Rosetta Stone French

I have spent so much money enrolling on French courses and because of work having to miss half of them and getting nowhere.

The nature of my business is that I have to deal with many European suppliers and feel very humble when they take the time to speak my language and I know little or nothing of theirs.

Rosetta Stone comes to the rescue ! It is an interactive way of learning a language and you can seek the help of native speakers via a web link. This works very well and is great for people on the move like me. The Rosetta system is easy and logical to use and really does work as it teaches French as the French speak it rather than someone in a classroom chanting words at you. It is very interactive and analyses and helps you improve your speech.

The system consists of 5 courses starting with the basic school boy French and developing into full spoken French as the French speak it. This is the most helpful aspect as it teaches you listen skills as well so that you don't have to do a mental translation each time you hear words or ask the speak to slow down.

It is slot of money but you get a lot for it but you still have to do a great deal of work to progress on. Where this system scores is in its portability, take it with you on your laptop and you can learn anytime anywhere. It works for people like me who cannot attend regular classes etc.

All in all an excellent way of learning with lots of help and it is especially suited to the busy person who has a hectic life but wants to learn fast and accurately.
