I speak English (obviously) and Spanish.

Some may say I also speak a lot of BS. :yllol:

Still, assuming the OP is sincere, I have heard that Rosetta Stone is a very good set of programs.

Of course, 99% of the people who are reading this site are probably taking a second language as part of their HS curriculum, so the Rosetta Stone (and other programs like it) would best serve as supplements (or primaries for their parents! :wink: )

Speaking more than one language is an ability that cannot be overvalued. It is simply the best thing you can do.

I speak English, Japanese, and marginal French. Parisians are mean, makes learning French easier IMO. :)

I took German in high school. It came in handy after I met my husband and we were stationed in Germany. I would go into a store in town, ask for something in German and 9 times out of 10 they would answer me in English! I was kind of embarrassed that my "accent" was so bad they would automatically switch to English. I found the older generation much more willing to converse with me in German, I guess they appreciated my effort even if my grammar wasn't the best.

I haven't used my German in so long that I don't remember very much. "Use it or lose it" is so true.

Jamzmom, I love that spam smiley!
