Bucky Va a Paris!
Learn Conversational French The Way It Is
Spoken In France...
The Easy Way!
If you are interested in learning how to speak
conversational French, and you want the learning process to be as
easy as possible, then Bucky Va a Paris! is for you!
Modeled on the innovative TPR Storytelling® method, Bucky Va à
Paris! is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to learn
conversational French and "get around in France" vocabulary.
also be used to supplement learning outside of class. Students with
extended absences, or accelerated students, can use the Bucky
program to learn on their own.
Memorization is not used. Bucky is a repetition-filled text. Over
seven hours of travel structures are presented on 6 CD’s. Each
structure is repeated in the form of a barrage of multiple,
non-stop, similar questions. As you answer each question, you
internally acquire the travel terms.
If you compare your brain to a computer, memorization places French
structures on the desktop (the pre-frontal cortex). But to truly
learn the language, the structures must be placed into the hard
drive (the posterior cortex and the cerebellum). This is what the
repetitive process of the Bucky program accomplishes.
Each selection is written in a way to allow you to grasp the meaning
of the words from context only. A dictionary is not needed. Some
facts may seem distorted or exaggerated. This “catches” the
attention of the mind and facilitates learning.
At the end of each selection, a series of questions based on learned
vocabulary, but in the "I" form, is presented. This key section
allows you to practice speaking in the first person, after having
first listened to the main text in the third person.
It is easiest
to first learn French in the narrative (third person) form, but then
those forms have to be transferred to the first person, since that
is the form you must master to be able to get around in French
speaking countries. Luckily, it happens that in the French language
the two forms are often identical in sound and so are easily
What about grammar? By doing the work on this CD you learn
structure. Structure is grammar, and once learned in this way, you
can enjoy self-expression in French. The study of grammar is not
needed to learn a language. It can be studied later, once the
language is learned, if desired.
At the end of the program, basic French expressions, greetings,
numbers, etc. are presented. These selections, again, offer
repetitive practice. In addition, there are also sections on French
pronunciation and grammar for those interested. There is also a list
of words in English which are derived from the French. This list is
useful to high school students preparing for the verbal portion of
the SAT examination.

I'm Really Enjoying This!
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say that I'm really
enjoying the Bucky program.
I’ve been listening to the CDs over and over and haven’t gotten
tired of them. I'm just starting the fifth CD, and I listen to the
program every day on my commute.
My pronunciation and retention have improved immensely, and the
program overall is so much clearer than in books!
Thank you so much for developing this program!”
