Publisher's Summary

The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn French

Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning French will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The exceptional thing about Pimsleur's French 1 is that in just 30 minutes a day for only one month, you can learn how to introduce yourself and get to know people, to order food in a restaurant, to ask directions, to go shopping - and that’s just the start. The scientifically-proven method teaches you on a deeper level than just drills of vocabulary, so that you can keep learning with every conversation you have. The very best part is that your accent - as you order a drink or inquire about someone’s job or family - will be authentically French. And you, having heard and responded to French as part of your daily practice, will be better prepared to understand not only the words taught in the course, but to make an educated guess at words you’ve never heard before.

What You’ll Learn

With this newest edition of French 1, we reflect the general trend in France toward casual interaction and have updated vocabulary and structures. What you are learning is neither stilted “textbook” French, nor “street” French, but rather everyday French as spoken in France. 

In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
