Some Foreign Language Strategies

Some Foreign Language Strategies
We used Power Glide and loved it.  Rosetta Stone is often available through the library system (i.e., free.)  Foreign languages are available at co-ops.  Some people wait until Running Start or dual enrollment in community college, and take foreign language there.  It only takes 2 college quarters or semesters to meet the requirements for foreign language if you do it that way.What are some of your favorite foreign language strategies?
