Teach Yourself French Reviews

Teach Yourself French
Learning a new language can be so worthwhile – not only is it incredibly fun, it’s also useful too. Generally speaking, those who have competency in more than one language do better at work, are more likely to achieve promotion, are more capable travellers and are more open to new experiences. What’s more, French is a great language choice – not only is it a widely spoken language in Europe and beyond, it’s also widely regarded as one of the most culture-driven and romantic languages, so it’s perfect if you’re looking to broaden your horizons a little. Our Teach Yourself French Reviews considers the most popular and well-known language learning courses and books to provide our readers with an in-depth knowledge of the positives and negatives of the various products on offer.

Learning a language isn’t normally something that’s particularly easy to achieve, so we looked out for products that offered customers a new, exciting, innovative and fun way to introduce language learning into their daily lives. Most people don’t have the time to attend classes or can’t afford a personal tutor, so we also looked out for products and services that could easily be combined with the pressures of modern day living and didn’t cost the earth, too. We came up with a vast collection of popular services, ranging from books, to CD and DVD Courses to online learning materials and so called “immersion” courses, all of which aim to get you speaking fluently in the shortest possible time. All of these methods have advantages and disadvantages, outlined in our reviews and our buying guide for this category, but all represent a great way to get started with learning a new language, so it was pretty exciting for us to review them all.

Taking into account all of these factors, and more (including the emphasis placed on particular skills such as speaking, writing, grammar and pronunciation; and the value for money and variety offered), our top ten in this category are a brilliant set of courses that we’re sure will inspire you to learn French. Taking the No.1 Choice Award in this category is Rocket French Premium, a fantastic language learning resource that’s perfect for beginners and uses a number of different learning methods to encourage all-round development of language skills. We found the course entertaining and enjoyable, so we’re sure you will too. Other options in this category (as it’s all about finding a resource that matches your needs specifically) include the industry goliath Rosetta Stone French, Berlitz French Premier and one of our favourites, Transparent French (Complete Collection) – all of which offer great language learning opportunities at reasonable prices.

Although all of the services we have reviewed in this category vary considerably in terms of what’s on offer and how you are encouraged to learn, all have a vast following of avid users and a number of positive elements, so it really was difficult to choose which service would make it into our top ten. Follow our links to check out our full product reviews for all of the information you need. Whichever product you choose, enjoy it – it’s meant to be fun! Bonne chance!
