I've just gone through the 1st lesson, and find that although I know most of the vocab, (and find reading the written dialogues fairly easy) and the colloquialisms, I'm still missing a fair amount when just listening.
So my hope is to use them to practice my listening skills.
Incidentally, one of my problems (I don't know how common it is) is that when listening only, I can follow the French for a bit, but if a word or phrase comes up that I don't immediately get, it "throws" me for a while and I tend to miss the next few words.
I am aware that avoiding this is a skill which the keen language learner needs to acquire, but do you have any advice or tips, as it seems to be a 'frame of mind' thing?
Finally, do the travelogues increase in difficulty as the lessons go on, or are they roughly at the same level?
