LeapFrog Leapster

The LeapFrog Leapster is a relatively inexpensive, interactive learning tool for preschool-aged kids. As you may already know, there are loads of fun games that teach a range of skills, such as math, language arts, reading and science. HOWEVER, there are also games available in French! Since the games are entirely in French, it is helpful if a parent already has a working knowledge of the language.

Rosetta Stone French

Rosetta Stone French Level 1 is one of the best-known, most successful language programs out there. It uses an immersion method based on visual representations, which helps the child (or adult) learn the language in the same way they learned their native tongue. Their speech-recognition technology corrects pronunciation and accent. Lisa has used this for Greek, and loved it!

Rosetta Stone Homeschool French Level 1

The only difference between the standard Rosetta Stone and Rosetta Stone Homeschool French is that the Homeschool version comes with Parent Administrative Tools, which allow the homeschooling (or any) parent to develop lesson plans, manage the student’s progress and track success. The two version seem to be priced similarly, so it’s really a matter of preference.
