Berlitz Self-Teacher: French
In th is book you will find series of oral exercises, exercise to make you think in your new language, and improve your comprehension, and getting more fluency, consolidate your foundation.
Here is a part of the content, with different topics, with words in French and their translation into English:
–Leçon 1. Qu’est-ce que c’est ? (what is this?): le crayon (the pencil), le livre (the book), le papier (the paper), la plume (the pen), non monsieur ce n’est pas la boîte c’est le crayon (no, sir, it is not the box, it is the pencil)… Then, there si the ‘Thinking in French’ part, with the guideline ‘Answer the following questions aloud, then write the answers and check them in the key beginning on page 248’. You will see several questions with different pictures facing them, the questions are: Est-ce le livre ? (Is this the book? ), Est-ce le crayon ? (Is this the pencil? ), Est-ce la table ? (Is this the table?), Qu’est-ce que c’est ? (What is this?), you have to say the correct answer. It is a machine learning, it is very efficient to improve your language skills, particularly with short question and short answers, the brain will not make almost any efforts to get the French language.
–Leçon 2. Les vêtements (Clothing): Qu’est-ce que c’est ? (what is this?), c’est le chapeau (this is the hat), la chemise (the shirt), le pantalon (the trousers), la robe (the dress), le sac (the handbag), la montre (the watch),…It contains as well, like all the courses, the ‘Thinking in French’ part.
It is a good book, a good approach to learn French quickly. It is very useful and easy to go through, and clear. This is a nice way to start approaching the French language, if you do that on your own and if you can read english already. It is one of the good texbooks to learn a lot and basic grammar fast. It does not have deep grammar explanations, it is more focused on speak through talks. I suggest you to use it everyday and to do all the exercises. When you buy it,it ca comes with CDs.
Total French Foundation Course: Learn French with the Michel Thomas Method
A famous one among the French textbooks. It comes with CDs (to improve your speaking skills). During these course, you will join Michel (the founder of this method) and two persons, they will tell you about their successes and their confusion, the steps they went through in their learning journey, so you can imagine the steps you will find on your road and the mistakes to avoid to get better at speaking the French language. So, you are the last person (the fourth one) and you are active like the others persons. You will have questions to answer and the time to do it, so the learning is easy. You can download the content of the disk and having it with you everywhere: at home or on the move, in your car with an MP3,… and almost everytime: while running, while walking down the street,… I suggest you to do it on a daily basis. It uses the repetition a lot, do it, do not think too much, try to learn automatically, with your unconscious. The word-stock grows very quickly.
Here are reviews:
‘I have learnt the French language at school but I have never really felt confident to speak it and this approach is amazing I think that if I use it well, in a good way, I will be fluent in French’
‘It is an easy to follow book. A few time after you begin the first lesson you have to make your own sentences!’
French in 10 Minutes a Day
It contains an oral guide that makes learning French simple and amusing. It focuses on words and sentences we use in the everyday life (for different topics), you are going to learn the words for travelling, to order food in a restaurant, to greet people and to find where you want to go. You can take just 10 minutes everyday to do your exercise, so it is not too much time, I am sure you can find 10 minutes everyday to learn your target language (the French language). Do it at your own rythm, review everything you need to review to feel comfortable with, before going to the next step. You are going to learn how to make questions, you are going to learn the numbers as well, so you will be able to ask whatever you want (the way for your destiantion,…), to go shopping and to pay easily whatever you want. It contains 132 pages with illustrations. It comes with a software so you can study on your computer (PC and Mac). It contains flashcards as well, the phonetic for the French words, a list of more than 2000 words.
