Salut, my name’s Marie-Claire Rivière, I’m the host of Rocket French.

I'm from Versailles, near Paris, which means my native language is French. Like you, I know how hard it can be to learn a new language, because I remember trying to learn English.

Together with my English speaking colleague, Paul, I want to help you to speak and understand French, and cut your learning time in half, with my Rocket French online course.

I've travelled all over the world, and I’ve found that speaking the language is a great way to meet new people and discover new things. I really want to make your French learning a rewarding and fun experience!

This is one of the best French programs I have come across and it won't break your bank to buy. It is definitely geared towards adults who seriously want to learn and understand a new language, which is a refreshing change for me over the unstructured, cartoonish language programs that seem to be everywhere.

I've been delighted with the entire program so far. Particularly good were the i-pod downloads with Paul and Marie Claire. I'm learning French slowly, but I'm learning. I have Rosetta Stone and Pimsler.... they don't match up to Rocket Languages .

I have been very impressed with the tutor element--it has helped my pronunciation immensely. I also enjoy the newsletters and the ability to contact someone when I have a question. And the various lesson plans are kept interesting and generally useful for me. I visited France last year and enrolled in an immersion language program--I thanked my good fortune for R.F!
