The format of the first CD is great. You learn the basics of French - first and foremost being the masculine/feminine differences, when to use and how to say things like un, une, le, la, l', and so on. They talk about things that you would see while you're out driving so you're learning about trucks, cars, bicycles, big, small, houses, some colours, etc. Each section is broken down with lots of opportunity for you to repeat the French. You also learn how to string some sentences together (the car is big, my car is beautiful). Overall, I was happy with the structure and format of the first CD.
Enter, the second CD. The format is completely different. Gone are the baby steps to help you get a handle on things (it is, after all BEGINNER French). This CD starts throwing grammar, sentence structure, and what I would consider slightly more intermediate French at you. The pace is faster, and some things are difficult to understand. My initial reaction was to eject the CD and throw it out the window, I was so disappointed with the dramatic format change.
However, I've kept re-playing it and it is slowly sinking in. Patience pays off, as I can understand more with each replay. Trouble is, I don't feel like I'm learning as quickly or as well as I was with the first CD. All in all, this series was a disappointment and is not for me.
I even wake up in the morning remembering what l have learn on the day before.
Recommended to all who want to learn a lanugage fast

Wonderful course requiring no prior knowledge of the language. Would recommend you have a French dictionary at hand. Can't wait to visit Paris and parle Francais.Published 22 months ago by vera
I hate French! I enjoy show tunes and Jimmy Buffet. Lucky I'm not planning any French trips but maybe a beach trip an I'll speak Jimmy Buffet.Published 23 months ago by Julie Sandberg
Completely agree with the others, the first CD is great, I was learning French, then put in the second CD and it is like a whole different program! Completely useless. Read morePublished on January 11, 2013 by Mamazon
I bought this because I wanted to re-engage my French skills during the time I was in the car. This disc is specifically formatted for hands-free activities. Read morePublished on April 1, 2011 by Dr. Girlfriend
