5.0 étoiles sur 5Excellent course7 septembre 2013

Assimil is one of the better examples of how much the student's results depend on how well the teaching method is suited to them. These courses require you to do a lot of work on your own to benefit. The instructions, which are not laid out clearly in the French edition, are pasted below (I got this from the Dutch version). Basically there is a "Passive wave" where you (actively!) listen to the dialogues up to about lesson 70 or so, and then you start doing two lessons per day, moving forward from the halfway point in a passive wave way, and starting back at the beginning in an active wave way. (see below for clarification). This requires a lot of work and motivation on the part of the student, and if you are someone who needs more motivation or structure, you're better off with the FSI courses. Bonne chance!
1. Listen to the text with the book closed. 2. Listen to the recording while looking at the English translation. 3. Read the Target Language (TL) text aloud. Be sure you understand the meaning of each sentence. 4. Now read the TL text without looking at the translation. 5. Listen to the recording twice, once while looking at the English translation, and once while looking at the TL text. 6. Listen to the recording with the book closed. At this point you should understand what is being said 7.Listen to the recording once more. Stop the machine after each sentence, and try to repeat it aloud. 8. Carefully read the comments several times. Examine the English sentences being explained. 9. Read the exercises. Repeat each sentence several times. 10. Examine the examples of sentence structure.
1. Read the lesson, the listen to the recordings. 2. Cover the TL text and try to reconstruct it, looking only at the English sentences. Make an effort to do this both orally and in writing. 3. Uncover the TL text and correct any errors you have made.

All Assimil is excellent, but they have watered it down a lot since I got the basic French course (tapes) in the 80's.
