I am only on lesson 5, but so far, Level 4 is a disappointment. Most of the dialogue involves book publishing, author's rights, issues about translations of novels, etc. Really! Who cares about that?! It has very little practical value for me as a tourist or even as a conversationalist. Levels 1-3 were much better in preparing one for normal conversations in French. We would be much better served, I believe if this level emphasized more situations involving travel, dining, shopping, or general conversation with acquaintances. If I had known the content of Level 4, I would not have spent the money.

Pimsleur French Plus

By LMorgan3

Comments about French, Plus:

Pluses and minuses - It's good practice, but I was disappointed that there weren't more discs. It seemed a bit brief.
The earlier levels I, II, IIIa & b have much more content.

      Comments about French, Plus:

      I use your programs in my car's CD player on the way to and from work. I think you're geniuses. I love the subject matter of the French Plus also since I am associated with a Bible publishing organization. I can't think of anything I don't like about it. Please don't change anything. Because of your programs, I'm now conversational in French and working on becoming fluent.

      Comments about French Phase 4, Units 1-10:

      This is the best program I've experienced for learning spoken French.

      Other tools are necessary, however, for learning to read and write French.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Pimsleur Italian Plus offers 30 lessons.

      Pimsleur French Plus should be upgraded from 10 lessons to 30 as well.

      I would also like to see a Pimsleur Russian Plus offered as well.
