Publisher's Summary

Learn French with Ease! 

Do you want to learn French quickly? Or perhaps you already know the basics, but you still have difficulties in assimilating this charming language? Do not worry; this audiobook will help you.   

By using this audiobook together with practice, you can learn to understand, read, write, and speak this beautiful language. French tends to have a reputation among English speakers as hard to learn, but it’s easier than you might think. Many courses of language study assume you are going there for vacation, and so begin their lessons with everyday survival phrases that people use. There is some of that in this audiobook, but consider that verbs are what make a language.   

During each chapter of this audiobook, you will be guided, and each part will have examples, followed by practical exercises.    

Just some of the questions and topics covered in this audiobook include: 

  • Pronunciation
  • The French alphabet
  • How to count in French
  • The time, date, and calendar
  • The elements of a sentence
  • The verbs of group 1-3
  • Conjugation
  • Different types of sentences
  • Expressions
  • French vocabulary for travel and vacation
  • And much more!

Listen to this audiobook now to learn more!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Nice Work "
    Any additional comments?

    I have been reasonably fluent in French in the past, but have forgotten too much. I enjoy working with the book. I don't need help with my accent, so I go through the lessons and say them aloud to get my mouth more used to the language. They are well organized and are a perfect format for me to pick up at random moments to practice.

    "Great Resource"
    Any additional comments?

    Great resource. Has useful vocabulary along with, obviously, tons of grammar lessons and little practice activities too. There were a couple of higher-level grammatical concepts I would have liked to have seen but if you're looking for proficiency (which is what it's marketing itself as a guide for according to its cover), then I highly recommend it.

    "an impressive book "
    Do you have any additional comments?

    This is a great book! Yes, you will learn French up to an intermediate level if you complete the book. It builds upon itself with each lesson and new chapter. I just don't understand the negative reviews. You need to give the book a chance. Each Chapter has constant reviewed words in it and difference breaks for vocabulary study. I highly recommend it!

    "I Liked It"
    Do you have any additional comments?

    I definitely like this book. I learn French using Fluent French software and I bought this book as a supplementary to the software.
    The book explains everything clearly, it is very easy to follow and it leaves nothing obscure. As the title says "step-by-step" it builds the foundations of the French grammar.

    "It is just like a tutor"
    Any additional comments?

    Went through this as I was taking lessons from a tutor who ordinarily doesn't love these books for her students but for me, being a beginner and doing it along with her lessons, worked well for me.

    "Best French Book "
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best French grammar books in its price range on the market. It's made up of short lessons that build upon themselves and exercises that reinforce the material. The content is straight-forward, and the examples used are sufficient in showing application of grammar by context.

    "Good Brush Up Tool "
    Any additional comments?

    Bought this to brush up on my high school French so I could communicate better with the French Canadians at our southern RV park. Very helpful and I learned some things I was too stubborn to learn in HS. I like the exercises but will need to add an English-French dictionary.
