Has anyone tried Fluenz software to learn a new language?

Asked by rawpixels (2650 points ) September 16th, 2008

I’m currently using Rosetta Stone to learn French, but I’m not quite sure it’s very effective. It started off great, but suddenly became very difficult. Has anyone tried Fluenz? If so, what’s your opinion? http://www.fluenz.com/index.html

it has price to pay..why dont you learn a new language who has no charge?

I frequent Live Mocha, but I don’t think it is the right tool for learning a language. It’s not bad for learning particular words and phrases, though

There’s lots of free places on the net where you can go to practice your new language with real people without spending a penny.
