    I have downloaded and done a bit of the first Michel Thomas method and have to say it seems to work very well. I'm going to start it again later this evening and try and do an hour every evening. On top of that I have some TrainSignal SQL 2008 training to do as well - it's like being in school all over again.....

    I have the Spanish one ... just haven't got round to using it yet. You can get it as a phone app as well.
    Im using the Spanish one in conjunction with my college course and must say its great. Its cheesy but works very very well!

    To keep your ear in, so to speak, you can read French newspapers and listen to French radio. There's a French talk radio on LW, and you can listen to their radio stations through their websites.

    Personally I found the best way to learn was immersion - go to France and just speak the lingo.

    English always starts with a capital "E". One of the sad facts about the internet is that people are careless about what they write and also seldom reread and edit what they read. As a result the English language is eroding! Lots of luck learning French. Rosetta Stone is very good and the suggestion about singing in French is also good. Did you ever notice people's accents go away while they sing. It maybe be difficult for a Londoner to understand someone from California when they are speaking, but singing they will sound very similar.

    Would that include films like Taxi, District 13 and 22 Bullets?

    I did a 12 week Spanish course, had the audio CD and the iPhone app, went to Lanzarote and spent the entire holiday ordering from a barman from Bromsgrove and a Scottish waitress!

    Typical!

    I use this site for learning another language. Purely verbal course and enjoying it, no spam yet either. See if you can find a site with the same concept and an MP3-based listen, repeat course (suggest you take a look at lesson 1 to see what I mean).
