Reviews - What do customers think about Advanced French (Berlitz Advanced)?
Same method used in most language schools Jul 28, 2009
I've been studying at Alliance Francaise for many years, and this method is usually the method used in most language schools. Since this is advanced, prior knowledge of the french language is required. First, you'll have a conversation and then you'll have to disect the conversation. You'll learn lots of vocabulary and French expressions. The book has parts on setting, grammar, pronunciation and cultural information. The CDs are composed of 1 cd for the conversations, and the other 2 cds for the listening and speaking exercises. I'm already on Level 13 of Alliance Francaise though so I feel that the advance lessons in this book are not that challenging. Also, the other 2 cds for listening and speaking exercises are really more for listening and not speaking. It doesn't ask you to translate English sentences into French. Although it has an activity wherein you'll have to describe things, or explain things, there is no way you could find out if what you're saying is correct. But overall, I like this book because it doesn't deviate that much from the format that I'm used to (e.g. Alter Ego, Panorama, etc..) and also there are lots of content.
Badly Done Sep 11, 2008
The dialogues on the CDs are moderately interesting and useful BUT in order to get the translations, one must download them from a BERLITZ website. Even after accessing the website, I had to call customer service to find where the download was. Ironically, the work book that comes with the CDs has many blank pages at the end. Wouldn't it have made more sense to provide the English translations there than to greatly inconvenience customers by having them search online for the few words that might have been missed on the CDs? It was very foolish of Berlitz to do this.
