Jodie wanted to brush up on her German as she hasn't done German language classes in at least 8 years or more since she was last in Berlin so i bought her a copy of the Rosetta Stone German Level 1, 2 & 3 that she has been using for the last month or so and loves it.
Considering I haven't studied languages since failing 8th grade French i was wary about having a go myself.
All i can say is wow.
After playing with it for just a few hours or so I've been totally hooked. The way they use audio and pictures is fantastic. I cant believe how easy it is.
If you are thinking of trying to learn a language definitely check out Rosetta Stone. It's pricey but way worth it in comparison to studying languages in a formal class.
