The Complete Idiot's Guide language audio programs are guaranteed to work for beginners, as a refresher course, and even with those who have been frustrated in other attempts to learn a foreign language. You can start learning today.
The readers spoke slowly so understanding and repetition were possible. The chosen vocabulary was all about travel and how to ask for drinks/meals... verb conjugation was not addressed, and most of the conversations used the vous form.

I have tried lots of language learning audio books that say they are for 'beginners' but soon after the first simple chapter, they generally jump into difficult vocabulary and useless phrases.
Idiot's is really for absolute beginners, and the repetition is great. The listening sample is quite long and gives a good taste of what's ahead. Also, there is a PDF of the whole book that you can download for free from Audible on the details page. Very nice touch.

Found this very usefull for my first visit to France and I listened to it on my way over. I even remembered words when I wasnt listening.
I think your mind listens even when your conciousness is not paying attention.
people are more welcoming when they noice you make an effort at learning their native tongue.

This is really an excellent approach to learning a language. I strongly recommend to download the attached pdf file to get the most of it. Au revoir.
