Want to break free of beginning-level French and really learn to communicate effectively with native French speakers at an entirely different level? Welcome to Power French 2 Accelerated!

This is a easy and interesting way to learn French , but a booklet to go along with it would make it so much better, you need to recognise the written word also.
Some boring lessons repeated four five or six times. Does the publisher know that we have the technology to go back a chapter. Also... very random selection of items covered. Okay for tourism possibly.
The orator is excellent, a confident fun American, with some convention-breaking chat with the native speaker.
When the audio started it very quickly went into reflexive verbs/pronouns, something which I thought was of high value and made me excited for the rest of the product. Unfortunately there were not many more expositions over grammar concepts and when 7 hours deep I was STILL repeating "I eat, I am going to eat, I am going to eat now" I gave up hoping for something more substantial. Perhaps this level is not appropriate for me. I will try Power French 3 for sure anyway
The author describes himself as America's most trusted language teacher. However, altho his website promises to respond to queries within 48 hours I sent in two queries weeks ago (an initial query and a follow up) and both were completely ignored.
"Made For Simplicity and Retention"
I loved Power French 1 and found it to be amazing because I actually learned to speak and understand a huge amount of French from it.
I expected Power French 2 to be a bit of a “letdown” but was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s every bit as effective as Power French 1.
This system seems to be designed so intelligently that even small amounts of grammar, common words and phrases, can all be used in different orders and sequences (you get to pick the sequence – that’s the cool part) and you come off sounding like you’ve spoken French for years.
It’s like “Cliff Notes” on steroids for wannabe French learners.
Great program series. Highly recommended
"Intelligently organized for fluency & simplicity"
Power French 2 is so intelligently organized that even the smallest addition of new vocabulary, a phrase or a new verb greatly magnifies your fluency. I am amazed at the simplicity of Mark Frobose’s approach, and I applaud him for the fluency in French that I am finally reaching. I suggest beginning with Power French I Accelerated before attacking Levels 2 and 3.
"Organized for Fluency"
I would describe my ultra successful past month of intensive and enjoyable learning of French from Mark Frobose’s Power French 2 Accelerated as follows:
“The intelligent and efficient organization of French, presented in an interesting and engaging fashion, designed to stimulate within the listener, original and spontaneous French fluency and using only the most useful words, phrases, expressions and tenses in a fun, non-grammatical way”.
It’s tough to do this excellent program justice, but I just tried.
In plain English …. It’s a heckuva great program and it has pushed me towards near-native fluency in French.
"Intelligent Organization & Method"
What I really like about Power French 2 is the clear presentation. In fact, the entire Power French 2 program is so intelligently organized that even a small amount of intermediate French vocabulary can be used to speak hundreds of sentences that you create yourself. This gives great confidence to continue learning.
The native French speakers that I work with think that I'm in some kind of high-priced language school because my French is now sounding so good and natural.
Power French 1 really worked for me. Now Power French 2 is a clear winner.
I'm looking forward to getting Power French 3 once I've mastered all of this great material.
Organize the recording so it's not as repetitive. It overlaps his first tape and then repeats the same exact lesson several times. I agree with the reviewer who said it's all over the place. I now am listening to his driving audio and it is much more information. Not repetitive at all. If I want to repeat something I can rewind.
Very clear speaking by Mark and CHloe
An accompanying pdf would help.
