    Excellent resource. I bought Upper Intermediate then went back a stage to reinforce skills. The explanations and exercises are real and relevant.

    I would give the audiobooks the highest rating. They are well done. Also, I appreciate the quick replies and the help I have been given with installing the audiobooks as well as receiving the newsletter. I study daily using the audiobook as well as your newsletters. There was an adjustment to make in order to have the audiobook put on my Chromebook, but it does seem to be working well. It just takes getting used to. The technology can be frustrating, but the lessons are very well done.

    I am so happy I found you! It has been a dream of my to learn to speak French since high school. I studied French in high school and one year in College. I am now 61 years old. I pick up French again about two years ago. I am enjoying your simple and effective teaching method, you explain things so clearly. I enjoy that you teach formal French, but most importantly to me, you also teach the way people speak on the streets. That is exactly what I am interested in, speaking and being able to communicate with others, which you are making it possible with your teaching method.

    The audio is terrific. The contemporary language and idiomatiqure expressions are so helpful. I would suggest a change in the menu navigation so the user can pinpoint parts of the grammar section more specifically. Right now the outline is very general and it’s inefficient trying to select a specific part.

    Great for both active and passive comprehension. I like to listen through twice, one without the transcript, one with. I’ve used flash cards to help memorise the grammar. The 6th book is more about acquiring vocab compared to the 5th’s intensive explanations about grammar – wasn’t sure that was good in the first instant, but it has helped me acquire new phrases and idioms quickly

    I am considering buying the next level when I’m through this book, but it is expensive. Would love a subscription version!

    Very easy to use and follow French audio learning system. I use it on my iPhone, computer and iPad. It all synchs very well and is easy to follow. What’s good is that it’s created in nice bite-size chunks so I can plan my learning sessions very well. Camille also explains everything in enough detail but not too much to send your head spinning.

    At the end of the Upper-Intermediate level I will definitely buy the Advanced level, and probably the French Verb Drills. Thanks,

    Excellent correlation between the vocabulary and grammar with the practical use of things in the stories! Your email updates are always informative and help with small lessons along the way. Ç’est possible que je saurai parler français un jour!

    This is by far the best course I have found for those wishing to speak French. It tackles, head-on, the differences between written and spoken French ( I had previously spent many hours listening and re-listening to Open University audios, trying vainly to reconcile the spoken words I heard with the transcript in front of me. Only now, with the benefit of the French Today course have I understood the differences). I also like the early concentration on the present tense, with the less common tenses, and subjunctive – do most of us really need these- delayed to more advanced levels.

    Have followed Camille and her French Today website for years as my commitment to my French studies has waxed and waned. What hasn’t faltered over that time is the excellence of Camille and Olivier’s products, be it their website and blog, the À Moi Paris series, the verb drills and fundamentals, or Camille’s recent foray into live videos on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. With the right amount of application, one cannot help but improve when using all the highly professionally produced resources available from French Today.

    I appreciate the way that Camille builds vocabulary by reintroducing unusual words and constructions from earlier books and chapters so reinforcing our familiarity with colloquially spoken French.

    I really enjoy and appreciate your method and efforts to make learning this wonderful language accessible. I have compared it to other methods and find your way to be much more enjoyable and effective. While I have visited France, I have not yet been able to return. I hope to do so in the near future. Meanwhile I study mostly at home and by myself. I also converse with other French speakers by Whatsapp and find myself more and more confident in both writing and speaking. The most recent audio for me has been the folk tales. It is quite the challenge but also very interesting. Thank you once again for your efforts, particularly during this virus causing so much isolation.
    Bien Cordialement. Mark Stocks

    Good content, modern style, easy to learn, Modern phrases, it greatly compliments my ageing French grammar tuition which let me read and write but say nothing useful 😀. I appreciate the regular updates which adds to the lessons & is a reminder to keep going, merci beaucoup 😀
