Anybody out there using “Rosetta Stone” for self-directed foreign language learning? How does it work? How did it work for you?

I am thinking of using it to brush up on and expand my Spanish in 2011. It is on sale right now (10/18/2010).

  1. I dont know about the rosetta stone method, but I had a post college roommate who taught himself conversational spanish by only watching the spanish channel for a few months straight. He learned enough to talk to the dishwashers who worked at the restaurant with him.

    • That is sort of how my grandfather learned English. He skipped English classes and sat in the movies all day long watching the same emoviews over and over.

  2. I tried it for Chinese. I learned some vocab, but it is not too good for conversational language learning. I would recommend SpanishPod as a way to learn language for conversation
