Learning a Foreign Language

I seem to remember a thread about this from many moons ago, but I'll be damned if I can find it.

Anyone have a recommendation on software for learning a foreign language? I've heard good things about Rosetta Stone, but thought I'd request some feedback before I drop the coin on it.

Thanks in advance.

You can do a free trial of Rosetta Stone, through their website. It gets a lot of high acclaim. Also a lot of money though.

Thanks, I checked it out. There's actually quite a bit of content in the demo. Definately worth checking out.

Funny that this thread came up tonight. I have been learning Japanese for awhile since I work with many Japanese people and because my company is a US subsidiary of Hitachi. I tried the Rosetta Stone demo and was impressed and earlier today I bought their Japanes version and should have it early next week. I am looking forward to it. Good luck to you

Nah, actually they don't do that as they want to learn English better. Hell, half the time I gotta emplore them to speak Japanese for my benefit. But, when I leave... who knows - hell I talk bad about myself behind my own back, why not them.

How's that going for you? I always thought that would be extremely difficult to learn.

I seem to have the knack for proper announciation so speaking is not bad for me. The listening and understanding is another thing. That is why I am continuing to try and learn. The local CC has Japanese classes but the first is in the fall and I have had to cancel it three times in a row due to business..... Writing and reading Kanji is the big whopper hurdle and God knows if I will even learn 50 Kanji's before I die.
