This is an excellent self-study course, which can get you to a level of french competence in no time at all. If I get my place on my PGCE it will be due in no small part to having completed this course. Easy to understand, small sections on grammar and recurring vocabulary, which you learn as you practice grammar points, means that by the end of the course you know quite a lot of vocab and enough grammar to get by. I squeezed this course into a couple of weeks out of necessity, but if you took a couple of months over it you could really get something out of it. I’d be very tempted to use the same method to learn another language.

About MeI'm a languages teacher, at least I'm trying to be. One of the many recent PGCE graduates unable to complete their NQT year. In the mean time I'm on supply, meaning I go where I'm sent, teach what I'm told to but on the up side, don't have to plan or mark. Every cloud has a silver lining :).
