Learning French is an ongoing and involved process. You can't learn how to speak French overnight, and you probably can't learn on your own, no matter how many books and CDs you buy. What you can do is use this free website to supplement your learning: to get another explanation of something you didn't understand, to get extra practice between classes, and to brush up on what you once learned but have now all but forgotten.
