Study Aides

  • Flash cards are one of my favs. I love playing with Genius (software for Mac — maybe PC, will have to check). Find prepared Genius language decks and get the free Genius Software from MacUpdate
  • Find tons of free already prepared flash cards at Flashcard Exchange, just $19.95 for unlimited access. Imagine how many hours it’d take to create your own flash cards, and here for a measly 20 bucks you can get them all! Tons of languages too, not just French.
  • Le Conjugueur (Mac shareware) verb conjugation software
  • Verb2Verb also an iPhone version.

Games & Quizzes

  • Join Quizlet and have fun with all the various quizzes even create your own!

Translation Sites

  • Easy to get to because the url is so easy to remember, Translate.Google.com. It will remember (using Cookies I assume) your settings so next time it’s all ready to go. Translate to French from English or from French to English.
