Conversational French teacher.Dec 26 2001
- Published on Amazon.com
The Pimsleur method of teaching languages is very effective in my opinion, so I wish more companies and schools would adopt it. Basically, the Pimsleur method is to teach you to converse in the language and become comfortable in the language through talking out loud. You learn new words slowly and incrementally, and there's ample review, in order to ensure that the words and sentences become engrained in your mind. The Pimsleur tapes essentially try to simulate immersing you in the language, which you would of course have to go to France or Quebec to do normally! If you're new to French and want to get comfortable with the language, check out these tapes.
