Vous voulez apprendre le français or I should say Want to learn French? Pimsleur French Lessons will help

I live in south Louisiana and cannot speak a word of French, my ancestors however were all very fluent in the language. My grandparents would talk in French around me all the time, no doubt they were probably talking about me. If not surely it was something "little ears" did not need to hear. How the language escaped me is something I cannot explain but I have always wanted to learn.

Went I tried to schedule a foreign language in high school French was full so I never really pursued it after that. When I was chosen to review Pimsleur French Lesson I was so ready. This was my time to learn. I have used Pimsleur before and I know how easy it makes learning another language.

The Pimsleur approach is very easy to understand and instead of listening to someone drilling words in your head, you actively participate in a simulated conversation. You are constantly being asked to repeat the words you are learning. Even once you move on to learn other words, the CD comes back and reminds you of the previous words. That way you don't forget what you have learned. It is amazing how much you comprehend this way. I let my children listen to them with me and and my 5 year old daughter is still saying some words she learned. So this lesson is something the entire family can benefit from.

I am enjoying the lessons and have learned a fair amount of French in just one CD. There are 16 disk all together so by the time I finish I'm confident I will be able to communicate effectively in French. I'm undecided if I will tell anybody that speaks French. I may just let them continue to talk around me and see what they are saying!

The best part is it only takes around 30 minutes a day because it is only recommended that you do one lesson per day. You don't want to overload your brain!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I took 7 years of French and still can not speak it. I can still read it and generally can understand what is being said if they go lentement (hopefully I spelled that correctly). Good luck with your ongoing lessons!

  2. I would love to try this out. I took French in high school but I'm not great at speaking it (I'm ok reading or understanding it) and would love to actually use it in conversation. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I really want to learn a second language I just have a hard time doing so! I think to start off I want to learn sign language

  4. I received this for Spanish to brush up on mine and loved the system. My son has been taking French for 3 years and I was thinking of getting this for him. I think it's a great way to not "lose" an extra language.

  5. I'm so glad that you found a good language program! Languages are so hard for me to learn - I took 8 years of spanish, but don't speak more than a few sentences - this sounds great though. I love that it's only 30 minutes a day!

  6. What a great program for little ones. My teen would love to learn french. I'm going to show her this and it may be a new project. Thanks!

  7. This is awesome. I too have always wanted to learn French. Thanks for sharing.
