    "Great Audio Lessons - comes with PDF book. Awesome"
    If you could sum up Behind the Wheel in three words, what would they be?

    Effective. Clear. PDF Download!I've listened to about 8 different French audio lesson books by different authors / creators. Mark Frobose is great. (I also recommend Paul Noble series 1,2,3,4.). I never learned French at school, so I am starting from zero base, but I am a committed learner now (marrying a French woman!) so I appreciate the way this series covers the basics, but I really appreciate that it moves along at a good pace, and expects me to review / replay / repeat / read in my own time. For this reason, I consider it great value to a person who wants to move quickly but is also prepared to put in extra hours to replay the series several times and also to read the PDF downloads and practice.This "Behind The Wheel" series (I have purchased both parts "French 1" and also "French 2" on Audible) comes with a 110+ page downloadable PDF to assist reading / listening / learning. Top value for money in my opinion. MAKE SURE you log in to your Audible account via a web browser to discover where you can download the accompanying PDF! Considering I purchased it with my included monthly members credit, and get 8+ hours of audio AND the PDF book, you cannot beat that for value.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Frobose has other products, also very good, BUT I didnt find downloadable PDFs with those ones, so thats why I recommend "Behind The Wheel" 1 and 2 ahead of his other products.

    useful, flexible, enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    An Innovative and Effective Language Program that Ensures Maximum Results with Minimal Effort. Mark Frobose knows what you need to learn French language. The course may be not attractive at first glance, however, you should take it serious to study and find a quite to listen. The PDF provide the Audio Transcript part for your reference, and many other useful materials to learn French as well.

    "Good for beginners who have a slight base"
    Where does Behind the Wheel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is an average book. I like the length of the book (over 8 hours) because it allowed me to feel I was slowly improving over time.


    What other book might you compare Behind the Wheel to and why?

    I have also listened to most of the beginner Michel Thomas french. I think if I'm honest I prefer that book, I found it more interactive as you practiced with the other 'students' in the audio. I also thought that it gave longer pauses so I could really test myself before hearing the correct response, but I don't want to put you off this book because I did think it did a good job of organizing the material into manageable chunks.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    The main narrator's voice sounds almost computer generated. It took some getting used to because it would put me to sleep if I wasn't paying attention. The other narrator is a native french speaker and I found her performance good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing particularly moved me, but I will seriously consider purchasing the second one in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the book while walking to walk and would repeat each lesson at least once before moving on to the next. I thought it went at a nice pace, and the later chapters would review the material learned in the beginning. I enjoyed this because it really felt like a good test of my memory.
