By Roger Nyborg, Håkan Rosenqvist, Michel Thomas
Authors:
Roger Nyborg, Håkan Rosenqvist, Michel Thomas
Experience significant results in a remarkably short period of time thanks to the unique Michel Thomas Method, perfected over 50 years by celebrated linguist Michel Thomas. The method works in tune with how the brain prefers to receive, store and then retrieve information. You'll stick with it, because you'll love it.* Pick up Swedish naturally and unforgettably, without strain* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing* Build up your Swedish in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourselfHow does it work?During this eight-hour live course, given by Michel Thomas Method teachers Håkan Rosenqvist and Roger Nyborg, you will learn the language along with two students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. Within the first hour you will be able to construct simple sentences. By the end of the course, you will have the confidence to understand and speak basic Swedish. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary, and complete the course in about 20-30 hours.Why is it 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?Foundation Swedish with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 8 hours of audio on CD. The first hour is the same as the Start Swedish taster course. The booklet is available to download from www.michelthomas.comLearn anywhereMichel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move. The audio CDs are MP3-compatible.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

    Façon de Parler 1 French for Beginners 5ED

    This Activity Book complements the tasks in Façon de Parler 1, the best-selling French course for adult beginners. Each unit closely mirrors that of the coursebook with exercises following each section chronologically, so that students who have only worked through part of a unit can concentrate on consolidating their knowledge of a particular item. A variety of exercises, including puzzles and quizzes as well as more conventional activities, has been specially devised to practise the material in the coursebook, both in class and for homework purposes. Earlier tasks are more gently paced while later exercises are more challenging and will be suitable for extended practice or to stretch fast learners. 'Coin info' sections provide extra cultural information and units include an FAQ ('Foire Aux Questions') which offers a general revision of grammar and vocabulary covered in the unit. Façon de Parler 1 Activity Book is a valuable component of the course, constituting an essential source of practice and ideas for both learners and teachers alike.
