disappointing Mar 17, 2009
I am a veteran homeschooler, familiar with French. I waited for this program with high hopes, but was disappointed and abandoned it halfway through the year. There are not enough exercises to cement the concepts and I spent a lot of time creating extra assignments. The author suggests the teacher drill the students with extra assignments; it would have been very helpful if the author had provided them, especially for those who do not already know some French. The oral component on the CD is too brief. French students need to hear French, not just work short written exercises. It would have been much more helpful to have more than just the vocabulary and brief grammar concepts recited on the CD. Students need a variety of sentences to listen to for each lesson. I went back to using RosettaStone to my children's relief. First Start French explained the grammar (conjugation of verbs, for example) but RosettaStone gave them understanding, drill and pronunciation.
