Description Michel Thomas Advanced Review Course de Michel Thomas:
Michel Thomas materials have been phenomenally successful since they were first published some six years ago. The brand new Review courses are a major new offering. For the first time, the student can quickly and easily review the entire teaching contents of the main course, to establish which areas need to be revisited or to consolidate learning. The Reviews can be used in many ways: when the student reaches the end of the main course to check or consolidate learning- as a quick refresher when the student returns to the main course after a lapse of time- for the newcomer to Michel Thomas looking for an overview of what the main courses contain. All the main teaching points have been lifted from the corresponding Advanced course and are contained on just 1 CD. The student at home hears Michel teaching a specific point, there is a pause which allows time for the student to give his/her response to Michel's prompt, followed by Michel giving the correct response. If the student has struggled or given an incorrect answer, s/he can use the index in the accompanying booklet to locate the area of the main course where the specific language point was being taught in depth and can return to the main course to work through the relevant section again, quickly and efficiently. Only Michel's words and phrases are on the new CD, so the course is summarised succinctly and with a new, snappy pace.
Michel Thomas had an amazing life. Born in Poland, he spent his early years in Germany and then in France, where he studied psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris. When war broke out, he fought with the Resistance and suffered imprisonment in slave labour camps. At the end of the war he joined the US liberation army and later settled in the US where he established his world-famous language school. For more than 50 years he taught languages to the rich and famous and became the world's most sought-after language teacher.
