French Together was developed to help people speak French quickly and with confidence. It not only teaches you the basics, but also the nuances that will help you sound like a local.
A unique feature of the course is that it provides two types of dialogues: a dialogue at natural speeds, and the same dialogue at a slower speed so that learners can train their listening comprehension and gradually get accustomed to fast-speaking locals. They use a variety of narrators so that you don’t get stuck only understanding one person’s pronunciation.
The lessons are organized by level and its grammatical progression is inspired by the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). They use only the most common French vocabulary so that you can immediately apply everything you learn. There are accompanying transcripts and translations, including literal translations so that you can decode the structure of French.
From the example lessons they provide, French Together seems like a pretty effective course to help you learn to speak like a local and avoid any faux pas. The course is a one-time purchase, with the option of a solid discount if you buy all the levels at once. If you don’t like it, you have 60 days to get a full refund, no questions asked.
