    Ah bon !

    Bienvenue ! Welcome to the Language Theater! Come in, come in! Take your seat and get ready for a unique experience. My name is Jean-Paul and I will take you through this masterful play. 

    I hope you will enjoy the performance and learn to understand and even speak French by the end of the play. Oh, and by the way, it’s a long play... from one act to the next, you will learn the language, discover nuances of French culture, and experience the thrill of a theatrical performance in the language you are learning. Oui, oui ! We start with just a few words of French in act I, but by the end of our play, most of the acts will be performed in French! Oh, what a thrill it is to enjoy a play in French! 

    Now, a few words about the format of the show, or “course” if you will ... A French teacher, Valérie, gives one-on-one lessons. The students who come for the lessons have very little knowledge of French, almost none. From the first lesson to the last, they will learn to the extent that each one of them will be able to understand and speak French well. You are cordially invited to enjoy the Language Theater and learn French with our students. 

    Well, let’s begin Act I. Valérie, our French teacher, is waiting for her student Jack. This is the first time Valérie and Jack meet in person.

    Bonjour les amis and welcome to Act VI. Today, we meet with Michelle for the third time. Valérie has been continuing the lessons with her and, as it turns out, Michelle is very determined to learn French... and to move to France with her retired husband. 

     

    As you know, Valérie meets with her students to practice what they have already learned at home. We hope you do the same, that is to study the material before you enjoy the dialogues. Our website has just the kind of tools you need to progress at the same pace as Michelle and Jacques: lessons, essays, quizzes, pronunciation guide and flashcard. Are you ready then? Enjoy Act VI

Tempo steigert sich sehr früh

Dieser amerikanische Podcast macht zunächst den Eindruck, dass man als Anfänger gut mitkommen könnte. Leider zieht der Schwierigkeitsgrad nach wenigen Folgen sehr an, so dass ich die weiteren Folgen wohl nicht mehr oder erst viel später hören werde.
Seltsam finde ich außerdem die vorgestellten (gescripteten) Charaktere, insbesondere die Dame, die exzessiv auf ihr Gewicht achtet, aber natürlich dauernd ans Essen denkt. Das empfinde ich als regelrecht sexistisch, mal abgesehen davon, dass es extrem nervt. Schade, dass sich die Macher keine realistischeren Geschichten haben einfallen lassen.
