Présentation de l'éditeur
Learn over 50 essential words at the heart of French and how to put them together to make yourself understood. This 1-hour basic introduction to French with the Michel Thomas Method will get you speaking the language immediately: no books, no pens, no memorizing - just listen, connect and speak.
How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel and two students in a live lesson, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing.
Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. You'll stick with it because you'll love it.
Where do I go next?
After you finish your Start course, you can move to the Total French course, which includes 8 hours of audio and a practice CD-ROM. Perfect French follows on from the Total course with 10 hours of audio and a practice CD- ROM.
Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player.

I normally listen to language lessons while commuting in my car, but this hour long lesson is much too intense to do anything else. The hour does hover on information overload, and I had to break it up into 3 twenty minute sessions and will probably need to repeat these a few times. However, MIchel Thomas is so engaging that I look forward to repeating the lesson (and already bought the Total French series). I can't say I ever looked forward to repeating a Pimsleur session (sorry Pimsleur, I love you but Excitement is not your middle name).
You won't be fluent at the end of an hour, but you will understand more words than the standard one hour lesson of hello, goodbye, thank you, excuse me, and please. This method does not focus on pronunciation. For practicing pronunciation, I like Pimsleur method. To get used to 'real life' French in 'real time' speeds, look on the internet for free videos called 'French in Action', created by Pierre Capretz.
The cd's bring you into his discussion group where you are taught everything from common phrases to complex conjugations. The intro tape leverages the French words you may know, "Comme si comme sa" and builds them into sentences that you can easily create-building your confidence immediately.
His teaching style insists there is no memorization and he provides thoughtful connections to support your quick learning; "the verb to go is 'aller' this is where the English work alley comes from."
You become part of the classroom experience with 2 other students; one that appears to be catching on quite well and the other that seems to require more support.
There are a few things to prepare for:
1. You need to be alone with no distractions-my daily commute worked well for me
2.You need to be able to "pause" your cd. He will ask you to translate a phrase and you need to pause to work through it. The tape does not grant you time to think.
3. Follow the process, don't rewind and go back. Michele will frequently press for you to remember items from previous tracks, keeping your learnings top of mind.
Heading to France in a month, I feel confident that I will be able to communicate and feel comfortable on my first trip to Paris!
