Two of the best websites to learn French online are BBC Languages and Learner.org. The French language programs on these sites are free and do not require registration.
BBC Languages provides a user's guide and begins its French language program with 10 introductory lessons. The lessons include video clips, transcripts and supplementary worksheets to facilitate the learning process. It provides quizzes and answer keys for users to test their progress.
The French language program on Learner.org consists of a series of video-based lessons. The first lesson, which is the orientation, is presented in French and English. The remaining 51 lessons are conducted completely in French.
