Each video features teacher Pierre Capretzs on camera instruction and utilizes his proven language-immersion method. A French family along with a visiting American gives users the opportunity to learn the French language in context and experience some of the culture as they travel, dine out, attend entertainment venues, and visit with family and friends. The videos are free of charge but can also be purchased along with other accompanying materials.
