Too much too fast

It would seem the instructors are a bit out of touch with the reality of how people actually learn. Beginners, do not use this course, it is more an elite refresher for the child of a diplomat who grew up in country and now actually needs to learn the rules of the language as an adult.

Please slow down for us

I love listening and learning but it’s way too fast. I can obviously rewind but it would be more helpful if you all could slow down the pronunciation of words and phrases.Thank you so much for making these Episodes. X

Learn French by Podcast

Thank you, Hugh, Aurelie, and Xavier for putting together this absolutely wonderful program. I can’t say enough good things about it, but I’ll try. The dialogues are realistic, intelligent, well thought out, and chock full of idioms, grammar, and speech patterns that are the essence of really speaking French. The pdf accompanying each lesson adds a lot to the learning. Please don’t ever stop these lessons.

Best podcast for intermediate learners

This is the best French-learning podcast I've found for people at the intermediate level, hands down. I studied French in high school and college many years ago, and have been trying, off and on, to progress through self-study for decades. My results had been lukewarm at best. I struggle more with comprehension than I do with expression. However, since finding Learn French by Podcast (as well as my other favorite teacher on YouTube--Johan Tekfak from Français Authentique...intermediates, check him out as well) and diligently making my way through the lessons almost daily, my comprehension has greatly improved. I love that the topics covered are things you might talk about to a friend, not made-up and inauthentic dialogs about going to "la piscine avec Luc." I listened to one this morning that was all about Hugh being called out for being a victim of cell phone inattention syndrome, as he was supposed to be having a conversation but was instead half-looking at his phone the whole time. I learned how to say "I'll make a deal/bet with you." Yesterday I learned how to express the metaphor of "backing the right horse." Terrific stuff. But as others have said, the podcast is not targeted for beginners.

Awful

Do not try to use this podcast if you are trying to learn. Awful planning, with irrelevant words that a beginner doesn't need. They shove so much down your throat without starting with the very basics. Wasted hours of my life trying to listen to this podcast before realizing there are 1000 better ones out there.

Enjoyable and educational but hard to hear

I’ve learned quite a bit with this podcast, but recent episodes have the volume too low. So I end up having to max out the volumes to hear the speakers. Please turn up the volume when recording new episodes. Merci!

Really good

This is a great podcast, they cover a lot of topics in each episode. You can listen to it a few times a learn new things each time as your knowledge of the language improves. It's also quite good for learning how to speak French, with full expressions and phrases. It's a bit hard without the downloadable lessons, but extremely useful. One of the best french-learning podcasts I've heard.

Excellent and Useful!

I can speak French fluently, but haven't had the opportunity to practice where I live. These are excellent podcasts for expanding the language! Lessons are in a few minutes of dialogue and then the key words and phrases are broken down. Short enough to do it everyday without feeling like a chore, and with a great quality of vocabulary words, phrasing and scope of subjects. Haven't tried the pdfs yet but excited to do so after reading the other reviews!

good but can be improved

The first lesson I listened to was great, both speakers seemed to be francophones; then all the others have a pretty heavy english accent. Also they don't dissect the phrases as much. dialogues can be shorter with more explanation of the content and grammar.

Useless.

It is entirely people speaking French, but doesn't teach a single thing. If you truly are a beginner then there is nothing at all beneficial for you here, short of just hearing people speak French an not explain what they're saying.

Exactly what I was looking for!

Dialogue in French that is relevant with modern terms and expressions. Where the instructor breaks it down in an easy understandable manner. Très bien!!
