Product Description

Synopsis

This title is available in book and CD. All Assimil courses are based on intuitive assimilations[registered], an original principle that is simple yet highly effective. Assimil has taken this natural process, through which you learned to speak your own language, and adapted it to their book and audio courses. Working progressively, with natural, lively dialogues, simple text notes and exercises, you will progress steadily to a level where you are able to converse in everyday situations. The first part of the course is the passive phase: you immerse yourself in the language by reading and repeating each lesson. During the second, the active phase, you use the structures and reflexes you have already absorbed while continuing to advance and learn. In just a few months, you will be able to speak French easily, fluently and naturally.

I would totally recommend Assimil products for anyone keen to learn a foreign language quickly.
However, you must be fully committed and be ready to dedicate your time for study every day!
It doesn't have to be much but you have to do it every day so you can pick up vocabulary and grammar easily.
Having learned two other foreign languages, I have found this course very practical and easy to follow.
And more importantly, I could focus my sole attention on the language rather than on problems that a fellow course mates would come across if I was to take up French through a language school.

May I start by saying I already have the Assimil Spanish Course in MP3 and it works brilliantly. The French course didn't start well (A bit like real life I suppose) Sorry I digress. Firstly my i tunes didn't recognise the mp3 disc. When I eventually managed to copy the disk to I tunes the tracks were not in the correct order.I've since cobbled together the playlist and am working through the course. The audio readings are not as well spaced as the Spanish course which has a slight pause after each sentence, giving you a moment to reflect on what you had heard and have a quick glance at the English translation.So I may well buy the audio CD's and try them.
Foolishly I also purchased a 12month usage of the e course. Don't waste your money the book and CD is by far the better option. And don't try to contact the help line. When I rang them no-one could or would speak English. You'd think they would give free course to their employees, wouldn't you.
Having read this again it seems more like a moan.But I rate this course a 4 out of five and would highly recommend it. It is a pleasurable way to learn a language.

Excellent course 7 Sept. 2013
By N. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Assimil is one of the better examples of how much the student's results depend on how well the teaching method is suited to them. These courses require you to do a lot of work on your own to benefit. The instructions, which are not laid out clearly in the French edition, are pasted below (I got this from the Dutch version). Basically there is a "Passive wave" where you (actively!) listen to the dialogues up to about lesson 70 or so, and then you start doing two lessons per day, moving forward from the halfway point in a passive wave way, and starting back at the beginning in an active wave way. (see below for clarification). This requires a lot of work and motivation on the part of the student, and if you are someone who needs more motivation or structure, you're better off with the FSI courses. Bonne chance!

Passive Wave

1. Listen to the text with the book closed.
2. Listen to the recording while looking at the English translation.
3. Read the Target Language (TL) text aloud. Be sure you understand the meaning
of each sentence.
4. Now read the TL text without looking at the translation.
5. Listen to the recording twice, once while looking at the English translation,
and once while looking at the TL text.
6. Listen to the recording with the book closed. At this point you should
understand what is being said
7.Listen to the recording once more. Stop the machine after each sentence, and
try to repeat it aloud.
8. Carefully read the comments several times. Examine the English sentences being
explained.
9. Read the exercises. Repeat each sentence several times.
10. Examine the examples of sentence structure.

Active Wave

1. Read the lesson, the listen to the recordings.
2. Cover the TL text and try to reconstruct it, looking only at the English sentences.
Make an effort to do this both orally and in writing.
3. Uncover the TL text and correct any errors you have made.

Assimil is Excellent, but there is a possibility MP3 may not take it 28 Sept. 2010
By Jay H. Colborn - Published on Amazon.com
All Assimil is excellent, but they have watered it down a lot since I got the basic French course (tapes) in the 80's.
