Hello, I have been a Rocket French member for some time but have to admit I have neglected this excellent teaching tool for some time. In the meantime I have completed the Michel Thomas CD's from basic to advanced, and used various other French learning resources. I'm by no means capable in French but do not really want to start Rocket French at beginners level. It's a difficult question, but would anyone be able to advise on where would be a good stage to start. or should I just dip in and see where I'm most confident. Thanks
Advice please on what level to start

Hi - I actually just restarted from Level 1 after finishing RF Levels 1-3 so I could go through the new "Write It" tests that weren't there last year (before that, I finished Rosetta Stone 1-5) and I find that it doesn't hurt to re-cover the basics. I'm testing at B2 level now (I also started working with a tutor three months ago, but I tested at B1 after completing RF1-3), but I still trip up on some things, and when I questioned some of the grammar using the feedback function, I received a pretty good explanation on why it was structured the way it was. So I guess my answer is to start from scratch, breeze through the easy stuff, but work methodically through it and you may find that there were things that you *thought* you knew but actually didn't.

Hi, I think your advice is well made, I'll start from basic, it will be good revision. Thanks very much for your reply
