My language history: Studied GCSE French 20 years ago. A few evening French courses 10 years ago while at university. Visited France a few times in recent years and could barely pluck up the courage to converse in French unless gripping a phrasebook! Am moving to Montreal for a year so wish to bring my level of spoken French up to 'conversational'.

I'm only on CD 4 but these have been absolutely brilliant, a really refreshing way to learn. I have a 30-40 minute drive to work and this has worked out perfectly as it can sometimes be difficult to make time once I'm home.

I've had to put aside the purist instinct in me to write up verb tables to learn by rote, however, the emphasis of this course is getting you to speak (a lot!) and think logically about structuring sentences in everyday situations. From the very first CD you are speaking the language as the CDs are extremely immersive and interactive. You are reminded that it's ok if you don't remember everything as you go along as rules and examples are revisited regularly.

Overall it seems to be a really good way to immerse yourself and more importantly speak out loud in French. I feel I've learned a lot in a short space of time and most importantly am genuinely excited to actually speak some of the language in the 'real world'!

After using the Michel Thomas beginners French CD I was fired up to learn more so moved on to the more advanced CD only to come crashing back to earth when it simply listed phrases by rote and at such a pace I was dumbfounded. I returned that disc and decided to purchase the Paul Noble complete course. It's great value for money so I thought it was worth the risk but it's all I've listened to in the car since it arrived. With a native French speaker to express each phrase my little misdemeanours in pronunciation are being constantly pulled back into line which is great. As each lesson is broken down into short sessions, when I've struggled to understand a phrase I can simply flick the CD back a few sessions to recap until it clicks with me. I'm thrilled with the course and after only 2 days of use when driving to and from meetings I can see an understanding beginning to take shape. I'm so excited to think that this language that I was never able to master after 2years of school lessons is within my reach after all. My only problem now is holding off ordering Spanish, German and Italian until I've finished the French. Its my ambition to be multilingual by the end of this year and at this rate there's every chance that will happen.

We have a second home in france and we can get by on our knowledge of French but poor putting proper sentences together. I am only on cd 2 and taught me so so much I can't wait to use it and I can remember it ( just) !

I have learnt more French in the first few weeks with the audio book, then I have managed in a French speaking country for 3 years (including private lessons)! Would definitely, and have, recommended to friends!

I've always been awful at languages but have renovated a house in France and now keen to improve. After two hours of listening to first two CD's, I have learned more than at school and it has brought together and expanded some of the limited French I already knew. By CD 7 or whatever it is, I don't expect to be fluent but seem likely to have a good command of the basics. Worth every penny.

Really well put together course - I could not believe learning a foreign language could be made so easy. In the past I have struggled to learn languages as they just seemed an enourmous memory test. This is so different - you will be amazed what complex and useful sentences you can say just by the end of disc one - and it is really not a struggle. The best starting point for learning French you could possibly have.
