5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource 2 May 2011
By manxie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been listening to the CD's in the car as they can be used independently from the book and they are very easy to use and listen to. Then I look at book when I get chance. Very pleased with this as an absolute beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for small group classes 28 July 2010
I use this book for small classes of adults and it's fantastic. It starts with easy language for complete beginners, and builds up - but even at the end it's still pretty simple. All the topics covered are useful. It's good value too.

There's no grammar overload: it's all about listening and talking, so good for travellers, and for people who just want to have fun with their language learning. (Not likely to be great if you're taking it seriously and thinking about exams in future).

The CD is useful too and the website has some good stuff although it's not always obviously linked to the same 'curriculum' as the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Learning 25 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book and CD are used in my french lessons so great to review what I did in class. Easy listening for pronunciation and hands on writing and reading in the booklet.

3.0 out of 5 stars simple and easy to use 14 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot say anything bad about the book or the CDs themselves. It was also delivered on time and came well packaged.
Why only 3 stars?: The lessons move on very slowly, which is nice for a total beginner or people who just need basics and aren't very confident at learning a new language. However, I feel like its a bit slow and simple for me, even though I am a complete beginner. If you quickly grasp a subject, you might wanne get something a bit more intensive. Also, every single audio lesson gets introduced with a strange 90s style melody which quickly goes on your nerves, but thats a minor problem.
Overall it's still a good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did the trick 11 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My partner is struggling with learning Frenchfor his job, so gave him this as an early Christmas present. Although it is material he already knows, the little bite size chunks have given him the chance to practice and repeat and his French has certainly improved. He would give it 5 stars, I know. It is presented in an unintimidating way and covers useful material for tourists to France. I am not sure how a total beginner would get on, but for a learn at home programme, I think it is very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars a bit basic 25 Oct 2011
By katdes
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book really is for beginners with simple introductions and phrases, for this its is ok, although i think it could explain things a bit better- for me its too basic- but for total beginners i can see it as a useful aide.

If you after something post beginners I recommend French talk 2
