i’m chinese and speak mandarin and cantonese (in a broken, born in the us kind of way). bf’s fam speaks spanish and i am very involved in the latino community through my job. it would be great for me to learn more both personally and professionally.  i’ve picked up a little but i really think i need to learn some of the grammar rules so i don’t sound like an idiot.

been thinking of doing an online spanish course through the local community college.  has any one had experience with taking classes online?

i’ve tried rocketspanish which is a free email program which i thought was good but found it hard to keep up without the needed accountability required in taking a class.

I’ve been trying on my own and failing, miderably, I need a class, and what luck!

I’m officially registered for back to back SPAN 201 & 202 (beginner spanish 1 & 2) at Concordia University starting next month!

For self study I’ve heard Rosetta Stone is the best, I think the military uses it, for the price, though, I’d rather take a class.

I’m struggling to learn Russian via the Rosetta Stone.  It’s a great tool and according to the Fiance I’m doing a great job.  But between school, work, planning a wedding, and trying to maintain a social life it’s impossible to find the time to do so.  I don’t have any pressure on when I learn.  His grandmother only speaks Russian but I have the feeling she’s pretty racist so I don’t think we are going to have any long convos together anytime soon regardless if I know her language.
