If you...

  • wonder if you'll ever speak fluently (even after years of study)
  • still find yourself translating from English into French
  • understand most of what French people say but not all of it
  • would like to reduce your accent and sound more like a French person

Then you should try echoing. It works because it is Nature's original language-learning method. You learned English be echoing your parents. This time, you'll echo the sounds of native French speakers. It works!

Now, since you could download French mp3s and echo them for free, why do you need us? Answer: to save you time. You cannot echo if you're thumbing through a French-English dictionary trying to decipher your transcript. And you can't even decipher the transcript if you don't have a transcript to decipher. We give you a complete transcript with an especially-adapted translation that explains to you why the original French speaker used the words she or he used. That way, instead of sitting at a desk and doing prep work, you can go to your car, pop the CD in and start working on your "French oral gymnastics."

I discovered echoing in 1995 and starting producing echoing materials in 2001. This site is where we sell these materials to other adults who have discovered echoing.

Our method is simple: find an interesting recording and learn to "echo" 2 or 3 paragraphs per week.
