Can I Learn While I'm Sleeping?

Does subliminal learning work? I'm at an intermediate level of french but since I'm leaving for France in a month I want to speed up the process a bit. I already do a lot of work (listening to RFI while I work, speaking whenever possible etc) but I figure if listening to podcasts while I sleep would help too then why not?

I've always thought that subliminal learning in one's sleep doesnt work and that its just a gimmick (in fact when I tried to search for this on google all of my results were trying to sell me hypnosis CDs) but I thought maybe the AskMefi community might know a thing or two about this. So tell me, will I be wasting my iPod's battery by listening to French in my sleep?
