This answer was designed for an English speaker who starts from scratch; it is not focused on speech but rather on fundamentals and tools, as I find awareness of these somewhat lacking, and being exposed to random popular content and one-size-fits-all online training, overrated.
Take charge; usually a language class involves incremental lessons about grammar with some lexicon using various types of activities, such as conversation. If you have to rely heavily on the English language, make sure to first read the Wikipedia article on the French language and all linked material, notes and external links in English(see also English words with French origins, and French Literature with some reading cues.)
Getting to know the International Phonetic Alphabet and how it is leveraged in French should prove essential with pronunciation. Aside from audio content such as what you mention, you can generate audio from any word/sentence using the Google translate engine like so(simply input your words in the URL; not perfect yet useful). To understand and research the things you hear and read about, a small "tool chain" made from available references1 is useful; for example:
[ TLFi ] - Definitions & quotes from classic authors(look them
up; use Google translate to help)
[ Verb tenses tool x
y z ] - Enter whatever conjugated verb to figure out the
[ Collins ] - En-Fr /
Fr-En (see also Cambridge) - Translation with examples
[ Google Ngram
viewer ] - Generate and analyze contexts and trends in books
This edition of Jean de La Fontaine's classic fables is illustrated; this can prove challenging but that shouldn't stop anyone, as all the tools are available and questions can be asked on this very site. A beginner need not settle for easy, and could research all the words they find in one of those fables and use clues from their native language as they read, trying to grasp the gist of the sentences. Maybe printing one of these small fables, pinning it somewhere and learning it by heart could be useful. Whatever the activity, take notes for further research on topics you have a real interest in and keep track of your progress.2
1. Aside from the grammar section provided from the link, see Bonjour de France and the paper version of "Le petit Grevisse - grammaire française".
2. If you want to challenge youself with etymology and in depth grammar, maybe look for the Dictionnaire historique de la langue française, sous dir. Alain Rey, ed. Le Robert, and Le Bon Usage, Grevisse et Goosse, ed. Duculot.
