Regular Price:$113.35

Publisher's Summary

French is an official language in 44 countries. It is spoken by 55 million people in France, three million in Belgium, 1.5 million in Switzerland, 6.5 million in Canada, and five million in former French and Belgian colonies. It is also an official language of the UN.

Pimsleur French Level 5 is a new 30-lesson course designed to be taken after Pimsleur's French Level 4. Thirty 30-minute lessons totaling 15 hours of spoken French language learning - plus 75 minutes of reading practice, reading, and hearing a short story - allow you to read French for pleasure. Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur's French levels one through four. You'll be speaking and understanding French with near fluency and with a broad range of conversational skills.

In level five the pace and conversation move quite rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures, approaching native speed and comprehension. You'll learn to speak more in depth about your personal life and emotional state and be able to create complex sentences using a mix of tenses and moods.

A few of the topics included in French Level 5:

  • Travel and leisure: weather phenomena, geography, temperatures, the environment
  • Home life: real estate, furniture, appliances, clothing and laundry, cleaning, car maintenance, parties and celebrations
  • Family and relationships: getting along, planning a future together, breaking up, boyfriends and girlfriends, reconnecting
  • Body and health: body parts, pain, symptoms and cures, sleeping and waking, bad habits
  • Personal life and emotions: empathy, regret, hope, trust and distrust, sharing, bullying and name calling, growing older, recognizing and finding happiness.

The reading booklet to be used with the audio reading lessons and the user's guide are combined in a single PDF and included in this course. The user's guide is also in the audio.

    "A step in the right direction"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Phase 5 is full of all sorts of life situations that you would actually be put in. And the vocab is very valuable in this Phase. The stories jump all around with each lesson; from buying some groceries and making a tarte, to talking about how your parents will be arriving at the hospital soon to pick you up after a brush with death from a skiing accident. It's got everything.
