What you’ll learn:

Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur’s French Level 1.

In the first 10 lessons, you’ll begin using the past tense. Structures become more complex, and informal speech is introduced. Soon, you’ll take part in conversations about ordering meals, shopping, and local tourist attractions. As you progress, your fluency will increase as your vocabulary expands.

The next 10 lessons will allow you to further combine and build upon known elements and produce longer and more complex sentences. You’ll be discussing business and social activities, expressing your interests, and talking about the weather.

In the final 10 lessons, you’ll double your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You’ll learn to express yourself with relative structures - faster, slower, etc. You’ll be able to ask for assistance in many situations and to ask for directions to various locations. You’ll explore sports and leisure activities, manage changing money and banking, and discuss travel plans. By the end of the program, you’ll be speaking at a mid-intermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you’ll be comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

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, Pimsleur will help you learn French, expand your horizons, and enrich your life.

Slow and steady, judiciious repetition wins day

Finished level 1 and purchased this level 2; it continues appropriately at a higher level with the high quality Pimsleur methods. Continues with (1) introductions to appropriate vocabulary sensitively measured with appropriate gradations for the beginner as the course progresses; (2) absolutely perfect pronunciations by the speakers; (3) interesting conversationally oriented subject matter; (4) judicious repetitions of previously introduced material in different contexts; (5) helpful explanations for pronunciation; and (6) integrated and helpful but not completely necessary written .pdf materials.

As with level 1, this is perfect for commutes and very polished. Continued annoyances include too many nanny-like communications about what to do. On the whole another an excellent course worthy of five stars.
