My name is Brielle, I’m 23 and I kind of spontaneously decided to try to learn French about two months ago.

This summer I’ll be spending a month in France and even though I’m spending it with friends that do speak a lot of English, I thought it’d be nice to know some French. So when I first decided to learn I paid a few local French students for private lessons, but I kind of learned pretty quick that even if somebody knows their language pretty well it doesn’t mean they can transfer their knowledge to you that easily.

So after that, when I pretty much took the 6 free trial lessons on Rocket French, after my 6th trial I purchased the full downloadable version, and I’m pretty happy I did that.

The program is organized, its comprehensible, there is audio which I think is the most, you know, the biggest help, there is homework to test yourself, you can go at your own pace, and something about teaching yourself a language is pretty rewarding I think. At the rate I’m going with the lessons, I’m pretty excited about getting to France. I might not be quite fluent by then, but I will have all the confidence to get by I think.

Overall it’s a sweet program. I haven’t tried any other language programs to compare it to, but I guess that says a lot in itself.

I’d recommend this to anyone with a sincere drive to learn a language. Rocket French puts all of the information you need at your fingertips, it’s in a comprehensible and fun manner, you just have to make the time. It’s great, yeah. Thanks so much. Bye now.

This language tool seems like a wonderful resource for learning a language with confidence. The dialogue exercises force one to take those first, precarious steps of actually speaking the new language, which can be the most intimidating facet of the process.

I undertook to learn French on my own, beginning with the Pimsleur method. I found this to be of great help to me, having the type of ear that easily hears language and its nuances. However, the Pimsleur method is limited, both in its exposure to grammar and verb forms and in its exposure to vocabulary. In searching for another self-taught method to continue my learning of French, I found and purchased Rocket French.

Through listening to the Rocket French lessons, which I do from an MP3 player that broadcasts through my car radio on my way to and from work, I have found just what I needed. I am continuing to learn French on my own terms, and very effectively at that.
