    From Provence to Paris, now you can join the conversation with Instant Immersion: French, the dynamic audio language learning system. Providing effective, progressive instruction in all the basics of structure, syntax, and grammar, Instant Immersion: French emphasizes the building blocks of proper speech and conversational skill-building, all set to a lively lesson plan of practical French vocabulary.

    "Easy to Learn"
    Overall

    I took 3 years of French in junior high and haven't used it since. It's been twenty years and when I got this I didn't think I would remember much. This audio helps me remember words and sentences easily. I learned a lot of new words too. For the price, this is great! I wish they were all Unabridged though.

    Four 60-minute programs offer a convenient and entertaining way to build a more powerful vocabulary. Each hour features 40 words used in everyday conversation or in the media and books that many skip over because they are difficult to define or pronounce accurately. More Word Builders.

    I love this, I got this a few years ago... I couldn't get to it sooner because not having the list of words prevented me from learning the words.

    But now, I'm galvanized, inspired, I have a notebook and I jot down each word, then check its spelling online (online dictionaries, use ones u trust)... the system of pneumonics are really helpful, I like the readers, it's actually a lot more fun than reading a vocabulary list.

    Again, I love it!

    Add some kick to your characters with some quick and simple dialect training. Paul Meier has been training actors for over 25 years and now offers his experience to the casual pretender in these entertaining presentations. You will find accent tips, colloquialisms, and charismatic character concepts that will add to your storytelling, roleplaying, or cosplay.

    A. Hawley says: "Worth the price but don't expect actual training"
    "Basic, Helpful"
    Overall

    There's an accompanying pamphlet to this (I wish audible had it on this page) but I found it at http://www.pulpgamer.com (mentioned in the beginning of this audio)

    I have to take notes eg. don't pronounce the r's unless it's before a vowel, something like that--I have to rewind and write these tips down

    The Learn in Your Car language series is the first system ever designed to teach a language in your car...or anywhere...without a textbook. And now with Learn in Your Car from audible.com, you can turn your PC, your Rio, or any mobile device into your own personal language tutor.

    Dionne says: "Good Refresher"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    I'm learning German, Spanish and French at the moment (I have time, besides Geman is similar to English, Spanish is similar to French so it all works out)

    I have Learn in Your Car for all these languages. They help me with practicing word order, vocabulary and pronunciation. For the price, it is terrific!

    Plus, it's a great skill enhancer. The voice says it in English, gives you time to say it in the French language, and then it says it in French as it should be. It's a wonderful way to get better at French.

    BTW I'm also using Rosetta Stone, Pimsleur and Berlitz Rush Hour for both and I can easily converse with a native of these languages, and I'm just getting started. Check with me in four months :)

    Tomorrow's God says, point blank, that humanity will soon recreate its experience of God in such a way that our experience of one another will be healed at last. You may agree or disagree with the contents of this audiobook, but you will never forget it.

    I like this book and all the Conversations with God book, but I like the unabridged version.

    This book is life changing, life evolving--please no more abridged versions.

    I'm looking forward to having his Home with God in a Life that Never Ends audio--unabridged!

    You're no idiot, of course. Neither is the team of memory and linguistics experts who have designed the world's most effective foreign language self-study course. International travelers, students, and business people can now learn to converse in a new language in less than half the time they expect.

    Catherine says: "Not as easy as the title implies!"
    "Like Pimsleur"
    Overall

    I like that it includes a downloadable PDF file to read.

    This works like Pimsleur, with dialogues. I would like it to be a lot longer though.

    The Learn in Your Car language series is the first system ever designed to teach a language in your car...or anywhere...without a textbook. Simple and effective, you can learn to converse in another language while driving, walking, or doing tasks around the house. Each course is organized the way you learn best - by learning words and phrases - and building these into sentences and clear conversations. Arrange hotel accommodations, order in restaurants, change money, and feel more at home next time you travel!

    Dan says: "Great for brushing up"

    It's true, you have to raise the volume to the max in order to hear.

    By listening to these specially composed melodies with their rhythmic repetitions of German and English a few times, you pick up over 200 essential words and phrases that will not just be on the tip of your tongue, but will be burned deeply into your long-term memory in next to no time.

    It's easy listening. Make sure to read the booklet and get the spelling, that helped me with remembering the words.

    Berlitz Kids presents a fun and effective introduction to German. In The Missing Cat, we meet Nicholas and his family, hot on the trail of their beloved cat Princess, who has disappeared from her basket. Find out what happens when the whole family sets off in search of Princess in this lively tale. Their search introduces youngsters to basic words and phrases, greetings and salutations, numbers, days of the week, members of the family, places in a city, colors, food, and more.

    Ulrike says: "Needs the picture book!"
    "Fun Learning German"
    Overall

    I'm an adult learning German. I would love to have the picture book that goes with this but the downloadable transcript audible gives you is fine. I'm learning lots of new words, sentence structure etc from this book.

    thanks Berlitz (Rush Hour Berlitz is great too!)

    Tita is the youngest daughter of Mama Elena, the tyrannical owner of the De la Garza ranch. As the youngest, she is expected to remain single and stay at home to care for her mother. So when Tita falls in love, Mama Elena arranges for Tita's older sister to marry Tita's young man.

    "Nice Story, Reading a little monotonous"
    Overall

    such a successful book, but the audio book reader's monotonous.

    plus it's a book whose characters are from mexico, so I feel the narrator should at least have a hint of Mexican accent, but no, nada.
