French or Bust!


After a layoff of...let's see...oh my, 41 years, I've taken up French again, at the age of 57-going-on-58. Yes, language acquisition is generally considered a child's game (we learn our first language effortlessly at around age 2-3), but I have some things going for me that a child doesn't: maturity, and knowledge of how language works. And a few years of French back in middle- and high school. I've started with Rosetta Stone, but also have gotten my hands on a bunch of other, lesser known products, and I'll be sharing my experiences with them as I go along. I've been spending nearly two hours a day with Rosettta and am making great progress. See my review. À bientôt!
