Stop singing!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I read the reviews before I used my credit and was eager to listen and get started learning French. All went well and it's all very well singing along to the words you know already.


What could Howard Beckerman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

When the story introduces new phrases / sentences they are sung like Edith Piaf and I can't understand what they are saying (singing) the whole phrase rolls over into one long sound without breaking it down.
I get the catchy songs to help you to remember but let's learn the words first.


Would you be willing to try another one of Howard Beckerman’s performances?

I don't know


Do you think Rush Hour French needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not in the format it is. It needs tweaking and don't rush into singing songs without being able to ensure the listener has got a grip of the words first. Break them down so they can be mixed and matched with other sentences, questions etc. This is the only frustrating part of the book and sometimes I can't even decifer what letter the words begin with.


Any additional comments?

I'm going to look for another book.
