We have had MANY requests to review LoMasTV as a French learning program- and I must say that this review is long overdue. We have spent some time looking through their materials, and we are pleasantly surprised at the strides that his program has made.

During it’s original inception, they were built on a slightly older platform for website design, and they didn’t have nearly as much content as they currently do. The reason this is important is because their site is now JAM-PACKED with excellent quality instructional videos, and it is not coded in HTML5. For you “non-techies” out there, this is important because you watch the videos with the translations and transcripts on your iPhone/iPad devices.

Now, on to their videos. They have hundreds of high quality videos ranging from music and interviews to news broadcasts and novela clips to help you get a well rounded exposure to the French language. They are even sorted by difficulty so that as your skills improve you can continue to push yourself in the right direction.

To give you a better idea of their content, we thought we’d just add some free samples from their site so that you can see for yourself. Please watch the videos below and keep in mind that you can click on any word and see a dictionary reference of it during the video. This is incredibly helpful! See below:

Fanny & Corrine parlent de la mode – Tendances du printemps

Voyage dans Paris – La Tour Eiffel

Le Journal – Chocolats

Melissa Mars – Mozart, L’opéra rock

With plans allowing you to pay less than $2.00 per week (billed annually), you simply can’t find a better tool than LoMasTV to help evolve your French abilities.


Rocket French is made by the same company that made Rocket Spanish and Rocket German. Their teaching techniques are highly effective. Below is an excerpt from their site:

I designed Rocket French Premium to be the easiest to follow system for learning how to speak French available. Rocket French Premium is an interactive course that makes you want to study. Also, it’s practical. You’ll discover exactly what to say in virtually all situations.

With Rocket French Premium, you are going to learn French rapidly, effectively, and easily. You are going to be able to speak at a restaurant, at an airport, with new friends… in basically every situation you can think of!

I am passionate about my native language, and for me it’s a privilege to be able to share it with you. It’s an incredible experience to be able to speak with others in a different language. You will be able to enter into a different culture, a different world! Being bilingual is a very special ability, and it’s a gift that we want to give to you.

Surefire French is made by the same company that made Surefire German and Spanish. Below is an excerpt from their site:

What if you could make learning French fun, fast, and easy?

Yep, that’s right… No matter how much you suffer, struggle and strain to get your mind around the most basic understanding of the French language…

YOU can quickly and easily learn French, while you actually enjoy the process—in just minutes a day!

Lemme guess… You’re skeptical, right?

Good.  Because I’m going to give you three darn-good reasons—right now—why you’re just minutes away from making French a total breeze for you.  I’ll reveal…

  1. How to instantly imprint your memory with the 1,000 most commonly-used French words. And why these 1,000 words will get you through almost any French conversation you’ll ever encounter.  Focusing your time on these “top 1,000,” slashes your learning curve to the bare-bones minimum!
  2. Two fun and easy games that burn the top 1,000 French words into your long-term memory. Based on two learning techniques proven to supercharge your memory and recall: repetition and fun. Turns learning French into childs play!
  3. How to use mental pictures (your brain’s natural method of learning) to cement new French translations into your mind for good. Plus, 119 “Link Word” translations.  Once your brain links each word with the mental picture provided, it’s actually difficult to shake them out of your memory!

Easy French is made by the same company that made Easy German. Below is an excerpt from their site:

When it comes to learning a new language, there are two types of people.

The first type struggle for years before they can spit out a few coherent sentences… while the second take to a new language with ease, as if they’ve been exposed to it for years. Now, here’s where the secret comes into play.

You see, most think the folks who take on a new language in a snap are super-fast learners with some kind of “linguistic talent.” But the truth is that talents have very little to do with how well your brain grabs onto a new language!

The real secret to learning a new language lies in… Knowing What To Say At The Right Time!
