Coucou les French learners,
Kiyan joined us yesterday. After watching the first session of our Baby Stage self-paced course, he commented:
I am not beginner but I still can not listen French clearly. For me it’s too fast. And my pronounciation is bad. So I want to restart learning French the natural way to absorb it. This method for me is more comfortable.
