Coffee Break French is the flagship French course of the Radio Lingua Network and has been running since September 2007. Now in its third season, the regular lessons are available in podcast format in iTunes and are accompanied by lesson guides. For the first time these lesson guides are available in the iBookstore in ePub format.
Part 1 of Season 3 features five audio lessons with over two and a half hours of audio content and comprehensive lesson notes for each lesson. Follow the stories of American student Katie, Australian business woman Veronica and retired teacher Alf from the UK as they learn French in the town of Nice on the Riviera.
In each episode learners can study the texts written by our characters and teacher Mark will explain all the important language points both in audio format and in the written notes which accompany the lessons.
In part 1 topics covered include the position of adverbs in the perfect tense; verbs governed by certain prepositions; an introduction to the future tense; the French school system; the preceding direct object rule; and much more.
This is part 1 of 8. Subsequent parts will be made available as episodes are released. Please visit the Radio Lingua website http://radiolingua.com for more information.

After the beginner lessons (which I enjoyed) I couldn’t tell if I was being taught how to speak English with a Scottish accent, or French … Honestly, it seems that Mark starts speaking MORE English during the intermediate lessons. I understand, and agree with, using a native language at the BEGINNING of language learning; however, using more English than French at the intermediate stage is just ridiculous. At the intermediate level I recommend something like News In Slow French, or any resource that uses more French than this program does.
Might as well throw in the question of value too. I enjoyed the previous seasons quite a lot, so was willing to pay for season 3 on iTunes. But it’s quite expensive considering the content, and there are much better programs online at considerably lower costs.
