Like most Americans, I only speak English. At 48 years old, I decided enough! I want to learn another language. Loving France, French food, wine, French seemed like the natural choice. Ooh la la! Or is Oy vey a better sentiment? Tough language. I've been traveling to language school in France 1-2x per year for 3 years and LOVE IT! Being a slow learner, I make incremental improvement each time I go but lose much of that improvement when I return home and have no one to talk to. I found Frantastique, finally, and it is great for the time in-between trips to france. The short, daily exercises are just the right length and I love the humor in the stories and explanations. I believe I will now return to France having lost not quite so much progress. PS--I do several other on-line courses as well, but none are as amusing and entertaining. I never miss a Frantastique lesson which is really the key isn't it? Consistency. I also like the cultural and historical lessons inserted frequently. And oh, I do laugh a lot!
