Hi Alexa, I am having great fun, learning lots, and finding your lessons and methods far superior to anything I’ve tried before (including in-class lessons in Paris!) Best regards, Pat.

I love your site and your podcast materials, particularly Le sujet de la semaine. It is a great resource for improving my French listening skills. I could speak on almost any subject in French, but when confronted with hearing a native French speaker, I had difficulty understanding more than a few words. Le sujet de la semaine was a huge help in overcoming this. I applaud your efforts and wish you the best of luck in your ventures.
