      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. Rosetta Stone? [MULTILINGUAL]

    Yes. RS is garbage. That is why they spend so much money on advertising. Get duolingo and Pimsleur if you really want to learn a language.
  2. Great app to learn any language!

    Yes, it is Rosetta Stone. The amount of money RS spends on advertising ought to tell people how useless their method is. Anything that really works doesn't need to be plastered everywhere and shoved down your throat. They make all sorts of bad assumptions about adult learning. I have never heard of anyone who got anywhere with RS. The reviews on the web of actual users are almost universally negative. I found the program horrible. A much better app is Duolingo.
  3. Words like schwer

    I am currently learning German with Duolingo. I came across the following: der Junge ist schwer. How on Earth can a person tell if the sentence is supposed to mean: "The boy is heavy" or "The boy is difficult"? The concepts aren't even close. I have noticed other examples like this as well.
