Perfect for me and perhaps for you too!
I am totally in accord with the first review.

Being over 70 I have some difficulty remembering but being able to go over each article several times, with and without the CD, my French is definitely improving. I have found all the various articles interesting and the levels at which they are presented are ideal for me ('O' Level) at school + Commercial French in College (1959!) and speaking French (always) when on holiday. I get by but I know my syntax is sometimes poor and vocabulary lacking. Level 2 articles are comfortable, Level 2+ are a stretch and Level 3 are difficult but not enough to prevent me working at it. Already after only three weeks with my first magazine I feel I have made great leaps forward.

I am not connected with the magazine in any way. This review is genuine!
Thanks, Bien-Dire, I'm delighted with my purchase.

Review by Sue Davies / (Posted on 21/06/2011)
I am totally addicted to this excellent and enjoyable product!
I’m really delighted to have discovered Bien Dire. I would strongly recommend Bien Dire to everyone with a knowledge of basic French grammar and vocabulary and who wants to get a real taste of French culture and a chance to really enjoy learning more.

The articles are varied, and interesting, and the high production standards of the artwork and photos make the experience of learning a real pleasure. Most of the articles are far too short to let you get bored, and the more in-depth ones really make you feel you understand fascinating aspects of French culture and history.

After just a week of studying every day with Bien Dire, I found a noticeable difference. I was able to watch programmes on TV5, and follow many more programmes than previously.

I soon found my own way of studying Bien Dire, which is to study 2 pages a day, making notes on all new vocabulary. And the following day, I would revisit what I had learned previously, by listening to the CDs on my MP3 player. This I do on the bus or tube, during coffee-breaks, even when jogging.

I am totally addicted to this excellent and enjoyable product. Each magazine and CD represents many hour's worth of enjoyable study at my own pace, and is a magazine and audio CD I will keep for a long time. And yet each issue is half the price of an hour with a private French tutor.

For someone like me who enjoys being in France and talking in French, it feels literally life-changing. Thanks again. I must also say the staff at Language Direct have been very helpful and friendly.
