Publisher's Summary

You're about to discover over 1000 French verbs exemplified in French & English sentences.
Learning a new language is never an easy task, but it doesn't have to be hard. By learning the 1000 most used verbs in a language, you give yourself a fantastic foundation to start building upon to your road to fluency.
In my audiobook, 1000 French Verbs in context, I give you over 1000 of the most common French verbs used today. You are given the verb in French and English with examples of the verb in a sentence, also in French and English. No more confusion about how to use the verb.
One thousand words are a perfect number to aim for. It is important to give yourself goals to stay motivated and to keep yourself learning. Imagine if you learnt 10 words a day. Five in the morning and five at night. After only 100 days ( that's just over three months), you would have access to 1000 verbs in your vocabulary. That really is quite a lot and would give you an excellent grasp of the language.
Far too many people expect to be speaking a new language far too quickly without putting in the time or effort. As a language teacher, I can testify to seeing this too many times. I can also say that by exposing yourself to a new language daily, you will surely learn it. It does take time and effort but 10 words a day will give you a massive boost. If you prefer a slower pace, then you could set yourself different goals.
The key to learning new vocabulary is to see it in context, that means in use. Seeing how it's used will help you remember the word a lot better. It is also important to understand how that word should be used in a sentence.

Low Frequency – Power French is Better

Any additional comments?

In order to get an idea of how low frequency some of the material in 1000 French Verbs in Context is, just listen to the audio sample.
“He lighted the way by opening the windows”.
Then they go even lower in usability by using the “passé simple” which is only used in literature and never in everyday speech.
I would recommend Power French Verbs 1 & 2 if you really want to use high frequency verbs in real daily conversation.

Practice your French

What made the experience of listening to 1000 French Verbs in Context the most enjoyable?

I liked how the audiobook was organized-each chapter contains verbs starting with a different letter. This allows the listener to jump from letter to letter, using the chapter number as a guide. I also liked that the pattern was: French verb/English translation/French Sentence/English translation
