    Review quote
    "The nearest thing to painless learning" The Times "A unique and perfectly brilliant way of learning languages" Stephen Fry "The most extraordinary experience of my life" Emma Thompson "Thomas makes it simple" Sunday Times "Works like a dream" Daily Telegraph "Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed" The Guardian "Five minutes in and you already feel like you're winning" Time Out "I've tried many courses including Rosetta Stone but I've finally found a language method that works. I'm doing the French course and I can now hold a decent conversation with my parents' neighbors in France!" Aubrey Parsons, Michel Thomas Method customer
