    I've taken Spanish for 6 years. How they teach it in my district sucks. In 6th and 7th grade, you learn really basic crap. In 8th grade you learn about ever form of verb conjugation. It's too much to fully comprehend in one year. Ever since high school, I've actually forgotten more and more every year. I would have dropped before I started for this year but I figured it would be easier to get by knowing nothing. That way I wouldn't have to take it in college where it would likely be more serious.

    I've been learning German on my own for a while now and I'd like to think that I'm doing pretty ok so far, but it's kinda hard to tell, because I never got the chance to talk to anyone in german.

    I took French I, II, and III only because I wanted the Advanced Diploma. I'll brag and say that I took it, but that's about it.
    If anything, I want to learn Korean or Japanese, so I can understand when my mom speaks it. I can only slightly understand Korean.

    So does anyone have a particular learning method they'd recommend? I've read reviews on the Rosetta Stone cd's and most of them were bad. I'm thinking of trying Daniel Tammet's program.
