My husband and I tried Rosetta Stone, Rocket French, French Pod 101, Duo Lingo, Coffee Break French, etc etc. None of them come CLOSE to Alexa's French lessons. If you really want to get a great foundation in the French language, and not just learn some tourist phrases or random sentences that won't really help you, than this is the program for you. She is an actual teacher, a really GOOD teacher! Sooo much info, so you can listen and read all of her pdfs, do homeworks, reading comprehension exercises, dictiation, it goes on and on! It has really helped prepare us for our move to France, merci beaucoup Alexa!!!!!
