    Please respond to my emails. I have already paid for all of the content but cannot download it. The error message says 'bad server response code 500'. I have tried selecting restore purchases but this does not work either and generates the same error. I have emailed your support email address but have had no response. Please resolve this.

  • Exhilarating & Immaculate Language Learning Experience

    By Sam the Linguist
    I'm a professional linguist and my passion for perfecting languages is a lifetime obsession. I've always found French to be very difficult, especially to speak and understand. Very slight lip alteration can change the meaning from 'Vous' to 'Vu' from 'eau' to 'eu' or 'chevaux' and 'cheveux' or even 'agneau' and 'oignon'. Based on the aforementioned and more than 7 years of teaching experience, I can only bow with reverence to Michel Thomas. I'd like to correct everyone who might claim that his method is based on repetition or passive exposure. On the contrary! There have been many times during his podcasts that I had to pause, take a break, assimilate the information, watch a movie, before I run back to him with an insatiable desire to learn. We all learn French, but we suffer and stumble while talking; we feel shivers running down our spines upon talking to a native French. Mr. Thomas's teaching pedagogy is based on breaking down any language into its core components until he possesses it completely. He then endeavours to share his knowledge with you by laying all the cornerstones, pillars and foundations and lodging the information in your brain's long term memory. Not only did I thoroughly enjoyed my learning journey with him, but I also recommend that everyone else embark on this journey and take as much as one can, no matter what his or her level in French might be. He cleared many confusions and subtleties that were overrunning my brain regarding French, although it would have been great if he had taught the imperative tense, but he probably didn't plan it out. My favourite parts were: 'the direct and indirect objects, the use of handles, the transition to the past imperfect tense- the future tense- and the implicit conjugations' It's worth mentioning that he NEVER EVER uses the terminologies I mentioned above, but he teaches them implicitly utilising an inductive and inference method. I recommend his French course wholeheartedly as a personal objective for 2017. Many people have complained about restoring previous purchases and I would be too in the future if that's true. I found only one mistake in the entire course which is in the Flash Cards. 'Address' should have been spelled as 'Adresse' in French.
  • Poor useability and unstable

    By BrigadierAramis
    The app regularly crashes. The content is good but has to be downloaded in its entirety every single time I want to use it, which it will only do on wifi. Isn't linked to iOS so can't be paused from the home screen but just from within the app. Really a terrible vehicle for the quality content. Try to find another way of listening to Michel Thomas. Don't use this app.
  • Great content... Awful app

    By Alex Lawford
    The app is slow and crashes all the time. Pity because that content is great. These should be sold as audio in the iTunes Store, not have a standalone buggy app.
  • 1,000 STARS!

    By A video creator
    This app is absolutely perfect! I have always wanted to learn French outside of school and this is by far the best method I have found. I have now completed all five levels and I do not regret my decision to buy this app. The atmosphere and environment is so friendly and enjoyable...at such a bargain! Usually, you'll find language software at £700 but this, for only £30, is incredible! This is an amazing app, learn French with this!
  • Broken

    By SevilleTourist
    I've written via the website. These apps are not working (at least not on my iPhone 4...they previously worked fine). I've downloaded two Michel Thomas apps recently and neither will play. I've paid for one hour of Dutch and can't use it. Please respond.
