Everyone who has asked me about foreign languages knows that I am a huge Rosetta Stone fan. This year however, when I wanted to have some dedicated geography time, the easiest way to make room for it in the schedule was to temporarily drop our formal Spanish studies. Some friends of ours recently went to France though, and the kids' interest was piqued, so I decided to throw in a little daily French lesson. I did take French for four years, no sense putting that to waste. I just didn't know the best way to organize what I introduced. I found this lovely list at about.com (a favorite portal): Learn French - Self-Study Checklist. There are no buzzers or bells, but it definitely gets the job done as far as organizing information and giving complete explanations. Hope this helps you. Bonne chance!
