    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.

    A really good book

    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. But for the completely blank slates Im assuming the book should do wonders. Either way its a good book :) It goes over all concepts and the CD is definitely amazing!

    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 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.
