Really Motivate Your Kids to Learn French for Less than 7 Bucks
Parents: If your kid is having trouble with French then you should get this audio course. A lot of kids discover that French is harder than they thought it was going to be. Surprise, surprise. The first couple of weeks of class they think French is fun. That excitement often goes away fast. The increasing difficulty decreases their motivation to study and their grades will predictably suffer. Peer tutoring is often not all that helpful. Most parents can’t afford private lessons from a professional.
Get online. There’s an audio program from languageaudiobooks.com called Freakishly Easy French. It only costs about seven dollars. It doesn’t teach grammar or explain all the details of the language. That’s ok. The school teacher and the textbook can do that. What Freakishly Easy French can do is play the role of a motivator. The words and phrases are not too difficult and the native instructor makes it easy to pronounce them with a true French accent. The guide and narrator, by the way, is a sixteen year old girl! Perfect for teenagers.
Classmates can listen to this French language audio program together. Once they figure out that French is not impossible to pronounce and to learn, they will be more inclined to do their French class homework. Then their French grade will go up. That’ll be worth every penny of your 7 bucks. It’s a wonderful thing when a kid gets motivated to learn a foreign language. It may ultimately lead to interest in a trip to France and an interest in something outside of the place where they grew up. In a world of nations that are becoming increasingly interdependent that is not a bad result.
Of course. The more you listen the better, and more confident, you become.
If You Go Hungry, Get Lost, or Can’t Find the Bathroom in a Spanish Speaking Country after Listening to this Travel & Eat Audio Program, It’s Your Own Fault!!
From your Passport to your Tacos, it’s all here: airports, hotels, cars, coffee, tea, milk, juice, beer, wine, burritos, and beef. That’s the short list. This is a five and a half hour crash course that teaches you how to eat well, travel smart, drink merrily, and improve your Spanish all at the same time.
You learn enough ask directions, and to communicate with waiters and waitresses, cooks and customs agents. The Spanish speakers on the audio say everything slowly enough so that you can understand and repeat. They also say it again at normal talking speed. It doesn’t just teach isolated words. It teaches you how to use those words to make full sentences so that you can understand, speak, and get what you order instead of just point, gesture, and hope for the best.
This Spanish for Travel and Eating Out audio program will get you through the airport and to the hotel, beach, and restaurant easier than you will expect. Learning the material on it before you go will help you get a better ‘taste’ of the culture while you are there - literally!
I only review language programs that are easy, fast, effective, portable, inexpensive & teach you to really speak and understand languages.
Power Italian 1 Accelerated – Listen, Repeat, Recall, and Don’t Worry About It.
I am so impressed with myself (and, oh yeah, with the Power Italian Accelerated audio program, too) that I feel compelled to write a review. I like stuff that works and this Power Italian Accelerated audio program really works. The material may seem a little overwhelming at first because there are a whole lot of words and phrases that are thrown at you right off the bat. But there’s a reason for that.
The narrator uses what he calls ‘audio snapshots’ to introduce new material. These are sections where the listener is instructed to simply listen without repeating. The first audio snapshot comes right after the program begins and lasts for several minutes. My first reaction was that this is way too much material and I’m never going to remember all of it. And that’s true. I didn’t remember hardly any of it at first. But I kept listening. It wasn’t until I was a couple of hours into the program that I realized that remembering all of it is not the point; at least not in the beginning. I, and probably most people, have always assumed that learning a new language was about memorizing words and sentences. And it is. But what I have come to realize, my own personal epiphany, is that listening is just as important and I think even more important than intentionally memorizing. I’m not saying that you don’t have to remember anything; of course you do. But one of the keys to remembering is just simply listening. You have to ‘tune in’ to a language, that is, to the peculiar sounds of a language, in order to be able to speak it and to understand it.
The relatively short time that I have spent listening to Power Italian has given me a new perspective on learning languages and I have some advice that I’d like to pass along: Just do what the program narrator says to do and just keep listening and repeating. The words and phrases get easier and easier to remember as you go along and the correct pronunciation gets easier and easier the more you repeat the words and phrases. If you just follow along and don’t worry about what you know and what you don’t know you’ll soon be surprised at what you know - and equally surprised that you came to know it without a lot of mental or emotional sweating. Power Italian really works for me. No worries!
