I've been thinking about getting the Rosetta Stone program for a couple of years now but I want to hear some first hand accounts about it first. Anyone here ever use it?
I have the Japanese Rosetta Stone and it wasn't really very helpful at all. I think that it's approach would be more effective for learning romance languages like Spanish and Italian, which share grammatical lineage with English and use the same alphabet, than a language evolving from a different tradition. Perhaps. Although I think that learning a language is going to be a supremely difficult challenge no matter what, and so I'm skeptical of products offering shortcuts. Everyone I know who is really good at another language got there through blood sweat and tears.
