French Language Books
Collins French with Paul Noble combines an exciting, new non-traditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure. Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling 'confused, incapable and unable to really say anything'. As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language. Listen to over 13 hours of audio on 12 CDs, then use the accompanying booklet as a reference and revision tool. A native-speaking French expert helps Paul to deliver the course and to perfect your pronunciation. There is also a free introductory DVD to give you an insight into how the Paul Noble method works. No complicated grammatical explanations, no rote memorisation, no writing -- no stress. Learn over 6,000 words in no time at all and -- most importantly -- learn how to make your new vocabulary work for you.

Forget the French you learnt at school. Based on twenty years of hard-won knowledge, "Pardon My French" takes you through all the words you need to survive, shows how and why they work, and steers you past all the pitfalls and potential embarrassments of speaking French in France.From sugar-cube etiquette to why the Marseillaise is all about slaughtering Austrians and Prussians as bloodily as possible, Charles Timoney lays bare the Gallic mindset alongside their bizarre language. Covering all areas of everyday life from eating and drinking to travel, work and, crucially, swearing and sounding like a teenager, this is not just the most entertaining, but also the most useful book on France and the French you'll ever read.
