    I recently ordered both Une Semaine à Paris and the Verb Drills and am so happy to have found this resource. I’ve been looking for a way to improve my understanding of spoken French and my pronunciation, and I’m finding Une Semaine à Paris to fit right in with my level of comprehension. I’m challenged without being discouraged and can say “hooray for me” when I understand the gist of the story without the written words in front of me. The verb drills are wonderful for helping conjugations to become automatic and the audio is giving me a structure for daily practice which I couldn’t seem to accomplish on my own. Thank you so much for all the work you have put into helping so many people learn and improve their French. I feel as if I have a friend in France!

    I am taking a 13-year-old granddaughter to Paris this summer and thought this might be a good way to brush up my rusty French. It exceeds my expectations! Not only do I have the opportunity to hear everyday French, but much of the story relates to things we will be doing.

    I’ve been listening to each chapter in “street French” and then trying to answer the questions. Then I listen to it slowly, while looking at the transcript, to pick up anything I missed and to study any new expressions or phrases. Last week I spent several days with my granddaughter, who has not yet studied any French in school. She has been working with a beginners’ program on the computer. I had her read the transcript in English while we listened to the slow version of the story. She was pleased to find some of the things she had studied on the computer used in everyday conversation, and noticed the words that were similar in French and English.

    Thank you for providing such an enjoyable way to study French!

    I am already reasonably fluent in French (although I still have a lot to learn!) so I bought this novel as some good practice for me. I found it easy to understand and interesting. I would definitely recommend it to those wanting more practice. I listened to it on my way home from work and couldn’t wait to get started when I hopped in the car. I’ve listened to it through once and I’m looking forward to starting it all over again and picking up even more learning from it.

    I have been learning french on and off for about ten years now. The problem I had was there was no structure to my learning, I flitted from one thing to another and also had a tendance to read french but not listen to it. With the exelent une semaine a Paris audio novel series l can do both. Well worth the money.

    I have found all of French Today’s material to be relevant. And our recent purchase of ‘Une Semaine à Paris’ is no exception. We’re planning a week’s trip to Paris and this audio novel gives us so much relevant vocabulary, plus the street French version can’t be matched. It is also great to take in the car while I commute. I like to listen to a chapter while I drive and then test myself with the Q&A. And I have to say that I very much appreciate Camille’s voice. We’re French Today fans and, through this audio novel, we are already living our week in Paris!

    Thank you very much for giving me the free upgrade of Une Semaine A Paris. I’ve been enjoying listening to Camille’s recording of the new Street French version in my car. Everyday I must spend 3 hours commuting to and from work. So listening to Camille in my car on my way to/from work is pretty much the only way I can progress with learning French. I love the new PDF format with the English text right below the French text. It’s much easier on the eye this way. In the past I had to open up the English PDF and position it next to the French PDF to obtain a “side-by-side” translation, which made me feel quite dizzy after a while.

    One thing I did notice is that Thomas and Angela still visited the Virgin Megastore on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées but currently the Virgin Megastore is no longer there. Perhaps you could replace the Virgin Megastore with some other store that still exists in the next upgrade?

    I love this website. I’m between beginner and intermediate French levels but am able to enjoy the book very much. I am most excited about the many articles and new vocabulary (quite handy for traveling) you receive vie email once you make an initial purchase. We will be traveling to France soon, and my French will still be very rusty but I intend to continue studying with these delightful products.

    I’ve really enjoyed listening to the audio book while I drive places. it helps keep my mind on the loop and forces me to think in French a bit more every day, it’s very helpful with pronunciations, now I know that the way I was reading was wrong. it also helps me to keep interested since the subjects apply to situation that we might really encounter. It would have been helpful if the characters had their own voices, it would make much clearer who is who, nevertheless grate work!

    I have found the French Today audio Novel and Workbook Une Semaine à Paris to be extremely helpful, and (so far) the most delightful experience on this journey to learn this beautiful language.

    I drive 300 miles a day as a courier and I don’t know how I could bear it without the French Today lessons.

    I completed the 120 half-hour lessons offered by Pimsleur and learned much but the experience is not comparable to the French Today method.

    I purchased Une Semaine a Paris some time ago, but just recently focused on this audiobook as we are preparing to travel soon to France (including une semaine a Paris!). The story is great as it follows a couple along their journey from choosing where to stay in Paris, to packing, to air travel, and finally to exploring Paris. The language level is low intermediate and full of idioms that one is most likely to hear in these situations. Inserted between the chapters, Camille has included (in English) a wealth of very helpful information that relates to the previous chapter.

    I listen to each of the French chapters over and over (while walking with an mp3 player) and soon I am in Paris with my friend, Camille, who is definitely preparing me to enjoy Paris! My coincidence level has definitely grown as I pick up more and more fluency relative to these unique situations.
