Publisher's Summary

Would you like to try a new way of learning French? Are you tired of the traditional methods teachers tell you to use? What if we told you there is a better way of learning French and expanding your vocabulary to unprecedented levels? Well, guess what? There is! One of the best ways to learn French is by using practical conversation guides. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the Internet. That's exactly why we created this book.

French phrases + pronunciation guide = faster learning.

We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language if you use pronunciation guides as a shortcut. Pronunciation guides allow you to make use of a certain "pronunciation clue" and without realizing it, you will be speaking almost perfect French. This will in time allow you to expand your vocabulary quickly, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the French language. Practical conversation guides work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the different sections we've prepared for you, you will learn French with much less struggle! Your goal is to simply focus on a section at a time. Each chapter takes on multiple topics, including tips on how to build rapport with others, grocery shopping, and asking for directions, just to name a few. We wanted these sections to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

I never thought I would enjoy learning French!

Would you listen to Practical French for Beginners again? Why?

This is the kind of audiobook that you have to listen to and again. You learn more each time you listen for even just a while. It is a good way of practicing a certain language til you get used to it an eventually get fluent in the said language. No wonder why this audiobook is selling pretty good. I heard a lot about this from my friends which is why I decided to get a copy too.

Enjoyed this!

What other book might you compare Practical French for Beginners to and why?

I tried listening to few language short audiobook before. I think those were by the Language Academy. They were both very good in language translation. I recommend to use this book first and learn even just the basics of a certain language and then practice the language by listening to stories. It is an effective way to learn fast. :)

Any additional comments?

This deserves perfect 5 stars! I learned the basics in no time!

Easy to use French guide!

I've read a lot of French language guide but I find this audiobook a lot more effective than all of them. This audiobook contains engliah-french translation of words, phrases and expressions. No need to read only listen and with that you learn the proper pronunciation of these words. Well done Lingo Academy!
