I'm learning French! I figured out how to access Rosetta Stone foreign language program free through the library. I downloaded the program and now I can learn any language I want. How fun! The kids have been playing with it to learn Spanish, and I'm learning French. I figured it would help a lot with schooling. We've been reading a lot about Normandy and the history of France and I have no idea how to pronounce the names!
Now, when I'm reading Little Duke (about the young duke of Normandy) to them, I can at least sound like I know what I'm talking about. I was showing off for Kyle and said, "Look what I can say: Un garcon sous un avion!" He asked what that means and I translate: "The boy is under the airplane." Clearly, I'm learning very practical, conversational French.
If you haven't experienced Rosetta Stone, you simply must. It's quite addictive!
