Cannot recommend Coffee Break French enough. I’ve taken many French classes from middle school through college (including classes in France), and Mark and Pierre-Benoit have been the best teachers. I’ve struggled with so many grammar points that I now understand thanks to these two. Personally, I do appreciate that the podcast spends a lot of time on grammar. Vocab is easy to pickup on your own time, but French grammar can be really tricky! The stories could be a bit more interesting, but the quality of the teaching totally makes up for it. I tell all of my friends who are learning French to give it a listen.
It would be cool if the podcast did an episode or two on the French spoken in other parts of the world. For instance, I know that québécois French isn’t uh traditional, but it is typically the French that we North Americans encounter the most!
