Amazingly Effective! Breaks All Conventions

Any additional comments?

I just finished Power French I Accelerated for the first time. I am amazed at what I have learned.
I have tried virtually every French language program available on Audible and Amazon, and I have to say that Power French is by far the most effective program I have used by far.
Here’s why:
1. Frobose breaks all the rules and therefore forces you to hear and learn real French. Most other language programs candy-coat their presentations, dumbing them down to make them appear to be effective when they clearly are not. Power French I is as fun as it is challenging, but it really raises the bar and motivates you to learn to speak more French than you ever dreamed possible.
2. Huge amount of vocabulary that is presented in a memory format so you can actually walk away from each lesson speaking more French than before you started it. It’s all super useful vocabulary. Stuff like “Now that I think about it” or “I would like a glass of red wine, not white wine”. And it seems at times that there is no method to the madness UNTIL you realize that you have not been babied, you have been TAUGHT to speak a huge amount of French, and even learned to put it all together in your own sentences.
3. When I say that Mark Frobose breaks the rules, I really mean that he is not a conventional teacher. For example, he doesn’t just teach the present tense in the 1st program. He actually threw in future and past tenses into a first level program. Heresy for traditional French classes and programs. Unheard of.
Brilliant, because I understood it right away since he explained it in a simple fashion in English and then Chloé the native French teacher simply spoke it and I learned it. In a traditional program, the teachers would make a huge deal of this and say that you could never be ready to learn this level of French so early, even though that’s how we learned English, and how the French learned French. It’s all thrown in together. Frobose manages somehow to teach this natural format in a way that really clicks. He organizes all of this mess into an interesting, fun, and yes, challenging format that really makes you want to continue. You’re never bored when you are really learning, and this program keeps you learning until the end.

I am now ready to start the program all over again, and I am sure that I will learn as much or more from it the 2nd time as I did the first, and never ever be bored. So much quality instruction for so little money. It would be wonderful if all language teachers could teach like this, but Frobose is a one of a kind marvel and I thank him for what I have learned from him.

Easy & Effective

Would you listen to Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) again? Why?

This seems to have an good combination of repetition and springing forward to learn new words and phrases. I get tired occasionally of the repetition, but I think it serves the purpose of reinforcing the basics. The french speaker is very easy to understand, with a clear, pleasing voice - different from several other audio books I've sampled. The one thing I wish this offered is a course outline showing the words and phrases in writing. I'm more of a visual learner, and not seeing the spelling of the words (even though this is a refresher for me, not completely new) is a bit of a hindrance. But, overall, this was very useful and easy to listen to.

Helpful aid to learning basics....

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Seems to mimic the method used by Michel Thomas by taking pronouns (me, you, they, us etc) and adding basic vocabulary to create simple sentences, so good for beginners to grasp some basics quickly. Jumps around a bit which leaves gaps in actual learning and unfortunately makes remembering a greater challenge as logic/progression disappears. Doesn't really cover any tense beyond present nor really discusses some key areas of grammar. Overall good intro for a non speaker and aid for a beginner.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Mark Frobose?


Do you think Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

If it is to provide something more than a basic intro then very definitely.

Excellent French Lessons. Loads of material

Would you consider the audio edition of Power French Accelerated: 8 One-Hour Audio Lessons (English and French Edition) to be better than the print version?

I have not found the print version, and only listened to this via Audible download. I have purchased several products by this author (Mark Frobose) and I do highly recommend them. I took off 1 star because I could not find a downloadable PDF booklet of this product, if one exists. (His other audible French lesson products "Behind The Wheel" 1 and 2 come with full download PDF books of all the material you listen and learn).However it is an excellent system, clear, with good amounts of repetition, a solid start for beginners, and a fairly fast pace to move through new material.

Any additional comments?

I'm finding this very good to replay and re-listen to. in the 8+ hours it covers a lot of different topics and material. I fully plan to listen to it at least 6 times from start to finish, and on each time I often stop a chapter and rewind it to re-listen to the last half hour or so.I'm going to learn this stuff in record time, I swear!
