    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!

    The lessons are good for the exposure to contemporary French and I appreciate the Street French speed. The lessons are perhaps a little too female-centric but I can live with that. One area that could use improvement are some parts of the lessons and study guides where the translations are generalized too much. For instance, the sentence ‘Les vacances durent une semaine’ is translated as ‘The vacation is a week long’, whereas I would prefer it said ‘The vacation lasts for a week’ or in other words is tied more closely to the real meaning giving more weight to the verb ‘durent’.
    All in all though, an excellent purchase.

    After searching for the right course online to learn French, I found French Today. I liked the fact that Camille said she teaches the French that the people speak , and not just textbook French, so to speak. I bought the first beginner’s course, and really love it. I am only on Chapter 3, but I enjoy the course so much. Today, I even ordered another course, the French Greetings course.
    Even though I have not finished my first course, I still highly recommend French Today!!!

    I was disappointed as I wasn’t expecting a file to be download to my computer – the advertising suggests books and CD’s. It’s not convenient for me to sit at my computer and listen to this audio – not how I learn. I will never use it nor will I purchase anything from this site. Gave it 3 star as I’m sure the content is fine but not the product/packaging

    [Response from French Today: Even though customer did not contact us about it, full refund was given according to our 100% 120 days money-back guarantee. Regarding the “advertising suggests books & CD’s” nowhere on our site does it say that and at every step of the order process we remind the customer that nothing will be shipped. We don’t even ask for a shipping address at checkout!]
