    Has anyone used this?  Our kids were taking a Spanish course taught by a lady in town and she has stopped teaching.  I’m looking for another route since I won’t have a live person speaking the language anymore…

    You’d be better off finding a tutor at a local college, community college, or church outreach . . . most areas in the US now have native Spanish speakers.  I don’t think you’ll end up with more than a smattering of vocab with Rosetta Stone.  We’ve tried it, and there wasn’t enough grammar or enough variety of learning to provide any conversational ability at all.  My kids never did learn, until I taught them, the difference between ser and estar . . . and it really cuts conversations short if the only thing your kid can say is “The boy is under the airplane.”  🙂

    Thanks!  That is good information to have.  I’ll start looking for a live person in earnest…

    We just started RS spanish. I would agree with Bookworm that a native speaker would be the best way to go. However, I have to say my kids are LOVING Rosetta Stone and are picking up words and phrases after a week. I haven’t been using it for long enough to say much more. 🙂
