Amazing

This podcast is amazing, being able to understand the phrases rather than just memorising expressions really helps

Alister S ,

Great podcast to learn off

Great podcast and both are fun to listen to and have a great rapport. The only negative is some words and phrases are done at great length while others are said quickly, sometimes forgetting to mention the English translation and are not revisited. Other than that it’s superbe!

Love this podcast

I started learning french last year and while I love it, I have found it very challenging. Then I discovered coffee break french! This podcast has helped me so much. I listen to the podcasts while running every day and my vocab, pronunciation and understanding of french grammar has improved so much.
