    • Considering it takes way longer than 3 months to learn a language, why would you lock yourself into this? Just use DuoLingo which is free forever

    • Thanks OP.

      Is it one language per email address, or can you switch between languages after you have registered?

      Rosetta stone is s**t though. Not a good method for language learning if you really want to learn.

      Good way to start is Michel Thomas or Pimsleur, then Assimil, making flashcards with Anki throughout, then get on Italki and do 1v1 Skype lessons. Continue to make flashcards and supplement with a grammar textbook.

      DuoLingo changed its business model now so you only get 5 tries/errors a day until the app locks and forces you to pay for the monthly subscription

      I saw only a 3 day trial if not student . How do they verify you are a student to begin with?

      Paul Noble is also good.

      French, Russian and Serbian.

      The key is moving to speaking practice as soon as possible. Rosetta Stone will teach you how to say 'The dog is running' or 'The restaurant is next to the hotel' but if you actually want to learn a language, then you have to do it in a more methodical and effective fashion. If you want to learn how to speak a language, then you have to get as much as practice speaking as possible.

      Depends on many factors including nationality and certifications. A certified German teacher in Germany (US $20-25) will for example cost much more than an uncertified Russian teacher living in Siberia ($6-8USD/hr). I haven't done Spanish but I assume you could find a cheap teacher from Central or Latin America.

      Yea it can be expensive, but surprising the s**t out of my Wife and her Serbian family by being able to speak with them in Serbia (and not needing her to interpret at all) when we first went over was priceless. Took me about 8 months to get there (from not even knowing the alphabet to there).

      Check out Italki, the prices are all on there and depend entirely on the tutor https://www.italki.com/teachers/french
      If you are just looking for a native speaker to chat with, it's actually quite cheap. A instructor with a formal plan is expensive.

      Edit: food for thought, as the lockdown in Romance countries continues, this is probably the best time to get a cheap tutor! They get paid to stay at home and talk to you, it's a win-win.

      No payment info is required so you can't be automatically billed at the end of the three months, so it doesn't matter.

      100% agree with everything xxxronjames says here. It's a free trial for 3 months, so it doesn't hurt to try Rosetta Stone but there are way better methods out there. Keep in mind there are no SINGLE methods that will get you fluent by yourself at home. I learned Spanish from scratch to an intermediate level and tried many different methods and apps.

      Michel Thomas is great way to start so you can start thinking and constructing sentences in the language that you are learning. You learn the grammar rules and conjugations of words in a short period of time and you should be able to create your own complex sentences afterwards. If you're learning Spanish there's a better and more modern version which uses a similar teaching style called LANGUAGE TRANSFER (FREE!). They also have Italian, Greek, German, Turkish, Arabic, and Swahili as well but I can only tell you how great the Spanish course is.

      Pimsleur gets you actually speaking the language out loud and really helps with pronunciation. You listen to a ~30min audio file per day and repeat out loud whenever prompted to as you follow along. I did find it pretty boring after a while though as it's pretty slow but it does help.

      The methods above don't really help you with a few things such as reading/writing or more importantly vocabulary since they are audio-based. You can't create many sentences if you understand the structure/grammar but don't have the vocab to fill in the blanks. I mainly used ANKI flashcard program to learn my vocab, using pre-made flashcard decks (ex. Essential Spanish Vocabulary Top 5000 and Spanish 1000 words) but you can make your own flashcards which helps you remember better but takes a lot of time.

      You can use Duolingo for vocab and learning as well but I'm not a fan of the app. You learn too many things you wouldn't use in day to day life...I don't care that 'Juan eats Apples'. I personally prefer Memrise over Duolingo as a language app.

      For listening practice, I just watched a lot of Youtube Vloggers in Spanish or Spanish Movies/TV Shows with subtitles first and then eventually without. Listened to tons of Spanish Podcasts while commuting.

      And lastly, using Italki for live video lessons to actually work on everything you learned and improve your actual conversation skills (talking/listening). Prices range but can be very cheap depending on what language you're learning. Since our dollar is strong against the currencies of South America, you can practice Spanish 1on1 with a tutor for as low as $4-5USD/hr. Professional teachers can be a lot more but the tutors that I chose were around the $10 and below per hour. Don't use them to learn the basics or vocabulary at the beginning, you can learn that by yourself instead of wasting money to learn the word for house or dog or whatever.

      Learning a new language is NOT easy and requires a lot of work but it can be fun while exercising your brain. It can open you up to a whole new culture, job opportunities, media (music/tv/movies/books/youtube), social life and so forth in the new language.

      I enjoy surprising native Spanish speakers and catching them off guard when they see this Asian-Canadian speaking their language for the first time. I've dated women and made friends with people that I otherwise would have never connected with (a few of them can barely speak English). So good luck to you all that want to learn a new language and continue that journey to fluency.

      Sorry, quarantine has me writing this wall of text...
