Has anyone ever worked with the Rosetta Stone language stuff? If so do you know if it works, is it worth a damn?
There is no punishment. There is no reward. There are only consequences.
I have often wondered the same thing, so I'd be curious to see if anyone has first hand knowledge about the program :smile:

my dad used it in his german class (well he'd make my mom do it cuz she's german) but based on what they said, it's pretty usefull
I got it to learn Swedish but have not got around to using it yet. I really should.

I get it free from the DoD, its okay... but it will never replace classes, at least for me. I personally use it to supplement them, and its quite useful for studying and improving oral communication, with native speakers and pronunciation guides.
However, in my experience, its difficult to learn languages with a different alphabet with this software, as it doesn't really teach you the writing.
Ive used it and it can be confusing cause the way they teach you stuff like instead of telling you what stuff means in English they just show you pictures and you learn that way, I guess it's meant to be like how you learned your first language as a child you match words with objects...but I really think it's one of the best ways to learn a language.
