BBC Active Quickstart French Language Course Review

bbc-active-quickstart-frenchAn independent language advantage course review by Becky Delalandre – Worcester, UK

I have some knowledge of the French language from school and I also did a recreational GCSE French course around 8 years ago.  I wanted to brush up on my skills and to gain confidence to speak more French while in France. I tried the BBC Active Quickstart French language course and think that it is good value for money at £13.99. As a beginner, I found the course easy to follow. Each section used reflective learning methods where a conversation took place in French, after an introduction in English. This conversation was then broken down into multiple sections and there was time for you to repeat each sentence and to answer the questions relating to the phrases.

Michel Thomas Method: Polish Introductory Course Review!

An independent language advantage course review by Imelda Michalczyk –Surbiton,  UK 

michel thomas method polish introductory courseI’ve wanted to study Polish for years and much of my hesitation stemmed from not enjoying my experience of learning other languages at school. Despite passing my French exams, I always felt like lessons were such a struggle and that I never fully understood what was going on. I’ve even bought a ‘teach yourself’ style programme for Polish in the past, with a CD and book, but just felt daunted and never quite made a start. So, I was very intrigued by the Michel Thomas Method, which claims to teach a new language “the way you learnt your own”.
