    About French learning software


    Hi folks,

    Where can I find Open Source software running on Linux to learn French, preferable with audio and interactive. Not many of them can be found on Sourceforge.

    I don't think there are many, if any. You might try looking around at freelanguage.org to see if they offer anything that you can use.

    Hopefully, some of the others here can suggest something better.

    It isn't open source or even free, but Rosetta Stone does work on WINE, just a thought.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I've never tried it myself, but I've heard that it's the best language software out there.

    Hello !

    I know that's nothing to do with what you want, but I'm French and If you need to learn my language, I could help you.
    Otherwise, I don't know any software that could fit you.

    Hi ozar,

    Thank for your link which is used by some companies marketing their products.

    Through intensive googling I found some of them.

    BBC is one amongst them.
    BBC - Languages - French - French Steps


    There is nothing to do with Open Source. I made a wrong search at the beginning. There are organizations actively introducing/pushing French, same for other languages

    Hi IroniK,

    Thanks for your kind offer.

    I have been learning French several years ago. Now I want to come back. The difficulties encountered by me in learning French are;

    1)
    Pronunciation

    2)
    To speak/write fluent French language like a native French

    Code:
    pratiquer la langue franšaise comme un vrai Franšais

    If translating from English to French word to word it never works.


    I imagine whether it would be better doing the other way round, souring the courses "teaching French to learn English". It would be helpful if you can make search for me in this direction. TIA

    Hi IroniK,

    Thanks for your kind offer. I would contact you off the forum.

    On my recent search on Internet I found tons of French courses on YouTube, including written and oral lessons. All of them are free. Wonderful, YouTube is a great invention.

    Homework Help and Free Study Guides - CliffsNotes has a lot on French/English/Spanish. It's not covered 100%, but it's a very good reference for French I/II.
