The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! English for French Speakers Phase 1, Lessons 1-30 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons begin in Unit 9 and provide you with an introduction to reading English. In addition, combined Reading Lessons from all the units are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, will provide you with an introduction to reading the English alphabet, sounding out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    Comments about ESL French Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    The courses of Pimsleur are simply the best on the market. I've tried several other courses, but the way Pimsleur does it is so motivating that you are happy to get in the car and start learning a foreign language. My native language is dutch, but I understand a little english. I started to learn Spanish with Pimsleur just 2 years ago. After a few months of speaking in my car, I went to Barcelona. The people there thought I lived there. The courses of Pimsleur are the fastest way to learn to speak, because you have to. So, last year I started to learn French and guess what? I was in Paris a month ago and I didn't need to use any English to make me understandable. Now I started to learn to speak English with Pimsleur out of French. And yes, indeed, I already understood English pretty well but to speak is something else. I just feel after the first phase Anglais i'll speak English more fluently. I can't wait for the following phases.

    I am French, and I learnt English a few years ago, only with books. So I bought Pimsleur to improve my listening and my pronunciation. It has been very effective!
