Good

This podcast is great for intermediates. Beginners should go and learn basic verbs/conjugations first, etc. (I recommend Duolingo as a place to start).

I’m not sure here but I assume there are no transcripts for these lessons? I play the episodes in half-speed as I’m still learning how to detect subtle phonetic differences between words but then I hear words that I don’t recognise.

As someone who is still only intermediate, I find it difficult to estimate how some words are spelt based on how they’re pronounced, so at times, I’m left not knowing the word and how to research it. I feel like a transcript or a glossary would really help!

En tout cas, good podcasts!

Excellent.

This is a great method of teaching French. Very clever and much appreciated.

Excellent

Decided to write a review as some other reviewers are confused about where to find the lessons’ transcripts - they are all on the LFBP website, very nicely done, clear layout, covering the dialogs, extra examples, all new words used in a lesson, and exercises. The answers to the exercises are all on the website too.

I first started learning French with LFBP back in 2010, but didn’t continue. Now came back to the podcasts and transcripts during the isolation time, and am really enjoying it. A lesson a day, everyday something new. Thank you, LFBP team :-)
