      In the lessons I personally feel that it would be better if there was a longer time for us to say the sentence before anna steps in as we have to think about it first and then say it but by this time Anna has said it and you have gone to the next bit. Many thanks Roz

        Roz, u may put the “PAUSE” to think.

    • "C"

      and Roz, dont be shy to replay as many times as is helpful. I am not embarrased to say that i have listened to many CBS lessons more than 15 times, but each time that practice has helped me tremendously …

      Many thanks for reply’s – I will certainly be replaying them as many times as I need, but I am usually doing other things as I listen and am not sat at the computer to pause it..still enjoying it tremendously fact I have a French friend who is now listening to the English version to improve his English…keep it up

      On lesson 27 everytime I put on pause when I go back it has gone back to the beginning

      I appreciate the longer pause before Anna speaks. It helps. I am sitting in front of my computer but to pronounce things correctly the pause helps. Also I have a dictionary so I can spell the words that you speak. I knew French when I was in High school and when I hear most words I can visualize them which helps me. I also refer to my French dictionary when the word is new or if I want to understand more perfectly.

      Google translate is helpful for spelling and context as well, either type word or phrase in English to translate to French or vice versa for any words not known in the Coffee Break French lesson.
