Very clever method, very useful book

I bought this audio book on a whim as I have wanted to learn French for a while - even though I dropped it a 'O'-level in 1976. I had always found French lessons hard work - this book opened my eyes to how simple it can be: 60% of the English vocabulary is broadly the same as French - how cool is that? One immediately has a significant French vocabulary. Very clear method and I find myself enjoying it - and I can speak half reasonable conversational French within a couple of days.
Highly recommended .

At last, a language course that worked...

My wife struggled and struggled with various French courses, both at adult classes and also with several video and/or audiobook sets. Nothing worked for her until I bought her the Michel Thomas course. His approach is quite different from other courses and enabled her, for the first time, not only to communicate with others in French but to enjoy the learning process. I'd recommend it to anyone who has tried other courses only to give up.
