Hi everyone, I was always planning on attempting to learn Spanish sooner or later, and it's looking like it's time to start.

Anyone actually done this without any background from school? I took 6 years of German throughout high school and college and actually got nearly fluent in it (which I have since lost most of it...use it or lose it) so I have a decent knack for language.

I always hear how good the rosetta stone system is, and it should be for what they charge, but I'd prefer to hear other's advice before forking over that kind of cash. Thanks.

Go to worldstart dot com. I just bought a 31 language learning system that looked pretty neat to work with. They buy bulk and sell cheap...and free shipping in the US. Just an idea...

Rance thanks for the link. I looked @ Rosettastone and figured my learning spanish would have to wait. I live in a predominantly hispanic neighborhood and would like to be able to converse with my neighbors. Plus out here if you are bilingual the chances of getting a job improves. You helped me out big time. THANK YOU

Glad I could help! I just ordered that program in hopes of learning some Swedish! And the little lady is very fond of languages...so I hope she can use it as well.
