I was curious if any of you have used the Pimsleur or Rosetta Stone courses to learn another language. I have had great success with the Pimsleur Romanian tapes (though it was limited to only 5 tapes). I tried the Pimsleur Russian, but it was WAY to difficult for me.
I was thinking about trying Rosetta Stone, but didn't want to spend a lot of money for something that wasn't beneficial.
With that said, I'd like to know if any of you are familiar with the two and what do you think about their methods of learning? Which is more effective?
