Learn (or Teach) French in 10 minutes!
2Lingua French allows you to learn (or teach) all the expressions you need when you travel to France. No grammar. No vocabulary list. This 10-minute bilingual story (English with French expressions) takes you on a journey to Paris through language, culture and history.
INTUITIVE AND POWERFUL
Written specifically for English-speakers, this casual dialogue is meant to reinforce common expressions by recreating the natural flow between the two languages, the same way that bilingual people manipulate language.
This app will allow you to:
• place language in context
• hear French at its normal speed
• listen to French phrases at a slower pace
• learn more about French culture and history through the info box
• explore the city visually through the photo album.
If learning a language is or ever has been challenging, then this app is for you!
_ Tap the sound icon to listen to the whole story. This step allows you to hear the language at its normal pace, and to establish a context for French phrases.
_ Tap the French sentences to hear them at a slow speed. Repeat them if you wish for faster acquisition.
_ Tap the info icon to learn more about history and culture.
_ Swipe the pictures to get a virtual experience of the city.

All text and audio content is contained within the app. No internet connection required.
Great tutorial taught by someone who grew up in France and now teaches French. I especially like her humorous way of getting important points across. Important travel topics are covered immediately, so this is a great app for beginners who are planning on traveling to France. Pronunciations are clear and easy to duplicate, and spoken with a true French accent. I also like the fact that you can click on any highlighted French words and hear the phrase repeated. As this app suggests, you will be out the door, speaking useful conversational French in no time.
As a high school Spanish teacher and an avid traveler who often goes to countries where I do not speak the language, I think that 2Lingua is a brilliant tutorial for someone looking to learn the basics quickly, with humor and gorgeous photos! I enjoyed reading the story, thought the characters were well-developed and funny and know first-hand that the vocabulary presented is the vocabulary one needs in order to hit the ground running in another country.
This app has so much going for it already, and I'm sure it will continue to develop. It allows you to cross happily that dreaded threshold to learning a new language because it is attractive, practical and immediately engaging. And--best of all--it works!
