Using News in Slow French has been an incredible experience for me. After just a couple of months, I am amazed to find that I can actually understand what Catherine, Julie, and Rylan are saying. Not 100% of the time yet, but I am definitely improving all the time. I try to spend time with News in Slow French every day, and my progress has been significant! Thank you!
