Traveling abroad can be an exciting opportunity. Is it finally time to try the freshest most enticing pizza you ever had? Looks like you should head to Italy! Want to devour the tastiest pastries, and smell the most unique perfumes, time to head all the way to France. Don't forget to celebrate beer and all of it's dark glory in Germany, or discover the beautiful Celtic lands and music to your ears over in Ireland.
Wait you say? Something is missing, and it isn't just the credit card limit to pay for these international trips. A little thing called communication is key. Money can't buy everything. Not only is the travel exciting but for most it may be pretty stressful. A lot of us haven't mastered any language enough to feel comfortable with more than just asking to use the bathroom in another country. (And when you find the international bathrooms to be the smallest space where you will be stuck straddling the toilet that is a whole other topic!)
We all know love is a universal language, but sometimes love just ain't enough. If you only had a few weeks of Spanish before you decided you couldn't roll your tongue, or dropped German before the first month you might not be equipped for the trip. Some of us have dabbled with books on tape (slash CD in this century), or just books in general, or tried to pick it up from listening to natives, but learning German from your grandmother, won't make allow you to speak fluently, and you will not be able to perfect any sort of pronunciation. We need to feel secure in what we are talking about, and how we are saying it, because we don't want to slip up and say something taboo when we are lost or in a bad area of another country with no one to help us.
So what is the best way to go about learning a new language in this day and age? How can you be the most successful in the shortest amount of time. College courses are going to be expensive, and they cannot keep up with your individual pace. So now we need something quick and affordable, that is guaranteed to work. Where are you going to find all of this in one language learning program? Let me save you the time and energy it takes to research this question. It is time to treat yourself into finding out how to use the Rosetta Stone Course. (Right now there is a huge savings on the program as well)
