I downloaded Alexa's 5 free audios and like them. At first, she may appear to be random as was noted by an earlier comment; however, her teaching makes progress. She moves a little more slowly and presents French in smaller bites, than do some other teachers. But she makes learning fun and makes her listener feel as if he/she isn't even working at learing French.
As for the previous comment about there being so much English: He's right; Lesson 1 has mostly English and little French. It's all about making the learner comfortable and to not feel intimidated by a foreign language. She goal is to take the foreign out of learning a new language. As Alexa progresses, she gradually uses more French, until there is little, or no, English.
I've completed her first four lessons and look forward to further pleasant, French learning experiences with Alexa.
Actually teach a some useable French.
He thinks he's teaching French by telling one how many French and English words are similar. He gives a few words to use those similar words is present tense sentences with either the French equivalent of I or you as the subject. He includes almost to grammar instruction, and the learner has very little that can be used in normal experiences. Not to be recommended.
I was disappointed, partly because of the lack of adequate explanations.
I downloaded this when I was exploring programs for learning French and was immediately turned off. It expects the learner to learn by rote. I was also even a bit bored; consequently, I didn't continue with the program.
For those of us who are visual learners, Pimsleur offers no written French, and we don't learn to read the language. This also means that when we travel to a French country we are handicapped as we will have trouble reading what we need to read. French has many silent letters that we are unaware of with the Pimsleur approach and that we won't recognize when we see them.
