    For the price - you can't beat this brief first lesson. The speaker is clear and articulate and explains the words well. The only recommendation I have is to allow a longer pause or space so one can practice the words. Overall, I enjoyed and will look into other lessons.

    After many years of developing and harnessing her language-teaching skills with The French Ecole, Alexa has now created an audio treat for people who wish to learn a new language from scratch, without any pressure, in fun, relaxed, and manageable chunks. Highlights of Lesson 1 include: an introduction to the class format and some basic vocabulary; how to say how you are and where you live; talking about the weather; a small quiz; and a French song.

  • French for Beginners: Part 2: Lessons 14 to 21

    "University level French lessons"

    Overall

    Get through this beginners series and you will have had the equivalent of a year-long university language program. Alexa is thorough, articulate and has an incredibly cute personality, which makes listening enjoyable. This has a supplemental guide to help with multiple learning, and is methodical in its programming. I tried listening to a couple of other "learn-French-in-a-day" programs, and they were unrealistic and useless. This one sticks!

    My complaint is that Alexa is a little bit too wordy...she attempts to explain every little reason for why verbs conjugate a certain way, or where a word derives from...a lot of French language trivia. I would prefer to get on with the lessons, because she makes it so easy! One other complaint, she does not give enough time for practice of speech...repeating sentences or dialogue, or even responding to dialogue, which I really need.

  • "Clear Voices, Catchy Tunes, Downloa..."

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    This is entirely in French, not a scrap is in English. I was initially disappointed but my child loved the songs, and OMG, the tunes are catchy. Later I was humming some of it.

    The child narrators/singers have very clear voices, you can even hear all the words in the tongue twisters.

    There is a downloadable PDF - that has the words with translations directly below all with fun simple drawings.

    This is well worth the money, glad I got it.
