>>>Angela asks: "We purchased Rosetta Stone Spanish 1 and didn't do so well last year. We will 'go at it' with more gusto this year, but my question is, this course is supposed to be a 2 year course although it is only Spanish 1. Do you have any knowledge of the credit value?"<<<
Angela, I know that a two year course at high school level would be two full high school credits. I also know that the catalog may say "Spanish 1" and really mean college level Spanish 1. If it is college level, it may be two full high school credits. But I haven't actually researched the credit value of Rosetta Stone.
Rosetta stone is very methodical, and for computer-lovers, but there are many other ways to learn foreign languages besides looking at a split-screen computer all day. Whatever curriculum you choose, though, the key is to do foreign language for AT LEAST 15 minutes every day. That way you won't have to keep re-learning day after day, but can build on your knowledge from the previous day. That 15 minute thing is really key!
