Got Me Speaking French Verbs in Context - Great Ed

Any additional comments?

Many thanks to Language Audiobooks and the Language Guy Mark Frobose and his native French speaking assistant Chloé for this wonderful French verb program that got me over the hump and into speaking French verbs in context.

Brilliant and remarkably easy approach. Mark explains, Chloé (wonderful native accent from
Picardie France) teaches you real French. (I actually discovered that Chloé is a degreed teacher of French to English speakers). A rare find. Bravo.

Anyway ...

Plenty of time is given to respond to cues and an extremely consistent, clear method that still allows for spontaneous creative sentence creation.
I don't know how they did it, but this team delivers great French verb instruction fast and easy.

"Help over the hump'

What did you love best about Power French Verbs I (English and French Edition)?

There are explanations in English and opportunities to hear, repeat and hear again pronunciations by a native speaker. Also, good review of commonly used verbs in sentences which help you remember and get "over the hump" in learning to speak French.

Should have gone through one more round of editing

What disappointed you about Power French Verbs I (English and French Edition)?

I'm an intermediate level student. I struggle with recalling verbs, nouns I already know when speaking. This book seemed like a good choice to use for practicing recall and speaking.Unfortunately there are sever problems with this audio book1. It is poorly edited or structured. Listeners are asked to repeat phrases using verbs that have not been presented. In the very beginning your asked to conjugate the verb Etre and then the following sentences are all around the verb Aller.2. Although I was looking to push myself to recall words faster the book does not provide enough time after the English instructions for students to try an answer before the French response.3. The amount of time given for students to repeat and or practice what they've heard is too short or nonexistent. But what worse is that the time is inconsistent.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Frobose again?

I was optimistic about the book and so I purchased bother Power Verbs 1 and 2. So I will listen to Power Verbs 2 in hopes that they've done a better job.

Great Review

This is a great review book for the advanced beginner or early intermediate. It would be very confusing for a strictly beginner, as there are some grammar comcepts that are used but not thoroughly not explained. But, if you have some background knowledge, this book works well as a review.

Very good

I was starting from near absolute beginner level.
He repeats words and sentences enough times to really hear them properly which gives you a chance at remembering them. Enough different tenses are covered for this level. It gives you something to build on so hopefully the tables of verb endings will have more meaning.

Customer service non existent

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The author describes himself as America's most trusted language teacher. However, altho his website promises to respond to queries within 48 hours I sent in two queries weeks ago (an initial query and a follow up) and both were completely ignored.
