I’ve been listening to a number of French language audio CDs over the past year. It is a crowded field. I’m not complaining, because they are all good in different ways, but this is my current favorite. I have been listening to these two short CDs for weeks at 5-10 minute intervals driving my car. The 700 phrases are spoken in English and then repeated in French. The voices (male and female) that repeat the English phrases in French are very clear. The simplicity of the presentation will likely catch you off guard if you are used to listening to cutesy music or sound effect gimmicks in other language packages. This straightforward presentation is precisely why the material is easy to listen to again and again. It is what it is: Useful English phrases and their French equivalency. There is the obligatory booklet, but it repeats all the words and phrases exactly as they are heard on the two discs. So it is very easy to check what you have heard later on (as I need to). The packaging is slim and easy to slip into my jacket side pocket. When I have mastered these phrases I won’t be reading Camus or Proust, but I will be appreciative. Maybe the producers should consider a sequel.

Tres bien!

I really love this cd because it is so convenient to play in the car and they alternate the words and phrases in English and French. I appreciate the fact that they included a booklet that has the information in it so you can read along as well (just not while you’re driving of course!). It is good for anyone who wants to learn the basics- nothing too complicated and if you really apply yourself you will make some progress. I can vouch for that since before this cd I did not speak ONE WORD of French lol.
