    "Very Effective-Really Teaching Me to Speak French!"

    Wonderful female native French speaker with great accent. Knowledgeable English-speaking American instructor. Fast-paced and challenging yet highly supportive of the learner. Same great memory technique as with the “Power Spanish Accelerated” and “Power Italian Accelerated” programs, which I’ve also tried. (Romance languages are my casual interest.)
    As in the two ‘Power Accelerated’ audio programs from Language Audiobooks I just mentioned, the Power French lessons are concise and to the point. No long explanations, no fluff, only what you need to know to communicate effectively. Excellent choice of vocabulary words and phrases. Practical. Can be used in most situations the visitor might find him/herself in while touring France, or Quebec, for that matter. Very complete program that I believe takes the learner from novice to high-intermediate level French with sufficient practice. Listen to this program again and again and again and you’ll learn to speak and understand a bunch of useful French in very short order.

    "Great way to learn the French you'll need"
    If you could sum up Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    This is it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mark and his narrator bring together the key elements of learning French. My friends and I recently went to France, and the four of us tried all the major audio training methods. Marks' was the one all four of us agreed was best. We actually practiced in the car on our tour. I've decided to pick up his Portuguese books on Audible as well.


    What about Mark Frobose’s performance did you like?

    Just the right combination of conversational construction. Pacing was about right, perhaps a tad too much review of basic sentences. But overall it was really good. I have studied French in the past, but the other three had not. All of us got something out of it, and very quickly.


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

    No. We listened to it over a matter of four weeks, and reviewed it we went.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think you'll be disappointed in this. I would start with this one, and if it doesn't fit, try others. You'll save some money!

    "Easy & Effective"
    Would you listen to Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) again? Why?

    This seems to have an good combination of repetition and springing forward to learn new words and phrases. I get tired occasionally of the repetition, but I think it serves the purpose of reinforcing the basics. The french speaker is very easy to understand, with a clear, pleasing voice - different from several other audio books I've sampled. The one thing I wish this offered is a course outline showing the words and phrases in writing. I'm more of a visual learner, and not seeing the spelling of the words (even though this is a refresher for me, not completely new) is a bit of a hindrance. But, overall, this was very useful and easy to listen to.

    "Cheap - Easy to Use - Fast Learning"
    Any additional comments?

    On the recommendation of a friend who has been using Language Audiobooks programs for some time, I ordered Power French and Power Italian Accelerated to prepare for the trip I just took to Europe. Here is what I experienced with Power French 1 on the learning end of things:
    Cheap - Easy to Use - Fast Learning - Good Retention Technique - Great for my IPhone
    Here's what happened when I got to France after nothing but a few weeks with Power French:
    Could say Please Thanks You're Welcome - Could count - Could ask for directions and order food - Could sound like I had studied and spoke French for a while even though I hadn't.
    I didn't understand a lot of what was being said to me while overseas, but I got the gist of a lot of it from Power French, and I could speak really basic sentences. Virtually everyone understood me. Excellent program.

    "This is great if you've studied French before"

    If you took French in high school and haven't used it in, ooh let's say a couple of decades, then this is really great. I don't think it'd work for someone new to French, unless they know a similar language (maybe Spanish) and have a real aptitude for languages.
    But, as a refresher course, it's great.

    "Average"

    Wasn't very impressed, would much rather go for Paul Noble's series. This book doesn't explain the concepts well, rushes through the phrases without giving time for response and it all over the place.

    "Excellent French Lessons. Loads of material"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) to be better than the print version?

    I have not found the print version, and only listened to this via Audible download. I have purchased several products by this author (Mark Frobose) and I do highly recommend them. I took off 1 star because I could not find a downloadable PDF booklet of this product, if one exists. (His other audible French lesson products "Behind The Wheel" 1 and 2 come with full download PDF books of all the material you listen and learn).However it is an excellent system, clear, with good amounts of repetition, a solid start for beginners, and a fairly fast pace to move through new material.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm finding this very good to replay and re-listen to. in the 8+ hours it covers a lot of different topics and material. I fully plan to listen to it at least 6 times from start to finish, and on each time I often stop a chapter and rewind it to re-listen to the last half hour or so.I'm going to learn this stuff in record time, I swear!

    "Helpful aid to learning basics...."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Seems to mimic the method used by Michel Thomas by taking pronouns (me, you, they, us etc) and adding basic vocabulary to create simple sentences, so good for beginners to grasp some basics quickly. Jumps around a bit which leaves gaps in actual learning and unfortunately makes remembering a greater challenge as logic/progression disappears. Doesn't really cover any tense beyond present nor really discusses some key areas of grammar. Overall good intro for a non speaker and aid for a beginner.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Mark Frobose?

    Possibly


    Do you think Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If it is to provide something more than a basic intro then very definitely.
