    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.

    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!

  • Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05: Learn to Speak and Understand Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs

    "I've tried several ways and this is the best!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I've wanted to learn Spanish for years. I took two years in school and recall beginning to think in Spanish. I know that should be an indication that I have some aptitude, but all it and those years amounted to later was knowing what the Taco Bell dog said before reading the subtitle. I've tried every book and audio book that my library had to offer. I've spent $150 on a DVD set that promised great things. I was doing research on the best price for Rosetta Stone when I stumbled onto this method. Since I'd tried audio books before, I was skeptical, but since using credits on Audible made it such a great price, I decided to try it. And I have been surprised at the easy results! Because this method uses only audio, I'm not hampered by years of training in English pronunciation. Now instead of trying to fit the H into hablo, I hear it as "ablo". As the mother of a four-year-old, I understand the need to learn to speak before reading and writing. That doesn't mean that I can't learn to read it later, just as my son is learning to read English despite our idiosyncrasies. There is a free sample with the introduction and first lesson on Audible. Try it and you'll see.

    "Still the best I've found!"

    Story

    I've just finished unit 10 and am still in awe of how much better this system is than what I've tried before (high school Spanish, other audio tapes, and DVD lessons). My accent is MUCH better since I'm not trying to fit the English pronunciation onto the Spanish spelling. I've even started to roll my R's despite my high school teacher having written me off as a lost cause in that regard. Yesterday I sat next to a Spanish-speaking family in a restaurant and actually understood some of what they said. Judging by the pace of new words introduced, I feel confident that with four phases available, I'll be fluent enough to really consider myself a Spanish speaker once I finish them. And as I progress through the levels, I have yet to feel overwhelmed. New words are introduced at just the right places, while old words are reinforced. If you're reading this and trying to decide if it's worth trying, my advice is YES!

    If you consider learning a foreign language but have any kind of doubts about your ability to learn it or about how to proceed, this is a perfect book for you -- a treasure-trove of motivation bust and practical advice. Also if you've been actually trying to learn one or more foreign languages but without much success, this well be a very helpful book for you. Even if you are already passionate about learning languages and made a tangible progress with one or more of them, this will be inspirational and enriching book for you and -- you will still find lots of useful tips for language learning and will be reassured that what you do is not a crazy obsession but a quest shared by many others.

    The author is clearly passionate about languages; his advice is knowledgeable and sincere. Unlike so many others, he does not proclaim himself a discoverer of the best, the one and only, way to learn a foreign language but instead shares a lot of his personal experience and valuable advice, stating that the most important thing to succeed is to be passionate about learning the language. I couldn't agree more.

    I didn't expect much from this book (fluent in three months, it's sounds like another marketing gimmick), but it turned out to be one of the best books about language learning I've ever read.

It follows Stories for English for developing English speakers. Most learners of English never make it to books or even stories. They either use or don't use their command of English to some extent in the course of their job and leave it at that. All the same, teachers regularly get requests for books from their students, and here is a good start.
