Transcripts for French in Action

[deactivated user]

    I don't know if anyone has ever posted this before. I really learned a lot from watching French in Action (available on you tube) and I thought it might be useful for other people who are learning French to be able to read the transcripts. These are meant to be used as teachers' aides but it's nice to be able to read the transcript if there is something you couldn't understand in the episode. I recommend that you just listen to the episode first (maybe even more than once) to try and understand on your own before reading the transcript. These were made in the 80's and the story gets a bit weird at the end, but you can still learn a lot from them.

    The course materials are expensive, but all of the components of the French in Action course, including textbook, workbook, study guide, and audio recordings can be purchased from Yale here:

    Unfortunately I forget where I found it, think perhaps on some page from asia discovered through googling, but I have a pdf of the transcripts for all 54 episodes. Also found somewhere a teacher's guide which provides extensive instructions for each episode. It can be overwhelming for casual self-study, but it does provide some clues to what they're attempting to convey each episode. Thing is, since I downloaded these I mostly stopped watching French in Action, because trying to familiarize myself with and comprehend the lesson plans became a lot more work than just watching the videos.
