    Hello,

    If I were to purchase the packages, am I able to download on to my smart phone and a tablet or is it just one download?

    Many thanks,

    Hello,
    I love your podcast! A few years ago I downloaded lessons 1-20 for Coffee break French. But now a few years later I would like to reload them and I can’t find them to reload. Are they in the Apple music? And if I go to your website, it says download podcast but I don’t see where it’s going to download, so I don’t know what app to use to play it.. I would like to listen to it in the car.
    Thanks for a great series!

    I listen this program, but Anna here is a bit annoying, cus she takes too much time sometimes when she is asked to repeat the teacher. Often time i had to check if my phone is stopped, then the teacher calls her again and ask to repeat again.

      Thanks for your comment. The reason for this is – as we explain in the lessons – that Anna waits for listeners to repeat before repeating herself. Hope that explains it!

    My wife and I are keen to refresh and learn better French with a view to living in France. We both have ‘A’ level French although from some 40 years ago, and my wife did business French also. We have holidayed from time to time in France but realise we would need to be reasonably capable to live in the country.

    Which level would you recommend we start at?

    Thank you

    Bill

      Sorry for the slow reply, Bill. We’d suggest you consider Season 3 which would suit your needs. Have a listen to the audio lessons here: http://radiolingua.com/tag/cbf-season-3/ and you can see if it’s the kind of thing you’re looking for. If you’re ready to buy, you can visit our purchase page or buy seasons 3 and 4 in a bundle. Hope that helps.
