I wanna learn a couple of languages for fun. In order, I'd like to learn: French, Russian, Arabic, Spanish, and then brush up my Chinese (and maybe learn some non mandarin dialects). Can anyone recommend some software? I was thinking Rosetta stone but...

Yeah.

Thanks.

I think you need a combination of best book, best software, flash cards, video tutorials etc..
I got a game for the DS that teaches you Japanese. it's ok if you want to learn on the move and has a built in dictionary.

Just get as many sources as possible.
Been in Japan since August, no fucking money left!

Rosetta Stone is fine.

The new Rosetta Stone 3 is great, albeit on the pricey side.

Pertaining to the images criticism: So what? Every language I've seen on RS3 uses the same images every time. In an Italian lesson, you'll see American people, Japanese people, you name it.

Some people just need to chill these days

Speaking of languages, is there a French thread on UG (like the Spanish and German ones?)

There has been one, but it's been hijacked by us Quebeckers.
