Suitable for all levels and ages, Complete High Frequency French ideal for travelers, businesspeople, students and language aficionados of all levels and backgrounds. Why high frequency language? How would you feel if someone taught a foreign exchange student at your house the word 'antidisestablishmentarianism'? You would say 'Why did they teach you that word?' 'It isn't even English.' 'No one even knows what it means.' The fact is that it is English, but it is a low frequency word. All languages are literally cluttered with tens of thousands nearly useless low frequency words and structures that the average student must stumble over. The problem is that many foreign language authors and teachers love to teach their students such words because they think they sound neat, and as a result their students never learn to really communicate in a second language. Fortunately for us, all languages also have little gems called 'high frequency' words which are used thousands of times more often than other words and structures and are therefore much more valuable to the language learner because they increase communicative ability in a minimum of time. Complete High Frequency French contains only high frequency language in its more than 420 pages.

To put it simply, I believe in simplicity. My philosophy of language learning is that it is a natural, human process that we all automatically possess. The problem is that many teachers, linguists and academics make this naturally simple process too confusing. In all of my teaching and writing I attempt to take the foreign out of language by explaining to you in English what it is you are learning, and by always teaching the most authentic language possible.
