DS13 wants to learn French. Not only that, he wants to do it during the several hours/week we spend driving around, which means Rosetta Stone (my preferred method) is out as we need an audio-only course. He gets car-sick easily, so he'll have to do without any accompanying workbook and stick to 100% audio.
I've found the following language courses on audio CD which seem to fit the bill:
- Michel Thomas
- Behind the Wheel
Despite the good things I've heard about Michel Thomas, I'm leaning away from it as apparently the man has a noticeable accent (both in English and in French). Behind the Wheel sounds only so-so in terms of content, though more affordable than Pimsleur.
Anyone have any experience with these or other audio-driven language courses? DS is very motivated to do this, and will have ample opportunity for conversational French as he's learning.
