Great Conversational Learning Method
Having carried out business in Tahiti in the 1960’s ( 6 weeks a year for 3 years) , my limited french got me by, but prior to Tahiti I had learned so much unnecessary french, it wasn’t helpful at all.
2017 two months in the south of France much better, but I wish I had discovered this course earlier as there are so many expressions and informal ways of conversing that I was unaware of. which would have totally improved my french experiences. Next time I will be much more confident, Thank you
Best tool for acquiring French conversational skills
I’ve worked at acquiring more than just basic French skills using several popular programs. None have had the impact on my conversational skills as has French Together. Its intuitive approach mirrors how children learn to speak. Listening to authentic French dialogue first to acquire vocabulary and pronunciation, then sentence structure is the best approach to learning to speak the language.
This application is simply a stunning success in helping learners know subtleties in using idioms, the nuance of pacing and rhythm of conversational French as well as the fundamentals of grammar.
It’s a genuinely terrific method of learning. My conversational skills have kept forward.
He was very surprised that I had studied French only for a few months
After using the French Together course, I had a chance to speak to a French person – I traveled to England and Normandy and dared to start a conversation with our guide (who is from Paris and spoke perfect English. He wasn’t very talkative with me in French – but I was thrilled that he understood me and I – him. He was very surprised that I had studied French only for a few months.
By day twenty of this course, I felt confident enough to speak
The best thing about the French Together course for me, was just how accessible and enjoyable it made the process of learning the language. That’s never happened to me before.
From the capsule-sized lessons where I was able to listen, read and understand the concepts around the dialogues in as little as five minutes at a time, to the everyday scenarios that I could practice (e.g asking for directions at the train station, shopping), I found myself absorbing the vocabulary and the nuances of grammar from the course automatically, because it was easy to understand.
One of the best parts of this course is the fact that you had the dialogues at ‘normal speed’ versus slowed down dialogues, so it meant that you could hear how the conversation would sound in ‘real time’ vs the ‘slowed down’ audio for your ears to ‘listen more’.
By day twenty of this course, I felt confident enough to speak (I had to travel to France), as well as understand simple everyday sentences/directions, which only enhanced my stay in France.
In brief, I do recommend this course highly, because of the understanding and confidence that it gives you!
My French vocabulary has gotten a lot bigger
I’ve now finished Level 1 and I think it’s a huge difference in my French skills now compared to before.
My French vocabulary has gotten a lot bigger and thanks to the audio – both normal speed & slow speed – my pronunciation has improved and I better understand simple, common meanings in French just by listening.
As I’ve already said in one of my previous e-mails, I’ve struggled a bit with French in school for a few years until I got in contact with you, Benjamin, and this course. It has truly helped me a lot. The course makes learning much less boring and tiring,
I really appreciate the side notes in almost every chapter that either explains something from that chapter or helps you to remember some things a bit more easily.
Yes, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’d like to learn French, and I think that I will continue reading it myself now and then to repeat everything I learned since I do not live in a French speaking country or talk French regularly.
I wish I had known these lessons before moving to France
It is an excellent French course – very different than how we learn a language in the classroom. I wish I had known these lessons before moving to France. It took me FOREVER to figure out that you could switch ‘on’ and ‘nous’ when speaking. I had no idea what people were saying! Great work!
I look forward to it, even after a long day at work
There are so many online resources for learning French that it can be overwhelming to try and choose!
I found I was spending too much time looking for the “best” course when I should have been spending that time learning. I found the French Together course was just what I had been looking to find.
It gives me a quick lesson I can easily fit into my day. I look forward to it, even after a long day at work. I can access it on my computer, tablet, and phone – so can easily complete or review a lesson when I have a few minutes to spare.
The phrases are real and applicable. The speakers are real people, so do not have the computer voice glitches I hear in some other programs. And I love that I can listen to them in real time for comprehension and slowly for repetition.
The notes are just right to me – enough to be helpful and interesting, but not so much that I get bogged down. Lastly, I like that there isn’t extraneous dialogue in English.I’m hoping for the next 30 days SOON!!
