Become a fluent speaker and understand in any situation with this follow-on course. I am a big big fan of the Michel Thomas Method and I would highly recommend his method at other levels and I wanted to take my learning with this method further on to Masterclass. Sadly I didn't find that the material added anything too new, mostly it is words and phrases Michel has already taught me in the Advanced level so I finished the 1st cd (of which there are only two) very quickly.

Reviews about Start French (Learn French with the Michel Thomas Method) (7):
Kanrad
This hour long intro session is a whirlwind of language learning, and provides what is missing in many language classes--the instant gratification of making a few sentences on your own, and discussion of the similarities in languages that can help you figure out what is going on.

I normally listen to language lessons while commuting in my car, but this hour long lesson is much too intense to do anything else. The hour does hover on information overload, and I had to break it up into 3 twenty minute sessions and will probably need to repeat these a few times. However, MIchel Thomas is so engaging that I look forward to repeating the lesson (and already bought the Total French series). I can't say I ever looked forward to repeating a Pimsleur session (sorry Pimsleur, I love you but Excitement is not your middle name).

You won't be fluent at the end of an hour, but you will understand more words than the standard one hour lesson of hello, goodbye, thank you, excuse me, and please. This method does not focus on pronunciation. For practicing pronunciation, I like Pimsleur method. To get used to 'real life' French in 'real time' speeds, look on the internet for free videos called 'French in Action', created by Pierre Capretz.

There is a secret to learning a new language, especially as an adult. Knowing this secret makes language learning accessible.

The secret is this - you only need to learn a few hundred phrases and maybe a thousand nouns and verbs to be conversational in any language - including Mandarin, or French, or Russian.

Once you realize that you only need a few hundred words and phrases to be able to travel, a few hundred more to be conversational, and maybe a thousand or two for "fluency" - the task does not seem that hard. Start by learning where is, how do I, I don't know, what is, what is this, that, and so forth - learn some nouns and verbs, then start to put it together.

Michele Thomas may or may not have formulated this course with that knowledge, but this course fits in with the method I describe.

With this simple purchase and few dozen words you'll learn well, you can form the foundation of travel French. Get the full course and I cannot imagine learning anything but good conversational French, or Italian, or any other language you want to learn.

Think about the scope of language and understand you're only learning a few hundred words to start - think about all of the dialogue from movies you've memorized, all the words from songs you've memorized - without even trying.

Make it work.

I recently traveled to France and I listened to this CD for two months prior to my arrival there. I had no trouble with basic communicating in French even when the person I was talking with did not speak English. I did have 4 years of French in HS so it was a really great refresher for me but that was many decades ago. I would highly recommend this CD

Michel's method makes learning easy.
The cd's bring you into his discussion group where you are taught everything from common phrases to complex conjugations. The intro tape leverages the French words you may know, "Comme si comme sa" and builds them into sentences that you can easily create-building your confidence immediately.
His teaching style insists there is no memorization and he provides thoughtful connections to support your quick learning; "the verb to go is 'aller' this is where the English work alley comes from."
You become part of the classroom experience with 2 other students; one that appears to be catching on quite well and the other that seems to require more support.
There are a few things to prepare for:
1. You need to be alone with no distractions-my daily commute worked well for me
2.You need to be able to "pause" your cd. He will ask you to translate a phrase and you need to pause to work through it. The tape does not grant you time to think.
3. Follow the process, don't rewind and go back. Michele will frequently press for you to remember items from previous tracks, keeping your learnings top of mind.
Heading to France in a month, I feel confident that I will be able to communicate and feel comfortable on my first trip to Paris!

Held off on buying this for over a year because we were using Rosetta stone for home schooling. I am so mad at myself for not getting this sooner. My kids were able to start basic sentences and were excited about learning after just using this starter CD. It requires just listening, no writing or books. Even I learned s few things about pronunciation a syntax and I have studied French for years and my husband is a native French speaker.

This is just a very short introduction to the Michel Thomas method. I'd suggest you just go for the Total French program that includes these Start French lessons. It's an excellent system that will have you speaking French faster than you thought possible.
Eayaroler
This is immersion French. Really appreciate the way the author just jumps right in with French words and gives the student a sense of being confident that you can do it. Needs to be repeated several times to get the ease the students on the CD have. Will look for next level by this teacher for more depth.
I haven't traveled yet, so I can't tell you how I'll do in a French speaking country, but so far, it's très bon!
