French 1 Language Learning Course Review

Do you travel a lot? Need to learn a language for work or school? These language sets are just what you need! We received the Pimsleur French Level 1 Language Learning Course to review. I will be using this to teach my son French before the start of school next year when he will be required to take a foreign language course. 

Based on Dr. Pimsleur's research, the course can have you learning your first lesson in under a minute. It doesn't take long before you are not only speaking French yourself, but understanding it. I was surprised at how quickly I could repeat the words and phrases. And I knew what I was saying! It does take some patience and practice. It is suggested that you only do on lesson a day. We take our time and don't move on to the next until we are comfortable with each lesson.

Dr. Pimsleur was a linguist that not only taught at several universities, but also studied the linguistic and psychological factors of language learning. He conducted several studies independently and  the results of his studies became the Pimsleur Method that is still in use today. Major corporations, government agencies and other entities use the method for their agents and employees to learn other languages. 

It's completely audio-based on CD's so you can listen anywhere. You can even save them as MP3 files to use with an MP3 player in places you might not have access to a CD player. Perfect for at home, traveling or in leisure time, anyone that wants or needs to learn French can do it quickly and easily. 
The course is in thirty 30 minutes sessions - a total of 16 hours. 

Since the course is 100% audio based, there is no special software or driver to install, allowing you to use the disc where ever you have a CD player: at home, in the office, in the car. This is also a great way for moms that are homeschooling to teach their kids foreign languages.

You can find the Pimsleur French Level 1 Language Learning Course on Amazon.com. In addition to French they offer many other language courses. You can learn one or as many as you want!
