Learning Spanish

    Has anyone used Rosetta Stone for learning a language? Now that I'm living in SW Florida I deal with a lot of Spanish speaking people and would love to learn the basics. My problem is that there are so many different levels with Rosetta Stone, starting about $100.00 to over $300.00.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have the Rosetta Stone in Italian. I bought it off groupon last year at a great price, which I now don't remember What I paid. Only problem is I use my i pad and my daughter uses "our" laptop for school. The RS version I purchased only works with a regular computer, so I haven't used it as planned. I'm not sure if newer version are i pad adaptable.

    Who knew it would be so hard to negotiate sharing "our" laptop with a teenager? (She's in a really tough school with lots of homework, not just goofing around on it).

    Oh, and check with the library. Our local one didn't have it last year when I asked, but they did say they were looking into ordering some of the languages.

    Duolingo offers free online courses in Spanish and several other languages. My daughter used it to become conversationally fluent in Spanish and she recommends it.
