    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

    "Excellent Resource for Oral French"
    Would you listen to French Phase 1, Unit 01-05 again? Why?

    Note: Please change your ratings. This is a language course, so there is no "story" to rate!

    I'm really enjoying this program for learning French. I have some basic French, so the first units are mostly review for me. But they are well done and short enough that I can always find 1/2 hour a day to keep up with it.

    "excelent course, a true way to learn!"

    A brilliant course for both beginners or like me someone with background knowledge already. The timing and layout makes the language stock in your memory and easy to recall then link words you've learned with other sentences.

    The theory behind its structure is explained at the beginning and makes sense. My brother has learnt Chinese mandarin though pimsleur and highly recommended it. Can't praise this enough, I want to listen everyday, its great!

    "Good course"

    This is a really good french course: it does work. I started to learn german with pimslaur first, and experiencing surprising success I also bought the first few of the french course. It goes a bit slower for me than the german, but I studied german at school years ago so I gues that helpes with that.. I go quite slowly with french but I notice that it is getting easier and the words and sentences just stick on me after a while. I think this learning program worths its price and it is really effective. I would surely recommend it to friends in the future (as I already did in the past).

    "Not a bad course"

    Like any of the language courses, you get out what you put in, it's not easy but the course takes a slow easy learning approach. Follow the plan and you'll start to learn. The course tends to provide a sentence, and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. As I mentioned in the title, not a bad course and I'd recommend it to help supplement French learning. As a side note most of the Pimsleur course seem to follow the same learning approach. I've tried the Swedish one previously. If you like one of the other Pimsleur courses you'll probably like this one.
