    My dad used Rosetta Stone when he started learning Spanish. At first he really seemed to take to it, but ultimately it didn't take long for it to fall by the wayside. He is still at an advanced beginner (intermediate by English standards, perhaps) stage at the moment, but is getting on much better than when he used Rosetta Stone.

    That is not to say that it does not work, just that it 'working' is a difficult thing to measure objectively. There is no secret method to learning a language. Simply put, you have to put in the effort and have to draw on a range of experiences. What works for some will not necessarily work for others. My recommendation would be to try a Rosetta Stone trial, which I believe is still available, and see if you like it. But don't think that it is some magical solution to learning a language, because it isn't. Learning a language is difficult, and the effort you put in will always be more important than the language learning tool that you use.

    It helps of course if you have mastered English first.
