They work by teaching you the language via audio and books but keep the learning process interesting. The courses come with 2, 3 or 4 books depending on the language. One is entirely in the target language, another explains the dialogue, the other is a book of exercises. You usually follow a family returning to their native country and as each chapter progresses your comprehension increases dramatically.
The books and audio are done to a very high standard and I would recommend their courses to every language learner. In their heyday, Linguaphone offered courses in well over 30 languages, the older courses from the s and 60s are considered their best material because the instruction is more thorough.

The great thing about the AllTalk courese are you can go from zero knowledge in the language to Intermediate level quite quickly. There is a 16 disc version and a 4 disc version. The 16 disc version will obviously take you further. New artwork, new dialogue and an entirely new story line. This artwork is still used today. Im not a fan of the new artwork. The content of the books stayed the same as above but they are now published in softback books with orange covers. This is was a nice personal touch and makes you see that Linguaphone really did have the students best interests at heart.
Below is a letter someone recieved when they bought an Italian course in , the director mentions the student learning Italian with his wife - the customer must have mentioned this on the telephone or in his letter when he ordered the course. You just dont get that nowadays. The letter is typed on a typewriter and hand signed.
Meaning you have to get used to the words being written in their language. Time tested - Linguaphone has been producing language instruction material since the early 20th century. This is highly effective and fun to use. Linguaphone has a choice of 16 languages to choose from in their home study course that takes you to intermediate level.
