Pronounce it Perfectly i. For the beginning student of French, or for those who have some experience this book and the accompanying CDs are helpful, but would be better if the pauses after the auditory were longer. Yes, the host does recommend pausing the CD after each auditory, and no doubt judgments had to be made from the publisher as to the space allotted both to the CDs and the main text.

Each sound is presented in isolation, based on spelling. It could even be considered to be a catalog of sounds. That makes this book a good reference work. You can look up a spelling in the (very good) index and jump straight to the sound. I'm not sure, though, how good that approach is for learning the sounds in the first place. For example, I had problems with the various "e" sounds of French.

This book teaches one how to conjugate verbs and formulate sentence structures.

If you can't find a decent one, then use an English one.

For the beginning student of French, or for those who have some experience this book and the accompanying CDs are helpful, but would be better if the pauses after the auditory were longer. As they are now, some students of French (such as the reviewer) may be struggling to finish the practice sentences before the next one begins. Yes, the host does recommend pausing the CD after each auditory, and no doubt judgments had to be made from the publisher as to the space allotted both to the CDs and the main text. In addition, not enough explanation is given on the pronunciation of some of the more difficult sounds in French that have no English equivalents, such as the correct way to pronounce the “r” sound in French.

The accents of the verbal tutors are incredible though, and students who use this book will no doubt wish they will eventually sound as beautiful as these individuals. Also, there are some neat literary examples and tongue twisters at the end of the book that are very fun and not terribly difficult. In general then, the book is worth the time, and will set the serious beginning student on the way to learning the world’s most beautiful language.

For those Francophones/Francophiles (or even those vacationing for a short periods of time) who love the French Language, this book is genuinely the best Lesson Book I have found for taking serious lovers of the language to the next level! Personally, I have not found a French language lesson book that has helped me to improve my ability to speak as well as this book has since I purchased it. Of course, it still takes practicing daily, following the clear, concise lessons along with listening to the way the individuals on the CD's help you to understand the exact pronunciation and structure. It has helped where no other Lesson Book has been able to help. Most who love to speak the language - or have tried to learn it - have had French lessons either from school, or are self-taught through immersion or others have been learning and applying the language by means of other courses/books over the years. All with agree that the REAL challenge has always been PROPER pronunciation of French words and phrases. Of course, lessons and books help with phonetic characters; however, if you are like me, they do not always help when you are trying to speak them, they can often be misread or misunderstood. The phonetics simply do not teach proper pronunciation. Therefore, once a person learns the true pronunciation of words - rid ourselves of some phrases and sentence structuring that are not used in reality, the rest is easier to follow! For French, as with other languages, there is also the factor of dialect that comes into play. At times, dialect throws off understanding the language-even in Paris, there is a certain style of modern French (not necessarily slang) spoken around the Arrondissements that lesson books will not help you to understand. But, this book takes ANY level of understanding of the language and helps you to leap forward in your ability to communicate. This , of course, is own personal opinion. Many people may not have trouble with proper pronunciation of French. However, I have found exactly what I have been searching for in all the other lessons that matches what is being spoken when we are in France. Yes, they have helped me along the way to speak the language with ability; but, I have always needed help ascertaining certain distinctive pronunciation of accents - the accent grave, the letters or combinations of letters that have sounds not within the typical English language, etc. I have received exactly what was needed to fill in those gaps of information! So, I highly recommend this book, it is valuable and I have definitely leapt forward in my linguistic skills remarkably where my understanding is exciting and I love, literally LOVE playing with the words and rolling the letters and difficult accents around my mouth, back of my throat, my tongue, etc....Yes, highly recommended to everyone! (Did I say that I can READ French even better than I did before? No? Well, add that to this review as well! It's VERY important to read the language properly with the proper pronunciations in your head!)

This book is awesome! It groups words by the way they are spelled and tells you how to pronounce them. It also points out the exceptions. I have only been using this book for a few weeks and I can now clearly distinguish the various sounds. I took a dictation self test the other day, and to my amazement I got nearly all the words correct, even proper names that I did not know before.
If you want to learn to speak and understand spoken French. buy this. You will be pleased.

Very helpful in learning the nuances of French pronunciation. Learning the phonetic alphabet with the correct voicing really helps when one looks up a new word in a French dictionary which includes the phonetic spelling. I can pronounce the new word qiuite easily without a struggle.

This book and CD are well coordinated. The book has a quality appearance and feel for a paperback and the sound quality of the CD is very good. I have enhanced my ability to pronounce French using this.

I homeschool my 4 children, and I'm using this resource in our quest for a second language. My high-school French classes are far behind me :) so I borrowed this set from the local library. I was so impressed that I bought my own copy! Now all my neighbours think I'm nuts because I wander the neighbourhood muttering in French as I deliver their newspapers, but at least my muttering is perfectly accented and intonated. In all seriousness, this book & CD set is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

We are studying pronunciation and my excellent teacher recommended this She uses it
and supplements it with her fantastic ability...
It helps alot
Have been using as a supplement to my french studies. I took the workbook to class to get help with a couple words and my teacher told me it was an excellent resource. Did not give five stars because I wish there was more work on minimal pairs.
