Comments about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

This is my 3rd language course.

I've used Pimsleur since 1998 (cassettes). I lived in Brazil and use Portuguese 1 & II. It was a great help and provided a good foundation on pronunciation.

When I move back to USA, I took 1 & 2 Spanish (CD's). I travel to Latin America 3-4 times a year. I can always communicate. Probably not fluent, but I can take care of what I need to .

Now, I found out that I was going to Paris for a week, so I thought I would try Pimsleur French. (MP3). I had about 4 weeks notice that I would be traveling to France, so I started with lessons 1-5. I then bought lessons 6-10. I'm only on lesson 9, but I think it will be worthwhile, just so I can get by with some basic communication. I will probably buy lessons 11-15 and then will probably be through with French.

I like the way I can purchase 5 lessons at a time. This may be my one and only trip to France, so when I return, I will probably not continue with the French courses.

I have never regretted any of the money I've spent nor the time I invested in Pimsleur.

    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.

        Comments about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

        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!

          Comments about French Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

          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!
