Has anyone else tried Rosetta Stone? I bought the Spanish packet years ago – possibly 8 years ago. I admit that I have been working on my Spanish for that long and have only slowly been improving. Regardless, I have this program that I started and just want to finish. However, they are focused on repetition so you look at the same pictures and the same phrases for several lessons. I think this does help with vocabulary but also becomes boring very fast.
My online subscription is done in May so I need to finish it in the next few months. Over the years, I have made it to lesson 10 of 20 so my fingers are crossed that I can get through the next 10 in 3 months. It’s a goal though.
An application that I really like is DuoLingo. Progress is so much faster. The bad side of it is the simplicity of the levels. It feels more like flashcards.
Mango Languages is offered by my library for free but I have not had a chance to really use it. I shall add it to the list of things to do in the future.
So many tools, so little time… especially if you like to check through the boxes one by one.
