From a listener:
This is the "Craigslist" of French language learning websites - straightforward, easy to use, - and very effective! As a B2 level French speaker, I have tried many of the resources available online - both free and paid subscriptions. The weekly podcasts with complete transcripts/translations and audio edits are excellent! The questions and explanations on Facebook are an added bonus. I highly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for an effective tool to help you improve your French!

Thanks, Paul. After a month travelling in France, I can report that your podcasts have helped me immensely with comprehension. And I am even starting to slip a few good phrases into the conversation.
