      Comments about French Phases 1-2:

      I'd never heard of Pimsleur until a flashy Facebook ad caught my attention one night, advertising that I could learn to speak a foreign language in 30 days, for $10. I was skeptical but interested enough to give it a try. I was delighted from the very first lesson! I then tried ordering directly through Pimsleur.com so that I could easily download the lessons into my phone. I do the lessons while I walk the dog, drive my car, and when I have down time during business trips. At the completion of Phase 4, I intend to reward myself with a trip to France! I'm a big fan of Pimsleur!

        Comments about French Phases 1-2:

        My pronunciation is so much more accurate with this instruction than others. I love the pace of building success and I am not frustrated. I actually look forward to the daily session as opposed to dreading it which has happened for me in learning a new language in the past.

        Comments about French I-II:

        I listen to CDs every day on the way to work. They are very helpful and I like how they repeat sentences from previous lessons. I like the English speaker explaining the "rules". I do have difficulty understandin gthe directions of the French Speaker, but I guess that is a part of learning.
