My wife has been wanting to learn Italian for some time now, in order to be able to fully communicate with my family. For the most part, my family speaks mostly italian, with bits of broken english. My mom does a great job of translating for her at the dinner table, but she would rather be able to hold conversations one her own.
Enter Rosetta Stone. I've heard nothing but good things about their software and learning program, and with the introduction of their iPad app, it seemed like a great way for her to learn on-the-go.
Over the next few months, I will be writing a series of reviews on Rosetta Stone, and my wife's progress in learning Italian. This is an article I wish I would have been able to find, so I'm glad I'm the one writing it. We just received our software the other day.. More details and a through review will follow. Stay tuned.
