but with almost no explicit discussion of grammar. For example, you’ll hear and pick up how to use determiners, possessive pronouns, etc., without naming them as such – just like you did with your first language as a child. It’s mostly in present tense but never becomes awkward because of it. By the last chapter, there are more complicated sentences with object pronouns, some additional tenses, etc. Not worrying about such things as present participles and disjunctive pronouns saves time that can be used for learning to use them by habit rather than by rules.

    The Process -– One thing that is quite different about this material is the variety of ways to work with it; this is unlike, for example, a course that you can only use on a PC. You can cycle between listening with an iPod (e.g while driving), reading paper (in a waiting room), immersive study at your PC, and recording and playing back the Q&A on smart phone. The Q&A would support a study group. You’ll choose the mix of media depending on your preferences and availability of time.

    What’s Next — Another factor is that there are follow-on materials available in the same series, so that you can continue when you’re ready. Unlike high-school French I for which there is a French II designed to pickup where the first left off, many courses for independent-learners don’t have a next step, forcing you to choose between and expensive restart or bewildering intermediate course not designed to follow the one you started.

    I don’t know why high schools and colleges keep to language textbooks with 400 pages of grammar rules rather than a method closer to À Moi Paris Level 2, but it seems me that this is a better way to get going.

    It’s a wonderful product not only for beginners but also for those who would like to refresh their French. Following the stories is very entertaining. You forget that you’re learning a new language and without realizing it, you learn new vocabulary, along with grammar, without any effort, as it all becomes automatic. That’s how a new language should be learned: while having fun!
    I highly recommend all of French Today’s products as I’m happy—and proud— to say that I am now able understand everything I read and HEAR ( thanks to Camille’s clear and melodic voice) , I’m able to write the grammar correctly (thanks to the PDF files of the text for all the dialogues in the stories! ) , and I’m even able carry a conversation with the proper pronunciation ( I still need to polish my accent a little) only 1 year after studying with “A Moi a Paris, First Encounter (which French Today let’s you download for FREE!!!), “A Moi a Paris Level 1” and “A Moi a Paris Level 2”.

    Thank you, Camille and Olivier!

    I have already studied french basic grammar, but when it comes to listening or to speaking french, I am almost beginner. I consulted Camille which one I should have started, and she recommended this beginners one. I am glad that I have started from this one, since it could be good review, and still I could learn something new. The big positive part is for listening practice. Although I still have difficulties to listen and speak french, some French around me told that my french seemed been improved! I will continue to study Camille’s materials. Thank you Camille and Olivier!

    I have found the A Moi series an important part of my french learning. To be able to hear the dialogue on my phone every time I’m in my car has helped me a lot even if it’s only 5 mins. It helps me make connections, it has also helped with my confidence when speaking with the correct pronunciation.

    Having visited France in the past, my French was diabolical to say the least and I completely lacked the confidence to try and dreaded anyone approaching to engage in conversation.
    Having studied and practised using three of Camille’s product’s I certainly feel more confident to start conversations on my upcoming visit to Bordeaux and the surrounding area.
    My listening skills are improving daily, need to work on the accent !! and my reading of French has greatly improved over the past few months.

    Congratulations Camille and Olivier on producing such a fabulous Library of learning.

    A really excellent purchase that’s certainly worth its five-star rating. All of the learning material that I’ve seen from ‘French Today’ is quite outstanding and gives the student of French a superb resource base for making fast progress in the language.

    Allo!

    I am writing this testimonial from as far as Indonesie. I have none experience in French while I can consider myself good in English. Thus I have been looking to add literacy in another language. Having worked in French company for almost 3 years, sadly my French reached only to “Bon Weekend!”. Fortunately somehow I came across your website and I cannot tell you how much I love your products (I bought a bundle of three products for beginners offered at a great deal. How lucky I was!).

    I have enjoyed putting all three products I bought in “Repeat” mode in my mobile phone so wherever I am, I could access the audio programs to increase my French level. Kudos to the three kinds of speed, a great feature which I found only on your website. I found typos of English in the PDF but overall, excellent products. Thank God I subscribe to your newsletter. Great article and great updates on discount ;)

    Merci beaucoup!

    I would like to tell you how much I am enjoying studying French with your audio book novels. I have worked through First Encounter and am now starting into The Beginnings.

    While still being far from bilingual, I have noticed a big improvement in my ability to read and understand the stories. My comprehension of real French people speaking is growing in leaps and bounds!!!

    I only wish I had more time every day to devote to my lessons!
