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

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!

What a great program. I bought this after looking closely at Fluenz, but decided on Rocket French because of the lesser amount of time that was required per lesson, and because it had voice recording options. I also liked the iPhone and ipad compatibility. The lessons are easy to follow and the teachers are very good at explaining why certain words and phrases are used. A worthy investment if you are trying to learn French.

This is so fun! I work full time so I don't have time to take a language class. I can do Rocket French during lunch. I love that I can download the audio lessons and listen to them while I work out. There are so many ways to learn the same thing over again that it really makes retaining the information easy.

I've stop and started Rocket French several times but now since I've downloaded audio lessons to my MP3 it'll be easier to start over again and keep going since MP3 can go with me anywhere.
