The revolutionary idea behind SmartFrench is placing comprehension first and foremost--before speaking. Using our unique Active Sensory Comprehension (TM) method, students learn their new language both effectively and efficiently.
The SmartFrench Audio CDs Intermediate/Advanced is addressed to the intermediate student who wants to improve his or her understanding of French. If you know French a little bit but you can t understand it at all when spoken, you might want to start with our Beginner level. ---- The difference between the audio CDs and the CDROM - also available on amazon.co.uk, is that the CDs can be played in your car. The CDROM contains all three levels and some extras, as well as the videos of the interviews on which the lessons are based, but it is only for the computer (Windows and Mac).
I have a bookshelf full of French language learning tools (books, CD's, flashcards), and they seem useless now that I am using SmartFrench... It's unbelievable that this simple, easy approach has never been done before. I'm glad someone finally did it! Some of the most successful, useful inventions become obvious to the rest of us after someone comes up with the idea, and we smack our foreheads with the palm of our hands thinking: Why didn't I think of that? It's so obvious! SmartFrench is like that. --Music Critic, Belmont, MA USA
