I enrolled on an evening class to learn the basics of French - as I didn't do French at school, and thought it would be handy to learn the language for holidays etc. This is the Box Set we were advised to use by our College Tutor, as we would be basing the course on this. On the whole, not too bad, but the language on the discs is spoken by French people - very quickly! However, there is a link web address, which means if you are not part of a class you can see video clips that slot in nicely with the book and discs. It is very much a case of 'how do you learn best?' and some people will find it more helpful than others. Cost wise, I would recommend buying the twin Box Set as opposed to buying them individually.

The book & CDs provide the delicate balance between enough repetition to allow learning with enough variety to encourage continued engagement. This learning set has not been put away in a drawer for use in the future!

Very good for listening in the car. There is a big jump from the first to the second CD but good for me to brush up previous skills with.

I was very pleased with this product. It is good value for money and covers all the basic conversations that are necessary to get you the typical things you would generally need to ask for. I liked it especially because the book is supplemented by the CD. The only thing that could be better is the number of repetions to phrases as the CD progresses. Many of the statements made in french and then english would benefit from repetition before moving on to the next section. But that said, it is still a very useful tool.

Talk French is a good basic starter pack for learning the language. The thing I found most beneficial is the use of french speakers in the various scenarios. This ensures that whilst the book imparts the language in a clear and concise format, the user gets the benefit of hearing conversations as they would in France. Whilst this may appear difficult to pick up at first due to the speed in which things are said, repeated play, pause and replay certainly improves the understanding. Well, for me anyway.

As a course book it is easy to follow but it is rather short of content. There are much better courses in the market but they cost a little more.

Talk French (1 & 2) includes 2 text books and 2 CD's. the format of the books is clear and concise, and perfect for anyone wishing to learn French with no, or very little prior knowledge of the subject. The dialogue on the CD's is also very easy to follow and comprehend.j
