I like the Pimsleur program for learning a language. It teaches without using a book. It teaches one the language the way you learned your native tongue: by doing; hearing and speaking. Plus, you can acquire quite a good accent with the program.


I'm learning French by two means, with both Pimsleur and a Nintendo DS French Coach program. They both are very good and seem to fill in the other's weak spots.

I grew up speaking Spanish, so learning French was just a hop, skip and a jump away. It was one of the best things I ever did, because it opened up a world I never would have known otherwise: the world of Paul Verlaine, Gustave Flaubert and Colette.

Now that you are learning Spanish, you can finally read Pablo Neruda en espanol--now how great is that!


i would like to learn french.
