I have made it through the free material in the last couple of years (twice), and I am seriously considering buying the 3rd and or 4th season. It is so great! I’ve developed my language so much, especially the listening skills which is one of the hardest things, and it is fun too. They have created a warm and familiar learning environment for me. Thank you.

One of the best French podcasts out there, if not the best. A must have for everyone learning French.
