    Does Rosetta Stone work?

    I want to learn Spanish with Rosetta Stone and I was wondering if it actually works? Any one that knows anything about it? I did some research on the web and I think its pretty good, by the sound of it. Any thoughts?

    I learned my languages from a combination of immersion and intense study. Rosetta Stone provides both. Just listening and doing the exercises does not work on its own; you have to review, practice, and do the homework. Even then, it is best to have someone to practice with. Good luck!

      Hi Sherry! Thanks so much for answering, I really appreciate your answer (selected it as Best Answer!). Yes, I will buy some grammar books also and learn along with Rosetta Stone and practise a lot! I have a Spanish friend so I will practise with her

    Yes. I adore Rosetta Stone. And the program just keeps getting better. My family purchased the homeschool version without the downloadable apps and interactive website. One of the best parts includes the CDs to listen to when in the car. They really help.

      Hi lburmaster! Thanks so much for answering, your answer has persuaded me to buy Rosetta Stone. If both you and Sherry found it useful then I will try it. I am really looking forward to learning Spanish! Thanks again!

    I would save money and buy a package of blank cassettes to record from a Spanish book (such as for Dummies) and listen to them when I am doing other things (i.e. - sleeping, eating, writing/reading) but not driving.

      Thanks for answering, Examiner-1. Yes, I have purchased some Paul Noble CD's and I find them fairly effective. However, I am more of a visual learner and I like to see the images before me whilst I am learning.
