"Good for beginners who have a slight base"
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.
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.
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.
Nothing particularly moved me, but I will seriously consider purchasing the second one in the series.
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.
