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 Book

Very good book for beginners. An audio CD is provided along with the book to help enhance the listening skills. But the CD I got wasn't a good one. 2 tracks viz. Track no. 18 & 19 didn't play well. The audio wasn't clear. And there was a hole in Page 75 of the book.
