I decided to order Abeka. I NEEDED a "prescribed plan" to teach it if I'm going to teach it (and I am). I did not want to reinvent the wheel.
I'd actually decided on Bob Jones since they actually have 3 levels, but when I went to order it, it was more expensive (over $100 more with the DVD -- not sure if Abeka has a something comparable or not), AND I was able to find the entire Abeka set on Ebay for 1/2 price So, that's the option I chose.
As of right now, I intend to divide the French I and II textbooks into 3 sections and have my dc complete Rosetta Stone 1-5 (over 3 years), and I'll then give credit for 3 levels. Knowing that NO ONE actually ever finishes the textbooks, I think that that sounds viable and plausible. I'm certain that some places do "more," but I also know for a fact that many places do less.
FYI, for those doing Spanish .... I actually looked at Lifepac. They have a CD program that comes with their workbooks. I thought it looked pretty decent, but they don't have it for French. Then I heard someone say they didn't like it, and in the same discussion someone else say they used it and loved it I showed it to an IRL friend, and she's decided to order that for her dc.
