Have you tried Rosetta Stone?

I'm reading the reviews on Amazon and lot of people are giving it bad reviews. Is there a better way to learn a new language? I don't really want to take a class at the community college or take private classes. The price of the Rosetta Stone software is quite high so I want to know if it actually works before I make a purchase. Any input is helpful so thanks in advance.

Hi BlueGoblin, without a doubt the RossettaStone were the best language aid I tried as you hear everything in the language you want to learn and make you start to think quickly in that language. They are absolutely packed with lessons at various levels and are the best way to perfect proounciation. I used them as an aid for Greek, and all you need alongside them is a dictionary to note down new voaculary.

Actually I have found a website that is similar to Rosetta Stone. It is free if you do the basic stuff and then it costs if you go advanced stuff. The name of the site is www.livemocha.com. It has lots of different languages that you can learn too. Hope this has helped you.
