What's the difference between the free podcasts and paid course?
We offer free content in the form of audio podcasts for each of the seasons of Coffee Break French. In the audio podcasts you’ll be able to build your understanding of French and hear how words are pronounced. However, there’s no guidance on how the words are written. This is where the online course comes in. The course offers additional materials:
- full versions of each audio lesson;
- a video version of the lesson which allows you to see the “words on the screen” as you listen*;
- bonus audio content allowing you to consolidate your learning futher;
- lesson notes for Seasons 1-3 and transcripts for Season 4 and En Route.
If you’re serious about learning French we would suggest that you consider the online course to help you make faster progress with the lessons and build a deeper understanding of the language.
*Please note that the video lessons currently feature only in Season 1 and 2 courses. We plan to add video versions of the Season 3 and 4 lessons soon.
