    I will definitely have my daughter give that a try. She had a bad experience with Spanish in school in 6th grade and just decided she wasn’t good at learning languages. This despite being bilingual until she was about 4!

    I knew more Spanish before I moved to Spain for three years. We lived in a small village in the mountains of rural Spain and they spoke a very guttural dialect. After three attempts at the butcher shop where I ordered two boneless penis breasts I gave up. They all knew English anyway. Now that I’m back, I think it’s time to try again.

      Oh My God, how funny. You made my day. BTW, Duolingo is great. I love it. Best way to learn another lingo that I have found. I actually WANT to do it. No “chore” about it.

    A friend told me about Duolingo the other day but her recommendation lacked the enthusiasm and mention of red jewels that you have won me over with! This is a very good thing because I move to Madrid for two years in August and so far I have done Rosetta Stone Lesson 1 like 3 times and I still couldn’t tell you one (uno) Spanish word from that lesson if my life depended on it.
    And my life kinda is going to depend on it very soon.
    Hooray for you and this new hope I have!

      I’m actually using Rosetta Stone and Duo Lingo at the same time. I like it because Duo Lingo gives me some vocab that Rosetta doesn’t and vice versa. Also, I can do Duo whenev’s and that is not true of Rosetta Stone. And I learn such helpful phrases like, “I am swimming” and “My child is larger than your child”. I use these CONSTANTLY…said no one ever.

    My experience is that Duolingo (DL) and Rosetta Stone (RS) compliment each other quite nicely.

    This is how it’s been working for me:
    DL – quickly increases my Spanish vocabulary and grammar rules
    RS – trains my brain to think in Spanish

    I plan on completed all levels of DL and RS. Afterwards, I’ll take a Spanish class at the local community college.

    This post is hilarious but the truth! Even though I wasn’t able to give up on Rosetta Stone because my laptop crashed (but I sure would have!); I find Duolingo much more practical. I finally understand why certain articles are used as opposed to others etc. It wasn’t just about memorizing the words but understanding why it is used and that is why I will use Duolingo over Rosetta Stone any day! I can’t wait for them to offer Mandarin!

    Thanks for turning me on to this! I need to punch up my French, and I’ve been wanting to start Spanish, so I’m on my way!
