If you buy into the Pepé Le Pew stereotype of the French–arrogant, stuffy, overly amorous, and rather odiferous (Pepé Le Pew was a skunk. Talk about stereotypical!)–then think again. Not only are the French people some of the most relaxed, pleasant people you'll ever meet, but their society is one of the oldest, most culturally rich societies in the world. So it's no surpr...more

I found it hard to learn on my own using this book - I probably need more CD's than the one that came with this. I only have 1 year of high school French (eons ago!). Wish I could recommend it but c'est la vie!
Forgive me any error. When one is reading French for Dummies, 6 books in one, and it isn't listed as an item in Goodreads, one may decide to go with what the program offers. My bookmark is restin in Book 2 chapter 5 at the moment and the suspense is magnetic. ~ googled, alas!

The hardest language I've ever learned. For beginners, I think this book is for you. I can't hardly speak French but with this book, I've learn so much about the daily "French words" phrases that I find it useful if you want to visit France.
So far, this has been a fairly good review of French. There is a rather good explanation of the difference between the three types of pronomial verbs on page 156.

Read a lot of the beginning pages and some of the conversations on the accompanying disc. Didn't find it particularly helpful, but I may read the rest sometime.
Pretty helpful if you want a quick fix. Grammar was splattered throughout and I wished there had been an appendix with all the straight rules.

This book helped my initial attempts of reading French by it's pronunciation. I thank this book for my fairly decent French accent.
Though the practical information is about a decade out of date, the style is actually a lot more helpful than I expected.

the first few chapters are almost too easy if you have ever taken any french...even in high school 12 years ago.

It is really outdated, but I like reading it anyway. Read this and skip to that. I guess it is for dummies.
Nancy Zuerlein
I particularly liked that this book included the phonetic pronunciation of the French words.
Not for me. Very boring way to learn a new language.
