What is the best way to learn Spanish? Should I purchase Rosetta Stone or is there something...
free online to do? Is there a website were I can chat live with a Spanish speaker or do something interact such as that. I think it's important to communicate with other people as part of the learning process, but I'm not sure something like Rosetta Stone would be able to pull that off. If you have any ideas please let me know.
Actually, Rosetta Stone does offer that, though I have not advanced far enough with it to activate that part, so can't comment on how well it is implemented.
Although I've never used it, I hear that Rosetta Stone is very effective. Immerse yourself in the language by watching television, listening to the radio, etc.
Livemocha.com is the BEST ever! Check out that website. It's all free if you correct other peoples work for them - it just takes a second. I used it to learn Portuguese and its very good!
The very best way to learn spanish as I guess is moving to country where spanish is the major language.
Here is a hub that gives 7 tips for learning a language:

Livemocha is a decent site for elementary language learning. Of course, interacting or working with people who speak the language is the best option. They can correct your pronunciation and help you with pesky issues like tenses.
Rosetta Stone has a lot of negative feedback. That is because it is based on an immersive teaching method, which means you learn like a baby learns its first language: no explanations, no translations; just jump in and figure it out (in a structured way, of course).
Some like it, some don't. Fluenz, or Rocket Languages or Tell Me More, for example, have different language learning philosophies. Fluenz believes in the old method of having a personal tutor, for example, and making sure things are well explained in terms of English, etc.
You can look at some unbiased reviews here to make a good choice: http://ebestlanguagelearningsoftware.co … -software/
