What have others used for high school french besides Rosetta Stone?gcbsmommyParticipant
I am wondering about this, too! I have the Rosetta Stone program (French I & II) picked up at a used book sale… Is Cherrydale’s french for elemtary instruction only? I am not sure what to do.missceegeeParticipant
I just purchased Breaking the French Barrier vol. 1 yesterday in the iBook version. It is amazing! Can’t wait for dd to use it. Now to firm up our tutor situation.
Since you have Breaking the Barrier already, what do you think about pacing? Times per week? Amount of time to allot each day? How much mom involvement? I think I like it from what I can see online. I think I can get a tutor as well. My hubby’s high school French teacher just retired and she lives 5 minutes from us. She is great. I am thinking of contacting her if we end up with Breaking the Barrier.
i’m just looking through it. The tutor has her own materials from teaching that she prefers, so for us it may be supplemental, I’m unsure. I won’t be involved bc I know 0 French. I think that we will be having 4-5 days per week for 45-60m. A little long, but I think that is what it will be.blue jParticipant
Christie, please update after your dd has used this for a while. I am keeping this as a possibility in my hip pocket should it be needed this next year.HannahParticipant
I speak fluent French and owe much to the series “Moi Je Parle Francais” which I used in (home) high school. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I’m still new to Charlotte Mason (this is our first year) but I think she would approve of the series.petitemomParticipant
Hannah I have never seen “Moi je parle Francais”. I just looked it up and cannot find much info on it. How would I know which level to use?
