5.0 out of 5 stars This Really works!!!!, 24 May 2011
This review is from: Total French (Learn French with the Michel Thomas Method) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I speak French moderately well and as my husband and I are considering spending some time in France in the future, I wanted to introduce my husband (who had no French language skills) to the use of basic French to improve his experience in-country. This proved an excellent beginners course, after just a few days, my husband took to it like the proverbial "canard a l'eau!". With 60% of English words having a French stem, the course starts very sensibly with words that have an English stem and the logical progression or similarity of those into French (i.e possible =possible (pron differently), comfortable = confortable etc.) Placing these into extended sentences makes the transition into social conversation remarkably easy. Using a simple combination "L'impression de la situation politique et economique en France a present,....(minus the accents), sentence construction becomes familiar. Verbs are introduced and the process evolves into a really good course. My other half is gradually building up his new found vocabulary and realy enjoying how much he was able to understand from the beginning! I can honestly recommend this course to anyone wanting to be able to converse easily. The introduction and explanation of pronouciation is also very good. This is a course I would recommend to anyone wanting to acquire the basics in French.Total French with the Michel Thomas Method (Michel Thomas Series)

Anyone have anything to say about the new content (the interactive exercises for PC)?
