They tried to teach me in school and I've been visiting France for years, but I've only ever managed to retain the most basic French. This has taught me so much in such a short time and has given me the confidence to think that someday I might even be fluent!
Yes. I wasn't convinced about audiobooks to learn languages, but this proved me wrong within the first 30 minutes. Brilliant!
Other language courses, although I haven't tried any yet. This will give you the confidence to try something a bit more advanced, as it gives you a great grounding in the basic of French speaking.
Not yet. Going to do Italian next!
I wouldn't bother... That would be just weird.
Try it, honestly, it works.
This was done calmly and slowly and I found myself much more confident at the end
This very thorough and intensive course really put me through my paces, which is what I wanted. The course works through a non-stop series of drills, which are led and explained very slowly and clearly by Paul Noble, at a pace which is relaxed, yet persistent. Although there is very little use of grammatical terms, I feel that the course is very grammar-focussed, a big positive for me. The course nevertheless also covers a range of communicative situations.
Yes. It's easy to follow, perfectly paced
No - not really applicable for language learning - also I bought for my commute, so a single sitting would have meant a truly horrible traffic jam!
This is a much better designed and presented course than the Michel Thomas version. Paul Noble uses a French speaker, so you hear the correct French pronunciation of words rather than non French people trying to speak the language. Paul Noble's explanations are also clearer and more memorable.
The Michel Thomas's course uses the same approach
Paul Noble's explanation of how to conjugate and pronounce the future verb tense
It is far too long and needs to be listened to in bite sized chunks.
Clearest and best explained French course we have heard. Also great to listen to just before re visiting France.
