    Story

    Took a college french class and no one could understand a work I said in French at the end of the class. This helped me say the words and not worry about spelling or grammar. The french have an annoying way of not pronouncing the end of most words and conjugated verbs all sound alike to me. Pimsleur just put them in sentences I could understand then reviewed them often. This worked out so well I eventually bought Phase 1, 2 and 3. Now I can actually carry on a very basic conversation and understand a fair amount of conversation in french. I did listen to each section every day and sometimes repeated the section. French does not sink into your head automatically, but if you just listen and repeat lessons each day it is pretty amazing what sticks. I did dishes, laundry, went to the market or ran errands while listening. Made boring chores more interesting and learned basic French.

    Where does Learn French - Survival Phrases French, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The narrator is excellent, his style of delivery is clear and refreshing. I like his fast pace too, its not too fast to follow along at all, but perfect if you are serious about learning and want to work to achieve some degree of fluency quickly. I have several mps or cds and use this one the most. Agreed, if youre just taking a quick trip and have no real interest in the language you may just want to buy a short guide to get you through. But I do feel this audio is very useful for a short term traveler who wants to feel more comfortable.

    What did you love best about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    It makes you repeat the phases and makes you think since the narrator will ask you to say phases in different ways. I tried other programs and so far this is the best. It also focuses on phases that are important to start with. Lastly and most importantly, it helps you learn how to say things correctly because each syllable is broken down and you are supposed to sound out then out (on certain words). They point out things that are not so obvious to the
