This games-based learning system is good fun to play and you can indeed learn some elements of French relatively quickly, BUT.... they have not included the gender of any of the French nouns. Without knowing the gender of nouns, it is not possible to construct a grammatically correct sentence in French.
My wife, who speaks fluent French, says the only way to use the software is to look up each French noun in the dictionary as you learn it and separately learn the gender.
I've learnt alot with this game which is a great plus..
But alot of things could have been done better..
1. More MiniGames.
2. Random Words like "fanny" appear instead of really useful ones
3. Maybe tested us on how we say a word instead of comparing it?
But still..if you wanna learn french.. this is great!
Excellent game, the most fun way to learn French I have ever come across. The ability to go back and replay games/ exercises is a great way to brush up, if like me you find it too much info to memorise in one go! Best enjoyed with a pair of headphones, too. This is a hard title to find in the shops, well done to Play.com for having it in stock!
