    Is there an App for this. I love the pace and explanations. I want short doses of French & whenever I have time. What’s the best way to access your programs regularly?

    This will be a God-send for me – the short bursts & the fact that I can go over it as many times as I want. Wonderful!

    I have been learning French in a Conversation Class at my Senior’s Centre, which I reinforce with the use of JeFrench. I have read many French authors translated into English and would like to understand them in the original French language.
    I find it very difficult to follow spoken French on the news and am trying to improve my understanding of spoken French.
