Not bad for a change-up from CDs. Moreover, the French words appear more times than not on your screen so you get a visual fundamental as to the words and phrases one is learning. The quizzes at the end of each section are good reinforcement. Backing up or reviewing a section is easy--something I find difficult at least on my vehicle's CD player. Bonne chance!
I purchased this for my grandchildren (ages 8 and 12) and they were very excited about learning french. Unfortunately this is for older children high school and up. I am disappointed that the description didn't explain that major detail.
My wife has learned several languages from books and tapes but wanted something with a simultaneous visual display so I bought her this intro. She quit it after the first lesson and asked for my audiotapes."Too much silliness," she said. It apparently is for the modern youth with a short attention span and a need to be entertained while propping up the illusion of learning something. This is not a serious way to learn to speak a language. Nor is it entertaining while actually teaching as on some PBS courses.
