Right from Lesson One, you will be speaking French. Each new unit of information is given an oral workout, called a 'mouvement' in which you actively participate.
There is no printed textbook provided with this course - you need to buy a lined workbook, and take notes as they are dictated (dictation is spelled out, both in English, and in French). The vast majority of the work you will do is oral. You are given the option of writing out your answers by hand, if you do not want to respond orally, when requested to by the tone of a chime.
The serial and oral method only introduces one new item at a time - with each lesson you typically learn 10 new words, and 2 - 3 new grammatical constructions.
Each new word or grammatical point is given a workout in a graded series of questions, which you are expected to answer in French. These begin very simply, and slowly increase in complexity over the course of the lessons.
