Fairfield Language Technology Rosetta Stone French Level 1 with Audio Companion Homeschool Edition, Version 3

Rosetta Stone's interactive, immersion-method course has helped thousands of students to easily master a new language. Vivid imagery, native voices, and real-life exercises foster speaking, understanding, reading and writing intuitively from the first exercise to the last, while speech recognition technology provides instant feedback and improved pronunciation. Grammar and spelling components build comprehensive skills, while real-life simulated conversations test fluency.

Rosetta Stone students progress independently at their own pace. Parents can choose whether to use a preloaded lesson plan or full-year curriculum track, create their own lessons, or use an alternate program to focus on specific skills such as listening & speaking or reading & writing. Students are tested periodically, automatically advancing as their scores improve through reviewing weaker areas. At the completion of a unit, students complete a "Milestone Activity" in which they must speak into the microphone and participate in a conversation. The built-in reporting tool gives parents the ability to view, print and export student results, including completed exercises, current lesson progress, scores, and time spent learning.

New! Rosetta Stone now includes an audio companion! Reinforce your language skills anywhere, anytime with five audio activities that correspond with the computer lessons and provide additional conversation practice. At home or on the go, you can redeem the time by improving your pronunciation, vocabulary, phrases, speaking & conversation skills. MP3 Files.

Rosetta Stone French Level 1, Homeschool Edition, Version 3 provides instruction in basic conversational skills, greetings and introductions, colors, adjectives, numbers, prepositions, definite & indefinite articles, singular & plural nouns, family relations, the five senses and time of day.

    This is the best program I have found for learning a foreign language. It takes some time to go through the materials to understand the recommended program of study, but once established, it is an excellent tool. We also have the older version of R.S. Spanish and I hesitated to buy Rosetta Stone again because my children complained about the repetition required when they missed a concept. Instead, for French we tried other programs. We have found that nothing works for us like Rosetta Stone, so we are back to stay and they are not complaining anymore. The support staff at Rosetta Stone is always helpful when I have a question about anything pertaining to their product.

    My daughter is being home schooled for the first time this year and we decided to use Rosetta Stone's French program. We were looking for our curriculum to be easy to use as well as fun. This program really fits that description! My daughter loves it! Because she loves it, she does it on her own....without me telling her to! I also love it because, as a new home school mom who also is working from home, I needed to be able to easily check her work and her progress so that I was sure she was doing well. The home schooler's program really makes it easy for me to do that! It's so user friendly! We had always heard that even if you take a couple of years of a foreign language, you'll probably not be able to really be fluent in it because the programs out there don't teach it in a way that makes it stick. But Rosetta Stone teaches it in such a way that it makes it relevent to my daughter. Because she is able to see with her eyes the word being used and connect it with the sound and pronounciation of the word, it is relevant and sticks in her head. It's a great program and I would recommend it as The program to use for foreign language!
