Then, you'll hear the conversation two times: One time at natural native speed and one time with English translation. After the conversation, you'll learn carefully selected vocabulary and key grammar concepts. Next, you'll hear the conversation one time at natural native speed. Finally, practice what you have learned with the review track. Repeat the words and phrases you hear in the review track aloud to practice pronunciation and reinforce what you have learned.

In the 15 All About lessons, you’ll learn all about French and France. Our native teachers and language experts will explain everything you need to know to get started in French, including how to understand the writing system, grammar, pronunciation, background on culture, tradition, society, and more - all in a fun and educational format!

The five Pronunciation lessons take you step-by-step through the most basic skill in any language: How to pronounce words and sentences like a native speaker. You’ll go from basic concepts to advanced tips and will soon sound like you’ve been speaking French your whole life.

The next course in this box set is Learn French – Gengo Beginner French. The course consists of lessons centered on a practical, real-life conversation.In each lesson, first, we'll introduce the background of the conversation.Then, you'll hear the conversation two times - one time at natural native speed and one time with the English translation.

    "Love the program, hate the choice of lessons"

    I recognize the program from a podcast I listen to, a very good one. The narrators are excellent and informative, and I've always wanted to purchase more of their lessons.

    However, when it comes to the lessons Innovative Language Learning chose to include in this "ultimate getting started" box set, I was very disappointed.

    A huge chunk of these 55 lessons (I'd say somewhere around ~20, very rough guess) don't actually include ANY lessons on speaking French, but rather information like French pop culture icons, French politics, etc. The program starts off well with lessons about pronunciation and grammar, then for some bizarre reason all you end up learning is how French government works etc.

    This isn't "Learning French"--it's helpful but it's not at all what was advertised.

    "Excellent Language Course for the Audible Audience"
    Where does Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's the best French audio course I have ever taken.


    Any additional comments?

    This course is designed for people looking to learn French, but who need to do this primarily via audio. While the instruction guide is very good, they do an excellent job of teaching the content effectively through the audio instruction, giving the listener essential vocabulary that is spoken at both the speed of a native speaker and a slower speed the learner can digest. Excellent job!

    "Good Introduction to French"
    Would you listen to Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55 again? Why?

    Yes. I found it very useful. I haven't studied French for many years, and this helped me to quickly re-learn much that I had forgotten, and more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story covered many situations that a visitor would encounter.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant conversation. Serious, informative and playful at times - not overly so.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Does really apply...

    "Disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55?

    If you want to learn how to speak English with a rather cute French accent, this is the audiobook for you, but if you want to start your journey learning to speak French this wiil not help you much. After 13 chapters I have learnt to greet and to count and have had to listen to dialogue in English; interesting snippets about France and French society but nothing to set my on the road to SPEAKING French.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Innovative Language Learning again?

    Yes, perhaps the advanced lessons are better.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

    Narrators are fine, if only they spoke more French.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55?

    The long English dialogues.


    Any additional comments?

    Really not enough FRENCH text.

    "Not what I was looking for"

    If you are interested in learning about French culture and listening to two people flirt in English for a few hours with a tiny bit of language then this is for you.



    If you want to learn to speak and understand French there are much better products around such as the Collins French series and the Michel Thomas series.

    "Yadda Yadda get on with it will yer..."

    Chit chat and pod cast magazine style got a bit slow after a while.



    I was keen to learn conversation and actually get to grips with things. This was a frothy Magazine format that deals as much with the relationship between the presenters, as it did with the language.



    I guess it's more of an introduction to the French culture and entry point language for a distant US audience, I live more local to France and know they like to strike and eat snails, I didn't need a nice American man to be surprised at the very notion. Apart from the political insecurities of right wing America I didn't dislike the book but just lost patience waiting for the language learning to start.



    I apologise if this is much later in the book as I didn't get to the end, life is too short, I just want to go to France and it would be nice to say a few words.
