    "Commuter-french beginner-"lingo-maniac""
    What made the experience of listening to French for Beginners the most enjoyable?

    The structure of it was very easygoing and it did not rely much on grammar or spelling so I could listen to it while I was driving or running on treadmill and that was very enjoyable for me.


    What about Alexa Polidoro’s performance did you like?

    It was great. The way she did it was not stressful and she talked about everyday needs in French so you felt you can actually practice them everyday in your head. Also it was very important that she didn't bother with grammatical points too much, and also with songs and breaks in the middle of each lesson it was relaxing to listen to them.

    "Waste of time"
    What disappointed you about French for Beginners?

    Mostly advertisements for additional products and music rather than language instruction.


    Has French for Beginners turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Somewhat because I paid for this and it was well-rated.

    "too little French, too much English"

    Where is the abridged version? If one could do a word count of the transcript of these lessons, one would probably find that it's 95% in English and 5% in French. In terms of duration, the French parts in total are only slightly longer than the advertising at the end, and definitely shorter than all the musical episodes. Many English episodes are completely unnecessary, for example, explaining the idea of first, second and third persons, and the idea of conjugation and where one finds that in English.
