Our subscribers say:

I wanted to say how great news in slow french is. I've been struggling for years to learn french and I'm still struggling to speak! I've tried different programs and while they were all ok, nothing is as good as news in slow french. Before I would download the weekly podcast and listen and 50% of the time zone out because I didn't understand half of it. Since signing up for a subscription and viewing the complete transcript of the conversations, it makes such a difference. It is so worth it. Reading the transcripts forces you to focus and you're not missing words. It really improves your vocabulary learning new words and structures of sentences. Listening to it over and over and reading the transcript at the same time really works.

The dialogues are very entertaining and I'm enjoying it a lot. Highly recommend.
