Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This series is excellent for taking the learner through from beginning French to quite a high level of fluency is speaking and ease and speed of comprehension. All the topics are well chosen though some seem allied to a particular city. The grammar is secondary to reading and listening but is perfectly adequate. I found the key words and phrases helpful and well-chosen. The tapes are good but there is too much English on them and too many repetitions of quite simple instructions concerning which exercise to do next. But you do finish by speaking and understanding the language with confidence - and it leads on seamlessly to Breakthrough French 3 which I find excellent (and have reviewed in detail as I find it preferable to the Michel Thomas series - and cheaper.) I like to have a book to check on something I have not absorbed fully and/or do some written exercises.

Generally, this course is quite good, but it is best used when it forms the centrepiece of a proper french class; it depends quite heavily on authentic conversations from native speakers, and some of them are spoken very fast with a lot of "distortion" due to local dialect. However, there are several exercises that have no associated transcripts (although they do have answers to questions about the conversation in the exercise). This can be extremely annoying if you are trying to use the book independently by yourself.

I bought the cds separately, mistakenly thinking the book was included.As another reviewer said, it isn't ideal to have the book without the audio material and I don't think I am alone in finding the way the course is advertised to be a bit confusing,not to say expensive!!
Now I am going to have to buy the book separately and pay more than I would otherwise have done for a ' package. '

Breakthrough French books and cd's by Stephanie Ryback always excellent, featuring recordings by real French people speaking at their normal speed, really useful when you're trying to understand spoken French.

I really enjoyed working with book 1 but book 2 seems a big step up. It is interesting and varied. I ordered the CDs too and they are really needed for home study.The insights into French culture are good.

The book is in good condition, arrived in good time and is exactly as described,it's a good learning aid in a good format. Listening to authentic French conversations is interesting and much better than litening to a word at a time.
