There is now way this audiobook will be of any help to you if you're brand new to the french language. You'll need a wide vocabulary and a decent amount of grammatical training first.
As an intermediate however, this helped me immensely.
"Has HUGE amount of material. Scary,but good value"
Of all the French audio lessons I have tried so far, this one progresses the fastest. And I mean fast. I like it, but considering I have zero French lessons in my past, I will take a long time to master these 10+ hours with full understanding - however I believe it is an excellent part of my library, and that I will grown into this title as I learn and listen to it again.
I took off one star, because I could not find a downloadable PDF book of the course material - whereas other Audible titles like Paul Noble French 1,2,3,4, and also Mark Frobose's "Behind the Wheel" 1 and 2, come with a downloadable PDF booklet when you log in to Audible by a web browser).
I think over time this will become my most important French audio book as it covers such a stunning amount of material, subjects, important phrases etc - but its not for those who just wants masses of repetitions of the basic verbs. Be ready for full and interesting sentences quite quickly, on a wide range of topics!
Unlike the other French audio books I have listened to so far, this one also employs very brief chapters, say 5 or 6 minutes each. There are over 100 such audio chapters like this! I kind of like it because each one is on a specific lesson or topic, BUT because there is no accompanying PDF book that I can find, its very difficult to know which of the 100+ chapters cover which topics.
