Publisher's Summary

2 Books in 1! Learn 2 Languages with 1 book!

Are you looking for the best way to learn French? Well, look no further. This book is, simply put, the best on the market for learning French. Why do I say that? Because this book does what language books should do - teach you the mechanics of the language, not a bunch of tourist trap phrases that you'll forget the second you leave the country.

If books don't do that, then they make the critical mistake of going into far too much detail and managing to bore you half to death by virtue of the fact that they've spent so much time going on about three different kinds of articles. I don't do that either.

Learn Spanish: A Fast and Easy Guide for Beginners to Learn Conversational Spanish

Let's face it: the language market is changing. English has been the lingua franca for a while now, but it's not going to always be that way. It's projected that Chinese or Spanish might take over the English language as the lingua franca in the next century. So it makes sense that you're searching this book: Spanish is an in-demand language to know. By knowing Spanish, you're opening the door to communication with hundreds of millions of more people than you could speak with before. This makes you a desirable asset to a great number of companies and makes you an all around more well-rounded person.

I'm not certain why you picked this book up. It could be general curiosity about Spanish, or you may be going on a trip and needing a crash course in Spanish before you do. Regardless of what your intent is, the key fact is that you're looking for the best possible way to learn Spanish while getting the best bang for your buck, too. This book is everything you're looking for.

This book may be short, but it absolutely does not skimp on the important topics. By the end of the book, you'll be understanding of many of the core concepts of basic conversational Spanish.

Focused in on the most common phrases

"I loved that it was focused in on the most common phrases, and teaching them in the context of sentences! If you'd prefer to sit down with a book to read and learn vocabulary, this would be a good jump start into learning critical words then going on to listen stories afterwards, with the knowledge you've gotten."

A very detailed pronunciation guide

"There was a very detailed pronunciation guide/table provided in the first few chapters. I was slightly confused on a couple of the rules, but barring that, the plethora of everyday French phrases provided in subsequent chapters as well as their concise pronunciation guide helped me learn a lot! I used to never know which syllables would run together or which vowels to stress, but their pronunciation guide's English pronunciation was supremely helpful."

A great introduction

"This is a great introduction to common words and phrases. I like how each entry give examples of how the word is used in everyday language. The offerings range from intro to advanced (y and en), which are typically challenging in an academic setting."

Appreciated the context sentence examples

"I appreciated the context sentence examples, that also were full of high frequency phrases, so listening the whole book was very reinforcing of the information. I've seen websites before with frequency lists of phrases, and this was a more approachable structured way to go through studying those kinds of phrases."

I’m getting exactly what I hoped for

"I turned to this book for help with phrases and pronunciation, and I’m getting exactly what I hoped for. The nonchalant tone of the author helped me learn more without getting overwhelmed. A lot of language books will simply list the pronunciations of words/letters and it ends up feeling like some sterile rule book. But a lot of the lessons end with something like “don’t worry, you got this”. It actually helps! There was even some information about the French lifestyle, like taboos and (my favorite) food."

I found a lot to love about this book

"I found a lot to love about this book. For an absolute beginner, like myself, there are a couple of very useful features. Firstly, there’s a detailed pronunciation guide, and it tells you more than the sound of the letters. For example, it draws parallels between English sounds and French sounds, and it teaches you tricks for remembering when a letter is silent. If that’s not enough, there’s a link to a free, downloadable French language pack – and if you follow the author on Facebook, he provides additional support with daily words and expressions."

His book is very concise and specific

"I really enjoyed this French phrase book. I have been struggling for some time to find a book or another relevant resource that thoroughly explains French pronunciation rules. This book is very concise and specific in teaching its readers on how to pronounce hard-to-sound-out words and phrases."

"Wonderful book "

"I'm only half way through the first book, but so far it has been great. I've taken several beginning Spanish courses over my lifetime and none of it stuck, but I feel like the design of this course is a lot better because, contrary to what one said, they do NOT just give you a list of words to memorize. You are shown words which will be emphasized in a lesson, but they are presented in context in a variety of ways."

Very Informative

"As an introduction into learning the Spanish language (which is the official language of about 25 countries), I personally find the work done to be very informative and educational. Yet at the same time, very fun and interesting. The reason I say this, is it a great idea to know some words of another language, other than my native language, English."

Quality content and narration!

"I have always had french classes in my youth and somehow I retained a lot of the basic grammar, which helped in the easy way I swept through the first couple of chapters in Easy French. A big chunk of the chapters are dedicated to the present tense conjugations and a lot of introductions to many verbs and their conjugations."

An excellent book for beginners!

"This book was very helpful. It has proven to be a great resource for reviewing the material I learned. I'm not sure how easy it would be for someone to use this book if they don't know any French at all, but I find it very helpful for reviewing purposes!"

I listen this book so truly.

"This is one of the best French grammar books in its price range on the market. It's made up of short lessons that build upon themselves and exercises that reinforce the material. The content is straight-forward, and the examples used are sufficient in showing application of grammar by context."

"Everything written in this book makes sense "

"This book helped so much for my french class, especially explaining grammatical rules for the direct and indirect object pronouns. If you're learning french and don't feel you are truly grasping some concept or if you want to brush up on your french skills just a bit, I think this book is a great buy."

I highly recommend this audio book

"The book goes into masculine and feminine nouns and different endings for them, also introduces regular -ir, -er, and -re verbs and also irregular verbs such as etre, faire, aller, and many more. The grammatical topics it covers are the passe compose, imparfait, present tense of course, the plu perfect and I feel one other future tense. It also covers negation, how to ask questions, and how to structure sentences appropriately such as the correct placement of the noun, verb, and adjective in a french sentence."

Definitely recommend it.

"I love this book it feels like a real French course. Although I would never call it easy because you have to memorize words, learn and understand verb tenses, gender, and grammar technicalities such as working with definitive and and indefinite articles, etc. I’m only on chapter 3 but I’m finding that I am retaining much of what I’m learning."
