Rosetta Stone??

Anybody have a copy of the software laying around not being used?
I thought somebody had the spanish ones that were getting passed around here?

Decided brushing up would be a nice summer project but the books/tapes from the library aren't cutting the mustard.

I 'obtained' a copy and a lot of language packages.

Just list them and I'll try uploading them somewhere.

Can you upload Spanish Level 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 if you have it? If not all of them, any of them will work. Gracias!

Which Library? I searched in prarie cat system and didn't find them.

I used the play-a-way player but it would eat a AA battery in 2-3 hours.

I would like to find Spanish 1, 2, and 3.

Italian 1,2, and 3 would be great as well.

Whatever is easiest for you. I can bring a stack of blank CD's to Portillos if you are going to bike night? My main focus is brushing up on spanish. I plan on doing some volunteer work helping with ESL classes and figure the more spanish I learn the better.

Any chance I can get in on this? I've thought about buying Rosetta Stone lately just so I can learn a second language. Doesn't matter what language, but if you have alot I'd love to try a few and see which ones I like...

Lol, your wife speaks spanish and you can't at least comprehend most of it over time?
All you need is about the basic root words and you'll know at least what they are talking about a little.

Yo, I'd like a copy or the link as well.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I'm from plainfield so I can swing by and grab the discs whenever if that works better. If you are close to the dowtown area we could meet out that way sometime too.

Also I could always grab caparzo's copy and send it to him in a padded mailer since evidently his bike must not be running....

Looks like I opened a can of worms... sorry about that!

Just reply with "No se amigo" ...pronounced " No say ahhmmeegoo"..translates to "I don't know friend" Lol..say that to your wife everytime she starts talking or just say "Como/que" which either/or will suffice for "what?"
