Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

French is an official language in 44 countries. It is spoken by 55 million people in France, 3 million in Belgium, 1.5 million in Switzerland, 6.5 million in Canada, and 5 million in former French + Belgian colonies. It is also an official language of the U.N.

Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes with Pimsleur it’s that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. French Phase 2 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completing Phase 1.

  • In the first 10 lessons of Phase 2, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex and informal speech is introduced. Conversations become fuller, and learners are able to discuss business and social activities, manage shopping situations, and express their interests. As you progress, vocabulary is expanded and fluency increases.
  • The next 10 lessons of Phase 2 allow you to further combine and build upon known elements, and produce longer and more complex sentences. You learn to bargain with shopkeepers, deal with business situation, get and give medical information, and discuss the weather.
  • In the final 10 lessons of Phase 2, you’ve doubled your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You’ll gain experience asking for assistance, finding a location that is some distance away, and using relative structures – faster, slower, etc. Sports and leisure activities are explored, as well as shopping, changing money, and future travel plans. By the end of Phase 2, you’re speaking at a midintermediate level with nearnative pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading French, and to provide you with some insight into French culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at things you’ll see when visiting a Frenchspeaking country. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Comments about French Phase 2, Units 1-30:

All the things I was not too happy about French Phase I were well covered in Phase II. I guess I needed to be a bit more patient. I am getting comfortable saying a few things in French. Definitely moving to Phase III!!!

Comments about French Phase 2, Units 1-30:

I had studied French for 3 years in high school, but it was mostly reading and learning words. With this course I am learning how to speak and understand French. It is of course easiest for people who have been exposed to French before, but I think everybody can learn a language with a lot of persistence, patience and daily practice.

    Comments about French Phase 2, Units 1-30:

    I have used many language approaches to become fluent in French . None compare to pimsleur . I am excited to do my lessons each day and love the interactive classes. There is no tedious writing. All I do is LEARN French ! And I love the fact that each lesson builds upon the previous lesson. Never before have 30 minutes been so much fun !

      Comments about French Phase 2, Units 1-30:

      I love French 2 that I listen to on my phone while walking and commuting. I have studied French a fair amount and was even an au pair in Paris, but can never seen to get what I know out fast enough. Now I find myself responding to the prompts correctly (more or less) without even thinking. I'm sure this is the way it has to be. Love it.

        It's surprisingly easy to learn the language using this program. I put the lessons on my phone and do them while hiking, jogging or driving. People sharing the trails & road with me must think I'm nuts when I shout French phrases as I go by, but it seems to work.
