I wanted to know if any of you have used either one of these Learning to Read Programs:

Lire avec Leo et Lea (link: http://www.amazon.fr...58949413&sr=1-1 )


Méthode Boscher (Link: http://www.amazon.fr.../ref=pd_sim_b_5 )

What do you think? What did you like? dislike?

Or maybe you used a different method?

Hello, we just bought several books from the Methode Boscher series, and they look very good, though we haven't started using them yet. I have not seen the other series in person.

We used the Methode Boscher for learning to read French along with many other books, tapes and CD-Roms..but not the other, not because of any dislike, only because of lack of exposure.

What I liked about MB is that it is phonetically based.

We used both, and the kids much preferred Leo & Lea.

Boscher is REALLY old fashioned and my kids (native speakers) had problems with some of the vocalulary...

Also, the layout is just better in L&L imho, pages less crowded, etc.

Now, if you want to try out something else, check "Les Alphas".
It is a method, rather than a book only...and my kids learned to read easy words in a day, literally. I still used it with my dds, even though they learned to read in English first.
The method is just amazing!
