"A great way to learn; it's fast and it lasts". -- The Daily Telegraph "Five minutes into the first CD, you already feel like you're winning." -- Time Out "Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed." -- The Guardian "Thomas makes it simple" -- Sunday Times "Michel's methods will teach you effectively and easily" -- Daily Star "Hugely inspiring" -- Red "Ideal for any business traveller who needs to be able to get around confidently." -- Sunday Business "Moving along at a relaxed, slow pace, punctuated by amusing anecdotes and jokes from the teacher, the new words, phrases and language rules are gently introduced and reinforced through subtle repetition without ever being tedious. In fact, despite a distinct emphasis on non-work, the course proves very effective and enjoyable, and its format is ideal for learning anywhere you like. So, if you only want to learn to speak the language, this course is highly recommended." -- Top Real Travel Product, Real Travel 20080601 "Excellent for learning ... This entirely audio course is easy to use and quickly results in some useful ability in the new language. Great for the car." -- Adventure Travel 20080601
