Thorough, but not for total beginners. April 19 2009
By Ed Flaspoehler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book for my review of French in preparation for a recent trip to Paris. I found it very well organized and thorough.

I took it to work with me each day on the train and was able to review a dialogue and chapter in a day or so over the course of about three months. It was very up to date, and covered the material logically and clearly. And the dialogues were consistently interesting and entertaining.

However, in spite of what the cover says, this is not a book for total beginners. I was fortunate that I already had a firm foundation in pronunciation, vocabulary and basic French grammar. But this book dives in quickly, and beginners would probably not find it so easy and should probably look elsewhere.

However, if you have already studied French in high school or college, and a quick review of the basics is what you are looking for, I am sure that you will find this book to be what you are looking for.

What I need now is a good review of Italian, for my yet to be planned trip to Rome and tour of Italy!

this is a great book Nov. 25 2007
By Sabine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this is a well thought out language book. I found the pronounciations particularly helpful, and it is laid out really well (designed well) and the grammar is concise and easy to follow. I found this book a very beneficial part of my library of 'learning french' books. It's one of my favourites.

User-friendly and inexpensive Dec 3 2010
By My Two Cents - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to supplement my audio learning of French using the Pimsleur method. French Made Simple is an excellent resource because it introduces vocabulary in a controlled way. Short passages are presented in each chapter with French in one column and English in the other. There are follow-up exercises to practice and apply your new vocabulary. Be sure to supplement this book with an audio program, so you are learning the correct pronunciation of words.

Questions June 6 2010
By J. Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The pronunciation section is great, the exercises aren't bad, and the advice given seems practical and clear and generally decent. The stories aren't that great, but the narrative format and practice sentences seem to help me remember vocabulary pretty well.

Good Text July 27 2011
By P. W. Gabriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First of all French is not simple. But this book breaks it down to be as simple as possible. I haven't gotten thru the whole book but I am working at it. I would definitely buy this one again.
