I really want/need to learn Spanish - October 7, 2008, 02:22 PM

Since the language of American is now spanish, i really want/need to learn Spanish. And since im a restaurant manager, and my entire cook staff speaks spanish, i figured I should give it a shot. I hear Rosetta Stone is the best. HOWEVER, i see its like $250 just for the 1st of 3 lessons.. Well, like the rest of the Continental US, Im a cheap @$$. Can anyone help me out finding Rosetta Stone cheaper. Any hooks up or anything?

Quick Answer: Sign up with Arlington County Public Library Online. You do NOT have to live in Arlington to get an account. Use that account number to get online access to the Rosetta Stone Program for FREE. Punto. No necesita comprar nada. Que se joden!

FTW everyone: Rosetta Stone is Standard Latin Spanish. So what?? Latins, just like Americans, speak dialects of their language, with A LOT of unique words/phrases that you won't learn in Rosetta Stone. Not to say that Rosetta isn't a good place to start - just a warning that you shouldn't expect to understand what the cookstaff is saying, nor should you expect to understand a Colombian, when you learn from the Guatemalteco or Salvadoreno that you're likely to encounter in the DC area....But good luck!!

You could just ban them from speaking Spanish and make them speak English. You would after all be helping them. You could even have a little class everyday.

Good Luck. Imagine you were in a foreign country and quite able to speak the local language, however, you work with other Americans....what language are you gonna speak amongst youselves? Just a thought....

But it sounds like his problem is more that they don't understand English at all and he cannot tell them what they need to do effectively.

Also try to watch Spanish tv, it'll help because you can watch them talk. Your brain will start to figure things out.
