***FOR HIGH-BEGINNER TO LOW-INTERMEDIATE LEARNERS***Master French conversational connectors (or transition phrases) in the next 30 days, with this innovative, story-based immersion method. Just read one chapter per day, complete the exercises, and watch as conversational connectors fall into place and improve your fluency without a hitch! I love Olly's work - and you will too! - Barbara Oakley, PhD, Author of New York Times bestseller A Mind for Numbers Most French students try to learn French through memorisation, especially when it comes to learning new vocabulary or the all-important conversational connectors (and, or, however, therefore, for example etc). This doesn't work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there is so much vocabulary to learn and it's impossible to hold it all in your head while you're speaking. It's also not a natural approach ... native speakers don't learn new words with memory tricks, after all!
With 30-Day Mastery: Conversational Connectors you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on memorising anything... you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you're reading the story, you will find that all of the conversational connectors in the text will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of this book, you'll have a native-like command of French conversational connectors that will amaze you and your friends!
