A genuine alternative to actual classes,
This review is from: TELL ME MORE French v10 10 levels (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Most computer or CD language courses that are available are useful but are no real substitute to taking proper classes and really learning the language to a high level whilst getting genuine feedback. Tell Me More is different. This is a fully interactive course where you will be judged, helped, corrected - everything you would get in a classroom or one-to-one teaching environment. It is suitable for beginners or those with a reasonable grasp of the language who wish to become more fluent - you can begin at different levels, and the level recommends a level for you after an initial test (though it is perhaps a little overoptimistic and I would recommend starting a couple of levels below). There are a variety of ways to learn and this helps to keep it interesting. Obviously if you are not really serious about learning then this isn't for you due to its high price, but if you can afford the outlay and you are determined to go through with it then the price can be justified as being less or similar to a series of one-to-one sessions with a french tutor - and it is also of course a lot more convenient, and ready at your beck and call as often as you wish.
The obvious gripe, and one which is mentioned by all the reviewers, is that the headset is a bit cheap and flimsy. For this sort of price you would expect something more impressive, and whilst it is functional, if you are using it a lot you may wish to purchase something more comfortable.
