Jackie in NE replied to Jackie in NE's topic in High School and Self-Education BoardThank you, Yvonne. I, too, am competent in French, with a less-than-perfect accent. ;) Dd used BJU last year with Veritas, but I don't want to continue with them for reasons other than the actual method or content. I think that your comment about "getting the job done" is actually the crux of the matter. I should probably quit searching, just buy the darn thing, and get it done. Thank you for responding. Jackie
Jackie in NE posted a topic in High School and Self-Education BoardLooking for a grammar-based French course for High School. From the little bit that I can see, Discovering French Today looks good, but I want to be sure before I buy. Has anyone here used it? Or, alternatively, if you've had success with another high school, grammar-based program..... please share. Thanks, Jackie
I know how you feel! I do read the general board but have taken to NOT reading much that's being posted these days and MOST days, never mind getting into the fray. I think you are right - we (they) do need to take it easy but it will not happen unless most people IGNORE those heated posts. It seems many people like the "heat." I don't so I stay out of it. I prefer the curriculum boards!
