Without exaggeration, "Get Started In French" is the total bottom and garbage among French teaching books. As a professional linguist who has been teaching 8 different languages for 16 years, I must claim that I've never seen any worse "teaching material" than this book. It seems that the author only wanted to get money without even intending to give their customer what they need, combining totally inconsistent random content in several pages, called it a book and offered it on Amazon - without even caring if the product might ever help any learner or not.
Why all this complaint? Let's see:
1) Although this book is targeted for beginners, the author did not even bother to add pronunciation (phonetic transcription) to new vocabularies in any lessons. All new words are only listed in their written forms. This way, the learners can only guess how the new words are pronounced. This results in acquiring many bad habits in pronunciation that are later really hard to unlearn and to correct. A good book for beginners always shows the phonetic transcription of every single new word.
2) Most of the vocabulary listed in the individual lessons is not used in the following texts at all. Unit 2, for instance, lists 34 new key words (plus 4 more words titled as "For you to understand"). But only about 5 words (!) of all those words are subsequently used in the texts within the same unit. The rest of the words is not used in any part of Unit 2 at all. Why??
3) The records do not contain most of the vocabulary of the same unit. Again, a good example is Unit 2. Have you read the 34 new words in the vocabulary list and do you now want to practice them in their spoken form? You're going to be badly disappointed: Even if you play all the records related to this lesson, you will hardly hear any of the new words listed within the same unit. This book simply fails to give you ANY CHANCE of knowing how the new vocabulary is pronounced - neither via phonetic transcription, nor through records. This results in the question, why the author presented the new vocabulary in the lesson at all. Useless!
4) The pronunciation of the native speakers in the records is sometimes incorrect. For instance, the record "Unit 2: Dialogue 1" contains a phrase "Et du vin?", which is pronounced by the speaker in the record like "Et du zin?" ([z] pronounced instead of [v]).
That is why I recommend anybody to avoid this book. I believe any other book will be better than this one.
