Its ok, bit tedious listening to other imaginary students, and puts you off a bit. You are trying to speak the French but you don't get time, because Michele is talking to the other students and you are totally "left out" so you never get the chance to a bit of peace and quiet to speak your bit. I get irritated with it quickly
A much more natural way of speaking another language.
Was recommended to me by an English friend who lived in France for some years and is fluent in French speaking.
I was so impressed I bought the main set of CD's, now this is my only gripe. The CD in this box actually contains almost all the information in the first two Cd's of the main box set.
My point is if you are serious about learning french buy the main box set.
I have tried other sets but found this the easiest to use and pick up, moving through the CD's is a great motivator and I am learning whilst driving, no wasted time.
After listening to just the first 5 Tracks, I have realised that I have managed to absorb EVERYTHING learnt so far without even realising it for myself (if that makes sense), I just somehow KNEW what to say out loud; but the bigger picture is I didn't even need to "memorise" everything the Teacher on the CD teaches me, he just gives me the right tools (some really useful Vocabulary) and I feel that I was given the opportunity to use my head and seriously think about how to say this and that using the Vocabulary that was provided. Gradually, as the Tracks are played one by one, the Vocabulary builds and thus allows me to make longer and more detailed sentences in French!
I can admit that I have not yet listened to the whole CD yet and people may think it a bit too early to write a review, but I wanted to write this particular review in order to stress the fact that only by listening to the first 5 Tracks on the CD, already I felt confident to play around with the Vocabulary and say sentences in French that wasn't actually taught to me on the CD.
I have a number of audio sets and books to learn French and by comparison this is by far the easiest, and most impressive. Without great effort or repetition you will find yourself able to ask and understand questuions such as "Do you have a reservation for me, this evening?", "What do you think of the political and economic situation in France at the moment?" and other equally daunting sounding propositions.
The key to such rapid learning is simple - the revelatuon that 60% of English language is derived from French - you already have a vast vocubulary at your disposal - and with a handful of French phrases or verbs to get you started you will be up and running in no time and able to construct complex seeming dialogue.
This is just the starter course. I will almost certainly be moving on and buying the further courses based on how impressed I am with this one.
if you were a child this is how you would learn.....
the method is very good for people who dont learn languages well out of text books.
for me this is perfect and i have already learnt plenty of words and phrases from this CD
I will definitely buy the next levels....
only thing which bugged me a little , is Michel's French accent... urgh!
