Hard to say as it would depend on two factors; 1) which language, 2) the learning style of the learner.
Hi K9keystrokes! Thank you for the question. In my opinion every source could be the best one - it is a question of individual preference and self motivation. However, I could recommend my favorite site for studying foreign languages - http://uz-translations.net/. You can find all the educational materials needed - e books, software, audio and video files. I am sure all the people passionate for learning languages would love it.
If you had the opportunity, immersion in the culture itself by living in the country of the language you want to learn, for 6 months to a year, would be the most ideal.
I realize this isn't always practical for most people but you asked for the "best".
try starting where you started with your current language. Children's books and early learning
Either immersing yourself in a culture or area where the langugage is spoken, or using a tool like Rosetta Stone.
My husband and I have used a variety of methods to self-teach. Pimsleur, podcasts, studying grammar books, and All Talk CD listening tapes. We are experience language learners and have found that learning on our own is actually more productive than a class if you are motivated to keep at it, and get to a point where it is part of your regular schedule (I do it while in car and while exercising mostly). We've studied Mandarin and Spanish this way. I also have studied German, French and Greek in the past. I do have some Hubs on learning Chinese for kids and adults.

What is the best software for learning Spanish not Rosetta Stone?My son is starting Spanish classes this year and I'd like to take a refresher course to help him have someone to practice with. I looked into Rosetta Stone and it is prohibitively expensive. Are there good programs out there...

English is not my native language. But I like this language because of it's popularity. English is an international language. So, it is very important for a person of other language to learn English properly.
