    I have used multiple levels of the Audiobook Series and find them to be very useful. They are current, engaging and fun and are a great resource for anyone learning French. I thoroughly recommend them – indeed I’ve used most of the audiobooks (verbs, dialogs, prononciation and rate them all very highly.)

    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 bought Levels 5 & 6 – both excellent products. The audio clips are great for improving listening skills and practising spoken French. The whole package is full of useful language tips from grammar to usage; in fact they cover practice in all essential language skills. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this series.

    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!
