Please help- Cool dog science project topic & good way to learn French?

I need a good topic for dog health. How to do dog CPR? Different bone fractures? ANYTHING!
Also, I need to find a way to learn french (Cheap and easy!)

I’ll try to answer both questions – very different!
For dog health, it would be interesting to talk about the health issues in very tiny dogs. My aunt had a teacup poodle which had all sorts of problems that bigger dogs don’t normally have. The poor thing had a terrible bone fracture just from sliding across a wood floor and hitting a dresser.

For French, you need to think about why you are learning it, when/where you will speak it, and your favorite way to learn. There’s usually a class at a local college available, but you’re tied to their time schedule. There are lots of different programs for learning online, through software, or audio. It depends also on your budget. The best programs combine audio, visual (pictures and video), written words, and speech practice. There are also some websites online where you can learn a little French for free, which is a good way to get a taste of the language, but it won’t get you that far.

A few good French language courses to look at are Tell Me More French, Fluenz French, Rocket French (but there’s no visual), and Instant Immersion French (cheapest, but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know how good it is). Rosetta Stone is probably the most well-know, but overpriced in my opinion. Just don’t buy any program unless it has some kind of money-back guarantee.

Bonne chance!
