Publisher Description:

Now a BESTSELLER, this book is an introduction to basic French, focusing on repetition and pronunciation. This book contains 5 units teaching simple phrases, conversation and vocabulary. Topics include: greetings, fruit and shopping, family members, farm animals, school.

So you have studied a foreign language for several years. Suppose you get the opportunity to visit a foreign country and put your skills to the test. Are you excited, or do you feel a little nervous? Will native speakers really be able to understand what you're trying to say? Well, the goal of this program is to get you sounding like a native speaker while teaching simple phrases you'll probably have occasion to use. Please note that this is not a complete program. You won't get specific lessons on grammar, syntax, writing or reading comprehension. However, you will learn correct pronunciation, practical vocabulary, and basic conversational skills with a full 10-15 minutes of speaking practice a day.

Each program consists of a spiral-bound book containing 50-55 pages and an audio CD. Also available separately are the (non-reproducible) black and white student workbooks, with written exercises corresponding to the lessons in the textbook. The workbook exercises tend to focus on writing and translating sentences and phrases, plus fill-in-the-blank and word search activities (answers included). In each unit, new vocabulary (and the sentences and questions you can make using that vocabulary) is introduced. The book contains colorful pictures and English translations next to the French or Spanish phrases and sentences. Instructions are given in English, but everything else you'll hear and be asked to repeat, will be in the foreign language. It is recommended that you repeat each unit once for 9 days before going onto the next unit.

Each book is divided into five units. Program one introduces greetings and numbers, fruits and colors, family, farm animals, and school words. Program two covers vegetables, days, months, numbers to thirty and dates, facial features and body parts, weather and seasons, and breakfast and lunch foods and conversation. Program three focuses on sports, wild animals and geographical features, places in the city, place settings and meals, and items of clothing. Program four features marine animals, rooms in a house, continents and countries, transportation, and zoo animals. Verbs and questions that go along with each topic are also introduced and used. Though I've only worked through Unit 1 myself, this seems like a really easy program to implement. With consistent use, you can develop a better "ear" for listening to and understanding spoken languages and gain increased confidence in speaking them yourself. ~ Anh

My 5 year old daughter learns French

Previewed this text through a friend. It's simple and teaches very useful phrases and vocabulary. The CD speaks rapidly, but I speak french fairly well so I just read the text for her to repeat. Perfect for my first grader. We wont bother with buying the workbooks until her writing skills become better.

Is it appealing for a High School Freshman? My daughter wants to learn French, she already knows Spanish and English. Thank you! :)
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the student. Because of the illustrations, some might think it is a bit young, but my 16 year old thinks it is fine for teens. It can feel repetitive, and boring at times, because you are suppose to repeat the same lesson for several days before moving on, but it is effective. We combined it with Memoria Press' First Start French and are happy with both products.
