With the second installment of Mastering French Conversation, we expand our ability to converse in French.
As before, the drills allow you to practice hearing, understanding and formulating sentences in French. In this way you learn to think in French. You are preparing for live conversations on the streets of Paris.
This program is likely the most intensive and demanding audio self-help French program available. If you really want to master French conversation, this course is for you.
In this course, we will cover:
1) Indefinite Articles: un, une, des
2) Cardinal Numbers
3) Negative Adverb: ne ... pas
4) The verb 'avoir'
For course details, please see our website.
We wish you the very best,
Scott & Dr. Annette Brians

Repetition is key
There are no abrupt increases in difficulty- the repetition present in this program ensures that you master more basic concepts before moving onto more advanced ones. Although repetition is a hallmark of this program, the authors do a good job at rotating the sections in a way that keeps the listener engaged with small increases in difficulty giving a constant feeling of progression. I was pleased to see that the authors incorporated much more of the vocabulary from the start of the unit into the practice and dialogue sections, and bring them up throughout the rest of the unit and into units 3-6.Additionally, the pronunciation is more enunciated and consistent relative to other programs I've used in the past, which was very helpful for me. Also, make sure you have the transcript- this audiobook is useless without it.

Mastering French Conversation unit 2
Well done throughout
.Unit 2 was a natural follow on to Unit 1. Using the FSI method of substitution drills really keeps you on your toes and shows how French conversation is constructed allowing for more automatic responses, I find dealing with similar structures but using different substituted words makes the memorization easier. As in unit 1, I recommend downloading the free transcript to ensure you know the words you are hearing. Seriously learning a foreign language is time consuming with lots of repetition but the rewards great. I was able to finish unit 2 before arriving in Tahiti. It was a joy to communicate fairly responsively, especially when I needed help to find my misplaced cell phone. If you put out the effort to speak to them, they will respond in spades which makes all the hard work worth it.
