    Children Only!

    Should have a warning "Not Suitable for Adults!" For the time that I managed to suffer listening, I found it difficult to actually the hear the french being repeated, tough if you wanted to have a chance to repeat, there wasn't enough of a gap. However, plenty of gaps between sections to listen to the terrible music! The music is more in the foreground than the french words, difficult to hear the pronounciation. Also annoying, children trying to sound "grown up" or was it a case of adults trying to sound like children?

    Missed it by that much

    What would have made French Word Booster better?

    They start off by saying and English word twice and then the French equivalent twice. It goes pretty quickly. English, English, French, French, English, English, French, French, and so on. Over time you would probably learn pretty easily.

    Every so often, they switch it up and say the French version first. Within minutes, you can't tell if the matching English word is said before or after the French word. I think that it is someone's idea of a great joke. Teach people to say house instead of chair and chair instead of window.

    Absolutely worthless.

    What was most disappointing about Vocabulearn’s story?

    The story was corny, but that wasn't the point.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Decent concept.

    Any additional comments?

    So bad it should be refundable.

    Good for listening

    Would you listen to French Word Booster again? Why?

    Although I am just beginning to learn French, this helps with the natural flow of the language.
