If you're planning a trip to a French speaking region of the world and don't want to spend half your time flipping through a dictionary, you should know about a new language training program designed by French K.I.S.S. founder Robert Fontaine.

Bon Voyage French is the culmination of several months of intense work on the part of Fontaine who has been successfully teaching people how to speak French for more than 30 years.

The program will enable users to learn everything they need to know to be able to order meals in restaurants, ask for directions, reserve accommodation and make travel arrangements, as well as other tasks that are typically required when traveling to a country or region where French is the predominant language.

As with all the other French K.I.S.S. programs and materials (K.I.S.S. stands for keep-it-simple-s'il-vous-plaît), Bon Voyage French uses accelerated learning techniques to speed up the learning process.

“This program will get people speaking French quickly so they don’t have to struggle with dictionaries and electronic translators when they get to their destination. They can hit the ground running, confident in their ability to communicate with the locals," says Fontaine.

The self-study aspect of the program makes it possible for people to work at their own pace, from the comfort of their home or office. Even spending just a few minutes a day practicing with the materials can yield amazing results. The program even includes lessons in MP3 format so that people can listen to them on their iPod, their car CD player or their home theatre system.

Learning French with Bon Voyage French will prepare the traveler for great adventures when they can fully experience the language and the culture of their destination.
