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.

Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
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.
This is a lovely laid back tutorial that takes you step by step through the very basic first words in French. Your name, where you live, are you well. What's the weather? Alexa reminds us we have all the time in the world to learn French, and then goes on to prove how much we already know.
I downloaded Alexa's 5 free audios and like them. At first, she may appear to be random as was noted by an earlier comment; however, her teaching makes progress. She moves a little more slowly and presents French in smaller bites, than do some other teachers. But she makes learning fun and makes her listener feel as if he/she isn't even working at learing French.
As for the previous comment about there being so much English: He's right; Lesson 1 has mostly English and little French. It's all about making the learner comfortable and to not feel intimidated by a foreign language. She goal is to take the foreign out of learning a new language. As Alexa progresses, she gradually uses more French, until there is little, or no, English.
I've completed her first four lessons and look forward to further pleasant, French learning experiences with Alexa.
Ugh. Hers a few words you WON'T be learning..... Soap, deodorant, toothpaste. Also, no French words for bravery, backbone, or testosterone. Just a bunch of silly phrases in random order.... PASS !!!!
