Excellent programme - it builds from the very basics - sentence structure, vocabulary and grammar.

I just wish the speakers in Premium Plus would talk a little slower. Sometimes Eric speaks so fast you can't pick up the correct pronumciation, even with many repetitions.

I loved this program. I am an advanced French student. I have various (DELF) diplomas in French. I wanted a course that would help me with my pronunciation of French and this was the ideal program. The presenter's were engaging and fun to listen to. They read the dialogue at full speed at first then slowly. I liked that they read it slowly so that you could follow along and mimic their pronunciation.

I found the cost a bit expensive, but it was much cheaper in comparison with other programs. I would like if they had other programs besides the 3 levels in French, so that I could continue using the course.

This is one of the best French programs I have come across and it won't break your bank to buy. It is definitely geared towards adults who seriously want to learn and understand a new language, which is a refreshing change for me over the unstructured, cartoonish language programs that seem to be everywhere.
