So easy and perfect!

If you could sum up Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 1 in three words, what would they be?

So grateful for finding these books. I can't wait to start the 2nd in the French series. I am constantly doing long drives and have taken up learning French to make use of my time spent in the car. This teaching style is so effective, I'm so excited!

Great approach to learning French!

Any additional comments?

This method presents French in a very accessible & rational way. He starts with some basic vocabulary and sentence structure and builds on it with (mostly) words that both French & English have in common. (The French-English words only vary by pronunciation and slight spelling differences.) He also gives helpful connections between words that are not of shared origin. This makes for learning through 'absorbing' rather than memorizing. And all of the vocabulary feels relevant. You can tell there was a lot of thought put into the material presented. The author narrates in a nice friendly voice and all of the French is spoken by a native speaker. I've bought the other audiobooks in the series and am finding them very beneficial.
