The words are spoken by native French speakers and the pauses are long enough, so that the reader can repeat and engage with the questions.
However, French for dummies will not teach you French. After listening to the course and going through the exercises; the most you can hope for is to remember 10-15 phrases. Alor!
I am quite a visual person so the lack of diagrams or assistive imagery is an issue for me, but if you are not a visual person then this book will be brilliant; it has full textual descriptions and helpful tables for singular and plural words.
It would have been nice if they had included some useful websites or resources to help learn French...
