Coffee Break French (and Nine Other Ways to Parler Français)

Although fac­ing no short­age of com­pe­ti­tion, Cof­fee Break Span­ish (iTunesFeedWeb Site) has remained the most pop­u­lar for­eign lan­guage les­son pod­cast, bar none. The pop­u­lar­i­ty rank­ings on iTunes have con­tin­u­al­ly attest­ed to that.

From this posi­tion of strength, the pro­duc­ers of Cof­fee Break Span­ish have smart­ly moved into new Euro­pean ter­ri­to­ries, rolling out ear­li­er this year MyDai­lyPhrase Ital­ian (iTunesFeedWeb Site) and MyDai­lyPhrase Ger­man (iTunesFeedWeb Site). Now they will be fac­ing a stiffer chal­lenge – try­ing to pen­e­trate the already-crowd­ed French lan­guage les­son mar­ket.

Cof­fee Break French (iTunesFeedWeb Site) was launched on Sep­tem­ber 26, and how it fares against the com­pe­ti­tion (see our list below) depends main­ly on whether the pod­cast deliv­ers French lessons bet­ter than the oth­ers, and whether it can cap­i­tal­ize on the estab­lished “Cof­fee Break” brand. Stay tuned. All of this remains TBD. Let’s sit back and watch how things unfold.

    Re: Cof­fee Break French — les­son 36
    Can any­one tell me the name of the town in France that Mark speaks of. In les­son 36 he talks about a place which orig­i­nat­ed the tart/quiche plate that divides pieces equal­ly.
    It sounds like he is say­ing Bournique or Borneque or some­thing sim­il­iar (I think he says it is close to Ste. Marie)but I am unable to find it.
    Any advice great­ly appre­ci­at­ed. Thanks Bren­da
