    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!

    In fact I’ve bought several À Moi series book and my French conversation has improved a lot due to the series. I can’t wait to purchase serie 7. However I’ve only given a 4 stars because there are typos, mistakes… in 5 and 6 series, possibly others too. Overall still very happy with purchases

    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. Let’s see how I do when I go to France next summer!

    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. It’s difficult living in Tampa where one rarely meets a French person but I found a French teacher who tutors me and corrects my accent! Your lessons are excellent and I recommend them highly!

    These audio books are a boon to anyone wanting to learn French. They are wonderful. I have been involved with several languages all of my adult life and have found these audio books to be of immeasurable help. I especially appreciate the premise that one needs to learn how French is actually spoken and not just learn to “book read”. Keep up the great work guys!

    Great product. I try to spend 5 to 10 minutes a day learning French. I’ve used a variety of apps, books, CDs, etc. This one is the most fun. I’ve learned more from this series in a couple of weeks than I learned in using other products over many months.
