Painfully dated

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is the original audio cassette program that was taped 30 years ago. No effort has been made to update any part of it; currency, weights and measures, social greetings

shouldn't there be a PDF with this?

What made the experience of listening to The Accelerated Learning French System the most enjoyable?

if you're new to french, this is not the book for you. i get the feeling over and over that there should be a PDF attached - the narrator mentions a "memory map" over and over to reference, i am pretty sure he is referring to something external that has photos. even the cheapest french audiobooks have pdfs, but this one does not. i can't help feeling like i am missing out on an important part of the learning system, as it is all laid out in a very systematic way that the narrator assures you will solidify the information in your memory by creating mental associations between the pictures and the words. i feel like i'm only getting half the product here.<br/>if you haven't learned at least some french already, i don't think that this will help you, because you will have trouble repeating things that are strung together quickly in french with nothing to look at to see what they are actually saying.

Who was your favorite character and why?

it's a french practice book, not fiction. i mean, there are narrated stories in french to help you learn, but they are pretty Dick and Jane, characters composed of useful vocabulary, not anything particularly compelling.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

definitely, french pronunciation is difficult!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Accelerated Learning French System

Overall great learning approach and format. One thing missing is a PDF of the written materials that is referred to throughout the recordings. It would be so helpful to have. Unknown why the document was not included or if it would be. Still, much French can be attained without it.

(1) Immersion method (2) Music!

There was almost no instruction. The music and "whispering" sections were practically inaudible and useless to me.

Ridiculous

Erm... am I missing something? The whole book is in French apart from the opening prologue. Are we supposed to be following a book at the same time? Lots of relaxation techniques and the background music is so loud you can't hear the speech anyway. Definitely the weirdest audio book I've ever attempted to listen to. Will be requesting a refund

The best language course I have come across

This is a great way to learn a language. By using Audible you can listen to the language wherever you may be, and with the ability to change the speed of the audio this is better than buying the CDs. The accompanying classical music at various stages of an act it is a calming way to learn a language. Each time you listen to the same act you gain a little bit more information until you fully understand or at least get the gist of the story. I have bought the accompanying book as I like to see the text as well as listen although most of my learning so far has been without the book as I'm usually learning on the go. Definitely worth downloading the free trial to see what you think!

This is a superb way to learn

If you could sum up The Accelerated Learning French System in three words, what would they be?

This is fantastic to learn from.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Accelerated Learning French System?

The pdf (which has finally been included) makes this one of the best ways of learning French on the planet.I cannot recommend it too highly.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The character and feel of the whole thing is enhanced by the audio and comlemented by the pdf file.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me want to go to France now to try out my French.

Any additional comments?

Get it and don't hesitate. If you want a full on immersion experience and added extras from beginner to intermediate, this is it.

Not useful

This comes without any book to download along side which makes completing the course impossible. I will look elsewhere to begin my attempt to learn French!
