    "Okay but too complex for survival"

    Overall, this is an okay product but I felt that some of the phrases are too complex for the non French speaker. If you said them correctly and a French speaker responded, you would have no idea what they were saying to you. Some sections on volume 2 might have been better in volume 1. I did enjoy the social and cultural tips. And each lesson followed the same format with repeated pronunciation examples. But if the narrator had said "bon chance" and explained what it meant one more time I might have thrown my Kindle out the window.

    "Excellent!"
    Where does Learn French - Survival Phrases French, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The narrator is excellent, his style of delivery is clear and refreshing. I like his fast pace too, its not too fast to follow along at all, but perfect if you are serious about learning and want to work to achieve some degree of fluency quickly. I have several mps or cds and use this one the most. Agreed, if youre just taking a quick trip and have no real interest in the language you may just want to buy a short guide to get you through. But I do feel this audio is very useful for a short term traveler who wants to feel more comfortable.

    "Good information but ridiculous format!"

    As I am leaving for my first trip to Paris in 4 days, it was helpful to have a "Survival" guide. The information and tips are extremely useful and I'm sure I'll use all of them. The instructor's voice, however, left something to be desired as he sounds like he has a bad cold. Add to that, at the end of each "very short" lesson, too much time is wasted explaining the exact same instructions on reviewing what was just learned. Not sure who's decision is was to include this each and every time (It's identical!) but not only was it annoying, it took away from the lessons in my opinion.

    "Easy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Learn French - Survival Phrases French, Volume 1 to be better than the print version?

    This audio was very easy to listen to and learn. The words are broken down slowly by syllable and repeated often for greater understanding. Great survival phrases!

    "ok"

    It was alright. It goes a bit slow. I know that its hard to learn a new language, but this slow was a bit much.
