Surprising easy

For the price - you can't beat this brief first lesson. The speaker is clear and articulate and explains the words well. The only recommendation I have is to allow a longer pause or space so one can practice the words. Overall, I enjoyed and will look into other lessons.

Great Teacher

Have you listened to any of Alexa Polidoro’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I downloaded Alexa's 5 free audios and like them. At first, she may appear to be random as was noted by an earlier comment; however, her teaching makes progress. She moves a little more slowly and presents French in smaller bites, than do some other teachers. But she makes learning fun and makes her listener feel as if he/she isn't even working at learing French.

As for the previous comment about there being so much English: He's right; Lesson 1 has mostly English and little French. It's all about making the learner comfortable and to not feel intimidated by a foreign language. She goal is to take the foreign out of learning a new language. As Alexa progresses, she gradually uses more French, until there is little, or no, English.

I've completed her first four lessons and look forward to further pleasant, French learning experiences with Alexa.
