"You are about to experience a new way of learning" Michel Thomas delivers the first words of his French Language course in a distinctly authoritative and sagacious manner. The techniques he has developed, he goes on to say, will involve merely listening and responding. No learning by rote. No writing. No memorising. The responsibility for learning rests solely with the teacher, he reassuringly states. As this introduction forms part of a teaser introductory course, originally sold separately from the full content, you'd be forgiven for dismissing this as Americanised sales hyperbole. Perhaps it is, yet it renders the course no less effective. Thomas ... Read the complete review

Are you one of the thousands of people in the UK who put- learn a language- on their new year resolutions list? If so, the odds are that you have been planning to learn one for years. Let us say you have decided to learn French. You love the idea of speaking some of the language when you next visit - as opposed to doing the normal English trick of speaking slower and louder with laboured annunciation in the hope that works as some sort of magical translation tool. But you are busy, the thought of attending night classes, doesn't fit your lifestyle, you know you won't keep it up. You also are not over enamoured with the prospect of homework and ...

Why do you want to learn French? Is it for a pleasure trip or holiday across the water to visit the fabulous cities of our European cousins? Perhaps you are off on a business trip, have French clients or would like some French clients? Maybe you have French friends? Maybe you just like the sound of the language? Or perhaps you have other reasons... Whatever your reasons for wanting to learn French one thing is for certain - you want it to be as easy and as fun as possible and with the least amount of hard work. Right! How do you like the sound of NO TEXTBOOKS, NO TRYING TO MEMORISE ANYTHING and NO HOMEWORK TO DO? Yes? Well that's what appealed to ... Read the complete review

Michel Thomas is undoubtedly a remarkable and talented man with many achievments under his belt. Not only has he been a language teacher for 50 years (surely enough to push anyone over the edge?) but he also escaped from a French concentration camp and the Gestapo. It was his wartime experiences which opened his eyes to the importance of education in a free society. Having studied in France, Germany and Austria - enabling him to learn a variety of dialects - he was ideally placed to start a language school. He adopted a unique approach to learning, and since 1947 has taught thousands personally, and thousands more impersonally through the use of his language courses. .. Read the complete review

Michel Thomas is renowned for being one of the worlds greatest language teachers. His original and enjoyable way of teaching languages means that you never have to pick up a pen or do any tedious exercises that make you feel like your back at school. His teaching methods ensure that the language is absorbed rather than learnt, therefore acquiring your new language in much the same way as you picked up your mother tongue. Michel's past is as interesting and remarkable as his teaching skills and it is his life experiences which fuelled and developed his passion for teaching. During the Second World War, he was kept in a French concentration and slave labour ... Read the complete review
