the writers use of repetition.
the witers explaination on when to use the verbs and the fact that he explained in English.
the way the writers explains and also gives one time to repeat after him makes the book interesting and if I had just read it I wouldn't be this confident
I didn't have an emotional reaction to the book but it made me laugh.
Understanding the French language is one thing, but speaking in the right tenses has been the most complicated bit to me. This book helps to simplify ones understanding of conjugation, as the writer takes time to conjugate in each tense more than once. The more you read out with the writer the more you get an understanding of when and how to use your tenses. I would definitely recommend this audible book to anyone who is looking to perfect their use of the French language.
This Audio Book really helped me improve my pronunciation and verb conjugations make more sense to me now. I have learned very useful things like when to use a specific tense or which form of interrogation is normally used. I liked that I was given the possibility not only to repeat the verbs, but also to check what I learned as the drills give you practice in random order. Great way to learn.
This audio is a fantastic way of breaking down French verbs, using a simple method. The pauses are long enough to be able to repeat the verbs and then listen to the way they should sound - further enhancing my pronounciation. The narrator translates each verb at the beginning of each chapter and how they would be used in French, which I have found to be very useful.
Bought audiobook as I am trying to learn French, yet struggle to grasp how to use verbs correctly. Have found it to be an excellent learning tool. The verbs are spoken slowly, initially, to teach pronunciation. I found it helpful to then hear how they should sound, when spoken quickly by a fluent French speaker
No. The idea is great, learning verbs and conjugation by repeating them randomly. But the idea was spoiled by the voice of the reader. A man with soft blurring french, suitable to romantic characters in a movie, is the sole reader, both in short explanations in English and the actual French part, which should be clear and audible. It's sometimes hard to understand what he says in English and the attention is not drawn to the learning but listening, all of 27 hours. There should be at least two voices, one reading in English and maybe another one for random questions, and one for french. I managed to listen the first 6 hours but not really knowing, at times, what I was listening to.
Please do this again with proper readers. And please, not the sharp and loud American English speaker who overpowers everything, like in the 'Stories for beginners', but clear pleasant-to-listen-to voices, there are a lot of good examples.
The Audio was very good. The pronunciation was very clear. The man's tone of voice was very calm.
I especially liked the interactive part.
It gives you a chance to practice, to find the answers yourself and then compare it to his answers and how he pronounces them. This is a great way to learn the french language and I definitely recommend it to all who are trying to learn.

Yes, his tone of voice was calm and relaxing. His pronunciation was very clear. Timing was good.
Great method for learning French
This is a great way to learn the french language and I definitely recommend it to all who are trying to learn.
I actually love this method of learning another language. The drills gave me a lot of time to actually learn the conjugation of the verbs. First doing it slowly to get the pronunciation then as if you are speaking, you can hear how the natives put it together. I feel more comfortable saying these drills outloud than any other teaching I tried. Good audiobook to have.
"An interesting technique to start speaking French"
"Having taken some lessons in the past, for me was great this audio book focused in some of the most important and commonly use verbs in the French language. The author’s pronunciation is clearly good, but sometimes his strong accent causes me some trouble to understand the short explanations in English. On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised by the repetition system results in all his variations. Soon I started to develop a natural reflex to clearly identify the right words along the drills, and now I feel more confident with my skills. Besides, the book offers a text version in PDF, which is a great way to integrate the writing learning and gives you a visual reference for a better focus. Very useful if you already know some basics!"
"Great Help with French Conjugation"
I found this method of learning verb conjugation very enjoyable. I have always wanted to brush up my French conjugation and this book was just the thing to help me with that! My pronunciation has improved dramatically because the author teaches you the verbs as they are spoken in France today. I am much more comfortable speaking now that I feel confident that I can conjugate verbs correctly. The drills give you practice in random order and give you time to figure out the correct answer yourself, and that has been very helpful. This is a product I would highly recommend.
"Good for a quick start in French Conversations"
Jumpstart your french
It's really helpful that this audiobook is designed for you to practice verbally so you can repeat it after the narrator as he adds a pause for practice.
He's French and he says it 2 ways, how its supposed to be said slowly and how french people actually say it which is very quickly so the words blend together a bit. Its a different sound and important for oral comprehension.
Its 16 hours of grammar so its best to study it over time.
I really like that he begins with the verbs that are used the most in conversation in French. I would highly suggest using the website or emailing for the free PDF as French is often spelled differently than pronounced.
"Excellent Teaching Method"
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Listening and repeating the phrases is very helpful while learning to put together conversations in French.
"Great If You Have Prior Knowledge of French"
Yes, It's a very informal and helpful book if you have already taken a few lessons of French
No, it's kind of hard to follow along with
"Good value - lots of content!"
Would recommend for those who have a basic working knowledge of French BUT the audio does a good job explaining the use of each tense and defining each verb so anyone can learn from it!
First off, this is 16.5 hours of content which is awesome. At first I was overwhelmed by the amount but it is broken down into many small chapters for each verb in the various tenses and moods. So, you can just go through one at a time as you get the chance.
I think this is particularly helpful for English native speakers who aren't used to the concept of conjugating verbs because I know when I started learning French the hardest part to get used to was applying the conjugations I learned in class when I was actually speaking. I usually just said each verb in first person and hoped for the best! This has helped train me to naturally use the correct conjugation for each subject pronoun.
Great audiobook! I love how the speaker explains the method used before beginning the drills. I also appreciate the fact that he pronounces each verb slowly and allows a brief pause for you to do the same. Not only do you get to hear the word used slowly, but he then repeats the list of verbs at a normal pace so that you can get the feel of how the words sound when having a normal conversation in French. I find this super helpful for someone who has not taken a French course in a while and needs a refresher on pronunciation.
"Immersive Language Practice"
This audiobook provides essential verb drills that will greatly assist those who are studying French. Of particular note is the manner in which you are guided first in a slow and then in a quicker process with the narration of a native speaker. It is an immersive experience that will assist language learners in natural speaking and listening skills.
