Finally, practice what you have learned with the review track. Repeat the words and phrases you hear in the review track aloud to practice pronunciation and reinforce what you have learned.

Love the program, hate the choice of lessons

I recognize the program from a podcast I listen to, a very good one. The narrators are excellent and informative, and I've always wanted to purchase more of their lessons.

However, when it comes to the lessons Innovative Language Learning chose to include in this "ultimate getting started" box set, I was very disappointed.

A huge chunk of these 55 lessons (I'd say somewhere around ~20, very rough guess) don't actually include ANY lessons on speaking French, but rather information like French pop culture icons, French politics, etc. The program starts off well with lessons about pronunciation and grammar, then for some bizarre reason all you end up learning is how French government works etc.

This isn't "Learning French"--it's helpful but it's not at all what was advertised.

Disappointment

What disappointed you about Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55?

If you want to learn how to speak English with a rather cute French accent, this is the audiobook for you, but if you want to start your journey learning to speak French this wiil not help you much. After 13 chapters I have learnt to greet and to count and have had to listen to dialogue in English; interesting snippets about France and French society but nothing to set my on the road to SPEAKING French.


Would you ever listen to anything by Innovative Language Learning again?

Yes, perhaps the advanced lessons are better.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

Narrators are fine, if only they spoke more French.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Learn French: Ultimate Getting Started with French Box Set, Lessons 1-55?

The long English dialogues.


Any additional comments?

Really not enough FRENCH text.
