Gives a lot of practice on the practical of getting around in a French speaking country. I asked my daughter, a high school student who is very smart and has been taking French for five years, a few of the questions from this series and she couldn't come up with the answer. She said it was too complicated from the French she learned well in school. So that made me feel justified in spending the time. Feel if I get through the third and fourth series of four - which I believe is equivalent to the 12 CDs- I will be very prepared to interact on a basic level in a French speaking place. This series was a bit over three hours, but it probably took at least six for me to get through. However, I have limited time and would have to go back a few minutes each time because I had forgotten the last things where I left off. (He does say to go back if you are struggling a lot with something because the more you hear it, the more it gets reinforced.) Great teacher if you do as instructed and stop and think before you speak instead of letting it tell you the answer.

By far these language courses made by Paul Noble and put out by Harper Collins are the best I imagine possible in a strictly audio format. He is so bright and at the same time so calm and reassuring. The native female helping him with examples complements him wonderfully. This is the easiest way to learn a language. Pair this with online drills like Duolingo and a video-chat tutor, as well as some French TV and you'll feel competent in the language in relatively very little time. I can't wait to move on to the other languages in this series. The prospect is not daunting now at all, but rather something I'm addicted to like my favorite rock band's new album.

What did you like most about Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 2?
This is the best French audio I've used - it's really clear and easy to follow. Paul anticipates some of the stumbling blocks typically found with learning French and explains these really well. This is a really good platform for further study - I only wish I'd bought the complete course at the start.
i have studied French for years and these lessons made everything at last come together.
