      Comments about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

      I like to walk several hours at a time, and I study languages while doing so. I bought Mandarin, Spanish, and am now studying French, having completed unit 29 of French II. I listen to each unit twice and try to complete two units a day. It is very enjoyable knowing I will be able to converse on a rudimentary level with the natives. BUT IT COULD BE BETTER. Especially in French, the pronunciation is complicated. The form of the verbs sound the same but are sealed differently. I think it would be helpful if, in your reading lessons you tracked the pronunciations OF THE WORDS AND THEIR FORMS USED IN THE LESSON. voudrais vs voudrez, e.g.

          Hands down best language learning software out there. Pimsleur suggests one lesson a day for 30 minutes, I've done 2 because of how well I've been able to follow along. Knowing Spanish is helpful in my case as there are few similarities. I listen through Android app so very convenient. Thanks!

            I have 4 months to prepare for my trip to France, and the Pimsleur product is outstanding. En route to work each day, I listen and practice my conversational French. Just barely into the system, I am already able to carry on a brief conversation. The program also focuses on courtesies in a foreign country, as well as matters of safety. Conversations evolve from there. The program is crafted in a way that the listener can immediately begin speaking the language without a lot of complicated explanations. Brilliant!

              Comments about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

              I listen to the mp3 courses in the car and ( at times)at work. I have a long commute & I feel like it is good use of my time. I have the course on my phone (mp3 format) and also listen while I am folding laundry, walking around the grocery store, and cooking! The format is very easy and they don't bombard you with grammar. Instead, it is gradually introduced. I have noticed that I can anticipate the grammar of a sentence before it is even spoken in French! I took four years of German in jr high & high school & feel like I know waaay more French in four weeks! Also, it is nice to be able to go at your own pace, so if you have a lesson you are not quite "getting," you can replay it for a few days even until it's "in there!" Wonderful product!
