UPDATE September 2012:
First, I want to address many of the comments left on the youtube video.
I was surprised to learn that a number of people have some animosity towards Rosetta and I do understand why.
There is virtually no instruction for learning German Grammar. The German grammar is quite complicated. The articles der, die and das are extremely important to sentence structure. Many words inside the sentence will be modified according to these articles as well as Akusativ, Nominativ and Dativ clauses.
This complicated array of grammar is difficult to understand / learn via the Rosetta Stone method.
I have found programs that give you full conversations and then break them down in English to be the best and easiest to follow / learn from.
German Pod has this and it also explains the grammar more than Rosetta Stone. It may not be a complete replacement for formal grammar instruction, but of the methods I have tried, it seems to offer the most promise.
Since you can sign up for a free lifetime membership and there are a lot of good free resources there, it is a great place to start or continue your German language training.
After trying several programs, and having real experience in Germany, I now recommend the GermanPod program
In my youtube video I explained that Rosetta Stone does work but only if…..
Here is the video:
Please keep in mind that Rosetta is expensive and perhaps not as effective as some other methods.
I am currently suggesting that a free account at GermanPod is probably a better way to go
Here is an additional video that shows a few pictures from Germany. Motivation to learn German!
