I'm thinking about asking for this for one of my Christmas presents… I would like to learn French. Does anyone have any experience with this program? Pros? Cons?

Try Duolingo first, it's free. In my opinion its more effective than Rosetta Stone.

Heard it is good. We refer our foreign exchange students to it if they are having trouble

yeah, that's been our experience here, too. 

my older boy did RS for a few years, and I feel like he's already making more progress with Duo in just the week we've been doing it. 

now I have both Thing One and Thing Two doing Spanish with Duo, and I'm doing Irish. 

What language(s) are you doing?

I tried using Rosetta Stone to learn French a few years ago. I didn't stick with it but I think that is more my personal problem than anything else. It was easy for me to pick up the vocabulary but I remember having the hardest time with the speech/pronunciation part of it.
