I first started re-learning French 6 years ago when I met my French partner. I say re-learning because I loved French at school and also had a job for a while where I rang French customers to help them with their orders. So when I needed a regular training regime where I could do a bit regularly (So that it wasn't too forced) but at the same time have fun and learn bit by bit, Frantastique was the answer. Believe me, I tried lots of different methods but this is what I prefer. So I get up in the morning and do my lessons in my dressing gown before work. That's how I like it. Then I can be in the shower and what I've just learned goes through my head and (hopefully) sticks! My French partner and I don't really converse in French unless we are back in France with his family, but this is where I can chat with them and be comfortable amongst them, feeling like part of the family. This is why I learn, apart from enjoying it too. Sometimes my partner asks me :What is the French word for that? Ha ha, sounds weird but he's been living here so long that sometimes he forgets. Anyway vive la Frantastique!— Jayne M. (Alfreton, UNITED KINGDOM)
