In this five-hour intermediate level audio course Michel Thomas Method teacher Hélène Lewis introduces over 1,000 new words, verbs and everyday phrases through essential language building blocks which allow you to increase your vocabulary in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out answers for yourself.

What's the added plus?

Focusing on the similarities and differences between French and English, you will gain the tools and strategies to exponentially build up your vocabulary.

Who is this course for?
Whether you have learned from other Michel Thomas courses or are simply looking for a new approach to help improve your proficiency, the French Vocabulary Builder+ will introduce you to a unique way of acquiring language that will significantly boost your confidence in your ability to speak, listen to, pronounce and understand French.
