Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I used the Pimsleur French méthode audio (1-3) during my 30-minute commute for two years prior to traveling to Languedoc and Provence. My language skills were basic, but I was able to communicate with people, which greatly enhanced my enjoyment of vacationing in France. FYI, I was even complimented for my accent.After returning to Hawai'i, I eventually took first semester French in college, which helped me begin to write French and better understand French grammar, but I was way too advanced for first semester. I should have started with second semester French.I have a BA in Spanish, so I understand the language-aquisition process, and Pimsleur is effective for dedicated learners. It is by far my favorite méthode audio.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

The pacing is excellent. One has an appropriate amount of time to response to prompts.

French Level 2 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction and is designed to be used after completing level one. In the first 10 lessons of level two, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex, and informal speech is introduced.

Would you consider the audio edition of French Phase 2, Units 1-30 to be better than the print version?

French Level 1 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more.
