to Your Spanish Language
This site is all about helping you to choose
the right Spanish language learning software that will help make learning Spanish
easy. It's time to get going with making 'friends' with Spanish. I was going to say
'conquer' Spanish, but that didn't seem quite right. After all, I'm guessing that your goal is to build a
friendly relationship with others - others who speak Spanish.
Whether for business, the search for knowledge
or for pleasure, you are taking steps to understand another language, its people, and its culture.
What an awesome adventure!
In this report you will find reviews of four of the most popular language
learning software packages for learning Spanish. Also included are a couple of articles and a list
of resources. I hope they will help you in choosing the best approach for your learning adventure, and in your
ongoing progress. I wish you all the best. Now, let's get going with the reviews.
The learning packages are Rocket
Spanish, Rosetta Stone, Tell Me More, and Pimsleur.
Spanish founder Mauricio Evlampieff, was a native of
Chile whose family moved to the United States. He found himself
‘thrown’ into an English speaking school at the age of 12, so he can claim to have some experience learning a
foreign language. Years later he devised the Rocket course for friends who wanted to learn
Rocket Spanish is probably the most popular of the

incorporates conversation, grammar and vocabulary. The aim is to quick-start students in the world of
practical Spanish. The focus is on everyday situations you might find yourself in as a visitor

organizations, schools and home schools. The Rosetta web site is colorful and easy to navigate. Not a lot of
information is given about their approach on the site, but there are a number of videos that show happy customers
engaging with the software. I suppose this is to stay true to the vision of stressing immersion through hearing as
opposed to learning through reading.
