Review - Pimsleur Approach French I

A few my readers may remember my review for the Pimsleur Approach Spanish 1 that I posted in. The only foreign language class that I took in high school back in the late 90s, was French. Lets just say that my gradse weren't that impressive and beside for pronouncing a few numbers, I don't remember a bit of what I learned.

It is difficult to learn a new language out of a text book and that is one of the reasons why I was interested in reviewing the Pimsleur Approach programs in the first place.

Unlike other programs, you don't have to download a program to your computer to use the Pimsleur Approach French I. The program is an audio only program, featuring 30 units on 16 CDs with each course being 30-minutes in length, meaning anyone can find time during the day to learn a new language. It is recommend that you play each course in order with no more than one course a day. If you don't think you have grasped a course, just repeat it the next day.

Despite the fact that I don't ever think I will be going to France, after learning a bit of Spanish, I thought I would give the French 1 course a try. Though I have taken a French class before, learning French is still a bit difficult for me. Similar to the Spanish program, the first course (or unit) teaches you how to have a conversation in French, staring with "Excuse me. Do you speak English?" and "Excuse Me. Do you speak French?," all of which is something you would say if you are vacationer or on a business trip in France. Like I said, I don't plan on going to France, but you never know when you'll bump into somebody from France who needs directions. Overall, the Pimsleur Approach French I is fun and it is easier to use than reading from a text book.

The Pimsleur Approach French 1 program can be purchased on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
