Hard to make this kind of book 5 stars. But helpful nonetheless.

There is French in the book, so you might learn it that way. The organization is quite poor, and there seems to be little thought put into what should be learned first, and how to build up the language bit by bit. All in all, it proved to be a useless and expensive purchase, which I made only because it was required for a class.
