    I love three things about the Moi a Paris audiobooks. First is the encouragement for those “of a certain age” (such as me) to forge ahead despite advanced years. Second, the emphasis on spoken French rather than the French we might have learned from many years ago. Third, the weekly updates. A recent experience illustrates how effective the French Today method can be. We met a French couple from Amiens seven years ago and have seen them several times since. We just spent ten days together in Washington DC. When we had met my wife (a former French teacher) had to do most of the speaking. During their recent visit I was able to participate fully in all of our interactions and was able to contribute actively. What a difference those audiobooks made!

    If one cannot make progress with this learning approach and material, the problem lies with oneself! Got to get myself into gear.

    I recently bought the Upper Intermediate and Advanced books. The programmes are well thought out, and would be useful for anyone starting to extend their French but are also very helpful for those like me who have already studied French using a variety of resources and are seeking to revise and consolidate their learning. Listening to Camille is improving my listening skills of modern spoken French. The explanations are clear, and I enjoy the exercises at the end of each chapter. The regular emails focusing on particular points are also helpful.

    An excellent set of French learning resources. Learning made easily accessible on a smartphone and / or computer. Camille and Olivier are exceptionally helpful in answering any queries you might have. Highly recommended!

    I have found the A Moi Paris series very helpful in my retirement hobby of improving my French comprehension (building on ‘O’ level French taken at school many moons ago). I like the contemporary conversational style of the stories, and the mechanism whereby the English translation can be easily hidden or revealed. Sections on explanation of relevant grammar are well-presented and easily understood.

    I’m happy to give A Moi Paris (can’t get the accent on the A) a very positive recommendation.

    I found French Today after about six months of studying French. Resources for the complete beginner are plentiful and I was happy with what had done, but I needed something more to help me make the transition from beginner to advanced beginner and intermediate. Frenchtoday.com has provided me with several of the resources that I needed. First, there was the plentiful enunciated French audio and written material. I found it very helpful to listen to both the enunciated French and street French versions of everything that I studied as well as reading the transcript. Second, there were the plentiful, excellent grammar explanations of the usage in each chapter. These explanations were the best of any that I have seen on the internet. I use the free articles on frenchtoday.com, especially when it comes to advice on how to proceed in one’s French studies and I became a Patreon contributor. At the end of my first year, I did an excellent week of immersion with Clarisse (Ile de Ré) who I found on the French Today website.

    French Today audiobooks are amazing. I have studied many other french lesson versions over years but these audiobooks are the best. They teach in a logical sense with very clear and concise information. I never tire of Camille’s clear , crisp voice.
    Also, the customer service is really exceptionally outstanding from both Camille and Olivier.

    Dear Camille and Olivier, August 13, 2023

    I must thank you for your consistant attention and care to my account. As well as thoroughly enjoying your « À Moi Paris » Audio Series at different levels and speeds, I look forward to Camille’s weekly lesson and update. The subject matter is always excellent and current.

    As you know, I now have the ‘Pronunciation’ audio too, so that I can practice mine before my next visit to France. I’m finding it very helpful and Camille’s smooth and clear enunciation of the Audio Series is, without exageration, delightful !

    I commend you both on fulfilling the objectives you promote. As a client, having the details of my goals and purchases completed so efficiently, I am happy, and I am confident in recommending you.

    Sincerely, Anna Belle, Canada

    The A Moi Paris series is a great way to learn French as it’s really spoken. Each carefully crafted dialogue is based on everyday situations and focusses on a particular aspect of grammar. I like the flexibility of listening at two different speeds and the emphasis on listening and speaking out loud. My grammar was already quite good, having done A level at school, and I thought at first that I’d find the study guides boring, but I’ve been surprised at how many gaps there were in my knowledge and I’ve already learned so many useful expressions. Best of all are the exercises using audio only to really test how much I’ve learned. As others have said already, I wish I’d discovered this course earlier!

    These audio books are extremely useful. I listen to the stories multiple times when out walking, usually the enunciated version a couple of times and then the street level version. The grammar and exercises I also listen to without the text but I do go over them when back at a desk. The information provided complements other language learning apps by providing a different presentation of the rules which can help enormously with understanding them. I have recently purchased the advanced books which I look forward to getting to next.

    Excellent program. I’ve tried other programs, but they do not compare!

    This is by far the BEST! ❤️
