I read a few years ago that when a person gets older they should keep their mind sharp by learning a new language. I think that is the theory and I assume success of Rosetta Stone. Is there anyone out there who has actually learned a language from tapes or more accurately CDs?
Based on the $500 investment in Rosetta Stone language CDs, I am reminded about the old story of Arthur Murray, the dance studios; “Arthur Murray teaches you to dance your way to the poor house.”
I suspect if someone wants to buy the CDs, he or she should look at the nearest tag sale. They will be near the old Reader’s Digests collection, the vacuum cleaner, and the exercise equipment that went down to the basement after the best intentions were abandoned.
