4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy 12 Jan 2012
By J
I've just borrowed this from the library. The music in the background and the repitition of words and phrases makes it very catchy and easy to remember. I've had the phrases in my head all day.

It's good if you just want to learn words and phrases for holidays etc but if you want to actually have a conversation in French, I think a more advanced product would be more beneficial.

Earworms Vol. 1 audio is the most basic instruction. It's very, very repetitive indeed. And it is with extremely little actually content indeed. This was really suprising, the audio files are not really short - they go on - but have very few phrases indeed.

And it is to electro disco music (or lounge like house music), rather than relaxing, inspiring sounds to invoke feelings, and later, memories.

Pretty awful. (I'm a huge house music fan, and some of the tracks I'd really like without the language going on. But it's the last music I'd choose as a background to ease learning.)

I'm not a beginner at French, but haven't studied or spoken much for a long time.

As well as more intermediate French learning, I think I would benefit a lot from hearing, reading, writing, using the basics again. A few years of French tuition which make the basics and a bit more of just getting by in French, is actually a lot. And when you try to come back to it there's so much you won't remember, and probably need a lot of sources to aid you recap.

Language with music I thought would be better than without. I have some CDs for beginners and after, which are better than this. You need to hear the language, probably, whether you've known it or never heard it.

Earworms Vol. 1 I think would be OK for very young children to become familiar with some sounds of French, then being helped read and write the words.

But for that, you might like it for a time, and then come back. Some might, rarely, even play it 3 times in total (absolute beginners who aren't young children, but I think the track is conning you here - you should be going faster when you don't realise).

Is that what you want for 15, very little content worth a couple of listens?

I bought this and Volume 2 for my husband. He was thrilled with it. We have now put it on his MP3 player, which comes in very handy.
