    Hello! I just love the podcasts! I’ve been traveling all around the world listening to you guys. I think now it might be the time to take a step forward. But first I would like to know if Amazon’s 4 lessons packs offer the same benefits as buying from the website. Thank you and a big hi from Brazil!

      Obrigado, Henrique! The Amazon lesson packs are made up of the lesson notes for groups of five lessons. If you buy on our site you get access to the lesson notes, bonus audio and our ‘synchronised flashcards’ which allow you to see the words and phrases on the screen of your iOS device while listening. Hope that helps.

    I love coffee break french! I found it on i tunes just a few months ago and I am totally addicted… I’ve also told all my friends about it! Mark and Ana are just great, congratulations for such an useful tool. Ps. The only downside is Ana’s mis pronunciating the words parler and soleil… Hahahaha.

    I love Mark’s personality and would love to have coffee and practice my French with him. So cheery and patient. I’m walking around cleaning my house and talking to the couch, the vacuum, the pillows… “et toi? commet t’appelle TU?” Such a great podcast. THANK YOU
