Here’s What Our Customers Have to Say

“Okay, here’s why I love this: it’s not just a bunch of useful words and phrases, but the context to keep all those things interesting. As you go from situation to situation you see how people interact with each other, which is great. But it’s so much better than just sitting down and listening to two people speak French with each other. Because there’s audio included, so you can see the words AND listen to them at the same time. And when it’s done (and I often didn’t get it my first time,) I can just do the same lesson again so I master it and really get a feel for the language. It’s like learning to read AND listen to French at the same time.” - John Ashton

    “Right off the bat, I had a good impression of this book due to one reason; the addition of a slow version. The last time I studied French, was in 7th grade. Due to lack of studying, French sounds completely foreign to me right now, so for the authors to go out of their way to add this in, is a huge plus for me. The narrator is very deliberate in his diction which makes it easier for a novice like myself to follow along.

    All in all, this was a very good book for someone like me who wanted to dive back in to learning French but isn’t quite ready to go swimming in the deep end of the pool. High-quality book for beginning learners.

    I’ve had French friends for a long while and studied it once when I was younger. I’m also a fan of good stories. The way this book hits the basics allowing me to relearn French is a plus. Its layout design is easy to digest and appealing. And the mixture of English and French helps crutch my way in to having light hearted conversations with my friends from France in their language

    In this first volume are presented the basic dialogues about the day to day, about the family, seasons of the year, going out to make purchases, among others with an excellent didactics. Using a method of listening with a handout to follow vocabulary, these little stories can introduce and fix the basic vocabulary of the language. In addition they provide a slower audio ideal for beginners who do not have the least knowledge of the language.

    I think its a great book for those people, who want to improve their French. I ordered this book, because i wanted to improve my listening skills. Few years ago i was living a studying French in the south of France, but i have a couple of years with minimum practice. This book was really helpful, because it helps me with a pronunciation. Everyone who have learned French before knows that a pronunciaction sometimes are very dirrerent from the writing French, so it is very important to practice pronunciation , if you want to know that french people are talking about)
    The most i liked is that there are an option of the slow pronuncination, glossary recaps.

    I like this book) Definitely recommended)
