Basically, unless you speak French already this audiobook is virtually impossible to follow... It is way too fast and complex due to the lack of phonetics and speed at which the narration is given.
the audiobook is the worst language learning book,
If you have to learn French, please use the Michel Thomas CDs or Berlitz instead. This was just awful -- I don't believe that there's anyone in the world who speaks French well as a result of listening to this. I'm decent at French, but the teaching methods -- or lack thereof -- on this CD left me totally confused. One of the sample sentences is, "I am from Paris." In what situation could someone who needs to learn French (and thus use the tapes) possibly have to say, "I am from Paris." If I were from Paris, I wouldn't have rented your ridiculous French lessons! It's a wonderful language and there are some great resources out there to help you learn it. Unfortunately, this is not one of them.
Would teach some useful words and phrases doing listen and repeat, then you have to start answering questions. That was very tough to keep up. Had to just blow by some of the exercises.
