My 2-year old girl loves this book.
Fiction Pilot
First 1000 Words is listed as a children's book to aid in learning French but this is also an excellent book to help adults learn French.

This is a fun book and a really fun way to learn vocabulary.

This book is incredibly helpful from children ages 6 all the way up to adults. You can be in French 1 in high school or AP French in college. No matter which way you go, this book helps you review for all the common French words that no tourist should be without. What's that word for watermelon? How about bathroom? Oh, dang, I forgot how to say tooth! Well, just review the pages of this book and its cute little pictures, and you'll remember in no time. It's also great if you're trying to teach young children their 2nd language, which I recommend, because children learn easier. This book will be fun for them, and for you to brush up on your French!

My 2-year old girl loves this book. I am originally French and want my daughter to be fluent. I speak to her exclusively in French but there are a lot of words that one tends to miss in day-to-day conversation. This book has helped me tremendously to build up her vocabulary. Each page features a different theme (School, Farm, Garden...) She likes to select the page herself and identify all that she knows in the illustration. There are also "action verbs", "opposites" etc. It features a lot more than I thought. I bought a similar book in France last year but get much more use out of this one.

First 1000 Words is listed as a children's book to aid in learning French but this is also an excellent book to help adults learn French. The drawings of objects along with their French names enables the student to essentially "skip the middle man" of thinking through the English word and the student begins thinking in French. Additionally the phonetic pronunciations and English counterparts are listed in the back of the book to clear up any possible confusion. First 1000 Words is great for children, adults, and children learning French with adults!

This is a fun book and a really fun way to learn vocabulary. I purchased the book to use my daughter to learn vocabulary. I specifically purchased this book because the vocabulary is in French and so my daughter can't read the vocabulary words. That is exactly the point. She has to really look and learn what it is she is looking at and then describe the picture. A different way to use this book but one that has proven to help her successfully learn new vocabulary and descriptions. Her own creative descriptions.

I have taken teaching my kids French very seriously since we are moving there in 2 years. This book is great! The internet pronunciation insures everyone learns the words correctly and all my kids think this book is fun(13 month twins and 8 yr old). On top of all that the price is great value for money when you realize how much learning potential is there.

Excellent book and if you have internet, you can listen to the pronunciation. It is good for improving vocabulary.
It would be super if there is another supplementary book on how to use the vocabulary. Highly recommended ! First Thousand Words in French

This is the very best "getting started" book I've seen. It's funny and useful with words that help any learner (child or adult) navigate the every-day world. The internet-based pronunciation guide featuring native speakers is great.

Even as an adult, I like the 'childish' type of writing and explainations. It allows me to learn nouns. Thanks
