Within the first hour you will be able to construct simple sentences. By the end of the course, you will have the confidence to understand and speak basic French. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary, and complete the course in about 20-30 hours.

If you've already purchased all the hours and are using the same iTunes account you can download all the hours again for free on any of your devices. The process looks very similar to the payment process but you will not be charged again - the app recognises purchase history.

Terrible service!

After getting new phone, and having bought the course on old phone, the old app wasn’t available. After downloading this app I have lost my purchase (nearly £60!). The new app doesn’t allow me to access the course without re-paying. Sent several emails to customer support and not had a signal response to any of them!! Don’t bother buying from this company!!!

Poor useability and unstable

The app regularly crashes. The content is good but has to be downloaded in its entirety every single time I want to use it, which it will only do on wifi. Isn't linked to iOS so can't be paused from the home screen but just from within the app. Really a terrible vehicle for the quality content. Try to find another way of listening to Michel Thomas. Don't use this app.
