Korean Rosetta Stone
(Richmond, Virginia, USA)
I have a lot of korean friends, so i thought why not learn korean through rosetta stone. I have the BASIC foundation of korean, i can pretty much just read and write in korean. At first it was hard to put things together, being everything was in korean and nothing english. But after ahile, i could piece together what things meant, and the grammar. Learning korean through rosetta stone was really effective for me, i guess it just depends on the person. on the downside, i think people who struggle with rosetta stone in general dont practice it much outside the program, they expect to learn the language at an instant. to learn a new language, you have to actually sit down and try to understand why the "high lighted" verb theyre trying teach you relates to the picture. Rosetta stone gives u the foundation of the language, and its up to you if you want to succeed in it. dont expect to learn the language just by doing the simple exercises, or by guessing, it actually takes time to fully understand what theyre trying to teach you.
Rosetta stone worked for me, but i dont believe its worth 399$...
