3.0 out of 5 stars Audio could be better March 12, 2014
By Maria
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is ok.
What I mainly do not like about it is the audio.
It is set up so that the recording says something, it pauses for you to repeat, and then the recording continues. It would be easier for someone trying to learn if the pauses were more spaced out. For example, they say "Bonjour Marie" and pause. Then you are supposed to repeat that. That is easy enough and not really necessary in my opinion. Then they say a 13 word sentence and expect you to repeat all of that back. A pause in the middle of that long sentence would be much more helpful than a pause after Bonjour!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Supplement Guide to Leaning French September 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought Rosetta Stone and I like it, but it doesn't explain any of the rules. (You're supposed to "absorb" the language). I was often left confused as to the how's and why's. French for Dummies has come in incredibly handy. I read the first three chapters and then I've randomly looked about if I have any questions. It's answered them all.

Probably not great on its own, but as a supplement to another learning system, it's great! They also offer some neat tricks to remembering some of the very confusing rules of French.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginning and intermediate students November 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish I had had this book when I started French lessons, several years ago. It explains the rules of French grammar in very simple, understandable, terms. It covers everything you need to assist you in learning to speak and write French well. It explains the many nuances in the French sentence structure, which makes understanding the language easier. It's a great reference to use when you are taking French lessons!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Audio September 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I did not proceed to far into this manual because the audio version is not available on the noted website, and the help site is a nightmare to navigate to see where to locate the audio files. Sent back for a refund. Purchased at store

I bought this so I could try to help my daughter with her French class so keep in mind I don't take French class at school like she does. This seems a bit hard for me to follow. Audio CD's work much better for me. This does have Audio which has both fast (normal speed) and slowed down a bit. I will finish the book but it will take time and I hope to find someone to help. Maybe if I took a French class this would be a big help. If you are serious about learning French I would get this book though. It has a lot of good info.

While it's a big book, it's a little hard to follow. I'm not too thrilled with the format, however, it has a lot of the French language to cover.
