  1. I like RS a lot. I like the immersion style of teaching. There is no spoken or written English in the lessons. Immersion and conversation are the only ways to become fluent in a language, IMO. I'm also doing Duolingo, but there is a lot of translation between English and Spanish. It makes you do the translation in your head instead of teaching you to think Spanish. The only complaint I have about RS is that their speech recognition software could be a lot better. Sometimes if I completely mangle a sentence, it gives me a perfect score. RS is only $120 per year, and I don't plan to use it for over that. There is also an iPhone app that is free. It will cause a little eye strain.
  2. I think it is a subtlety of Latin American Spanish. A solas means to be alone, and it can have romantic connotations. Solo means without any help, technically.
  3. Hello all. I used to speak reasonably good Spanish in my teens, but that was 50 years ago and I have lost much of it. I'm taking a Rosetta Stone course to brush up, and a lot is coming back to me. I need to improve my conversational Spanish, and I thought this would be a good place to do that.
