I am looking for a more affordable alternative to Rosetta Stone. This site looks to be pretty cool since you essentially learn by having your work checked by native speakers. Of course, one downside is I am relying on people in other countries to be able to properly speak their own language.

Anyone used it or heard about it?

:D

Never heard of that.

I've got a very affordable alternative to paying for Rosetta Stone. Try a torrent, brah. The base software and all of the language packs are available on demonoid.

I'd thought about that. I'm about a three minute tutorial from my roommate away from being able to get the torrents. I always worry about getting .exe files off the internet, though. Probably my own ignorance but I am paranoid about viruses and spyware.

FWIW, I went ahead and logged on with this site and I like what I see. I did the first lesson in Spanish and have already gotten pretty good feedback. I've also been able to help out a few people that are figuring out English.

Registration is closed on that site...can anyone hook me up with an invitation? I'm possibly going to Italy, France, or Ireland next spring break. If I go with Italy or France, I'd like to learn the language.

I don't have any invitation codes right now. Did you check ISOHunt?

Got it off of thepiratebay. I might give Livemocha a try also if it gets any good endorsements here.
