For a truly portable ‘French’ experience you’re going to have to knock some holes in the language barrier. No, this program won’t qualify you as a professional interpreter/translator. No program will. But this Smartphone French 1 Intensive audio program could make you conversational in French while greatly improving the quality of your waiting time, traffic time, red light and train time, and the 101 other frustrating and time-wasting experiences we have to endure daily.
Imagine learning to speak French and not having to invest one minute of quality time to learn all of it. Just take this handy and portable program around with you on your smartphone wherever you go, use it while you wait, and you're sure to learn French and “enjoy the process” as they say in the program.
Don't worry about not understanding either. I was delighted to find that the lessons all come with immediate English equivalents and a native French instructor so there is nothing to look up. No mindless repetition either. Just a lot of thoughtful memory review and sentence building exercises that I found to be highly entertaining. These four-plus hours of French lessons will teach you to eat well, travel smart and to do a whole bunch of other things all the while learning to speak French while you’re in traffic, while waiting for a cake to bake, even while watching your kid at soccer practice.
Speaking in complete sentences and with the correct pronunciation is the goal of this Smartphone French 1 Intensive program. And remember … It doesn't matter if you don't have time to learn French. This program is MADE to teach French to people who don't have any spare time at all. That's why I recommend you try it. It really worked for me and has become my constant companion.
Repetition is the mother of skill, especially when it comes to memorizing vocabulary in a new language. I have been studying French for 5 months at Alliance Francaise both in the States and abroad. I must say that having Drive Time French either playing in the background when I am getting ready in the morning, or listening to it while on the elyptical machine really goes a long way when it comes to solidifying and expanding upon what you are learning.
One caution with regards to the idea of using this as your soul source of learning French. If you are a visual learner (and perhaps even if you are not), this simply can not be your only source of learning. French has so many silent letters and grammatical quirks that it is necessary to take a class and/or get a workbook and a textbook. I would also recommend using google while you are studying.
