4.0 out of 5 stars French for adult post beginners 1 May 2009
Format:Paperback
This French course for post-beginner adults is comprehensive both in topics and grammatical structures for adult learners at this stage. The recordings are clear and accessible, the dialogues varied and amusing, the grammar well-explained and there is a wealth of practice material.

One criticism: the dialogues in the course book are not numbered and therefore not always easily found on the CD

4.0 out of 5 stars Facon de Parler 2: Complete Pack 3 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We bought the complete pack with the Cd as well as book, for French at night school. We have moved up a level from beginners and our tutor uses this book in class.
The Cd clarity is fine and the book is reasonably clear, and covers a very wide range of topics. I would like to say its easy to understand, but my poor level of .French prevents me from saying that. Actually it is well laid out, is easy to follow and can be worked at in small chunks if you wish.
We are very pleased with the book and CD, and buying together at Amazon was good value. As well as cheaper that WH Smith etc, it was quick delivery, and Smiths would not even hazard a guess when we would receive a copy.

Format:Paperback
This is an easy-to-follow course and very well suited to anyone wishing to brush up long-forgotten French! Not for a total beginner.

3.0 out of 5 stars this is ok 3 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
Not as contrived as Breakthrough French but I feel the recordings have been scripted. Prefer the BBC French Experience for layout of the book and for the subjects covered and the recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars beaucoup de conversation en français clair 8 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book primarily for the CD's and the clear pronunciation. If you can't figure these out, then you'll have to accept that in your efforts at learning French, all is probably lost. One of the irritating things, though, is that the CD tracks are not referenced in the textbook, but maybe that's a deliberate ploy to make you go through the book to find where the corresponding text is to be found. There are some recordings that appear not to be included in the text book at all, until you realise that they are in the small accompanying Support Book. Another little test. Voila! Overall though, this series est très formidable!

I have found this book very frustrating and difficult. There is comparably little English, this necessitates constant use of a dictionary. Read more
