What do you think is the best way to start learning a new language?
Are there any resources you think are useful?
I've heard Rosetta Stone is suppose to work I've never personally tried it though just because of the cost of the programs. I took French classes for 5 years in high school and I've basically forgotten everything. I could read it if I needed to but as far as speaking and hearing someone talk, forget it. Make sure if you're trying to learn a language that you're surrounded by it on a daily basis otherwise it's pointless to learn.
The best way to learn a language is to befriend a person speaking that language and keep talking to him or her as often as you can. At the same time watching movies in that language will add as a complementary way of doing it.
This is he way infants learn to speak their mother tongue.
Start with subject-verb-object. Note the word order of that particular language and focus on it. Move on to conjunctions and note the proper way to use them. Learn prepositions next. Learn at least one idiom each day. Do not ever analyze an idiom.
That's about the basics. There's more but you will "get the hang of it" as you progress if you've got a good start." Good luck!
Rosetta Stone. However, these methods normally cost a lot of money. If you want to learn online for free, try busuu.com.
I think the best way is to try and learn some basic vocabulary and grammar at home first, or maybe you could take a class at your local college. After you've grasped the basics, however, I honestly believe the only way to truly learn a language is to spend a significant amount of time in a country where that language is spoken, at least a few months or so. I learnt German at school for seven years before I moved here, but I still struggled to have a conversation with anyone or to understand what they were saying for the first month or two. This is the difference between 'school German' (or whatever language you were planning on learning) and the way native speakers actually speak. In school the way people, even the language teachers, speak is very controlled and is meant to be easily understood, but native speakers just speak however they like, normally with a dialect and using slang as well, which can make it even more difficult.

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...
