Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. French Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak French. These units contain Reading Lessons designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
If they had taken out the lessons that have you simply repeat words you read from a book you haven't ordered.
It's misleading to sell this as an audiobook without saying that some of the lessons aren't really lessons per se. So, when you are buying 5 lessons, you are really only getting 3 or 4 because 1 or 2 are simply pronunciation lessons having you read (while driving?) from a book (that I didn't have!)
The readers are fine
This is really way too expensive for what you get.
"Not a bad course"
These are the more advanced Units of Phase 1, it follows on from Unit 10. The course, like the previous units, 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 and if you like one of the other language programs you'll probably like this one.
