For a beginner : the original interview will keep you busy for 3 months if you study 10 minutes at a time, 2 or 3 times per week. Of course, you are welcome to go faster!
For an intermediate learner : 2 months.
For an advanced learner : 2 or 3 weeks.
For all levels: see the bonus materials below. (Scroll down to see descriptions.)
After you can understand the original interview, the work on pronunciation and accent continues with the slowed-down listen and repeat recordings.

Advanatages of our transcript
- Why Dr. Granry thought there was a need for this type of training.
- La simulation procédural, la simulation "haute fidelité", and "la consultation d'annonce."
- Stress levels registered during training are as high as those seen during "real" life-saving procedures.
- Why the "patient" must never die during training.
- Why all training sessions are filmed.
- Why, even after many training sessions, there is always a "first time" on the patient.
Full translation line by line so you can match up the words with their English meaning.
Lots of footnotes to explain expressions and words that have to be "understood as a group" so that you never have to stop your listening to look words up online or in a dictionary.

Do you find yourself asking a question in a store and then cringing as the French person rattles on with a long answer of which you understand absolutely nothing?
the whole interview slowed down by 25%. Some intermediate listeners prefer to start with a slowed-down recording. Once they can "catch" all of the words in the slowed-down version, they switch back to the original interview. We have been producing these since we started publishing interviews back in 2001. Customers love them because they help beginners and intermediates "ease into" conversational French.Is your problem that French people switch into English because they get impatient waiting for you to find your words?
Then you need to take that final step to fluency. You need to learn the patterns, the "oral gymnastics" of spoken French so that the words just roll off of your tongue. Bonus #2:
the slowed-down listen and repeat recordings. These are amazing for advanced or already-fluent speakers who want to take that final step to fluency. Here, you'll...
Worried about not having the time or giving up in a few months?
- learn the patterns of spoken French by actually making the sounds as you follow the model of native speakers.
- make your pronunciation consistent (a big problem for adult French learners - even when they "know" the word, they only pronounce it correctly half of the time. These recordings will help you solve that problem.)
- learn the French mouth position so that you sound more like a native. These recordings are just slow enough to let you hear and practice the positioning of your tongue and lips but just fast enough so that you never get bored. (So that you know how to use them, we've included a nice tutorial recording. You'll know exactly how to use these exercises to learn the "French Mouth Position.")
in the tutorial recording, "Learning French from interviews," you'll learn my 4-step method for making measurable progress in as little as 10 minutes per day, 2 or 3 days per week. What's best about this method? Answer number 1: It's actually fun and never boring. No more poring over grammar exercises! Answer number 2: you can use it in the car or while walking or exercising. So even if you are too busy to sit down, you can still make measurable progress in sessions of as little as 10 minutes at a time. This is the method I use to learn German in my car on the way to and from work. If you are busy or have had problems stopping and starting French over the years, this method is for you.
