Learning Spanish online, anyone tried it?

Hey all,

I've just registered but have been lurking the forum for a couple of months now.
I recently came across this program for fast learning Spanish. I'd love to learn the language. But has anyone here tried this program? It's 100% online, which is the reason I'm tempted.

Here’s the article: http://ultimatespanishlessons.wordpress.com/

Would love to hear from you.

The Rocket Spanish DVDs have been great for me as far as personal programs go - this might be a good way to learn if you're highly motivated. For me, nothing comes close to the power of immersion programs in Central America. If you ever want to plan an Spanish study trip, I'd be happy to help.

Immersion is the best of course. But next to that I believe taking a class or tutoring. You need to *speak* Spanish with people to learn it. I don't see how online-only learning would work.

there are lots of resources now available on line which allow you to take one to one lessons with native speakers for about 10/ hour. i have done pimsleur(ok)and rocket spanish( better) as well as lessons in person and i think the online options - usually through skype- though not as good as immersion -are a good affordable option. openlanguage also has good online classes in several languages.

I've been working through the free lessons at Duolingo.com for an upcoming trip to Spain. I'm impressed with the way they set it up and I've learned a lot, to where I can read Spanish newspapers fairly well.

A survey indicated that it took the average student about 34 hours of study on Duolingo to progress roughly one semester level of college Spanish. In comparison it took about 55 hours with Rosetta Stone to improve by a semester level, and Rosetta Stone costs hundreds of dollars.

The thread is three months old - the OP has left the bldg (probably was advertising that course - and the thread was topped by a different advertiser . . .
