Learning languages with RosettaStone?
Anyone here try it? How did it compare to an actual class, in fun, effectiveness, etc.
I’m really interested in their “immersion” approach, but I have doubts about whether their courses are enough to take me up to a high enough level for effective communication with native speakers and also whether teaching grammar, like conjugations, would work effectiely within the “immersion” context. It just seems too good to be true.
After all, I’ve taken Spanish V in high school, and while I can read well, can write decently (I think), I just fail at having any kind of conversation.
I’m interested in learning a few different languages, so I’m really hoping that Rosetta Stone works.
Money isn’t a factor at all, fun and effectiveness are the only major factors (that I can think of).
What do y’all think?
