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.
