Fast, easy, yet in-depth. One of the few language instruction audiobooks that explains things I've been wondering about but no one seemed to address. For instance, I wondered why some letters are silent at the end of French words, why do some French words have a different first sound other than the letter they start with (it's a carryover from the consonant of the last word to the beginning vowel sound of the word being pronounced). Also, the language is presented in a fast-paced, fun way. It's so easy to keep up with what principle or word or pronunciation is being taught. I highly recommend that beginners check out this audiobook. It has helped me tremendously.
