The Most Comprehensive Language Line on the Market!

From the publishers of the nation's #1 Instant Immersion language line comes the Instant Immersion French Pro suite, an easy to follow, yet more comprehensive approach to French that focuses on the 3 critical components of language study - Listening, Reading and Writing. While this 7 CD suite continues to emphasize an immersion environment - the best method for learning to speak a foreign language quickly - it contains brand new curriculum focusing on composition, conjugation, phonetics, grammar, dictation, and comprehension. You will quickly move from a beginner to an advanced student with the four CDROM's from Tell Me More, Europe's best-selling language learning software. Each program - TMM Beginner, TMM Intermediate, and TMM Advanced - contains a comprehensive glossary, video clips, interactive dialogue lessons that use speech recognition technology, and advanced speech analysis (which evaluates and corrects your pronunciation and intonation of individual words and complete phrases). The fifth CD-ROM, French Vocabulary Builder, is designed to expand the Tell Me More lessons by increasing your terminology with essential words used in everyday conversations. French Plus, the sixth disc, provides 22 fully interactive lessons that reinforce the fundamental concepts of the French language. You can even continue your lessons away from the computer with the bonus French Audio CD, which is dedicated to improving your dialogue skills. Whether you're studying for business, travel or school, Instant Immersion French Pro presents the most effective teaching methods and technology available for fluently speaking, reading and writing French and you get results fast!

Reviews:

Discovery School

"At first, this package of 7 CDs is confusing and rather disappointing. There are no clear instructions that give users a sense of where to begin, and if they follow the numerical order of the CDs, they'll be frustrated.

"On closer inspection, however, some of the individual programs in the set are very worthwhile, especially for children. First and foremost, forget playing the program in numerical sequence. Children should begin with disk #7, which is called French Plus and is actually Rosetta Stone Explorer. This title is unique in its approach to foreign language learning. Although it is rather repetitive, the learning process is intuitive and natural for young children. The program teaches through immersion, and avoids explicit instruction or translations. The beauty of this title is that the learning is broken down into digestible phrases, and the challenge builds gradually. This is a well-balanced title, both in presentation and approach."

"Confused? Actually, confusion tends to be the only real problem with this program. Basically, the package features a mix of individual programs that don't all "fit" with each other, and it lacks a good manual that would help minimize the confusion. Look past this disorganization, however, and you'll find some foreign language learning "gems" tucked away in this package. It is certainly not intuitive to have your young child begin with the seventh CD of a package marked "Pro", but you will appreciate the program if you do."
