I'm hoping to learn French, or at least the very basics, in my spare time and I'm looking for some advice. The only thing is that I've never studied french, I did German years ago in school. I'm thinking about learning this on my own, through books, interactive CD's and internet resources. I had thought about joining an evening class group but the job I'm in is very variable and usually runs on unsociable hours. I'm just thinking I might be taking on too much...learning a language on my own.
Would I be better off doing some distance learning course?
