Didn't get what I came for but loved it anyways.

My level of French is advanced enough that I can read excerpts from French books and understand the gist of it, but not advanced enough to be able to understand spoken French. So honestly, I was hoping that this podcast would help.

I actually really like this podcast though, because the story is really, really interesting and I've never been a fan of audiobooks. I haven't finished it yet so I'm not sure what the rest is like.

So basically, if you're looking to seriously study French, this isn't right for you; however, if you're looking to dabble in a bit of French, French culture, and some odd phrases here and there, then this is a little something that's really fun to listen to. :p

TL;DR - Doesn't teach French but is something fun for French learners of all levels. Hope you enjoy!

Fun way to practice french

This is a fun way to listen to french. This will definitely not teach you french, but could be listened to and understood while simultaneously taking an introductory french course or to refresh if you've been away from the language for a while. The story itself is interesting, though corny sometimes :)

Highly recommended!
