Michel Thomas was a language teacher who used his own approach to language teaching to help people to learn languages quickly. The emphasis of this method is on a more relaxed, informal approach to learning, without books. He has produced CDs (usually 8-packs of CDs or introductory twin-packs) for German, Italian, Spanish and French.
