4 2 Welcome to the Michel Thomas Method Congratulations on purchasing a truly remarkable way to learn a language. With the Michel Thomas Method there s no reading, no writing and no homework. Just sit back, absorb, and soon you ll be speaking another language with confidence. The Michel Thomas Method works by breaking a language down into its component parts and enabling you to reconstruct the language yourself to form your own sentences and to say what you want, when you want. By learning the language in small steps, you can build it up yourself to produce ever more complicated sentences. In the French, German, Italian and Spanish Total courses, Michel Thomas himself teaches two students who have no previous knowledge of the language or, in the case of the Perfect courses, students who know only what they learned in the Total courses. You join in as the third student in Michel s class, and learn with them. The courses are unscripted: you hear the students progression in the studio from absolute beginners to confident speakers including their mistakes and Michel s subsequent corrections. The French, German, Italian and Spanish Vocabulary Builder + courses were devised after Michel s death by Dr Rose Lee Hayden, who worked closely with him in his language school in New York. The methodology is again cumulative, but in these courses it was decided that the teacher would be assisted by two native speakers in order to advance learners in their pronunciation as well as their vocabulary. The Arabic, Dutch, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese and Russian Start, Total and Perfect courses were developed by the team at Hodder that produced Michel s original French, German, Italian and Spanish Total and Perfect

5 courses. The teachers, who are native speakers, or else are assisted by native speakers, similarly teach students with no previous knowledge of the language and carefully follow Michel Thomas s Method. The Arabic, Mandarin and Russian Vocabulary Builder + courses follow the same unscripted format, with the same teaching teams and students learning in the studio. 3 The key to your success in these all-audio courses is for you to understand what you learn, and then to internalize it. To do so, you must take an active part in the process. When the teacher asks, How do you say?, use your pause button to give yourself time to think out your answer and say it out loud (or in your head). Then release the pause button, and listen to the answer given on the recording. In this way you will experience a constant sense of progression, a constant sense of learning, that you will find exciting, stimulating and self-rewarding. Perfected over 25 years, the all-audio Michel Thomas Method has been used by millions of people around the world. Now it s your turn. To get started, simply insert your disc and press play!

6 4 About Michel Thomas Michel Thomas ( ) was a gifted linguist who mastered more than ten languages in his lifetime and became famous for teaching much of Hollywood s A list how to speak a foreign language. Film stars such as Woody Allen, Emma Thompson and Barbra Streisand paid thousands of dollars each for face-to-face lessons. Michel, a Polish Jew, developed his method after discovering the untapped potential of the human mind during his traumatic wartime experiences. The only way he survived this period of his life, which included being captured by the Gestapo, was by concentrating and placing his mind beyond the physical. Fascinated by this experience, he was determined that after the war he would devote himself to exploring further the power of the human mind, and so dedicated his life to education. In 1947, he moved to Los Angeles and set up the Michel Thomas Language Centers, from where he taught languages for over fifty years in New York, Beverly Hills and London. Michel Thomas died at his home in New York City on Saturday 8th January He was 90 years old.

7 Index to Start Hindi 5 English words used (relatively) unchanged in Hindi are not listed. Transliteration The Hindi is transliterated in this track listing, so that you can read it even if you don t know the Devanagari script. We ve used the following conventions: Final a in a word represents a long aa sound, and final i is a long ee (larka, boy ; bhi, also ). r represents a rolled r, as in Spanish or Italian. The double dot on the ï in naï indicates that the a and i should be pronounced separately. The apostrophe in shaa er ( poet ) indicates a break between aa and er. To show some sounds that don t exist in English we ve had to use some extra symbols: D ñ R T hard d, with the tongue bent upwards and backwards (technically called retroflex ) sign to indicate nasal sound (made through your nose); don t pronounce it as n a flapped sound, like in the US English pronunciation of the first t in Got it! hard t, with the tongue bent upwards and backwards (technically called retroflex ) Pausing your playing device During Tracks 2 and 3 (CD1), we provide short tabla sequences as cues to prompt you to pause your playing device while you work out your answer to the teacher s questions. From Track 4 onwards there are no more cues, but you should still pause your playing device while you work out your answers to the teacher s questions. CD1 Track 1 Introduction CD1 Track 2 Wow! Hey!
