Highly recommended. I have purchased a number of Camille’s audios and I have really enjoyed them all.
After relearning Italian, my next goal was to learn enough French to feel comfortable with at least the basics when in France. I find it really helpful to use my commute to work as a time to listen to the language I am learning and Camille’s audios are perfect, exactly what I was looking for. I really enjoy listening to Camille, so much nicer than the many tedious language audios available, and I really appreciate that Camille uses contemporary French, rather than text book, so much better to be exposed to what we will actually hear when in France. Thank you Camille, listen to your audios has really improved my comprehension, vocabulary and confidence to speak French.

Le livre est très claire, et je peux presque comprendre a la vitesse normale, mais pas tout les mots, maintenant. Je suis tres heureux de pouvoir utiliser cet outil, maintenant, et j’espère voyager en france un jour dans le futur.

Thank you for This really helpful recording. I am preparing for a month long trip to France and these conversations are perfect to help me feel ready to practice my french when I arrive. The tips and vocabulary sections in English are great. So useful and fun!! I found Camille on
About.French.com and now am a regular reader of her posts there and on French Today. I feel like I have my very own REAL french friend!
Thank you for all the ways you are helping me fulfill my life long dream of becoming fluent in French.

I’m enjoying Essential French Dialogs greatly. I’ve completed eight of the 11. The pace and level are just right for me and I can check that I’m making progress. I listen at normal speed, to test how much I can understand, then work through the text with the audio at slow speed. The information and tips are very valuable. I have several of the French Today products and they are consistently high quality, friendly and stimulating.

Essential French Dialogs has been an excellent review for me. I especially appreciated the slow versions of the spoken French when I first started. Well done!

I am heading to France shortly, and I’ve found the Essential French Dialogues very useful for vocabulary, dialogue simulation, and Camille’s terrific tips and warnings. I’m a bit nervous about facing native French speakers in their own country, but these lessons give me confidence that I am prepared to face ordinary daily interactions.
Mary, Australia Verified Owner –
This whole series is great! I am sure if I practised every day I would be speaking better French by now. I do manage to get by whenever I visit France and make a huge effort not to speak English – Camille’s lessons have generated confidence for me to do that. Thank You, Mary

The five-star rating is well-deserved. Camille has set forth an excellent product, recorded in two speeds, that will help the beginner know what to say and how to say it properly. It will help the advanced beginner understand what is being said back to them, avoiding confusion and embarrassment It will also demystify a lot of the small rules of French interaction that cause tourists to stand out as tourists.
John Verified Owner –
Very useful and accessible. As one who is heading to France soon, I find the tips and vocabulary particularly useful to help me prepare to ‘immerse’.
Linda Verified Owner –
I have purchased several of the French Today programs and am very happy with all of them. Having studied textbook French for several years, I’m particularly pleased that French Today focuses on everyday colloquial French, which really makes sense and complements the classroom French. Thanks so much for providing such useful and enjoyable French language materials.

Very very helpful! I really love the product.

I LOVE the French Today audio lessons, audio novels, workbooks, verb drills, poetry and classic tales. I was the lucky winner of a French Today contest and have delighted in each of the audio lessons I received. Not only is it easy to listen to Camille’s voice, but she also has a very approachable method of instructing the listener on the way French people use their language. She clearly differentiates between textbook French and the way French people actually speak.
I began my interest in French in high school and continued through college and graduate school. Additionally, I had a job that required travel to Paris on a regular basis. So, I am not new to the study of French. However, I have never had access to such clear and comprehensive explanations of French. These audio lessons and the supporting transcripts and workbooks are the best instructional material I have ever heard or seen. I learn something new each time I listen to Camille.
Thank you, Camille and Olivier for producing these products and for sharing them with me!
