    I appreciate how this series is organized with conversations at different speeds, vocabulary which is current and “street wise” rather than textbook, and beneficial Q&A exercises. I use Quizlet to create my own flashcards from the lessons. I plan to do repeat the lessons to reinforce my learning. French Today has been a big help to me over the years to keep up with my French. I am also finally going to realize a dream of mine…I have scheduled an immersion trip that I found through the French Today website!!! I can’t wait!

    I started the audiobook series at Level 3 about a month ago and I am working my way through it. I find the lessons clear and enjoyable, I particularly like the audios in Enunciated and Modern French which is helping me to comprehend the language as it is spoken. I was previously struggling with the disconnect between what I was reading and hearing and this is starting to improve.

    I would advise anyone learning using this audiobook series to take their time. Camille has put in a huge effort to create the audios and study guides and there is a lot of content, rushing through the lessons means you will miss a lot. I go through each lesson many times over several days just to consolidate it. When you feel you have mastered a lesson, keep replaying it in Modern French because “repetition is the key”.

    I will be continuing through the levels. I may take some time but I’m in no hurry and I know with this method ‘je vais y arriver’

    I found the recordings to be excellent. It was a very crisp French. (I only listened to the modern French; the slower version was painful for my ears, but I have studied French for several years.)

    The vocabulary and idioms were very helpful and realistic; my congratulations to whoever wrote the text.

    The story is woven together in a way that keeps your interest.

    The narrator pauses and changes her voice enough to convey that this is a convesation.

    I was very happy with the product.

    À Moi Paris is an excellent intermediate (L3-L4) learning method, providing everyday conversation to enhance listening skills, a study guide to review grammar, and exercises to reinforce comprehension. I highly recommend these lessons. My vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, listening skills, and my confidence in speaking French has significantly improved.

    Lately I have been taking French Today with me on my daily walks. The app is on my phone and it’s super easy. I set it on the Enunciated speed so I can “echo” Camille as I walk along. This has helped develop and maintain the muscles in my mouth, which can become slack if you’re just reading or listening. As a result, I am speaking aloud for at least 30 minutes as I walk along. The L6 begins the introduction of some really interesting vocabulary and idioms that help me move beyond the dreaded intermediate plateau. I have purchased L7 and L8 and look forward to that challenge. And of course, I listen many times to the same thing, including Story Mode at Modern French speed. Awesome.

    I am a ‘mature’ student (retired lady) who has been studying French at an adult college, but after 3 years was not able to continue. Having received your weekly newsletters for 18 months I knew immediately that Frenchtoday was the way forward! I am thoroughly enjoying the A Moi Paris audiobooks and am surprised I had not tried this amazing way of studying before . Thank you Camille and Olivier, you are truly inspirational.

    Thankyou, Camille and Olivier,

    I have just started working on the Level 5 audio book and really appreciate the clear explanations and the 2 speeds of recording. (I’m still using the slower speed at the moment)

    I have thought about purchasing your audio books before and I am so glad that I actually have done it!

    The most effective course that I have ever done. My French conversational skills are improving daily and I highly recommend doing the Verb Drills also.

    I like these audiobooks for several reasons. I can listen and test my comprehension, re-listen if I don’t understand, follow along in my own language, and also use them for dictation practice. I also appreciate the two speeds for listening.
