I have been learning Spanish for a while now, these books are such a change from the standard language book of a tourist going abroad. This is about using ordinary day-to-day language. There is a very strong emphasis on learning vocabularly, focusing on words you already know and words that are very similar. Also an emphasis on speaking and making up sentences using the right grammar. These books can be used for self study or in a classroom.

These books are up-to-date as you are now encouraged to start talking as soon as possible to a native speaker or even to yourself or your pet.

for such a small inexpensive book ..i found it very useful clear and direct, learning a new language the difficulty for me is often having a structure what do you use most?..somewhere to start and then build upon this book is incredibly practical straight away..it doesn't cover everything no book can covers simple basic gramer very well..its not perfect but if youre someone who wants to pick it up and have a go..its very good easily as useful as a phrase book but giving you potential to expand into making up your own sentences slottin in new words....i only wish there were more version in other languages..found it a great study aid..

I thought this book would be perfect for an introduction to French when travelling to France for the first time. But mainly it's for building up to the next level of learning rather than helping you on a short trip. There's a lot of vocab and exercises that are completely useless for travelling, and so if you are looking for a pocket book for a quick introduction then it's probably best to get a specific guide book.

However if I was learning French seriously, this book is a nice little introduction to grammar and basic vocab. The image learning material is useful in helping you remember and the book is very cheap anyway.

French Frenzy--the Elementary School Experience 24 Sept. 2000
By Phyllis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For the past four years, I have used this book as a "textbook" for teaching beginning French conversation to elementary students in our schools. The book pairs easy-to-learn phrases with simple pictures--and does not go too deep into French grammar, which is perfect for my teaching methods. The book encourages the joy of "speaking" rather than conjugating verbs, and should not be purchased by those who need (or want) to enhance their grammar skills. But for "speaking conversational phrases" it's perfect...and the appendix, with its simplified vocabulary, is great. My husband, who knows NO French except what he "learned" from this book, survives in France very well when we take young students to Paris on a "field trip." This book is a very good way to begin learning the complicated French language.

A Few Things Missing 17 Oct. 2011
By Drew Samson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'd like to start by saying that this is not a terrible book. It covers basic phrases, words, and everyday expressions, with a bit of grammar, and (as indicated on the cover) pictures. However, here it earns a rating 3-stars since there is no pronunciation guide, and several glaring mistakes littered within. While there are very few of these, they are significant enough that I must point them out. As an example, on page 198 there are letters which are missing. The fourth sentence listed reads "e viendrai demain" where it should actually say "Je viendrai demain."

But I don't think that you should avoid this publication, if you are looking for something light, which reinforces the basics. It is a very fine book for beginners; however, it is not a starting point. It is purely supplementary, and as such you should consider this to be an addition to your collection of books or audio tapes. In the case this review has deterred you from a purchase, I then recommend the "Berlitz Self-Teacher: French."

See It and Say It in French -- The Easy Way +++ 10 Sept. 2011
By Kevin Kiersky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Like the other excellent "See It and Say It in" books for various languages -- "See It and Say It in French" is an easy way to learn the primary basics of French. This little book has several main virtues that work together to enable learning French quickly and naturally. First of all, the explanations, starting with pronunciation, are very clear. Next, the learning really is progressive -- starting with very basic French AND using English parallels as much as possible. The phrases are learned via clusters of nearly repeated models via simple substitution -- AND many of those phrases are matched precisely to model pictures. These are grouped by topic in modules and by their topic phrase exercises on facing pages -- for easiest reviewing. Because of the easy progression by topic in such natural modules -- it is also fairly easy to jump around from topic to topic -- to eventually review freely as needed or wanted. This whole pattern is very natural -- closely parallel to natural personal language learning. In addition, beyond the grammar learned on-the-side via the progressively changing phrases [matching natural personal language learning] -- the special grammar explanations [and simple grammar diagrams] are as direct and clear as the rest of this fine and fun book +++

Deceptively Simple 4 July 2008
By L. A. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like a previous reviewer, I have spent a lot of $ on various tapes, CDs and books over the years in an attempt to improve my French. Because it seemed almost too simple, this book sat on my shelf gathering dust for a long time. I just recently started to read it again and have found it does a great job in presenting vocabulary and sentence structure in a way that is easy to remember. I have photocopied the wonderful little pictures and accompanying sentences and placed them on index cards. I've found it's a great way to quiz myself.

As much as I've enjoyed the book, I don't think that on its own it would be a good way for a beginner to learn French. It might work best as a supplementary resource or for someone who has a little background in the language. The book includes only a very rudimentary pronounciation guide and doesn't often explain the grammar rules behind the sentence structures.

Overall, a very good book!
