Hi, I’m Stephen. It’s been a number of years since I learned French at High School but I reckon I could still get by if I dropped in to France for a week – I wouldn’t be perfect, but OK. I think my brain would still be able to remember enough phrases, nouns and verbs to get along.

Learning a new language that is not taught during school hours is a different matter. You need a reason (rather than just filling up school time) and commitment to succeed.

Which one to choose? That’s a personal choice, but it could be for fun, education, your career prospects, or perhaps your are going on holidays or moving overseas?

It must be easy to access the lessons, and though I took Thai lessons from a coach some years ago, I could not afford to take him on holidays with me, but my trusty mp3 player came along with me so I could do a last-minute refresher before I landed. Too cool!

I’ve been looking to learn a new language and my research lead me to the Rocket Languages company whose languages are diverse, and their offering ticks many boxes for me when I was choosing a program.

I hope you enjoy this site and join me in discovering all the benefits of learning to speak a foreign language!
