Very inexpensive like-new but officially considered USED textbook for learning French using the Capretz Method of video based language instruction. Pierre Capretz's video series "French in Action" is generally considered the premier language learning program available. The author was a master pedagogue for the teaching of French, and developed this series at Yale University. One can't do better than this program if one wants to learn French without actually going to France. Through the accompanying video series (available separately) you make a virtual trip to France and learn to speak the language effectively. Very highly recommended!

Superb product. Perhaps the best language program in the world, as another reviewer stated. Please let me explain why I think that.

After learning several languages as an adult (French is my 7th) I came to realize that variety is good for me. I look for the most effective products for each aspect of language learning. For French, I used Pimsleur to get grounded in the language, think on my feet, and nail down my pronunciation. I used Michel Thomas to acquire a lot of grammar quickly. I listen to Learn in Your Car for vocabulary and grammar reinforcement. I use Anki flashcards for visual reinforcement. I have a conversation class, all French, once a week with a wonderful teacher on Skype. French in action videos are my listening practice, and the text is my reading practice.

For listening and reading, ideally what one wants is comprehensible native material (Krashen's i+1) for a beginner that gradually builds into normal native material. Very few language materials have attempted this, and even fewer have succeeded. FIA is the only one I know of that not only accomplished this difficult feat, but did it in a high budget, TV quality production, complete with fun story line, cute characters, excerpts from movies and TV shows, etc. The text is equally comprehensible, which makes it an easy introduction to reading. For these reasons, FIA gets my vote for best language program ever.

But I still wouldn't use it as my only program. Multi-tiered approaches are much more efficient, IMO. So if watching the video alone is too hard for you, soften it up by trying Michel Thomas or Pimsleur or something. But please don't try to convince the world that this is a bad product. We know otherwise.

I think getting the text used on Amazon is the best way to go. As for the video, if you don't want to go through the hassle of downloading them for free, you can try what I did. I bought them on an auction site for $25. You'll see several up for bids at any one time. Many, perhaps most, are by people who have made many copies, and want to sell them for big bucks. Just keep submitting low bids, and you should be able to get one quickly.

If you love trying to learn French, then watching the French in Action (online for free) is a good idea. This book is necessary so you can read and decipher what the heck was said so fast. I also bought the workbook but then realized it was only good to use with the audio cds. The audio is really helpful, I enjoy listening to Professor Capretz, he's kooky. Learning French is not easy, these audio cds and workbook things take a while to go through, but it is entertaining. If you are broke, you can download the audio and workbook from a torrent online for free (I found one on pirate bay). If you have money, just buy the book, it's way easier to have the actual book in hand, then you can write into it. But for the audio (if you don't mind downloading torrents), you can easily listen on your computer without shelling out so much cash. I also recommend buying the book new so you don't have to look at other people's annoying notes in the book. Oh yeah and one more thing the pictures and illustrations are way cool! I must admit this is not my only attempt in learning french. If you have trouble remembering vocabulary, I recommend using the Rosetta Stone program. It really makes you memorize things, since it's so interactive. I think if you are serious about learning French and can't go to France or take classes just yet, the more quality resources you have the better. And this is a winner!

Quite simply, this is the best course for any language that I have ever encountered. The textbook is entirely in French and basically consists of transcripts of each episode with some pictures attempting to explain certain words and then some exercises for good measure at the end. The course can be as shallow or deep as you want it - one watch through will certainly be beneficial to an extent, especially if you already have exposure, two to three to four viewings will increase those gains exponentially. I recommend simply viewing the entire series passively the first time through, going a second time through with the textbook reading along, entering any interesting sentences into an SRS-program of choice, and then doing a third viewing checking to see what you don't understand, and, if you're still not sick of it(and who could be sick of Mireille?!), a fourth.

This is also a perfect companion to New French With Ease: The Day-By-Day Method. As delightful a method as this is, combining methods will always be more effective, and Assimil is focused towards assimilating the language just as FIA is. Both courses used together would easily get one to a solid intermediate to advanced level.

I am a French native speaker. I am, among others, a French conversation coach. However, i happened to get a request for teaching French to a beginner student. I discovered this method through an american friend who used it and was quite fluent in French after using this method for 3 years (there are 2 volumes) while he was in his fifties.
