French 3-Level Set: The Complete Language Course: With Carrying Case (Learn in Y our Car) by Henry N.

Raymond Product Details Audio CD: ; Dimensions (in inches): 1.98 x 10.24 x 9.10 Publisher: Penton Overseas, Inc.; (July 2002) ISBN: 1591252083 Audiobook Review Look ma, no textbooks! The Learn in Your Car series treats you like a child--in the best possible way - starting with one-word phrases ("please," "good-bye"), c ounting exercises, and simple nouns ("bus," "train") designed to imitate a child 's learning process. First you hear the words in English, then they are repeated slowly in clear, unaccented pronunciations. The method is extremely effective f or those who don't know a thing, or for those who want to brush up by testing th emselves when the English words are spoken. The tapes emphasize the building blo cks of communicating in a foreign country rather than rote phrases that only app ly on the tape and not in real-life exchanges. Level 1 painlessly covers basic verb forms, essential prepositions, near future and past tenses, as well as shopping, hotel reservations, and other travel-relat ed situations. The series includes French, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, a nd Spanish in three levels that can be purchased individually or in boxed sets. Each level contains two 90-minute cassettes (or CDs) and an accompanying booklet (not for use behind the wheel) with helpful explanations and scripts for the le ssons. -This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition. Midwest Book Review Immersion +: Talk French is a unique program designed for the intermediate to ad vanced language student. A series of vignettes is recorded at regular conversati onal speed in the foreign language, then at a 50% slower speed, and then repeate d at the conversational speed a second time. The listeners gain comprehension th rough the dialogs, greatly improving their conversational skills. Included with the 90-minute cassette is a complete Listening Guide printed in both English as well as the foreign language. This is especially helpful, since the translation of the foreign language follows the normal manner of speaking, not on a word-for -word basis. The true flavor of the foreign language is captured for the listene r, including idioms and expressions unique to the language. In addition to Frenc h, there is also an Immersion +: Talk Spanish (560-4 $10. 95). -This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
