  1. Loved, loved my first video. I watched it a few of times. I also found the audio+script+vocabulary very useful to enhance my comprehension.

    Aunque ya tengo muchos años hablando inglés, el español es mi lengua materna. Y como esperaba, encuentro muchas similaridades con el francés. Estoy muy emocionado en mi nueva aventura!

    1. Welcome Jason! It depends on our goals and how much time you can spend daily. The most time you spend daily getting input, the more you understand, the more you acquire the language. You can start small 10-15 mins a day, then increase it to 30 mins and then 1 hour a day. From 1 hour to several hours daily is optimal!

  2. I understood so much and the words. The vocabulary list helped a lot to show the spelling and for the few words I didn’t know the meaning. Thank you so much!

  3. I have been watching the YouTube videos for a while now, but honestly, they are a bit beyond my comprehension level, the other day when I see your video about creating baby steps videos I knew I was signing up. I have watched it, and honestly, it’s perfect. It’s exactly what someone at my level needs. Thank you.

  4. Bonjour Tous le monde, Hello Everyone,
    Merci Alice pour ce video, mp3 et Pdf.

    Il est tres bon que vous depensez votre temps repondre des questions.

    Je me sens il y a bon atmosphere et bon solidaire.

  5. Hello Alice,
    about a month ago I made a choice of becoming fluent in French, as I adore everything French! (I should have done it long ago…). I have began to learn French on my own from multiple online resources but always felt that I needed to find one GREAT resource that would take me from zero to fluency. I am truly happy to have found you and your style of teaching. At last, I feel that I am in good hands and that my journey will be easy and fun! Extremely exited, your new Russian Canadian fried, Natalia 🙂

  6. Je suis une Indonésienne. J’espère que je peux parler Français très bonne un jour. Je suis une débutante en j’adore beaucoup ta vidéos. Merci.

  7. Hello, found you on YouTube and glad to subscribe. I did quite a bit of research on comprehensible input and I’m convinced this is the way to learn a new language. I speak fluent English and Spanish and look forward to the addition of French. Merci Alice for bringing this method of learning to the public.

    1. Welcome to the French Learners community Claudia 🙂 I think French will be kind of easier for you to grasp because you are already fluent in English and Spanish. Those two languages will help you to understand French. Happy French acquisition!

  8. Bonjour Alice. Thank you for these lessons, I look forward to working through these, this style of learning makes so much sense to me. With the supplemental lessons that are posted, are there vocabulary lists?


    1. Merci Deborah. Yes, you will find a glossary at the end of each story. This is not a vocabulary list to memorize but rather a list of unknown words to help you understand the story better. The goal is to understand what you hear and read to acquire French naturally and painlessly.

  9. Hi Alice! I’m really glad I found your site. I’m thrilled! I just joined this afternoon and have finished the first lesson. I can already tell I’m going to get a lot out of it!

    1. Bonjour Robb, thank you very much for your kind comment. I have just sent you an email concerning the issue with your payment. In the meantime, I wish you the best in your French journey!

  10. Salut. Je suis brésilien et je suis très heureux pour rencontrer votre travaille. Je vous comprends bien et bientôt j’espère parler naturellement. Je vous remerci.

  11. Oh lala, regarde, maman alice ayel. Il y a beaucoup de histoires ici. J’adore cette histoire mais ça l’air trop facile pour moi. On y va 🙂

  12. Alice…Una pregunta …en 3 meses debo terminar todos los videos ….No entiendo mucho cómo debo organizarme. Puedes recomendarme cóomo debo hacer este curso .

    1. Alejandra, tu haces como quieres y como puedes con el tiempo que tienes.

      Puedes hacer una nueva sesión del Baby Stage cada dia o puedes hace mas sesiones diariamente o menos sesiones.
      También puedes repetir una sesión si te gusta la historia o si no has entendido todo.

      Cuando has terminado el Baby Stage puedes empezar el Infant Stage y también puedes leer y escuchar historias para principiantes

      Espero que mi respuesta te ayude.

  13. Vale muchas gracias. Entonces entiendo que todos los días puede ver un video y trabajar yo sola y cuando este en el nivel Infant Stage puedo además leer y escuchar historias para principiantes.

    Merci beaucoup,
    Bonne nuit,

  14. Someday I will be able to express in French to you Alice, of my joy and deep gratitude. You are awesome! The program you have developed works. I am so excited….Finally, I am acquiring French ! YES!!! Merci Beaucoup.

  15. Cette histoire a une place spéciale dans mon cœur. Cette histoire set me on the path, the journey d’acquérir la langue française, mon rêve ! Merci Maman Alice. Je l’écoute beaucoup de temps et je souris. It keeps me wanting for more.

  16. I have watched quite a few videos of yours on YouTube Alice! I loved this intro baby stage video. All your videos are very engaging, and I’m always excited to watch the next one. I watched this first one a few times, I’m extremely excited my language acquisition journey!

  17. Alice, Merci! You bring such an excitement to the stories and they are so fun to watch. I started watching on YouTube, but liked them so much that I joined your program. Looking forward to learning more. Á bientôt!

  18. Bonjour Alice!
    Je habite Brussels depuis august, 2022. Je suis tres content cas je peux apprendre le francaise avec vous.
    French is my fourth language after learning german which is my 3rd language.
    I happy to try different approach to learn french this time following your method.
    Merci beaucoup!!

  19. Bonjour Alice 🙂
    This is great! For me it is beneficial to finally have sentences spoken word by word slowly. I’ve picked up a bad habit of trying to pronounce words a fast as I can which, I think, only hurts rather than helps. Even though I understand quite a bit, I’m going to start my journey here from Baby-1 because the way I “learned” was to translate in my head instead of assuming another persona. I have a lot of “unlearning” to do!

    1. C’est super Ken. It is OK to want to translate at first, don’t feel bad about it because it is going to be even more frustrating for you! As you listen to more and more stories, your brain will subconsciously switch to French and the urge to translate will little by little disappear. Trust the process and ENJOY!

  20. I absolutely LOVED IT Alice! I’m amazed by the way you teach.. It’s very helpful, and the resources and material are fantastic! Best investiment EVER!
    Congratulations and thank you so much, I can’t wait to start Baby Stage 2!
