French Language Tutorial 2nd edition is now available! The updated edition of FLT includes more vocabulary, sample sentences, and cultural information as well as newly recorded (and free) mp3s. The PDF e-book is available for immediate download for $14.95 USD. A paperback coil-bound book can be printed on demand and shipped world-wide by Lulu.com for $29.95 USD + shipping. You will receive the e-book for free with purchase of the paperback. Please visit the Store for more information.
Recordings of mp3s were done by a native speaker of French from Haute-Savoie. Feel free to download them for your own personal use or in other non-commercial educational settings. I encourage French teachers to use them in classes too! If you use Mozilla Firefox, I highly recommend the DownThemAll add-on to make downloading much faster and easier.
For the vocabulary lists, I am making audio flashcards [French to English and English to French] with a flash mp3 player in each "card" so you can listen to the pronunciation of the words as you study. The flashcards will open in a new window and you simply click => to go on to the next set of flashcards or to continue on to the exercises.
The exercises can be matching, multiple choice or fill in the blank and they will also open in a new window.
After certain sections, the Real French icon will direct you to accompanying audio files to help you improve your comprehension of spoken French with the French Listening Resources mp3s and exercises.
I am slowly changing over the pronunciation guides to standard International Phonetic Alphabet symbols, but Internet Explorer has some spacing issues with the symbols. I recommend using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to view this site.
