A great supplement to other courses,
This review is from: Colloquial French: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series) (Paperback)
I have done the Michel Thomas 8 hour language course and loved it. It takes you from a very basic level to feeling really quite confident pretty quickly. However it does have holes which I feel this course filled quite nicely.
I was in France for 3 weeks recently and found that there were a lot of slang sayings that people use, (as we do), which I just couldnt understand. I was able to ask for stuff and converse reasonably confidently after the MT course and so people assumed, (Wrongly), that I would be able to converse easily. My favourite saying was "Could you please speak slower as my french is very poor".
This course is spoken using the same language that you will hear every day in France and I feel that it has helped me enormously. A definate great buy!
