Awesome podcast for learning French

This is the perfect supplement to my French course and is great for getting in French practice when short on time. It’s really cool to listen to and be able to understand native French speakers.

Great way to learn French

I took French many years ago in school, and decided to try and pick it up again. I started with season 2 of Coffee Break French. A lot of my high school French came back to me but I still needed this to get back up to speed. I then got the members versions of season 3 and 4. After working my way through season 3 and feeling pretty good about my progress, I started season 4. Whoa that seemed way to hard, so in addition to reviewing some of season 3, I signed up for the Masterclass which is a bridge between 3 and 4. I learned a lot and finally got back to season 4. I am now over halfway through season 4 and I understand and can laugh st the joking between Marc and Pierre. I am still a long way from anything approaching fluency but far from where I started a few years ago. I play Coffee Break French whenever I am in the car alone.

THE most helpful resource

This podcast has a great instructional flow where it has you try to listen, guides you through parts you may have missed and then has you try again! The satisfaction that comes from hearing the same passage with new knowledge and understanding is a win you don’t often feel when learning a language. Thank you!
