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


“Something I liked very much about this book, is that you can apply what you learn here immediately in practical situations, for example going shopping or taking a train. Besides, the vocabulary that is included at the end of each tale, helps you in getting these words learned quickly.  - Mario


“This book was great! I thought learning would be much more difficult, but this was a fun way to learn basic skills of French, rather than using expensive software or boring textbooks. I highly recommend it!"- Summer Stalley
