  1. Just discovered the program on iTunes and love it! However, I have difficulty downloading lesson 5 onwards on my iPhone4. Help please…

  2. I just recently received an ipod and then discovered podcasts on iTune.
    After listening to each I thought the best one to learn french from was
    Coffee Break French. I have listened through lesson five and am very pleased with the clarity of the presentation and quality of Mark’s voice. His emphasis on correct pronunciation is greatly appreciated.

  3. hi dear
    my name is morteza. i am from Afghanistan listening to your french listening and materials. it is very nice for learning french and i appreciate your efforts for preparing this stuff and website to help learners to be more easier.
    i have listened to 4 first listening.
    i would like to learn the alphabet although i know, want to make it with native french sound.
    would you please add one more listening with alphabet sound and learning.
    by the way
    thank you very much

  4. I am enjoying the lessons, but I wish I could access the written words by going into the website as I would have a better acceptance of the pronunciation and then submit to memory easier

  5. Love your podcasts; going to Paris in June for 2 weeks — this will be invaluable. Took French for 7 years in grammar, high school and college. But mostly conjugated verbs so this conversational approach is wonderful!

  9. Very nice course! Congrats! I’m from Brazil and I always wanted to learn french and this course is very cool and easy!

    Can I ask a question here? I didn’t understand the first mode to introduce a member of family to other people, the easy mode, before ‘Je te présent..’. Can you write for me what was said? If it’s not an abuse hahaha

    This podcast is awesome!
    Félicitations! Merci beaucoup!

  10. I love these lessons!! They have helped me a lot, it’s a nice format and easy to understand. Very helpful tips on pronunciation. Thank You!

    Yes it’s “voici or voila” although French people literally use “voila” most of the times. Even me because i speak French at a good level, i use voila in a sentence even though in some cases it doesn’t mean anything, i guess people just love that word.
