This Taster course is the first hour of the eight-hour Foundation French course. Within this first hour you will learn 50 essential words of French thanks to the Michel Thomas Method, perfected over 50 years by celebrated psycholinguist Michel Thomas. * Pick up French naturally and unforgettably without strain* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing* Build up your French in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourself* Progress to the full Foundation French course with confidence in the method. What's new?This new edition includes remastered audio and comes in new, eco-friendly recyclable packaging. How does it work?During this one-hour live course, you will join Michel Thomas and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. From the beginning you will be able to construct simple sentences, and you will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating as necessary, and completing the course within 3-4 hours.Why is the Method so successful? 'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel ThomasMichel Thomas believed that the greatest barrier to any form of learning was stress: stress from worrying about remembering what you are being taught, stress from being afraid to make a mistake, stress from failing.With the Michel Thomas Method, all the attention is focused on removing stress and tension from the learning environment. The teacher takes on full responsibility for your understanding, and therefore your remembering, of what is being taught. In fact, the Michel Thomas Method forbids you from trying to memorize. There's no writing, no books, no homework.The Michel Thomas Method works by stripping away all inessential language and breaking down the most important language into its component parts. Crystal-clear building blocks are then presented, and only when they are absorbed and understood is the next piece of the puzzle introduced, enabling you to reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want.What's in the Course?*Start French comprises one audio CD. The booklet is available to download from www.michelthomas.com.*Note that the course content is the same as the previous Start French edition, with remastered audio Learn anywhereMichel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player.What learners are sayingI experienced the same sort of pleasure that you got from suddenly getting a crossword clue right or cracking a code...the finger-snapping moment of, Oh My God! I've just understood what you've said to me in Spanish or you've just understood me! -Peter LØVSTRØM , Actor, 2017I've used Michel Thomas to get off the starting block for French, Italian and Spanish and I'm always surprised by how much I can say after only a few hours of listening. The Michel Thomas Italian course organises verbs into logical groups which helps you pick them up fast. And perhaps more importantly, it shows you how to use this grammar to build useful sentences. -Katie from Joyoflanguages.com

Do you want to be able to express yourself in Spanish with confidence and fluency?Insider's Spanish offers a local perspective on Spanish culture, opinions and language use so that you can speak confidently on today's most important and relevant topics. This intermediate Spanish conversation course, devised for all intermediate-level learners or those following on from Total or Perfect Spanish, will advance your overall fluency, listening comprehension and conversation skills, expand your vocabulary and improve your grammar. Through authentic, lively conversations around engaging topics, and the unique Michel Thomas Method for learning, this course focuses on the colloquial language and conversation strategies used by native Spanish speakers so that you can fit in and communicate more naturally.Michel Thomas, the preeminent language teacher, always said that learners start by mastering basic linguist structures (as in his Total and Perfect courses), which provide the bare walls of the house, but that that it was up to us, the learner, to decorate it in our own personal way. Insider's Spanish reflects Michel Thomas's 'Phase 2' courses that he and his team offered at his New York language school, allowing increased vocabulary, improved speaking, comprehension and reading and writing skills - the tools with which to decorate their houses.Insider's Spanish includes:· Twenty authentic conversations around a comprehensive range of subjects that reflect contemporary Spanish culture· Language plus: conversation strategies, pronunciation and intonation to help learners express themselves naturally· Listening and speaking practice to help learners progress to the next level· Cultural insights into the unspoken rules of the language This ebook includes 10 chapters with integrated audio conversations.Why is the Michel Thomas Method so successful?The Michel Thomas Method draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised for the student so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method deconstructs the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that the learner creates his/her response and moves on to ever-more-complex sentences. Michel said: I will dissect everything into small parts and reassemble it in such a way that one will understand everything step by step.He was also very clear about his ground rules: no memorisation, no drills, no homework; relax and leave off the anxiety normally associated with language learning.
