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 5 include: some more basic vocabulary and numbers; conjugation revision of the verb "to have"; and building sentences in order to describe yourself.

Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
I think this is my favorite of the French language learning that is available on Audible. I really like listening to Alexa. I'm skeptical that any of these audios would truly work for a complete novice, but they are certainly working well for me to brush up on my high school French.
Awesome book for the language beginners
I could easily catch up with this language
Pretty much nothing.
Some say Alexa is wordy, and so she is; however, not everybody catches on with basic explanations. I'm now working on Lesson 15, her last free lesson, and plan to continue. She obviously enjoys what she's doing and her enjoyment is infectious. It's because of her that I've become hooked on studying French
Her explanations are thorough, sometimes with a bit of overkill, but that's better than being inadequate and having some people give up for lack of understanding. She procedes from one concept to the next at a comfortable rate and offers adequate review. Unlike of some expensive, big name French learning programs, she explains French grammar and verb conjugation, and does so in a context that makes the learner enjoy the language. A person having worked through Alexa's lessons could go to Paris with confidence, without being embarased about the way he/she speaks
I gave 4 stars on the performance because of the music. My one complaint is this, that her music at the beginning and end of each lesson is a bit loud, but it's also easily skipped over with the computer.
