Mixed feelings about this language learning

While I appreciated this intro, it didn't make me want to buy the full course. I was looking to brush up French from 40 years ago and this was too basic and pretty boring. That said, it is certainly an approach that works for some folks. And if I was a total novice, it might have been better.

this is 1/8 of the course, why is it so expensive?

this book is incomplete. it barely contains one complete lesson, let alone a whole books worth. i don't understand why they're charging one credit or ~15 dollars for it.

Repetition

Excessive repetition was almost annoying but can confidently say that I won't forget a word.

We are learning French the affordable audible.com

Where does French Phase 1, Unit 01 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really like these Pimsleur lessons. Having never taken French before, it is interesting to try this and I am glad they take the words apart or I would miss some of the sounds.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Monsieur I believe. He sounds a bit stuffy?

Which scene was your favorite?

We have only been doing the first part.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. We did Unit 1 and it was just right for a cup of tea and new language.

Any additional comments?

I find these relaxing.

Excellent!

What did you love best about French Phase 1, Unit 01?

I was not very good at languages at school and always found it difficult. The way Pimsleur teaches you to learn French is a brilliant method that I wish my school teachers had known. They teach you through conversation and repetition at just the right moment for maximum retention and recall. It is interesting and a great way to practice speaking French out loud. I would recommend it to any beginners wanting to learn French for the first time.

Boring Way to Learn French

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed, partly because of the lack of adequate explanations.

Any additional comments?

I downloaded this when I was exploring programs for learning French and was immediately turned off. It expects the learner to learn by rote. I was also even a bit bored; consequently, I didn't continue with the program.

For those of us who are visual learners, Pimsleur offers no written French, and we don't learn to read the language. This also means that when we travel to a French country we are handicapped as we will have trouble reading what we need to read. French has many silent letters that we are unaware of with the Pimsleur approach and that we won't recognize when we see them.

Pimsleur Phase 1 Unit 1

Took a college french class and no one could understand a work I said in French at the end of the class. This helped me say the words and not worry about spelling or grammar. The french have an annoying way of not pronouncing the end of most words and conjugated verbs all sound alike to me. Pimsleur just put them in sentences I could understand then reviewed them often. This worked out so well I eventually bought Phase 1, 2 and 3. Now I can actually carry on a very basic conversation and understand a fair amount of conversation in french. I did listen to each section every day and sometimes repeated the section. French does not sink into your head automatically, but if you just listen and repeat lessons each day it is pretty amazing what sticks. I did dishes, laundry, went to the market or ran errands while listening. Made boring chores more interesting and learned basic French.

Excellent

I was skeptical of the claim that this method would somehow be better than all the rest but I really did end up comprehending and retaining much more for much longer than I did in the past and the vocabulary came to mind when prompted with less effort.

Easy to learn

This way of teaching/learning is awesome. I have learned what I feel is great new sentences in a matter of minutes. Of course I will listen to it again to pick it up easier and faster. I feel like I learned at least 75% of what was taught to me. the most difficult thing is pronunciation with an accent. You almost have to slur. I could probably ace this if I was drunk lol.
