Hey guys,

 

I was just curious--has anyone had experience with Rosetta Stone software? I'm asking because, for my graduate degree, they highly recommend that we have "reading knowledge" of French and/or German. Now, I already know two Romance languages (Spanish and Italian) so I can figure out French well enough, but I probably do actually need to learn German. Since I tend to get bored really easily in language classes (even in accelerated Italian...I just pick up languages really quickly. Ask my high school Spanish teacher), I was thinking this might be a better option than sitting through a two-semester sequence of the German reading course...and I could then put those credit hours towards something like dissertation credits, more music performance study, etc. Also, I was able to get the software free from a friend, so cost isn't an issue. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
