As I recall, I was helped greatly when learning English (I am fluent now) by computer games available at the time, such as King's Quest or Leisure Suit Larry. They required me to read textual descriptions and type in answers and commands. Later, when Internet became available, I spent an ungodly amount of time in the MUDs, which were like textual MMORPGs of the '90s. This was even better, because it was real time communication with real people - all in text.
Is there anything like these games available now in French? I would just google it, except my French googling skills are not what they are in English and I can't find anything comparable. I am currently at A2 level or so.
