French Courses

Descended from the Latin of the Roman Empire, along with languages such as Spanish, Italian, and Portugese, its development was influenced by the native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul (particularly in pronunciation), and by the Germanic language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. This is one of the reasons why certain French sounds and spellings are distinctly different from those of Spanish and Italian, for example, and why Spanish and Italian sound more similar to one another than French does to either one of them.

French has borrowed substantial amounts of vocabulary as well, historically from Ancient Greek in particular. Words beginning with the letter "K" in French, for example tend to be of Greek origin, as "K" was not originally a Latin letter and therefore did not originally exist in any of the early Romance languages.

An excellent way to learn a language is with the help of your Personal Computer. There are several French language courses available that vary considerably in price and effectiveness.

An important aspect is if the French course is available for the operating system you are using. Most people have Windows based systems, however there also many Mac users. Also keep in mind that older courses might not be compatible with Windows Vista or newer language course software may not work with older OS systems like Windows 95.

Below you will find a collection of "French language software". We hope it proves to be useful for your goal to learn French from your computer.
