Okay but too complex for survival

Overall, this is an okay product but I felt that some of the phrases are too complex for the non French speaker. If you said them correctly and a French speaker responded, you would have no idea what they were saying to you. Some sections on volume 2 might have been better in volume 1. I did enjoy the social and cultural tips. And each lesson followed the same format with repeated pronunciation examples. But if the narrator had said "bon chance" and explained what it meant one more time I might have thrown my Kindle out the window.

Where does Learn French - Survival Phrases French, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The narrator is excellent, his style of delivery is clear and refreshing. I like his fast pace too, its not too fast to follow along at all, but perfect if you are serious about learning and want to work to achieve some degree of fluency quickly. I have several mps or cds and use this one the most. Agreed, if youre just taking a quick trip and have no real interest in the language you may just want to buy a short guide to get you through. But I do feel this audio is very useful for a short term traveler who wants to feel more comfortable.
