    I’m trying to decide between Rosetta Stone & Tell Me More for a ninth grade student? 

    Pros, cons, likes, dislikes……lay them on me.

    Then I’ll try to get over the sticker shock Sealed.

    uggg – while I can’t help you there, I can sypathize on the sticker shock!  We are going to be going with The Easy French – but no matter which program I pick, it will be by far the most expensive purchase for homeschooling we have EVER made!

    I don’t know if this meets your criteria, but we just started using Mango (my daughter is pretty young and I don’t have much criterias—just wanted some language exposure/speaking/native speakers and online so I don’t have to do anything right now!)   I get it free from a neighboring library.  If you find a library that has it, often they’ll sell a membership for like $30/yr. and you can use all the languages the program offers.  Just ignore if that’s not what you’re looking for:)  Gina

    Although I haven’t used it and know nothing, you can look up more about it. I came across it the other day at Memoria Press:

    We just had a discussion on this a couple weeks ago…here’s the link!  We are going with Easy French, it’s Christian based and they emphasize reaching the world for the L*rd.

    We tried First Start French by Memoria Press, but the pronunciation CD was AWFUL!  We have been using Learn French in 10 minutes a Day with a CD-Rom and that has been fun.  The computer componant is nice.  I guess that is why I have narrowed it down to the two programs in my first post.   No Mango at my library, so that isn’t an option Undecided

     I’ll check out The Easy French.

    Thanks for all of the input.

    OK, The Easy French looks good; I think you just saved me about $200. Laughing

    Heather, if you are willing to look at other options.  🙂  Personally I found The Easy . . . series silly and not equivalent to a high school level course.  We use Breaking the French Barrier.  It is $65, comes with well-done CD’s.  http://www.tobreak.com/the-program/the-french-series

    Bookworm, I value your opinion very much!  I will certainly look Smile.

    Bookworm, you were right!  I am glad you chimed in.  Breaking the Barrier looks much more like the kind of French course I imagined for a highschool student. 

    Thank You!!!
