Health in French

You never know when you’ll need to talk about your health in French, so it’s best to be prepared. After today’s French language lesson with audio you’ll be able to say if you’re not feeling well, and recognize the French words for a health shop, natural medicine and more.
 
But it’s not always about medical French…
 
Ever heard French people saying santé when they raise their glasses for a toast and wondered what it meant? It’s the expression for cheers in French!

Salut!
I discovered Rocket French years ago when it was available as a download. This course above any others -including live course instruction - has given me the confidence to speak and use the language. My french skills have been invaluable in my multiple travels to France and even Morocco. Feeling in need of review, I am delighted that the new version, with its interactive courses, is here at my convenience. I look forward to the enhancements and more of Paul and Claire that fuel my infectious enthusiasm about the language and culture of France!

I have been working on my French via Rocket French for three years with breaks of a few months here and there while traveling. I find it enjoyable and fulfilling when I jump back into Rocket French. The recent changes in the program have added to the enjoyment and learning experience. Keep up the good work! I appreciate it.

Without Rocket French, I would not have been nearly as comfortable touring – and wine tasting - in France. As you can see from the picture, I had no trouble making myself understood! I was much more relaxed in my travels after spending a few weeks with the Rocket French course.

I tried a *Competitor* and, while it is admittedly well written, I found that the audio portion of Rocket French was absolutely essential to proper pronunciation of French words.

French is not a language that allows you to sound out the syllables. There seems to be many more letters on the page than actually reach the ears. It looks like they use a lot of unnecessary characters. The language does have rules, though, and those rules are well pointed out in this course. Learning the basic grammar early on aided in comprehension immensely. And repeatedly hearing the words, especially while reading them, helped gain an understanding of how they should sound.

The course is set up so that I could pick and choose whichever lessons most suited my needs. After the first few foundational lessons, I found that I could defer some of the topics that I would not need right away.

Learning French is fun this way!

I am particularly impressed with the conversational exercises at then end of the lessons where I can really get to hear how close (or far off) my accent is. I had high-school french 60 years ago, and am now realizing that my accent was way off, and I can now correct it before bad habits become ingrained.

It has been a lot of fun. I look forward to practicing. I can even exercise while listening to the interactive audio. It has been so rewarding that I have gotten my whole family involved. Not that I have mastered the languages, but it has come in handy on vacation. I am now a learner in four languages.
