Personally, I think Francais Authentique really is a great way to learn authentic French. While I do have some qualms about the lack of speaking and writing, the content will almost certainly help take intermediate learners to the next level, provided they put the time in.
For French learners looking to see whether this approach suits their learning needs, head to the Francais Authentique website and sign up for a week-long free trial. Some people will love it, others may find it too repetitive. It contains five lessons which have a number of sections to them. All of the different parts of each lesson are based on the principal audio file.
In total, there is 4. This is because repetition features heavily in them. The guideline Johan provides is very useful and it highlights how best to get the most out of the material. In these lessons, the audio is slightly slow paced and this picks up to almost a natural speed in the next pack. There are 17 hours of audio and pages of text. There are 16 lessons in total with the usual sections as mentioned above and there are also three audio files on how to improve your comprehension, your pronunciation and how to express yourself more clearly.
Johan does think about how to motivate and support learners and that shines through in the guideline he includes. This time, the pack diverts slightly from the norm as it also includes just under four hours of videos which show daily life scenarios between Johan and his friend.
There are In total there are 15 different lessons based on real-life scenarios and conversations. These also focus on helping you learn French. It includes three hours of video, three hours of audio and pages of text. You can sign up to say that you are interested in receiving it when it becomes available. This has all of the lessons, audio files, PDFs and videos mentioned above and costs euros. That means that are are 36 hours of audio lessons, just under four hours of video lessons and pages of text.
Like all of the packs available, this also comes with a one month guarantee so if you decide that they are not for you, you can simply ask Johan to be reimbursed and he will do so promptly. Repetition features heavily and while it is awesome that absolutely everything is in French, not everyone will enjoy listening to the same lesson ten — thirty times as Johan recommends. That said the content is great, it really is real-life French as used every day in France and you will certainly get an authentic and well thought out product.
Johan clearly cares about it and each pack has a PDF accompanying it that outlines how you can motivate yourself, how to plan your time and how to get the most out of the course. Already in Pack 2, the pace of the conversations is pretty much at a normal speed that native speakers would use.
As well as the course itself, Johan has an active blog, an app for your phone and Podcast series which could be interesting avenues for French language learners. As he is interested in looking at what motivates people to learn languages and the ways in which they can do so, there are also a couple of motivational and personal development books on offer through the website.
This is authentic French as used by millions of people every day. Johan has created a great product in Francais Authentique which will immerse you in the language and he has really thought long and hard about how all the different sections of each lesson fit together. While some people will not be too enthused by the amount of repetition that this type of course requires, others will enjoy the format.
What is certain is that you will definitely improve through these lessons if you put the effort in and, as you will only be hearing French all the time, you will become more accustomed and used to the language.
At euros I think the combination of the three packs will help take intermediate learners to the next level and if they put in the time, I could see them soon becoming advanced learners and on their way to being fluent.
