Using native voice overs to aid the French learning we have also broken the vocabulary down into relevant groups of words that can be learnt day by day. There is a slim line booklet that comes with the Audiobook - slim enough to arrive in your CD case, so it can easily fit into your jacket pocket, and you can learn French on your daily commute. The French language Audio book is designed to be a French learning tool capable of being audio only but supported by a French dictionary to ensure correct spellings and correct pronunciation. Chapters include numbers, colours, days, months, adjectives, and verbs - the full list of chapters is listed on the website under CD content. So whether you are planning to learn French for a holiday, for business, for pleasure, or to help further your career, our French learning CD is intended to be the first step on the French language learning path, to help get you started. Our intention is that it will teach you 1000 French language words as well as giving you nearly a hundred useful French phrases to string your newly learned words together. Vocabulary we believe is the fundamental building block to being able to understanding the French language, and therefore we focus on it directly. Looking at some French text and realising you recognise over 50% of the words, and that it suddenly starts to make more sense, means that learning French becomes more manageable and interesting.

About the Author
Lounge Lizard Languages Ltd was formed in 2007 to deliver a user-friendly product to the French language learning market in How to learn French, to satisfy an existing demand for French language learning. It has been estimated by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education that over 25% of the UK population - some 15 million people - state a desire to learn a language with French taking up a large majority of that number, yet only 500,000 or so are currently studying to this end. The study also revealed that 90% of us want our children to study and speak a second language with again the French language being one of the most preferred , as we clearly all have a realisation of the value in being able to do this in an increasingly International world. Despite already large numbers this desire to learn the French language is ever growing with cities becoming more multi cultural and travel becoming easier the there has never been such a need and desire for new French learners to the French language. We appreciate that potential French learners consider themselves increasingly time poor, and we have therefore developed our French learning CD to utilise the vast amounts of time we spend commuting to work or other similar times which could be more successfully utilised. The accompanying French booklet is intended to be small and slim line, to fit neatly into a jacket pocket or unobtrusively into a handbag. And it doesn't just have to be you learning French- brushing up on your old skills whilst teaching the kids on the morning school run should help them in getting ahead. The UK contains one of the lowest numbers of second language speakers in Europe (and many that are have immigrated). Most other countries have at least half their populations able to speak a foreign language with the French language being particularly prominent. Indeed, of all the developed nations, only America fairs worse than the UK in percentage terms for foreign language speakers. We hope we can change this, to keep Britain's competitive edge. Whether it be for conducting foreign business, holidaying abroad or simply because it would be useful, speaking the French language is an inherent desire in millions of us, yet for some reason, we never find the motivation to begin. Lounge Lizard hopes to bridge that gap to starting, helping to lead you on to greater things. The Lounge Lizard company was started for this very reason of helping to teach foreign language to improve our social skills both at home and abroad along with enhancing our other transferable skills to give us a cutting edge in the business world. Through our French learning tool we feel we have now created something to assist those who want to learn the French language, giving you the best chance yet to first becoming French learners and setting you well on your way to speaking the French language. There are plenty of reasons that could be fitted in here, but regardless of what motivates the millions of you out there, the end game is the same - to learn the French language. With so much going on in our everyday lives, trying to find the time to fit learning the French language in can be a challenge, so we have made it as easy as possible for you to get started. We don't advocate learning French language every day, as this is both impractical and unlikely. Falling behind on a regime is disheartening, and often stalls the whole French learning process. Our French learning CD's are intended to help overcome this. This French learning Audiobook is designed so you can work at your own pace, and subsequently learn more of the French language when you are ready. Whatever the reason for being a French learner this tool is designed for flexible, easy learning and with you in mind. The Lounge Lizards believe smaller milestones are more helpful - which is why we have grouped French language words into chapters. Spending a week commuting to work listening to the numbers, and subsequently being able to count to twenty is oddly satisfying or even listening to the French language audiobook en route to France then being able to ask for a drink can be rewarding. A thirst for French language and further words then creeps up on you, and with a thousand words, there begins a confidence in the realisation that you could be understood by natives abroad, leading you on to even greater achievements using the French language. With the whole French language Audiobook being the basics and essentials for those starting to learn French, the chapters begin with conversational French language words. The flexibility of the this French learning tool allows you to focus on one area more urgently - for example food & drink.
Jonny - Bought originally just to test the water on a new language and after benefiting from its audio only and basic learning structure I have managed to develop my speaking and understanding much more than I had anticipated without having to commit to any allocated learning time as it's all done on the train to work, in the car, in house doing odd jobs making it a great product for when multi tasking or when I have time constraints. All round great, productive and affordable way of learning a language so much so I have purchased the other languages available and my friends will be doing so also. Miss Sprak - Since leaving school I have not paid much attention to languages, until now. This year I holidayed in Nice. I only knew a little French so thought it best to refresh my memory and pick up on some new phrases as I know the French aren't as willing to speak English as most other countries I have been too. The Lounge Lizard French Vocabulary audio CD was a fantastic way to start/get back on the language path, much more interesting than your average language dictionary. It was easy to use and had fantastic results!
