French Tutorials Index: Basic Phrases, Vocabulary, Grammar, and Pronunciation with MP3s and Exercises Useful 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 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.
