The nouns are not given genders (le, la, un or une) which makes this book pretty useless for my use if I want to speak French with nouns.
I wouldn't recommend this for a true beginner. It doesn't cover any grammar, just words and phrases. It was good as a review of basic words and phrases for me. The material covered was good. One complaint is that the pace is very very slow. They allow too much time between the spoken words.
I use it at work, while driving when cleaning the house! It has helped me so much, I absolutely recommend French For Dummies!
"un-engaging and dull"
Compared to other language books that I have tried I found this to be very un-engaging and dull. There was no enthusiasm in the almost computerized voices.
