French Resources

Here's the list of online resources I've compiled as I've started my adventure of learning French. Incidentally, the only money I spent was on a real book called Le Petit Chose from a used bookstore. You don't have to spend a dime to learn most languages when there's the Internet. Just saying.

Starred (*) resources indicate resources that you can use for other languages. You might have to change the search terms or something, but it could be a starting point.
