Great podcast

This is a great podcast for learning French grammar from a beginner level up to an advanced level, with tons of free content over the years, and an option to pay for even more content if you want it.

Starts out great!

The first 2 seasons are superb! Unfortunately after that, one cannot learn without paying (and paying what I consider a very high amount) for “extended versions” of the lessons. All the grammar and sentence structure, and line-by-line translations, are in the paid version. I muddled through S3, frustrated throughout, and gave up when I discovered S4 was the same. Such a shame, as I thoroughly enjoyed the first two seasons and learned so much.

Awesome learning tool

An excellent French learning podcast for beginners. Good sound quality, professional presentation with intros, a focus on conversational French.

The piano music lead in is a little annoying but a it’s a minor gripe.
