    I have been living in Toulouse, France since September 2018. In June 2019, after studying for 6 months full-time at a highly regarded French Language School in Toulouse, I passed the DELF B2 French language proficiency exam. But I still struggled with my French pronunciation and whilst I could do all the basic tourist interactions: restaurants, shops, transport, hotels, camping, directions… easily I found French people struggled to understand me and I was still struggling to understand them. I needed help.

    I came across Camille’s website and bought A Moi Paris Level 5, whilst I thought this level was perhaps too easy for me, having passed the exam, my confidence needed a big boost and I thought it might be good to cover old ground. Having used Level 5 and about to start Level 6 I highly recommend A Moi Paris audiobooks.

    Camille’s explanation of the difference between the daily spoken use of Futur Proche versus Futur Simple is the best explanation I’ve come across and this one little thing immediately helped me understand a mistake I was making when talking to French people (this had not been explained to me in my exam preparation courses). But the books include much more than a simple audio guide with exercises, for example direct hyperlinks to French songs on Youtube, songs with their lyrics in French which specifically cover either a point of grammar or pronunciation which English speakers often find difficult. I use the books at the Street Level speed but when I miss ‘une liaison ou l’élison’ I slow the speed down to the Slower Level and repeat it just to make sure I have mastered the sound and the linking between the words.

    After 3 weeks of using A Moi Paris my French friends tell me that my pronunciation has improved, they now understand 90% of what I’m saying and I speak so much more confidently now. I wish I had known about A Moi Paris before I spent thousands of euros on full-time lessons at a highly regarded french language school, I could have saved myself a lot of money and been a more confident speaker. French Language Schools intensive 4 week courses in Toulouse range in price from €560- €880.

    Starting with A Moi Paris Level 3 and moving up to Level 5 has really helped my comprehension of spoken French. I have noticed that I am now able to listen to the normal spoken French and don’t need to listen to the slower version. Camille speaks beautifully and I do my best to imitate her lovely accent (not always so successfully).

    Also the explanations of particular points of grammar are very clear and easy to understand. Any language has its own peculiarities and understanding them helps so much with getting to grips with how real people speak.

    When I compare this method with the textbook that I’m using in a formal class situation it really jumps out at me how stilted the text book is. Congratulations to Camille and Olivier.

    I’ve been using French Today since Level 1 and am now a third of the way through Level 6. I’ve stuck with French Today because it’s the best learning tools I’ve come across for learning conversational French, both listening and speaking. Level 6 is really great to grasp a lot of phrases, idiomatic and otherwise.

    It also continues to introduce synonymous way in which to say things, and gets you accustomed to the proper usage of various tenses, especially the ‘tricky’ imparfait. Among the different ways you can set up the course, I really like using the mobile app; it’s very easy to use and set up and has great flexibility to navigate through the lessons. On top of all that, the lessons are fun to listen to. In Chapter 5, there’s a bit of dialog about a teacher that is laugh-out-loud funny. I was howling. The performance is Oscar worthy.

    This is a wonderful learning tool. I started with Une Semaine à Paimpol and really enjoyed the teaching method and subsequently downloaded this book for more advances grammar. The story line is interesting and easy to follow. Usually I listen while I am in the car and despite listening to it several times, (with time gaps in between!) the story is still interesting, but more importantly the vocabulary and grammar points sink in. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is working at improving their french.

    I had originally planned to start with 7 and 8, as I am fairly competent conversationally, but figured I could use a refresher for grammar, so I purchased 5 and 6. Wow! It is so helpful! So now I think I’m actually going to end up buying 3 and 4 as well. The explanations are so clear and thorough, while also providing details concisely. The storyline is fun and engaging, and it is clear how much effort has gone into connecting the content (vocabulary, tenses, grammatical syntax) with the lessons. I have done many different products for learning language over the years, and in my opinion, this is an extremely high quality, useful language learning program.

    A wonderful product and highly recommended!

    Love this audio book series! I thought I was pretty strong on French grammar (one of those students who memorized every rule from the textbooks and can conjugate almost every tense), but even I learned new things. What really is revolutionary about these books is Camille’s explanations of French conversation: WHEN to use these verb tenses or expressions, not just how to form them. I’ve been told before by native French speakers that “What you say is grammatically correct but the French don’t ever say it that way”. So reading and hearing these verb tenses used within conversational context is so useful for building up my experience with the language so I can better “feel” what verb tense should be used.
    For “A moi” Level 5, I particularly enjoyed Chapters 5 and 13-15. All the stories are interesting and I always learn new vocabulary and expressions, but I’ve re-read and recited Chapter 13 multiple times because I enjoy it so much, and talking about hairstyles in all the different verb tenses is surprising tricky to do!

    The latest app is easy to use and much faster. I downloaded and unzipped it in about 5 minutes. I enjoy the story because my grand-daughters are the same age as the characters and have similar conversations in English. It was very easy to change from ‘slow’ to ‘street’ French. I had a small glitch with the app. Olivier came to the rescue and advised me to delete it and re-install it. As I am ‘ancien’ and not tech savvy his advice was very welcome and everything now works perfectly. I adore Paimpol to which I used to sail.
    For several years, I have stayed with Suzanne and Peter at Jugon les lacs, who are excellent hosts of French today though Suzanne works you very hard.

    Having already bought and studied AMP Levels 3&4, I soon brought this as a bundle with AMP Level 5 (and most of Camille’s other audio books). I’ve found them fantastic – Camille explains grammar points really well, the study guides are brilliant, and the stories are fun and engaging and pack in a lot of vocabulary and grammar almost without you noticing. These are the best audio books for adults learning French that I’ve come across (in several years of trying different ones out) and I’d recommend extremely highly!!

    I can’t say enough good about Camille’s programme. Over the years I used her audiobooks (recently purchased Level7), incl. verb fundamentals and drills, working with adjectives, etc., to teach myself French. And teach myself I did, so much so that I have been able to help my kids with their school work (especially pronunciation!). The audiobooks are fun. I had the first two level study guides printed and spiral-bound, so I could write notes and highlight things whilst listening and reading. My son was using Level 5-6-7 as a junior/senior in high school. After all these years of learning with her, Camille’s voice feels “like family” (LOL). Now I need to find a similar programme for teaching myself Italian, then I’ll be content for a while. Oh, and the app just makes usage super easy. Again, I love Camille’s way of teaching. Fun way of learning real, usable French. And her website is a cornucopia of all things one would want to know about the French, both the language and the people/customs/way of life. I can easily spend hours discovering. (It’s funny how my brain works: I feel connected to her because when she lived in Boston, we were practically neighbours. Haha, not really, just a neighbouring state. But still…)

    French Today is a unique way to learn French. I am now up level 5 on A Mois Paris. The continuing story of the three girls keeps you interested. What I like are the Study Guides after every chapter that are relevant to the chapter you are reading and also at the right level for you. Give the sweet blogs from daughter Leyla a try, which have an authentic look with small corrections from ‘mom’, A bonus of French Today is the constant improving and updating the site and everything on the site always works, with IT it is not always the case with many sites. Finally the site has a great ‘family feel’, which of course is exactly how it is run. Geoff

    I would like to thank you for the great learning tools you offer. I have purchased Six of your French Audio Books and am looking forward to your eight installment. I find the audio books easy listening and have them on in the car whenever I go anywhere. They have taught me a lot. I have tried most of the other providers such as Rosetta Stone, Michel Thomas, Pimsleur etc, and can say from experience, although they can be useful in wrote learning they are outdated and do not teach the way french is spoken today. Can I also say how useful your newsletters are, they are very informative giving insight into the little nuances of the french language. Keep up the great work. Kind Regards – Dean

    First I found the audio booklets of poems that Camille did years ago, which I loved. In fact because I was intrigued by the difference between the French and the English translation, I found myself studying French poetry in a way I never had the patience for English poetry. Then I decided after two years of Duolingo, it was time to finally really learn the irregular verbs. The verb drills were so much more useful than any text because hearing the way the verbs are spoken is crucial to using them properly. Then I went on to A Moi Paris book 5. and it too is a really effective learning tool. I use the “street french” speed, although I stop and start a lot, just to get the feel for the way the language is really spoken. Thank you French Today for doing such a good job!

    There are not enough *starts* to indicate the greatness of this resource!

    I have been following Camille’s audiobook series from the beginning, recently adding levels 5 and 6 to my ‘bookshelf’, and I am really enjoying the progression. Compared to some of the lower levels, which ‘teach’ specific grammar structures (e.g. verb tenses, agreements, use of various pronouns, direct/indirect objects, etc), level 6 has a greater emphasis on vocabulary and expressions, while making use of the grammatical features that should already be familiar. What I particularly like about this series – in addition to the engaging story and characters – is that I can return to each chapter on many different levels. For example, I often listen to a chapter or two while walking the dog, using it largely as comprehension (in which case I don’t get too concerned if I don’t catch every nuance, so long as I can keep up with the gist of the story). Then I try to return to the topic in a more rigorous and studious manner later. 

    I use these audiobooks, the French Today website, and blog to supplement French classes that I have been attending for the past 18 months or so. On numerous occasions, if I am unsure about a particular language construction, I’ve found the answer is addressed in this content with a simple and practical explanation. I can’t recommend this series highly enough.

    I have subscribed to the entire audio series through number six, and the two audio books, “ A week in Paimpol” and, “A week in Paris”. My learning level is intermediate. I am thoroughly enjoying the entire audio book series. The stories are interesting enough to not feel bored. The lessons by Camille are succinct and relevant while covering a great deal of material. I recommend this series for all learners of all levels. A word about the integrity of the French Today author and team. They have been nothing but sincere, responsive and courteous in all my dealings. A small rebate was returned to me for my audiobook series, after they announced a flash sale of the products I had just purchased. They stand by their money back guarantee. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase of all of their products.

    I love FrenchToday’s blog and the audiobooks! Camille really understands the questions English learners have and is able to teach a lot of new phrases and vocabulary within the right context by using stories. It is extremely helpful to have both the slow and street French recordings to listen to, as well as all the transcriptions. I have learned so much and I feel my French is becoming more natural as I hear the dialogue within her stories (especially since I lack a community of French people to learn from). Camille has a beautiful diction in the recordings as well and is a pleasure to listen to!

    The convenience of being able to listen anywhere and anytime you want, with FrenchToday’s audio books, is perfect – one can start where they left off. With my business I travel alot – so I find FrenchToday’s audiobooks extremely useful, when on a long plane flight, for example. It is marvellous having access to the text version of what one is listening to simultaneously, since, as we all know, written and spoken French are very different! Camille is very clear to listen to with her native-speaking, which helps one’s listening skills, and attention. Language everywhere is constantly changing; and FrenchToday keeps you up to date with how French is currently being spoken. Plus the attention to detail used with grammar etc., in each chapter, is extremely useful too. These audiobooks have allowed me to talk confidently with a number of my French friends, giving me the knowledge that I am pronouncing the text, in the right way!

    I love the sense of rhythm in the language and trying to imitate the patterns while learning to express the meaning gives hope that I do not have to memorize phrasing, I just have to feel the gliding and sliding, the music of French expression in context that is content and emotion. Sorry for the intricate explanation but j’adore la langue francaise.

    The A Moi Paris series is excellent. I have used it alongside other resources to develop and improve my French. The app is easy to use and the material high quality. Each book in the series represents a progression from the last and no. 6 has some challenging vocab and grammar but remains accessible. The one limitation is that it is all in one voice. Overall highly recommended.

    I’m in the classic situation of having taken French in school a long time ago, read it well, have a good knowledge of the grammar — but can’t speak (and am terrified). These audiobooks are the best tool I’ve found for finally making progress in the spoken language. The Secrets of French Pronunciation master class is great too.

    Just another review I would like to add. I just moved to Bordeaux from the US 6 weeks ago. I had a basic French language background, and had also purchased A Moi Paris 5 and all the Verb Drills. I started an intensive French Language class at a school which I am sure you are familiar with, and it was awful. I actually came home and studied French Today, to get the understanding of the lessons for the next day. One day I stayed home from school and studied French Today all day to prepare for the exam the next day.
    Your method is so clear, so precise and easy to understand, and it just makes SENSE. I stopped going to the school, lost my money of course, but I thought if I had just spent the time studying French Today, that I spent at that class, I would be so much farther ahead. So, now I spend time every day going over your material, and am so much better off for it. Your explanation of the Imparfait and Passe Compose, and when to use each was perfect. I wanted to tell my teacher to quit confusing everybody and just use the example of Foreground and “selfie” for Passe Compose, and the “back ground” or painting a picture and setting the scene, for the Imparfait.
    Let there be no mistake, I have a ton of French books and tried many different methods, but French Today is by far the most effective and easy to comprehend. Learning a language is difficult, but I just keep telling myself “repetition is the key!”

    I am so grateful!

    It’s hard to pick out one single article to praise as everything Camille and Oliver do are outstanding. And let’s not forget Leyla, another Camille in the making and cute as a button. I live in the US where one rarely hears French. It’s an uphill battle not to lose the language I love so much. Thus, I do my French Verb Drills; I follow Camille on Facebook, Twitter and of course, I read and study with the Audiobook Series. Daily. Even if just for 20 minutes.This year I’m also spending a week with a French teacher in France. Total immersion!

    I highly recommend French Today to anyone wanting to study French. Whether you are a beginner, and I know it’s tough. We Anglophones look for all the helper words that simply don’t exist in French. but once you’ve accepted that fact and get down to conjugating and using the French verbs, you are on your way.

    Bonne chance!

    This my second audiobook purchase from French Today and I’m very satisfied. The new app makes it easy to use. I really like being able to go back 15 seconds at with a tap of the finger. The two story speeds are good. I use the slow speed first time through, then challenge myself with the faster speed.

    I’m thrilled with Series 5 and 6 especially since I can listen at home and in my car with Bluetooth! I love that I can listen over and over again! I learned French growing up in England and from my French pen friend when we exchanged. Now almost 60 years later I’m renewing my goal to become fluent.

    Another great product from Camille and Olivier. I own just about every audiobook they sell, and I love them all. As a French teacher who left the classroom to be home with my own kids (and then a home schooling mother), I am always looking for ways to maintain my French. To my pleasant surprise, the materials from French Today don’t just help me maintain, they really help me get better and better every time I listen. More than any text book, more than Rosetta Stone or any other software I have tried, Camille and Olivier have brought me closer than ever back to the level of fluency I had after living a whole year immersed in the home of a French family. The story of Marie and the gang throughout the years has made me feel like I have a whole new French family to engage with, and I thank Camille and Olivier for their work. When I first started ordering their products, several years ago, I was worried that they would be too simplistic, or too slow. I am thrilled with the “street” French that Camille offers and I find that in terms of vocabulary and expressions, as well as pronunciation, even the beginning levels of A Moi Paris have something to offer me as a continuing learner. So so glad I found these, and I incorporate the material into the tutoring I frequently do. A gem, worth every penny.

    I’m working on Level 6 at the moment and it is perfect for an Intermediate student. The Slower audio is about 75% the pace of the Street audio which is fast enough to test me but not fast enough to confuse me. I like all the extra vocabulary which appears regularly as well. A fine effort! I’m already looking forward to Level 7.

    I have used Camille’s audio-books with great success to enhance my understanding of spoken French in an interesting context. I have always used the “Street” version to help with that.
    With this series, understanding is enhanced by the use of familiar characters and a consistent developing story-line – and of course Camille’s excellent clarity of expression.
    This latest book moves forward some ten years on, and like the others explores life, love, relationships, travel, work (and Paris) in an accessible manner. Thus, the vocabulary and usage of French for daily life by the main characters (Marie and her friends) both helps comprehension and equips the listener/reader with phrases and sentences for their own use.
    I have listened to this and previous books several times while driving to and from work. I find that little phrases or new words become more apparent with repetition (for me this time it was “bosser”!).
    I am very happy to recommend this book (and indeed all of Frenchtoday material) unreservedly.

    As a serious “self-study” student of French for the past five years, I have in my collection no less than a dozen French self-study packages prepared by various authors and publishers of repute. And when asked which package I would recommend to fellow seekers / learners of French, I’d say without reservation—the French Today À MOI PARIS series, now in 6 volumes. The 6th volume offers the same excellent pedagogical materials presented (like the previous volumes) in a most interesting manner—as narratives. Learners like me would find the audio features of the series very valuable in learning not only French, but FRENCH TODAY.

    I definitely look forward to the release of volumes 7 and 8 of À MOI PARIS before long.

    This product is just the thing I have been looking for. I am someone who learns best in context, and it is extremely useful to learn concepts not in an isolated grammar, but within the context of a story.

    Joining grammar with real life conversation helps me to process it more easily, and to develop a reflex for how the language sounds and should be spoken. I’m looking forward to finally nailing french tenses with this advanced series. Thank you!

    First off, I’m not a newbie to French Today, nor am I a newbie to the A Moi Paris series. I have the other installments and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I was thrilled to see this latest installment in the series and bought it without a single hesitation. Upon going through the first chapter I was blown away. This novel is perfect for taking my French to an even higher level. As usual the dialogs have different speeds, one read slowly to prepare the ear and then another one read at everyday French speed so you can really challenge those ears and improve your listening comprehension, which to me is the hardest part to master in a foreign language. Every chapter starts out with a dialog, followed by grammar explanations and then exercises. Upon starting a chapter, I’ll listen to the slower-speed dialog twice and then I’ll do the same with the faster-speed dialog. I then read the dialog to check what I missed and finally work my way through the grammar and exercises. The A Moi Paris series is hands down the most fun, creative and effective way to learn French. I’ve seen Mary grow up and become an adult throughout these audio novels. I’m hooked on this engaging soap-opera-like story. The story alone is what makes me want to go through the book since I’m usually dying to see what will happen next.

    Salut! I’m writing to thank and congratulate you for the really excellent books you’ve produced! I’ve purchased a few of your titles — À Moi Paris, the Une Semaine novels/books, the French Verb Drills series, and the French poems books.

    As an independent learner of French, I’ve actually been through quite a number of good learning programs/packages, including those offered by Routledge, Dorling Kindersley, and Living Language, among others.

    Still, I find yours really first-rate!

    I am English but I live in France. Being able to read a language is one thing but catching the current spoken word is another. Transient meetings, passing neighbours, workmen in the house? One’s ears need educating!

    This series cures the difficulties. I have never seen content like this. So we’ll presented and so useful in any other language course anywhere else.

    À Moi Paris Level 5 is a fantastic novel. I would definitely rate it at 5 stars. Each chapter uses your slogan, “repetition is the key” – since the story follows nicely from the previous À Moi Paris series. The novel very succinctly explains grammar which is used in the various chapters; and allows one to practice such grammar with given exercises. The story is written with everyday useful French; and unlike some old-fashioned texbooks it is very helpful at using tenses and rules with great examples, explanations and attention to detail. It is a real bonus to have Camille’s very clear voice, in the accompanying audio, which offers a speed level also. I am looking forward to À Moi Paris Level 6 – with the “Twist” which has been mentioned in Level 5!? This is a great way to learn to speak and write French; and also a novel one can read at different stages too if, like most people, one is busy with lots of other things in life.

    I have found your products to be the best for upper level French. Other courses I’ve tried are beginner or intermediate beginner., and it was frustrating to not be able to go beyond that level. Keep them coming!

    I have just begun level 5 and so far it has clarified many points which have until now been a little confusing. A case in point being the use of depuis pendant il y a etc. An excellent summary. Why do so many teachers make it so difficult?
    My only very small adverse comment would be; Why does the spoken dialogue and the written dialogue not keep in step? It is a little annoying when you listen, eyes shut of course, but then quickly want to verify something and it is not possible to give a glance down to do that because sound and vision are out of sync. Small point which may or may not be possible to change but the app. is great. Many thanks Ken

    I absolutely love this course!…At age 70, I’ve been learning to speak, write and understand French for about 4 years now. I have employed many ways and techniques in learning, including, Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur, Duolingo,, and taking some semi-private beginning and intermediate classes with my friend who is French, lives most of the year in France, but who vacations in Florida for several months in the winter, (which explains how we met). This course is comparable to the best.
    I’m a retired Reading Specialist , who has worked for many years with children, grades K-8 , with reading difficulties, and realize what a powerful tool audio-books have become in helping children to read more fluently and with comprehension. This applies also to helping those who wish to learn a foreign language. This course provides the opportunity for one to read along with text while listening to it, in short manageable chapters, to have the translation at one’s fingertips, and to review at will. (You’ll be able to pronounce the words and enunciate correctly..to sound intelligible!)
    Chapters include review of verb tenses, and grammar instruction and exercises comparable to what one would expect to receive in a class taught by a competent French teacher.
    Thank you so much for offering these excellently crafted and presented courses….My next purchases will be the review of the French verbs!

    I have been learning French for some years now and I bought “A Moi Paris – Level 5” several months ago. I am very happy with my purchase. When I was a Physics student many years ago I found that there were three things which were crucial to the learning of any new concept; one was to find a good explanation of the idea, either from a good teacher or a good book, the next was to have some typical examples to look at to take it out of the abstract and make it real, and the last thing was to have some test problems to work on (with answers) to assure myself that I really understood the concept. I was delighted to find that Camille has also taken this approach in “A Moi Paris”, there are very clear discussions of many grammatical points which I have previously found a little difficult to understand, there are interesting and useful stories in French (with English translations) which illustrate the use of these points (and provide new and useful vocabulary) and then there are examples to test your understanding (with answers). All of this is available in both audio (at two speeds) and print formats. It’s an excellent resource for improving your French and I recommend it highly. This is definitely a five star product.

    I’ve used all five audiobook levels. They are exceptional in many ways. They are well constructed and sequentially planned to help you progress, step by step, in learning the French language. I recently enrolled in French classes at the University of Illinois and found these audiobooks to very valuable to my understanding of French as it is spoken, not to mention vocabulary. I listen to one of these audiobooks on a daily basis as I work out at gym. I’ve been doing this for the past several years. As Camille says, repetition is the key to success.

    Also, I love the audiotapes on verb drills and on pronunciation. Very, very helpful and valuable… 5 Stars!

    I have used other titles in this series as well as two poetry items and two Fairy Tale items. I have always been very satisfied with products from this company, so when I saw this new title advertised I purchased it and am delighted. I love the detail and grammar behind the stories. These products have helped me improve my abilities in French.

    I have the entire À Moi Paris series so far. The stories are realistic, enjoyable, and hold one’s interest.
    The option of different listening speeds insure that listeners of different levels are neither overwhelmed nor unchallenged.
    It’s a very well thought out; wonderful tool for learning and/or review.

    A Moi Paris 5 is the fourth book I’ve used in this series, though I also have purchased and enjoyed Une Semaine a Paris and Une Semaine a Paimpol.

    I find Camille’s presentation excellent, easy to understand and with sufficient vocal variation amongst the characters to differentiate them without needing to check the accompanying texts.

    Through the A Moi Paris series, the steady development of the story line about the three girls is an excellent way to enhance understanding, as the inclusion of more complex ideas, vocabulary and grammar is set in a familiar environment, so the listener’s (and reader’s) own visualisation helps comprehension immensely.

    Book 5 seems, to me at least, to be starting a transition towards a more normal speed in the conversations, and has thus helped my understanding of things such as movies or the TV news from Paris.

    I often listen to Camille’s recordings as I drive to and from work (about 30 minutes each way) and frequently find myself having wonderful little moments when hearing a phrase or expression suddenly makes more sense! I find that I can then incorporate them into my own spoken french, giving me more nuanced or different ways to express ideas.

    I should note that I have deliberately only ever listened to the “Street” versions of the audio books as my objective is to be able to (without needing to translate) hear, understand (and use myself) the french that is actually used by the French, instead of the far more formal written french that is typically taught in classes.

    For those starting to transition to more advanced understanding of real spoken french, I am happy to recommend this book (and indeed the entire series) without reservation.
