Rosetta Stone software to learn another language?

I just wonder how well it works being it seems pretty expensive.

:bax:

Never used them, I used podcasts to teach myself languages and they work pretty well though

Ohhh it's the first time that I hear about such way to learn another languages
I think that the better way to learn some language is to have a real practice in conversation with people on that language and no other programm can help you to learn language really well

mailman Oohh my it really costs too much but I don't think that it will help you to study Spanish so fast and well
The better way is to hire a homeworker for home - some hot chicka Latina ;) She will teach you Spanish uuuhh very well :D

I have the Russian course and I did learn a little but I only went through a few of the lesson plans. I found them mind numingly boring but I still know some Russian because of them and maybe one day, I'll go through the entire course.

I enjoyed this one better http://www.pimsleurapproach.com/ but the one I have is not as indepth

I've been intrigued by them, too. My bf's parents have a condo in Mexico and they've been wanting to learn Spanish, so I was thinking about getting them that before their next trip down.

I just got (a few days ago) the Thai version, and the Spanish version, but haven't installed them yet. I'll try to get them in here in the next few days and let you know how it is. It's supposed to be really good, they say the CIA uses it to train their people. It teaches using audio and visual, so your supposed to pick it up faster...so they say.

it has a very unique way of teaching you a language thats for sure, its kinda confusing at first until you grasp the concept of how they are trying to teach you it.

OOhhh of course, I you want them to learn languages more deeply and wide - you need it! But they are so little at the moment, so it will be hard for them to learn it
What kind of languages do you want them to learn?
