    don’t look at this, testing

    Fun and practical podcast
    I think the format of these lessons works really well: the host recites a phrase in French, explains the vocabulary, then repeats it. The phrases are usually about recent news stories, which is interesting, and Louis does a wonderful job of explaining the text without using much English.

    The ads are so long, almost as long as the podcast
    Podcast materials are great, the embedded ads are so annoying that it’s unbearable to keep on listening to the podcast

    Great podcast!
    Thank you, Louis! I find the examples of the use of words and phrases in sentences very helpful and enjoy the current topics. I definitely recommend this podcast. Love, love, love!
  • Crisrura
    So helpful!
    I love the way the teacher introduces the mini lesson. Perfect to listen while I run. I can’t wait to download the handouts!
  • NazliNamini
    Très bon podcast!
    Je suis une débutante mais je trouve ce podcast très utile et Louis is very sympathetic and has a very warm voice and the content is never boring! I definitely recommend it!

  • mereloho
    Tres bon! Merci pour ce podcast!
    Je m’écoute ce podcast regulairement, et c’est très utile et agréable. J’apprends beaucoup ( je pense). Une suggestion - Je souhaite que tu utiliserais moins de cognates et plus des mots que sont très différents en anglais. Je suis américaine. Il y a longtémps depuis j’ai étudié français. Je n’ai utilisé pas google translate pour ce message. Donc, j’espère que c’est compréhensible. Je suis sûr beaucoup de mots sont incorrects, mais, c’est la vie! I don’t think I said anything insulting or trop stupide!😊 I truly appreciate this podcast, as it brings back the 12 years of French classes I took up through my senior year of high school. There are very few francophiles where I live in TX. Louis turned me on to the lingvist.com app, which I also use, and while I don’t get every answer right, it’s kind of too easy. This podcast is the best! And I'm all for the commercials. You need to make $ for all the hard work you do!
  • strawbudget
    perfect for practicing pronunciation
    I will definitely continue using these episodes to work on the muscle memory for speaking french clearly. Love it.
  • Sofi Alexis
    Too slow unrealistic
    No one speaks french like this. No one speaks this slow. This will not help you improve.
  • renn12m
    Not for beginners
    It’s impossible to learn French if every episode is him speaking only French with no translation.
  • ItsJustAdriel
    Won't let me subscribe
    I can't subscribe
  • Arei7265
    Lovely and useful :)
    I've been using this as a way to keep up and not get too rusty with my French and find myself learning words and actually understanding the language better. The format of the show is effective and to the point. Thank you for making this.
  • _thisisgood_
    A much needed refresher course
    Like most people who learned French in school(4 years ago for me) I think this podcast will boost your memory and give you a much needed refresher course on what you learned. It's even taught me a few new things.
  • LondonJay
    Need to include early episodes
    There are no episodes available earlier than 2100. I understand that these episodes build upon one another but I've just found this podcast and so coming in this late all I can find is a man speaking French without a clue of what he's saying. He doesn't explain in English what he's saying. This is not useful for the absolute beginner.
  • CKoslowArt
    Ce podcast a vraiment aidé à améliorer mon français. Il a en particulier aidé mes capacités d'écoute. Je partage l'information podcast avec mon mari, donc il est aussi un fan.
  • mamalujobenn
    Great learning tool. Thank you.
  • G.Whillikers
    Extremely helpful
    These podcasts are fun and interesting, and quickly brought my rusty college French back up to speed for trips to Paris and Montreal. I particularly love the Real Life French dialog episodes where you hear some slang and often some humor. Thank you so much, Louis!

    I Love Louis - Perfect: Exactly What I Needed
    Excellent bite-sized, intermediate level podcasts delivered by an authentic French speaker. Louis is also on twitter with additional podcasts for purchase if you want to get to know him first @louislessons. Perfect for studying pronounciation, expanding vocabulary, and more applicable to one who has studied some grammer already. A beginner might need a supplement. The text is made available on the website for a smallsubscription fee that is well worth the investment. I highly recommend it.
  • Mallabyebye
    Not for beginners
    The first 46 episodes are completely gone and you can't even download 46-50. That's as far as I tried. The latest podcasts are totally in French and you learn nothing if you're a beginner like me.
  • Frank_49
    Are Louis and his crew becoming tired? It's been nearly 2 weeks since the last podcast. I'd like to have something new.
  • Reddy Red Red
    Great for brushing up on French
    I am brushing up my very rusty French, and I find this podcast very helpful. It's a good way to learn proper pronunciation, and to amplify one's vocabulary with the synonyms he provides.
  • Wang Wawa
    this is what i was looking for!
    this is what i was looking for! very good
  • HawaiiDon
    Worthless for beginners
    Maybe it was great at the beginning but now the oldest podcasts are completely in French. How can I learn?
  • Jelyzo
    Thanks, Louis!
    These podcasts are fun, easy to follow & are really helping my vocabulary. Magnifique!
  • Zzufotaner
    Great way to keep in tact with the language everyday! C'est super!
  • bignewb
    For advanced yet rusty French speakers this is ideal for getting up to speed, especially with comprehension of spoken French. Let's face it, we can all say things, what we don't understand is the answers! This helps a lot and with TV newscasts too.
  • Ametican female
    I need to learn the song jambalaya. In French. Help
  • Fiji boss
    Isn't me it is this completely in French??? Every p.c. I have listened to is completely in French. How can I learn!?
  • Pissedoffguy3
    Looks good
    But where are the first 45 lessons? I can't start on 46.
  • ellen3141
    Wonderful podcast!
    Louis's explanations are also in French. Lots of material in this podcast.
  • Mfbrown
    Over time Louis makes the lessons more immersive; less English. Formidable!
  • @aljazeero
    En Castellano
    Si es que no puedes seguir clases en un horario fijo, este podcast es la mejor opción. Las conversaciones y situaciones son creativas y divertidas, nada que ver con las bobas conversaciones de libros de aprendizaje de idiomas. Me acabo de enterar que también están en twitter. Gracias a este podcast mis momentos de viaje o de espera en colas se vuelven altamente productivos.

    Best program I
    As an intermediate French student (US born) with no experience living in a French-speaking country, this podcast has propelled me into being able to converse in French well. I've tried a number of other courses, which clearly helped me to be ready for this podcast. I recently surprised my brother, who had lived for 2 years in France, but having a detailed half hour conversation with him in French. Advantages of this program are 1) Louis is a native speaker (this is extremely important) 2) He talks about current events and daily life, making us conversant about them 3) He gives relevant examples of word usage. Thanks for a superb program!
  • Kris24miller
    Where is one ?
    I'm sure this is wonderful if you don't have to start at lesson 800.... Where can I start from one?
  • AAGH
    Excellent learning tool
    I am a busy professional and the only way I can learn and practice the little French I know, is through this daily podcast while I commute to work. It is a great tool. Good job Louis:)
  • Ja NYC
    J'adore ça!
    Most of my friends are from Paris or Provence & the French learned in school is nothing like the French spoken on the streets. I'm A native Spanish speaker so I'm terrible @ French grammar but I'm no beginner. These pc's are perfect if you have a good ear for latin languages or took at least 1 semester of FR & want to understand the language better. Bravo!
  • Lauren A. D.
    Great listening practice
    When I first started listening, I could barely understand a word here or there. Now, I usually get most of it on the first try, and the idiomatic expressions and unfamiliar words are all explained in French so my vocabulary is a lot better. The Dictees are also excellent spelling practice!
  • an old francophile
    old advanced beginner
    I am also an advanced beginner. I took a six weeks total immersion course in France several years ago. My biggest weakness in the class was not being able to understand the language when spoken by the French instructors - even when I knew what they were suppose to be saying. I thought that I had just waited too long to develop an ear for a foreign language. However, "dailyfrenchpod" has given me hope that even at age 75 I may be able to comprehend the language as spoken by a native of France. Ironically, I could always understand my American "French" teachers. This is the course for which I have been waiting. Repitition is the answer. Thanks.
  • Mauricioarizona
    Merci... Merci.///
    I love listening to your daily podcast. I has helped me so much with my French... You make it so clear and easy to understand the language. Thank you so much
  • M. de Montcalm
    Informative Practice
    This is a great way to work a little daily French into your routine. He covers everday topics, facilitating vocabulary development in practical little tidbits.
  • fracophile
    better than French class
    I studied French in France as well as in college. These podcasts are just the thing to improve my fluency and grace with the language. I am always learning new things including lots of up to date expressions. In addition, I am getting to review things which have always been a bit murky. These podcasts are wonderful!
  • tlawler
    Thanks Louis!
    I went to school in France years ago and even picked up a degree in French but I was seeing my fluency dissolve slowly over time through disuse. Louis keeps me tuned up and up to date with new vocabulary in just 5 minutes a day. I've tried several other french podcasts but his is the one I keep - Bravo, Louis
  • skopel
    Great Podcast. The early ones are best!
    I really love this podcast. It's great for learning French as Louis says "as spoken by native French speakers". I find the early episodes most helpful. Ie before episode 500 because they average about 8 minutes in length. The later episodes average only about 5 minutes and because of that aren't nearly as fun for me.
  • ibdanseur
    i love this series. Louis is a superb teacher. the concept, structure and delivery are simplement superb! merci!
