"I purchased the "Basics" video thinking I was going to get a silly, fun explanation of the basics. It is true that the video focuses on the basics and actually covers the same material our French 1 book does in the first 2 chapters. HOWEVER, I would send this video back if I could for 2 really important reasons:
1. My students fell asleep watching it for about 15 minutes.
2. Even more important - and the most disappointing part of all - the people speaking french had very strong American accents. Even my french 1 students could hear the bad pronunciation. If you are using this to supplement your French program at the High School level, don't waste your money."
