@fvsoccer:  I wasn’t part of that but I’ll comment to see if you get more responses.  Oh but I am currently using rosetta stone for Italian and it’s going pretty good.  Part of the course teaches you how to write and I’m very surprised that I can actually write full sentences in Italian LOL! They are simple sentences like “The girls play in the park” lol but still I’m impressed.  I have been learning the house hold items as well and I recently learned how to say I’m American and I live in New York city lol! I don’t live in NY though I live in the West Coast lol!

 

I like rossetta stone though because it teaches you how to pronounce the words like you have a microphone and you say it and it lets you try again and again until you have the pronounciation right ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I use to use the pinslers course but for Tagalog, bleh didn’t really like that one.  I recommend rossetta stone 100% though ๐Ÿ™‚

@fvsoccer:  Hi ! I wasn’t around on your other post, but I’m glad to see you are still so committed! I’ve just joined, I think I’m JoRich. Initially I’m doign French. I’ve lived in France for two years now, and my husband and I speak exclusively French (his mother tongue) but we are trying to speak more English for his sake. 
Anyway, I figured I’d do the advanced shortcut test, to unlock the higher levels…and I’m frustrated to say that I tried to beat it a first time and lost my three hearts…and I’m now on my second time and have made three more mistakes, argh! I really have problems with spelling apparently, so while it’s a blow to my confidence I think it’s a good tool….I’ll keep trying to beat it!!! I’m interested in keeping in touch to share our experiences.

I’m on Lesson 4, of Basics 2 in French. I’ve decided to start at the beginning.

I use Duolingo to refresh my Spanish (learned in school) and I’m using Memrise to learn Korean Laughing

I just got Rosetta Stone in Japanese. (I may or may not have pirated it, sshh.) I took some in college but I want to review and learn more, since while FH and I are in Korea right now, we’re planning a longer-term move to Japan fairly soon (we’ve lived there before) and possibly a move to Hawaii in the distant future when we want to return to the US, where higher level Japanese could help us get good jobs.

I have survival Korean as is, and my listening is decent, so we’ve both decided to focus on where we’ll probably be for a longer time. 

Hoping to take the JLPT this winter, either level 5 or 4 depending on what I think I can pass. 

๐Ÿ˜€ Studied for a couple hours today, actually!

@fvsoccer:  I had the same problem.  But I just use the receiver microphone from my Fiance surround sound system lol! Super ghetto cus it’s not really a microphone but it gets the job done LOL!
