An American in Paris found a fly in his soup.
Snapping his fingers, he shouted "Garcon! Regardez la mouche!"
The waiter looked down his nose in contempt. "It is le mouche, M'sieur."
"Wow," said the American, "you've sure got good eyesight."

I haven't tried the French version of this package, but if it's
like the Spanish and German, I can say... An all-audio (cassette),
no-reading-required offering, though the Listening Guide is more
than just a script, expanding on the audio lessons with additional
information. Has a rather heavy emphasis on conjugation and
inflexion, perhaps too heavy for the beginner. For beginners, the
All-Audio French would probably be a better choice.

An all-audio (cassette), no-reading-required offering. Good for

its translation, another word is spoken, then its translation...
This is the older non-music-enhanced version. It may have been
superseded by the music-enhanced version by now.
