Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

learn french (read all 2 entries…)
best way to learn?!

I am currently bidding on a book and CD combo on eBay to self teach myself French, does anyone know any really great online resources though? Maybe we should list all the good ones we find for others to use to…

Personally, I cant wait till my french is so good I can go on to the french Cosmopolitan and Marie Clare websites and understand the articles :)

Im learning a little French here and will soon be taking a class at a local college…only because I need a foreign language credit. But LM is completely free and you can chat with French speaking people and that really helps. Its a beautiful language, but quite an undertaking. Best of luck to you!!

Brilliant!

Thanks for the website, i’m going to have a look at that right now!

nada100 is writing her list

but I think it is paid. are there other comprehesive website that teaches French for free?

JW 1096 its all just a matter of time........

I didnt pay

Hi! There are paid options on the site, but the basics can be learned for free. I have today also had an email offering me the paid for version free for 7 days and I’ve only been on the site a couple of days.

For me, this site is ideal, at the moment I can only commit to learning the basics and learn more complex French when I get a bit of spare time, I cant do classes every week for instance due to my job!

I think once you earn points on the website too you can get other paid for classes for free, you need to review other peoples work for points though, but I found that quite interesting anyway!

french.about.com

But it is a little confusing because each link takes u to an infinite number of other links..so be ware and don’t lose focus there!

Ill have a look through that site though, thanks!
