Please be aware that the delivery time frame may vary according to the area of delivery and due to various reasons, the delivery may take longer than the original estimated timeframe. For content more akin to what is found in your typical French materials for beginners, you can turn to the workbooks.

Whereas the videos and textbook, as a matter of course are entirely composed in French and use a wide variety of language, not all of which is expected to be understood, the exercises in the workbook have instructions in English and focus on teaching fundamentals in order, little by little. There is a massive amount of content in the workbooks. So much, that it would take a lot of time if you wanted to cover all of the exercises for every lesson.

Anyone using these materials should be aware of just how much is covered here so that realistic expectations can be set when establishing a timeline for working through the exercises.

I love the exercises in the workbook, not only for their scope, but for the high quality and variety as well.

There are several audio recordings to go with each lesson in the workbook, which ensures that students get just as much practice listening as they do reading. As I alluded to at the beginning of this review, however, this course isn't necessarily for everyone.

First of all, these materials are probably not ideal for anyone below high school age. The course presents both content and themes that may be difficult for younger learners to understand and relate to.

While I don't think it would be impossible to use the course effectively, it might be better to choose materials better suited for that age group. I also would not recommend the course to anyone who is in a hurry to learn French. Preview — French in Action by Pierre J.
