How does it work?
During this two-hour one-to-one seminar, Michel Thomas widens your vocabulary and teaches authentic phrases and expressions. It is the ideal course for brushing up on your language skills, or as a follow-on to the Michel Thomas Foundation German course.

This new edition includes remastered audio and comes in new, eco-friendly recyclable packaging.
Why is it so successful?
'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel Thomas
Michel Thomas believed that the greatest barrier to any form of learning was stress: stress from worrying about remembering what you are being taught, stress from being afraid to make a mistake, stress from failing.
With the Michel Thomas Method, all the attention is focused on removing stress and tension from the learning environment. The teacher takes on full responsibility for your understanding, and therefore your remembering, of what is being taught. In fact, the Michel Thomas Method forbids you from trying to memorize. There's no writing, no books, no homework.
The Michel Thomas Method works by stripping away all inessential language and breaking down the most important language into its component parts. Crystal-clear building blocks are then presented, and only when they are absorbed and understood is the next piece of the puzzle introduced, enabling you to reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want.
