In this specially developed course you will hear the voice of Michel Thomas as he leads a class of two students. These students are novices who have little or no knowledge of the language they are being taught. Their responses to Michel Thomas are not scripted and they have received no additional instruction or preparation – just the guidance from Michel Thomas that you will hear. You will participate in this class actively and learn along with the students.
This radically different approach means that you will learn the German language in “real time” conditions, that is in the same way that the students on the recording learn, There is no need to stop the recording to do homework, additional exercises, or vocabulary memorisation. Therefore, unlike other learning methods you may have encountered, you will not be set unrealistic or unachievable goals. The success of the Michel Thomas method is proven by the very results that you hear from the students on the recording and, at the same time, from you as you make your own progress! For the first time ever, the amazing teaching method of the worlds greatest language teacher, Michel Thomas, is available to everyone, not just the rich and famous. These all-audio courses, published by hodder & Stroughton, provide an accelerated method for language learning that is truly revolutionary.
