What would you guys say is the best way to learn French, especially Quebecois French? (is it even that different?) I know nothing comes easy, I just want it to be proficient. I got a B+ in my French 101 class, but I feel like I don't know much more than I did heading into it except for maybe picking up a few words per sentence when reading.

I'd prefer not to spend almost $1000 on software, but if that Rosetta Stone type stuff is good then I guess I'll go for that.
Books and audio tapes, then practice with someone. You could find someone online to practice with. You can also find some sites with different lessons (I had found a couple for a friend, I'll try to find them for you).

Edit: Couldn't find the one I had but these look good: http://www.francaisfacile.com/index.php along with a message board.
And one with video in France: http://www.laits.utexas.edu/fi/home


I had a gf who would speak to me in one language and I would respond in another. When people would look at us amused, I'd say: "We're bilingual".

Of course, it doesn't give you the pronunciation.
