Great Course

I found the course very easy to follow and soon started to feel confident. As with anything regular use of the audio book is needed.

Destination French

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book especially to those who have very little or no French and are due to go to France on their hols. Also useful for those who lack confidence that their 'school' French is actually still there in their memory. However I went on to buy 'French' by Paul Noble volume 1 which seems of have much of this book in it.

What about Paul Noble’s performance did you like?

He has a calm and reassuring voice. His French speaking counterpart speaks slow French then again at a more 'normal' pace - useful for practising yourself.

Any additional comments?

For me I found this book mostly 'reassuring'. I do actually remember my French from my schooldays and won't be making a fool of myself in France! As I have already said though Paul Noble's French volume 1 does contain a lot of this book's information - so worth thinking about before buying.

clear and concise, very useful

detailed enough to get through almost all customer interactions, concise and short enough to listen to multiple times before heading on your holiday to a french speaking country

Basic language skills in French.

Lots of practice and repetition done, has given me confidence as a new learner. Thanks
