interesting

This book is just so much fun if one wants to explore a different language. The exaples and the over process is interesting and fun to follow. French as a language is so similair to hindi and i strongly suggest that everyone read this book.

Little boring

I have read the book word power... which included 2 or 3 pages to read and en exercise after that nd this was same throughout the book....which made it good to read...though word power was for improving english vocab and this is for a whole a new language maybe it is a liitle boring with any book........but if u r plannin to start french without any previous knowledge.. try out some other books first as this is more of a dictionary than a step by step learning book...

Excellent book - Just superb

I was just finding this type of book. The CD provided is also superb. But the most important and the most helpful thing is the French pronunciation written in english. This is the best part of the book. Believe me, I was the best student in my earlier French learning class and take it from me that without the pronunciation, you will not be able to learn it. So just go for this book blindly. And the price is unbelievably reasonable. Thank you "French For Dummies'".

Good for Beginners

I love that the pronunciations are written phonetically. Good for people who are not great with grammar rules. It has lots of content, very helpful for pronunciation. I would definitely recommend for beginners, a good place to start. (View complete review)

This book is honestly really good and the concepts are rather easy to grasp. But Ive done the basics of French as a child so it was easy for.
